About Me

CURRENT MISSION

"Dai diamanti non nasce niente dal letame nascono i fiori" F. De Andre; translated is roughly "Nothing grows from diamonds, flowers grow from manure"

ABOUT ME

I like mostly heavy music and electronic, I prefer whiskey (Laphroaig is my favourite), Sambuca, wine and beer more than cocktails and sweet drinks. Sometime I think I was born in the wrong place...as I have been loving Scandinavian countries since I'm child (Sweden is my fave); I like almost everything from there (music, culture, design, architecture, people and Carl Linnaeus). Beside this, I think Europe, with all the problems and differences (I like it because of this), it's the best place to live in and where people are cooler! I could live in any of the countries without missing home!I'm maybe not that party animal, I like to hang out with friends having drinks and meeting new, interesting and funny people, I like live music and do not despise nightclubbing sometime (with all the implications :)). I can party hard, but I know the limits and I'm always able to go back home walking on my own feet. I also like spending time at home reading, playing, music listening and movies watching. Last but not least, I am agnostic and not really interested in religions (apart for the historic/cultural perspective).

PHILOSOPHY

We have just this planet... try to keep it clean: save, recycle, reuse!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I like travelling on my own and meet local people!So couchsurfin is the best way to travel and to feel at home wherever in the world!
It changed my way of life, now I'm addicted to it!

Interests

I couldn't live without Rock'n'Roll and all its derivatives! I like to play loud my Gibson with tons of distorsion! I Like cinema and travelling (i would not be here otherwise:)). I like politics, many people can say it's bullshit but it's about our lives, do not let someone else choosing for you! I'm a biologist and I like natural sciences rather than biotechnologies. Plants and insects are my passion. I like trains and when I will retire, if possible, I would like to make a nice diorama with stations, mountains, tunnels etc.

Music, Movies & Books

I like lots of movies but my favourite is definitively "The Big Lebowsky" it's a lifestyle more than just a movie for me! As second comes "The Kingdom" from Lars Von Trier. My favourite directors: Coen Brothers, Woody Allen, Martin Scorsese, Spike Lee, Jim Jarmush, Ciprì & Maresco, Tim Burton, Monthy Python and many others. I like old Italian movies ("Il sorpasso")and also some new ones: Gomorra, A.C.A.B.! Ah, I can't forget this: Princess Mononoke!It's hard to list my favourite bands or artists but I can say Tool, Kyuss, Slayer, Carcass, Wolves In The Throne Room, Queens of The Stone Age, Motorpsycho, Kvelertak, Black Sabbath, Electric Wizard, Ufomammut, Graveyard, Alice In Chains, Isis, Neurosis, Refused, Arctic Monkeys, Pavement, Sonic Youth, The Klaxons, The Decemberists, Bjork, Sigur Ros, Godspeed you Black Emperoror!, The Knife, Anticon, Antipop Consortium, Arcade Fire, Jim O'Rourke, Johnny Cash, Daft Punk, Chemical Brothers, The Bloody Beetroots just to give an idea of the music I like. I would say I like almost any genre of music but reggae or ska get me bored usually after 30', I can't stand raggamuffin, some sort of popular/world/folk music and Italian popular singers (Laura Pausini, Eros Ramazzotti, Zucchero, Tiziano Ferro etc.). I prefer indipendent music more than MTV's stuff, but sometime I like also some "catcthy" song.
Want to know more about my music preferences? Just check my last.fm: http://www.lastfm.it/user/peppebdf
Book: I like James Ellroy, Douglas Adams, Philip K. Dick, JC Ballard, Luther Blisset (or Wu-Ming), Dostoevskij, Bulgakov, Stefano Benni, Swedish death metal (Daniel Ekeroth).

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Travelling one month around Mexico with my backpack and a Routard guide, without any plan! I only knew when I had to come back!
Sonisphere festival near Zurich with Linda, re-baptized Muddysphere then.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach: some guitar chords, cooking pasta aldente, rolling cigarettes (or something else;)), recognize plants, some Italian.
I would like to learn: some advanced guitar chords, French, Swedish and almost whatever I don't know!!!

What I Can Share With Hosts

I am willing to meet nice people and make new friends. I do not host just to provide a free place to stay, even if I host during the weekdays I always try to set up some free time to hang out, have some drinks and and introduce my friends.
