Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I started couchsurfing by going to see shows and meeting people in the towns that would let me crash. I've done some couchsurfing while backpacking through europe as well.

Music, Movies, and Books

No god but God, Reza Aslan .....Tons and tons of books, mostly poetry, Wakoski, Giovanni, G. Brooks, Bukowski, Lucille Clifton, cummings... Novels as well, but let frequent, The Confederancy of Dunces, all Vonnegut, T. Morrison, etc etc

Movies the usual independent sorts

Music....too many to mention always Tom Waits but always be mentioned. I think it's a musical commandment.
