My self-summary
Un splendido quarantenne, come diceva Moretti ! Alright I'll try and be a bit more humble :)
In any case, I'm a bloke who likes to talk, go around old Paris, and explore the world in words, when not in person. I spent eleven years in London, with fond memories.
I'm also clearly of the left, active in movements against racism, for social justice, and the rest of it.
I play the piano and the guitar, whether jazz or rock. If you sing, or play an instrument, I'm into that !
I am what they call (polyamorous), just so you know/ je suis adepte des relations non-exclusives, pas forcément insignifiantes pour autant - on peut aimer plusieurs personnes à la fois.... (how's that for translation ? discuss)

Je m'aperçois qu'il y a pas mal de francophones ici quand même. Mais je parie que vous lisez toutes assez bien l'anglais pour que j'aie pas besoin de tout traduire non ? You'll let me know ;) Et en tous cas, moi aussi je parle cette langue qui est d'ailleurs à la base la mienne avant que....
What I’m doing with my life
Being politically active, playing the piano, reading books about Russian history, chimpanzees, discovering people, and, er, working.
I’m really good at
Listening. Well, you can always get better, but I do have a taste for people's stories, and I try to be attentive to people's wants, discomforts, hesitations, etc.
The first things people usually notice about me
Tall, wearing glasses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Trotsky, Cervantes, Jonathan Coe, Conrad, Greil Marcus, Virginie Despentes, Proust, Fluide Glacial, Susan Faludi, Marx, Pacôme Thiellement
Filmwise : King Kong, The manchurian candidate, Singing in the Rain, Pierrot le Fou, a lot of golden age Hollywood. Musicwise : Beatles, Coltrane, Motorhead, Sexy Sushi, Guillaume de Machaut, Larry Williams.
Six things I could never do without
Books. Films. Records. Walking about. Food. Air. Water. That's seven.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Relationships, in all their variegated aspects. Conversation, dynamics, change... also relationships as politics, dominance, ideology, culture....
On a typical Friday night I am
thinking of going out to the movies or drinking with friends or going to a political debate, then realising I've done that all week and that I'm tired and that I'd rather stay home and read.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You should message me if
- you play any instrument, or sing and fancy a singalong or jam
- you want to discuss emancipatory politics
- you want to discuss relationships in general, open relationships in particular
- you're looking for someone to go to the movies with
- you want someone to walk around Paris

(This is all "either/or", of course :) )
The two of us
