About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To do more than just exist

ABOUT ME

Hmm I hate describing myself but I'll try and be as open and honest as possible. Here goes:

I'm 24 years old and living in a small town in South Wales. I've just finished my job and am getting ready to head off travelling for a while.

I'd say I'm a relatively easy going chilled out person. I like to think I can always see the good in people even if they can't see it themselves.

I've become more and more disillusioned with the world, my surroundings and my current life lately. I feel I need to get away from it all and realise what it is I want from life 'cos it sure as hell isn't what I've already got.

I think I'm at the stage in my life where I need to get out there and try and do something that makes a difference. Not that I know what that is yet myself but I'm sure I'll figure it out soon enough...

PHILOSOPHY

::::-The Future Is Unwritten-::::

Nothing substitutes experience!

"We're going nowhere slowly but we're seeing all the sights"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Travelling at moment so no couch sorry.

Should have couch available when I return though (whenever that may be)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

CS virgin here. Unfortunately I haven't been able to participate yet but hopefully that will change soon.

Interests

Music in one form or another is pretty much my life. I use Ableton Live for production and usually make hiphop, dnb or hardtek but sometimes I try and fuse lots of different styles together. I also love remixing and mashing up other peoples music.

Love live music, especially small intimate gigs.

Also: movies, documentaries, reading, philosophy, politics, The Universe and it's many mysteries, alternative culture; squats, freeparties, teknival, TAZ etc.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: documentaries, indie films, sci fi that makes you think, anything that's not 'too Hollywood' really I suppose.

Some bands/articts off the top of my head: Operation Ivy, The Clash, Joe Strummer, Frank Turner, Sublime, Crass, Rancid, Against All Authority, Leftover Crack, Choking Victim, Big D & The Kids Table, The Slackers, Propagandhi, The Specials, Amen, At The Drive In, Rage Against The Machine, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Wu Tang, Non Phixion, Immortal Technique, Big L, Lord Finesse, KRS One, Skillz, Jedi Mind Tricks, Nine, El-P, Braintax, Chester P, Taskforce, Foreign Beggars, Jehst, Klashnekoff....

Then on the dance/electronic side of things: mostly dnb, jungle, hardcore, breakcore + hardtek although I'll dance to anything if I'm intoxicated enough =)

Books: Sci fi, biographies, philosophy, ideology. Anything that's well written and sucks me in.

Teach, Learn, Share

Maybe I could teach you a bit of basic music production? Not a lot else I can offer really unless all the useless info in my head isn't actually that useless?

I'd love to learn whatever I can from whoever I surf with.. From new languages to anything else they are willing to teach
