Allô? Allô? Is there anyone interested in a English-French tandem penpal ship? (Vous écrivez des lettres dans le français et je fais ainsi dans l'anglais ?) When I was at school I learned French for six years. Unfortunately and to my complete distress I quited learning afterwards. En ce moment je travaille comme une guide pour les touristes français, donc I´m not that bad. But I´d like to improve!!!
Private swaps, especially book swaps are always welcome!
I´m Atropos, a proud pirate in this strange, surreal world, searching for brothers and sisters in arms. ( ^^ And a bit crazy, you see?)
I think of myself as a world traveler and I just spent a year in Latvia as a kind of German teacher. Besides German, I speak English, French and some Latvian and Russian. Right now I study comparative literature and Slavic languages at university. I also learned some Hebrew a while ago.
I love writing long letters full of my thoughts, talking with you about god and the world as we say in Germany, that means about serious themes, but also about your favorite cake, the last birthday, the all-day-life.
I´m both: turtle and cat, shining blue and darkest black, loving and hating...Just Life! Most of my lifetime, I´m friendly and very open-minded. I don´t like everyone, but no-one has to like me. I´m always happy about a good discussion.
My interests are very wide-spread : I love Reading (almost everything), Philosophy, Drawing, Writing (letters and sometimes shortstorys), Listening to some very different kinds of music, theatre and making silly stuff with friends, to give you a short list of things I do in my free time.
At the end, I´m just as normal as the rest of us. I like a shower in the morning and a dark coffee for breakfast! : ) I won´t bite you!
"...But they had danced down the streets like dingledodies and I shambled after them as I´ve been doing all my life after people who interests me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk , mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everything goes Aww! What did they call such young people in Goethe´s Germany?!"
Jack Kerouac: "On the road"
Books are important to me. I read prose and poetry, dramatically epic and incredible frolic ....everything, that is well written...and a lot of utter crap, too! Some favorites are: Tolkien, Kafka, Ray Bradbury, Dostojewski, Terry Pratchett, Agatha Christie, Bulgakov, Steven Brust, Alexandre Dumas, Victor Hugo, Kerouac and many many more. I´m not a fan of thrillers or romantic novels (chick-lit) though. That´s not my cup of tea.
At the moment I´m in love with old pirate novels (eg. by Rafael Sabatini) and utterly heroic crap.
You want to make me happy? Tell me about your recent reading experiences. The crazier, the better!
I´m also addicted to poems. I´ve no favorite poet, but I adore the works of R.M. Rilke, W.B. Yeats, Friedrich Nietzsche, Joachim Ringelnatz, Wladimir Majakowski and Charles Baudelaire.
I´m BOOKcrossing because books just want to be free
I´m no musician myself, but without music, my life would be boring. I like Metal, Folk, Classical, Jazz, Country, and a lot of film soundtracks, too.
I´m crazy enough to worship old heroes like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Doors as well as Fred Astaire, Ray Charles and Louis Armstrong.
I prefer small, but fantastic artists like Eric Fish, Das Holz, Denkerskind, Samsas Traum, Coppelius, The Chamber, Deine Lakaien...A Lot!
