by direct experience.
I studied theoretical physics & philosophy of physics, mainly
because I thought I should start my quest for knowledge somewhere I

Crime and Punishment, Dark Pools, Watervrees bij een verdrinking,
Gullivers Travel, Max Havelaar, 1984, ...

David van Reybroek
Movies: Donnie Darko, Old Boy, The Shittyness of Things, C'est
Arrivé Pres de Chez vous (Man Bites Dog), A Bout de Souffle!!!
(Breathless), Gegen Die Wand (Against The Wall)... Suffice to say I
often find international (apparently that's how they call
non-English spoken) films mildly more intriguing than the average
Hollywood blockbuster. However I absolutely condemn the
German/French practice of dubbing those films! I'm a big fan of
Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong, Serge Gainsbourg, Jaques Brell, Four
Tet, Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin, Two Gallants, Tom Waits, The
Bony King of Nowhere (hence username) ...
