If not yourself, who would you be ::
Where would you like to live ::
I've always been drawn to either immense metropoles like tokyo where there seems to be a real value to individuality, or places like norway or finland; there's something attractive in their lifestyle, can't put the finger on it ;)
Your favourite colour and flower ::
i'm a graphic designer so i can't really have a favorite color, but these days, mostly browns and pale blues, or bright blues and purples.
Flowers i just love flowers, i guess i can't say i don't love camomiles hehe ( camomillemusic shameless plug ) but orchids and cherry blossoms and lotus and simple flowers like lilas ( english ? ) or margerites.

Jorge Luis Borgez, Alessandro barricho,
Your favourite poets ::
i've been raised on french and american rap music, so i must say that's where i get all my poetry from.
Your favourite heroes in fiction ::
i'm a huuuge comic book fan, but to single out a true hero i can't really pinpoint. I mean it might be cliché but Superman is all i ever wanted to be ;)
Your favourite painters and composers ::
Mark Rothko, his landscapes are so dynamic and real and at the same time there's an impenetrable distance to them.
Musically, there's too much, but i always feel touched and bothered and dreamy when listening to godspeed you ! black emperor, world's end girlfriend, stars of the lid and explosions in the sky
Your favourite heroes in real life ::
on a professional standpoint, Todd McFarlane started years ago to draw a character and now those simple drawings became a huge multi media empire.
Somehow it tells me that i can do whatever i want if i have enough drive.
And in a place where there are no heroes ( quebec, Canada ), we all look towards our hockey team, the montreal Canadiens. The sport has a much more socio-political meaning here than anything in the past 100 years.

Whoever taught us that women are more than our equals.

George Washington, the entire Bourbon family across time, the christian church and their popes, alexander the great.

Tao, Lluvia, Sasha, Xavier, Sarah, Sam
Your pet aversion ::
I just wish i could have a dog, preferably a small bastard dog, but i have a small place and allergies :/
The reform which you most estimate ::
I'm not a very political person, but here in quebec, we're in dire need of an educational reform, our people are underqualified and overeducated.

Falling from someplace real high to have enough time to feel like i'm flying.

Nostalgic, melodramatic, as usual :) and lazy beyond anything the human race as ever seen hehe.
