About Me

CURRENT MISSION

preserve bad habits, enjoy the craziness in life and make an Alienzombie Movie

ABOUT ME

I changed this part here so often that I can't tell who's crazier me or the person who ask this question. Must have spend hours sitting in front of this page try to figure out who the fuck I am. Then I usually get annoyed wasting so much precious life time staring at this life sucking screen and start to write weird shit. Anyway I can't stand being bored so I try everything at least once, except gay sex, I save that for next life and taking Heroin is on the list after I turn 60.
If you really feel the need to categorize me, I guess you can place me somewhere between a hippy who pursuits peace and happiness and a self destructive punk...always depending on my current state of mind but I guess both sides live the rebellion.
According to my Mom I also have a slight tendency to pick the most extreme ways of living. Personally I would rather say I'm just very curious and when I hear something that interests me I prefer to experience it myself before I trust someones opinion blindly.
So before I left home I tried to sell all the shit I collected over a decade, just to feel what it's like to have nothing. Thought I could finance a long trip around the world with the extra cash but when I told my friends about it, they basically over ran my place and took everything I couldn't fit in my backpack. So a good feeling and a lot of happy faces was all I made of all the crap.
Did the trip anyway and spend 19 amazing month living on the road, experienced a lot of crazy shit and arrived in Sydney basically bankrupt with a dirty backpack full of way to small and very smelly cloth. Took me 3 washing to get the stink out and 4 days to find a new job (I still wonder if that's somehow related to the washing) Anyway, I figured that Aussies are so ridiculous over paid that it's probable a great place to save up money and continue my trip a bit later...when I'm rich. That's 4 years ago now cuz I forgot to consider my bad habits and my proclivity for stupid investments, so I usually spend my money on the day I get paid, most of it ends up in Clubs, Pubs and everything that sounds fun and shortens your life span so if you like to go out I can definitively show you some cool shit around Sydney.
Well, if I like you.
Guess my biggest obsession is music, as you can see when you come to the part with "my favorites" (got a bit side tracked there)so interesting tunes are our number one currency but we also accept six packs, toilet paper or drawings, in case you wanna bribe us or somethin.
For all organ harvester, psychopath or racists I have to mention that my new housemate is half a quarter Maori or something like that so he will scare you out with his Warrior dance if you turn out to be a shit cunt.
Everyone else is welcome.
Ok enough now, I'm obviously not blessed with outstanding writing skills so before I write the worlds shittiest book I'll stop here.

PHILOSOPHY

"Don't make decisions out of fear." is always popping up in my head when I have to make an important decision. It's usually a bright neon colored sign.

"Everyone gets the same chance, you start as my friend so don't fuck it up." Is a simple rule I live by as I don't judge anyone by skin color, his god, who he loves nor what he had for lunch, so if u do go fuck urself.

"Dying sucks Butt" one of my favorites
but to be honest I don't really care when I die
some ppl make it to a hundred and still haven't lived as much as I did. Figured that out while I worked in a hospital. I met shit loads of ppl who just had a few days left but a handful of them seemed not scared to shake hands with the grim reaper. Very powerful and life changing experience to escort someone to the gates of Valhalla...still don't wanna write under amazing things I've done "I saw ppl die" might sound a bit creepier then I intend to be and its too early for me to catch up with father death anyway so he can fuck right off and come back when he's got an appointment up front. Lets say today in 96 years, after lunch, as I still have shit loads of stuff on my bucket list and I like to catch enough sleep and a good meal before a new adventure is about to start.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I supported this page with my hard earned money back in the days, when it was just a few hippy/nerds, living in moms basement probable smoking weed all day and spinning ideas how to make this world a better place, I also host, I surf, I spread the word, as personal pub/club guide I'm the SHIAT, I go to and organize meetings, in particular Sydneys best coz only "Trash Movie Night" (I do have help coz it's hard work) and I even provide you with the weather...I can't do more or can I??

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Great spot to tell the tale of how I found out about this site...One of my best friends, Heinz found CS for me while surfing the net for porn and really sick shit you don't even wanna know about. The second he realized how amazing/crazy or with his word "ridiculously retarded" this idea of opening your home to complete strangers (or again his words "potential Ax murderers/rapists and religious Missionaries") is my face must have popped up in his head so he send me the link, with a bunch of other crap you still don't wanna know about, but as a matter of fact I have to thank this fat lazy bastard to have met loads of crazy,funny and inspiring people.
(he still hasn't tried it once and calls me weird)

anyway of all the surfers I've met over the years I probably think Danny B "Prince of Hollywood" is the one who inspired me most cause he really just don't give a shit what ppl think of him and I met him at a point in my life when I needed that for myself. I still try to copy his mad tour guide skills when I show ppl my City, so pack your bag dude and come over. I still owe you a tour.
I would say bring Tommy too but we both know he will probable be shoot by Sky-Marshals for public exposure in 30 000 feet :)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

-feel in love-lived with a tribe in Vanuatu-danced on the edge of a volcano
-lost my feeling for time-lived in a cave-patted a shark-traveled back in time, then the Mushrooms wore off-saw a rainbow "AT NIGHT!!! random fact: its black and white"-finished the Sydney-Marathon-signed up @ Couchsurfing

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to swear in German. Which will be important if they ever start WW3
or some basics about rock-climbing which would be handy when they lose again and have to rebuild the Berlin wall.

I will definitely share my wonderful sense of humour.

I wanna learn esperanto, so I can stop using Google Translate
and I really wanna learn how to spit fire :)
