A few years ago I decided to settle in Paris after having lived in Stockholm, Brussels, Vienna and NYC. I like Paris a lot but it's the sort of town you don't want to be alone in for too long--which is why I joined OKCupid. So if you're tired of feeling lonely too, drop me a line.

MUSIC: I hate Peter Murphy's voice, but I'll have to acknowledge bauhaus's cover of Waiting For The Man is probably my favourite musical recording ever, because it is raw power. (I'm referring to their live show in Paris when Nico jumped up on stage, grabbed the mike, thus luckily drowning Peter Murphy's whining with her sexy Nazi accent.) You can listen to it here:
(BTW, I totally hate Lou Reed.)
Ratatat's remix of Biggie's Party And Bullshit is one of my all time favourites, I love old school rap, but I also appreciate Satanic black metal stuff like Dark Funeral (bass player Lord Ahriman aka "The Nose" is a personal friend). I rarely clean my apartment but when I do I listen to übercheezy stuff like Shirley Bassey, Dolly Parton or ABBA for motivation. Similarly, I love Mahler, Brahms, Wagner and Bach (especially the Concerto for Harpsichord in F minor, the one played by Woody Allen in Hannah And Her Sisters: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLrNhMGPQtk )

As you will have realized by now, I have many flaws. But at least I can NOT be accused of being narrow-minded when it comes to music!!
