About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Deconstructing Deconstruction

ABOUT ME

FIRST OF ALL: IF YOU ARE SEARCHING FOR A TYPICAL CHILEAN, I TELL YOU RIGH AWAY I GOT THE WRONG COUCH :)

I'm a modern man. A man for the millenium. Digital and smoke free. A diversified multicultural postmodern deconstructionist, politically, anatomically, and ecologically incorrect. I've been uplinked and downloaded, I've been inputted and outsourced. I know the upside of downsizing I know the downside of upgrading. I'm a high tech lo-life. A cutting-edge, state-of-the-art, bi-coastal multitasker and I can give you a gigabyte in a nanosecond. I'm new wave but I'm old school and my inner child is outward bound. I'm a hotwired, heatseaking, warmhearted cool customer, voice activated and biodegradable. I interface with my database and my database is in cyberspace, so I'm interactive, I'm hyperactive, and from time to time I'm radioactive. Behind the eight ball, ahead of the curve, riding the wave, dodging the bullet, and pushing the envelope. I'm on point, on task, on message, and off drugs. I got no need for coke and speed. I got no urge to binge and purge. I'm in the moment, on the edge, over the top, but under the radar. A high concept, low profile, medium range ballistic missionary. A streetwise smartbomb. A top-gun bottom feeder. I wear power ties; I tell power lies; I take power naps; I take victory laps. I'm a totally ongoing bigfoot, slamdunk rain maker with a pro-active outreach, a raging workaholic, a working rage-a-holic, out of rehab and in denial. I got a personal trainer, a personal shopper, a personal assistant, and a personal agenda. You can't shut me up, you can't dumb me down, cause I'm tireless and I'm wireless. I'm an alpha-male on beta-blockers. I'm a non-believer and an overacheiver, laid-back but fashion foward, up front, down home, low rent, high mantinence, supersize, long lasting, high definition, fast acting, oven ready, and built to last. I'm a hands on, footloose, knee-jerk headcase, prematurely postraumatic, and I have a love child who sends me hate mail. But I'm feeling; I'm caring; I'm healing; I'm sharing; a supportive, bonding, nurturing, primary caregiver. My output is down, but my income is up. I take a short position on the long bond and my revenue stream has its own cash flow. I read junk-mail; I eat junk food; I buy junk bonds; I watch trash sports. I'm gender specific, captial intensive, user friendly, and lactose intolerant. I like rough sex; I like tough love; I use the f-word in my email, and the software on my hard drive is hardcore; no soft porn. I bought a microwave at a minimall; I bought a minivan at a megastore. I eat fast food in the slow lane. I'm toll free, bite size, ready to wear, and I come in all sizes; a fully equipped, factory authorized, hospital tested, clinically proven, scientifically formulated medical miracle. I've been pre-washed, pre-cooked, pre-heated, pre-screened, pre-approved, pre-packaged, post-dated, freeze-dried, double wrapped, vacuum packed, and I have an unlimited broadband capacity. I'm a rude dude but I'm the real deal, lean and mean, cocked, locked, and ready to rock; rough, tough, and hard to bluff. I take it slow; I go with the flow; I ride with the tide; I got glide in my stride; driving and moving, sailing and spinning, jiving and grooving, wailing and winning. I don't snooze, so I don't lose. I keep the pedal to the metal and the rubber on the road. I party hardy and lunchtime is crunchtime. I'm hanging in, there ain't no doubt, and I'm hanging tough, over and out.

PHILOSOPHY

- WWZJD (what would Zombie Jesus do?) - Chuck Norris's Lifestyle - Thelema - Nihility - The Customer is Always an Asshole and I'm a firm Believer of the phylosophy of a ruling class, specially since I rule

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

hosting, surfing, travelling, you name it

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Well I've done it almost all, hosted, surfed, travelled and meetings attending. I think i'm missing a massive meeting/travelling, but I guess that'll come eventually, meanwhile work is keeping me from it.And most of the experiences have been pretty awesome, except sometimes running into some random douche, but hey, that's everywhere and not solely on CS

Interests

Music: of course, I'm nuts about Music, is what makes me going every day, and I can talk about it non-stop, so I better rest my case.

Tattoos: love them, but ran out of ideas on what to get next, I love the fact that the minute you get Tattooed you become a walking Canvas, and also the fact that you almost always create a bond with the artist, because you're putting part of your body at his/her will, so it helps you develop huge levels of trust in people.

Travels: Of course, or else why joining the site in the first place?. always got the traveling flame inside, so when i'm not traveling to other places, I bring the other places to me by knowing their people (so this time the mointain IS going to Mahoma, =P)

Comics, Videogames, MTG: Big nerd here, and found out that most travelers share at least one or various of these, from superheros to european comics (a huge Marvel freak, most of all).

I'm also having a small success playing and writing articles about Magic The Gathering locally (so far), so there's that.

And i like a lot of differents stuff also, but right now i'm kinda lazy and out of ideas to update, like: movies, Burt Reynolds, Chuck Norris, to say the f word as much as i can, jokes, languages and learn how to say cheers in every one of them, and so far I got:

Spanish: Salud English: Cheers Deutsch/Dutch: Proost Belgium: Op uw gezondheid (Flemish side tho) Finnish: Maljanne, Kippis French: A Votre Santé Polish/Russian: Na zdrowie Italian: Salute Portuguese: Saúde Scandinavia: Skål

Music, Movies & Books

Metal! Black, Death, Doooom, some Goth and Psychobilly, German hip hop (specially die Fantastischen Vier und Peter Fox) Arabic and Norge/Celtic folk music, and by being a music student, I listen to almost everything, so if you look into my music collection you'll find things you never even knew that exist... Lately I'm enjoying and been a complete fan of Chisu, so I guess Finnish pop should be added to the list into bands or some I'll put: TiamatPanterADissectionMoonspellLamb Of GodArcturusBorknagarShiningtalking about movies, some directors I enjoy:Kevin SmithDavid FinsherDarren AronofskyTerry GillianQuentin TarantinoRobert RodriguezAlex de la IglesiaThe Farrely BrothersThe Coen Brothersand many many more movies, could be 3 days naming stuffs.about books, some authors I enjoy:H.P. LovecraftAlesteir CrowleyCharles BukowskyEdgar Allan PoeAlejandro JodorowskyTolkienC.S. LewisMax BrooksAnd The Dragonlance Novels (basically anything that have to do with D&D) Weird enough, with books I just read whatever, I don't care if it's good or bad, if it cross my way I just read it, some things take longer if too dense, but I'll get there eventually.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

We Rickrolled an entire Karaoke bar with another CSer once, drinked a glass of whisky with ice taken out of the Glacier in Laguna San Rafael. the Gothemburg free cultural festival. Berlin.

Teach, Learn, Share

"But there are men for whom the unatteinable has a special attraction. Usually they are not experts: their ambitions and fantasies are strong enought to brush aside the doubts wich more cautious men might have. Determination and will are their strongest weapons. At best such men are regarded as eccentric; at worst, mad." Walt Unsworth

don't judge a book for its cover

I'm very into learning Deutsch, and Norge, and Suomi so if you can help with that, it'll be.. great

and I can Teach you how to play guitar, bass (soon will add Ukelele and Berimbau to the list) and musical theory, and if you want it really really badly, I can also teach you Spanish, but I find it rather boring. I can also teach you how to play MTG, but you might not want to open that pandora box.
