To boldly go where no man has gone before, to discover new worlds and new civilisations, or to just watch old reruns of Kirk on the tube...
Alright here's the low-down : Julie’s a country-girl migrated down to Montreal from Abitibi region (think snow, and LOTS of it), she’s finished her bachelor’s in Film here in and is currently working on a documentary exposing the Quebecer Rockabilly “scene” in Rockabilly 514.
Nic’s the ennemie’s son, so to speak. You see his old man WAS an engineer/geologist for a major American oil company… Boooo… Ya but on the up-side, this father of his got to travel like crazy and live the Indian-Jones-esque life style. Which in turn meant that Nic got to travel a lot himself from his wee-early years. And the life-style stuck really, seein’ as how Nic still on the go today.
So it’s 2006 in Montreal when we met and lo and behold, now we’re goin’ out hehe
What else ?… Euhm.
Nic : I've a bit of an eclectic personality I guess. But hey it's cool, I pull it off haha. Until recently I played lead guitar and vocals in a local punk/oi band, which was great 'cause I love music. The one thing I probably love more is drawin’. Illustration. You get to visualise and dream things up, it’s great. Which in term means I also draw whenever I can get the chance. Motorcyclin' when the weather here allows it, bon-fires in the country, pints of bitter at the pub, ah hell I don't know, ask me.
Julie: Erff I dunno.. I guess I’m more of a quiet person, I prefer listening to others, which is probably why I first wanted to be an archaeologist or an anthropologist but then I figured maybe it was a better idea to make some film studies since I always enjoyed writing stories and visual arts. I got a bit bored at first, but then I discovered documentaries, which is mostly what I want to do in life. I’m also fascinated by marginality, other ways of thinking, alternative lifestyle or just people with a story to tell. I just believe that you can’t judge a book by its cover.
I’m working as a video editor right now but I’m looking forward to start some photography courses.
To even try to sum this one up in a paragraph here is a complete joke. Not to mention it’s philosophy, it’s supposed to be discussed and debated right ? Back and forth like. Not to mention that we disagree on some of this stuff to begin with.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Tried it out for the first time in the summer of 2008. Which still makes us newbies hehe.
Music, History, Art, comic-books, architecture, anything with historical value really. Other than that, flicks when you're fortunate enough to actually stumble on one that's worth anything, Football : There can only be ONE United !, motorcycles and motorcycling, dirt-biking, graphisme, design, playin' with guns and buildin' camp fires haha etc.
- pub crawls
- visual arts
Teach, Learn, Share
I'm sure we've got quite a few experiences to share. They might not necessarily teach you anything, but they make for good stories at the very least. And hell if you want to get into the more technical side of things then we’re both educated and creative so, might even be able to go on about that as well hehe. For instance if you wanna hear a good recipe for vegetarian pasta stuffed eggplant, or find out how to play the solo off of Black Sabbath’s “Ironman”, or even debate weather or not Cocteau’s legacy really IS that important for modern cinema, I’m sure we can help out ;)
