If I could choose a superpower, it would be to make something out of nothing - oh wait! I have that power already. I believe in the ultimate power of ideas. I'm a geek, but I'm not geeky. I've been told I'm funny. I believe it because people laugh around me. I love to smile at strangers and friends alike. I'm hungry for experiences. I can only consume content so long before I feel the need to create content, for this reason I don't watch much TV or movies. Part of me wants to rip the lid right off of my life and see what flies out, the other part is much more deliberate. Helping others makes me feel good. Need a hand moving your couch or weeding your garden? I'm there. As time passes I become choosier, why waste time on things you don't love? I have dreams and I think yours are sacred. I like to support those who follow a passion. I will respect and embrace your contradictions because I'm aware of mine.
I think everything comes from an idea. I embrace paradox.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've helped put together a community house of 5 humans pursuing their dreams. Now I like to serve as a Vancouver tour guide.
Have cooked suppers for couchsurfers, have offered couches for surfers.
I'm a musician. I love talking metaphysics, religion and spirituality (but not the gross, pushy kind). I also like to play DnD or board games and crack goofy jokes. I write in a moleskine often. I read books too. Art exhibits are great, so are the performing arts. I love to practice with my band and play at open mics. I can't wait to play gigs! Sometimes I just sit somewhere and relax and do nothing and let things simmer. I meditate, work out, and work on personal development.
Music, Movies, and Books
Movies? Not so much. I'm all over the place with movies. I'll watch literally anything. I'm not passionate about them nor am I indifferent. Sometimes I love obscure experimental films which challenge one's thinking and then there's Crank 2 which is a blissful assault on the senses. I like Superheroes. They are a modern mythos. I guess I like movies more for the "hanging out with humans" aspect.
Books: Almost all non-fiction
I spent a lot of time reading all sorts of things and challenging my beliefs but lately I've enjoyed vertical edification. I don't like to debate for the sake of intellectual chest-thumping. Though I love a good paradigm shift and welcome diverging viewpoints and having new experiences I feel no compunction to convert or be converted. Share and let share.
Music: Music: Six Finger Satellite, Low, Retribution Gospel Choir, Mouse On Mars, Hella, Scud Mountain Boys, Yes, NIN, The Police, Trans Am, Supertramp, Martin Tielli, Sonic Youth, Amon Tobin, and there are many "amateur" youtube musicians that I follow. It takes a little bit of digging but there's some jewels in there.
I listen to a LOT of podcasts! Comedy, documentaries, personal development.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
There's this one time I was nothing, and now I exist. That's pretty amazing. Everything else is frosting!
Teach, Learn, Share
I can play guitar pretty good. I can speak french. I know a few different meditation techniques and I can read tarot cards. I'm also pretty good at rubbing my belly and tapping my head at the same time.
