    Of course, it's easy to dream when I'm a student, haha. But I have actually thought about it because I see everyone around me like that. And I said it's no big deal, but when I started working it was one of the most depressing times in my life, I would just come home every night and watch a tv show and listen to Roslyn from Bon Iver on repeat all night. I had no interest in doing anything, I just wanted to sleep forever, like in Sober. Then I discovered interpreting and finally it all made sense! I had found a way to avoid a fixed schedule and have really intense working periods instead. When I understood it meant largely expanding my general knowledge and always learning something new, traveling and getting way out of my comfort zone by speaking in public, I just knew. By the way, I finally started to listen to some of your recommendations. I get why you said The Fragile from NIN is so different from The Downward Spiral, I liked it so much more!I'm falling in love with ML's Bubblegum!

    How long have you been playing guitar? I can play the piano, although I haven't played in 10 years until recently when I learned pretty quickly how to play Rains of Castamere from Game of Thrones! I'm thinking of taking up the piano again this summer if I have the time. It relaxes me so much, I feel so good when I play. I get what you mean about the comfort zone, that's why I always challenge myself. The job I will have will definitely not allow me to stay in any kind of comfort zone. I don't think it's laziness, I think the fixed schedule messes with you sometimes, it kills your creative and spontaneous spirit. And it tires you, and the city tires you. When I started working for the first time, I couldn't wait for the weekend so I could just sleep. It's pretty sad. We have to go to great lengths to actually live and not just work and sleep. Whatever my job will be, I will try to do something different always, to make my life a work of art. I don't want to wake up feeling like a robot.

    I also need to recharge for the new school year, it will be my last and everything will be much harder than it's been until now, and it's been pretty hard so far so that's saying something, haha. It's so great that you are going to see your family! What do you love most about going there? Something more psychedelic and instrumental sounds great. One night I went to this concert and a post-rock band played in the beginning. One guy, one electric guitar and a lot of amplifiers. It was a very small venue and I was tired and a bit numbed out from the beer. There were strange images playing in the background. It put me in a very interesting mood. At one point I felt like I was lost in the forest and in another moment I felt I was on top of an iceberg. The floor was vibrating and people started to sit down! I don't think I'll ever forget that night, it was so great. The band was called Modern Ghosts of the Road, I'm pretty sure you can find his music for free.

    Wow that is so cool about Bruce Soord! Yeah, serendipity is my favorite word in the English language, actually! I love it. I didn't find the lyrics yet, but send me the link and I shall try to analyze, haha. I am always up for a challenge! I like how personal it is, and it's so beautiful to hear about your bandmates feeling like they have their own world. I haven't seen Map To The Stars yet, maybe I will. I really loved Interstellar! I saw it at the cinema some months ago and it was quite an experience. I work as a freelance translator, but I will be looking for something with a fixed schedule for the summer. Probably something in translations. I feel so useless when it's summer, haha. But it's not a sure thing, who knows what July might bring. I dream of a vacation for some months somewhere near the sea, where I can do whatever I want to, and take a break from the crazy studying and translating, just live a little and especially make art. I have so many emotions to process these days.

    I like how indeedly sounds, haha! I haven't yet watched Firefly, but it's been on my watchlist for a really long time. That shop sounds wonderful! I love to go to this used books store I've known for years, it's filled with that old-book smell and they play jazz in the background, I just love that atmosphere. I dream of having the time to watch everything and read everything and listen to everything. I plan on working this summer until the school year starts in autumn, so that seems pretty far away. Did you say you just started a new job? What's it like? Let me know if you got any of the books and we can discuss them! From what I gather, the rush you get on stage and the beautiful art you create makes it all worth it! If you had another band, what would you play? What kind of music lessons are you interested in?

    I swear to God, all week I had that line in my head "Don't go gentle into that good night/Rage, rage against the dying of the light". I was shocked to hear it! Sorry I took my sweet time to reply, I wanted to give the album a couple of listens before I would make an impression. Well, I think it's very energetic, it has this power to it, I can't do anything else while I listen to it, I think that's what makes a great album! I really love the Universe concept! I love (Interstellar)! It's an interlude, right? My favorite song is Fucked up serendipity! I'm definitely going to listen to it again soon! Thank you for sharing, you did beautiful work, so congratulations :)

    I'm excited to hear about the new record with your band! Oh, I keep forgetting you're a star, :P. How does it feel, being on stage? And do you often have lots of band practice? Aah, you are going to see La Dispute in 3 days... I danced alone on my balcony on Said the kind to the river last week, how sad for me, haha. Bump into someone at the concert for me if they play it, will you? hahaha

    I was so caught in it I had moments where I felt I was going blind myself just from how he described it. I also like Milan Kundera (especially The Book of Laughter and Forgetting, The Joke, The Unbearable Lightness of being), Anna Gavalda (Je voudrais que quelqu'un m'attende quelque part, Je l'aimais) Michael Cunningham (A Home at the End of the World, The Hours, Specimen Days, By nightfall) but some classics too like Flaubert and Dostoyevsky. I love absurdism, especially in theatre, authors like Samuel Beckett, Edward Albee, Harold Pinter and Tom Stoppard. Albert Camus is one of my favorite writers, too. Are you familiar with Raymond Queneau's Zazie dans le Métro? I remember reading it in high school and I was very confused, haha. I enjoyed exploring Dadaism and avant-garde in a variety of art forms. There are so many books and authors I love though, I could talk about it forever. It's almost as impossible as writing the list of my favorite songs or movies, haha.

    The Black Box by Amos Oz reflects Israel in a very interesting way, the whole book is practically letters the characters send to each other and that's the only way you know them and what's happening. Henry Miller wrote a lot about humans and life, a lot of autobiography (and he had a wild life) but most books are a tough read and filled with sexuality, like Tropic of Capricorn and Tropic of Cancer, Black spring or the Sexus trilogy, The Rosy Crucifixion. Andreï Makine writes in a very unique way with perspectives on Russia and France, in books like Le Testament français, La Femme qui attendait, or Le Crime d'Olga Arbelina. I recently read a very tough book called Blindness by José Saramago, it was so haunting. It's the story of an unexplained mass epidemic of blindness affecting nearly everyone and the social breakdown that comes with it. The way human nature captured in that book is frightening!

    My favorite writer is Jonathan Coe because he writes in a way that I would write if I could write like that. I like his way of describing moments and feelings and how vivid his characters are, his wit and his delicacy. The House of Sleep was my favorite book for a long time, in a way it still is. I remember after I read The rain before it falls from him, I was dying to listen to a song he kept mentioning: two of the characters heard that song on the radio in some moments and it created a very vivid world in my mind. I'm talking about Canteloube - "Bailero" - Sung by Netania Davrath in Occitan! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iI8tMHrD_c I think moments like that have an unspeakable beauty. I love getting lost inside the universe of a book like that and I love when that world is expressed in such a powerful way. I like reading about other cultures and how they think.

    My favorite TV show is Six Feet Under (I loved the perspectives each episode put on life, the depth and complexity the characters had, its originality and how I found myself in certain characters. I really liked how they showed no one is either good or bad, that we don't live in a black and white world and seeing how they dealt with how fucked up their lives were sometimes) and Stargate Universe. I like HBO shows, and there are a couple of shows in Romania produced by them that are really good, but mostly in Romania tv is crap, really really bad, kinda like the telenovelas but worse and way more pathetic, haha. I think most of the books I read put some kind of perspective on life and people and how they develop themselves. I love the writings of Virginia Woolf (Mrs Dalloway is my favorite) and she experimented a lot with stream of consciousness and the underlying psychological as well as emotional motives of characters in her work.

    Do you remember when your former president Sarkozy said Alsace? Well that happens with politicians in my country all the time. I watched all seasons of Scrubs some years ago! I really liked the bro-love relationship between Turk and J.D. and the sarcastic wit of dr. Cox! Oh, and how could I forget about dr. Ian Itor, hahaha! I liked that they had serious moments as well and put some things into perspective. Who was your favorite character? Did you watch Cougar Town, too? Are you a fan of Zach Braff? Because I remember you said Garden State was one of your favorite movies. My all-time favorite fun TV show is Friends, whenever I watch it feels like home to me. I have 90s nostalgia, haha. I also liked the first seasons of How I met your mother a lot. I like Castle too, but mostly because I have a mild obsession with Nathan Filion, haha.

    Here's a song that captures that spirit well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6jilw-6X_E the lyrics remind the Dacian sage: http://www.lyricsreg.com/lyrics/dordeduh/Dojana+english+translated/ That's a black metal band btw. Some historians say the first recorded writings are the Tărtăria tablets and come from a village from Transylvania, not Sumer. Anyway, we don't have much left from them, but I did go to an archeology camp some years ago and unearthed some broken pottery and artefacts belonging to my ancestors. You know, I think this country could have been so much better in so many ways if only we'd had better leaders. A lot of valuable people left the country to go to France because they couldn't do anything here, like Constantin Brâncuși, one of the world's greatest sculptors (he actually WALKED to Paris from his village) Eugène Ionesco, Emil Cioran, Matei Vișniec (my favorite playwright).

    Ah, I wish I was a cat secretly living in Paris. I'd probably sneak into Ladurée and overdose on free macarons, hahaha. It's strange that you mention cats and Paris, just last week I was babysitting my friends' cat while they were on vacation... in Paris. I told them to go steal my favorite sculpture and bring it back, my apartment could use some redecorating, haha. So what would the essence of Paris be in your eyes? My ancestors, the Dacians, were a fierce and headstrong bunch of people who died with a smile on their faces on the battlefield knowing they were going to the God Zalmoxis. They were eventually conquered in the end by the Romans, after more than 20 years of war. They destroyed everything, they burned down the temples and started a long process of assimilation of the local population. And so, now we are both, Roman and Dacian. But we are very proud of our Dacian roots and we say the Dacian spirit lives strongly in all of us.

    Oh, the new Tool album. I... want to believe, haha. Maybe in 10,000 days? Everyone is joking about how it will never come to light (people get very, very creative with those jokes haha), and I sometimes think Maynard won't ever get off his ass and make something with Tool again, that he somewhat retired to his winery for good. But who knows. Hope dies last, right? I am actually super excited about the Deftones new album in the fall, I'm very curious about the direction they will take, their latest album is my least favorite from them. I am mostly floating on through music these days. What about you? Expecting something good?

    Actually, our discussion about Dredg and El Cielo somehow makes me think of one of my favorite books, it's called Sleep! by Annelies Verbeke, maybe you can find it. I was always fascinated by sleep and dreams and everything related to it. I can understand this book so well. I think it's very beautifully written, too and it captivates you. Speaking of Dredg, I know this is a strange question, but did you ever experience sleep paralysis? I've had some experiences like that in my life and each time it was really horrible. I remember reading or watching a documentary about it I think and people's reactions usually were something along the lines of "I am dead or dying" "There's an intruder in my house" or "I'm being abducted by aliens". I think my first reaction was "I know I am here, but I don't exist anymore". I felt like I was not breathing and not needing to breathe, having no control over my body. What made it stranger was that it happened when I wasn't sleeping home, either.

    There's something so beautiful and lonely about a big city, isn't it? I take my time in the subway to read or listen to music, I just zone out of the crowd. What TV shows do you watch? Do you have any favorites? I love TV shows! I find pop music super annoying, but I'm sure your rendition of Fireworks is lovely, haha. Murakami is not one of my favorites, but he is brilliant. I guess I don't really like how his male protagonists are so apathetic always, it's a little frustrating. I think it's supposed to contrast with the other characters, who are very much alive. You know, it makes me think of Killswitch Engage's Alive or Just Breathing. Are we alive or just breathing? Sometimes I feel like most of our lives are lived on autopilot and we actually have to go to great lengths to be alive. Went a little off topic there, haha. Books I'd recommend... I wouldn't know where to start. Tell me some of your favorite books and I'll surely think of some titles suited to your taste.

    During the Middle Ages we stopped the ottoman invasion. Although there is so much more to Transylvania than that. We pride ourselves on our long and complicated history and Dacian roots. I can tell you more about my ancestors, the Dacians, if you want. And I can recommend some music that captures that spirit very well, too. But all in all, we are a country of Great Losers, guys who lost with grace, forcing history to keep their name instead of the ones who triumphed. Something like William Wallace, but way better if you ask me. Some examples would be Decebal, Horea and Avram Iancu. Anyway, the area is really unique and holds so much in terms of scenery, history, traditions... I wouldn't even know where to begin. We have lots of folklore and myths but nothing related to vampires. Much rather the Transylvanian beliefs are pretty practical, the gods are personalisations of the natural elements, quite the opposite to the vampire myth, which to me is not supernatural, but VERY unnatural.

    I apologize for my excessive delay in replying, I'm in the middle of my exam session at the university and I wanted to take the time to properly write back to you. I think maybe they call it escargot so it sounds less gross and more like haute cuisine haha. Ah yes, Dracula. Bram Stoker, if you ever read this from the ethereal world, fuck you. I think that's what everyone thinks about when they hear about Transylvania and people are pretty pissed about it because he wasn't even Romanian. There's some truth in that, Vlad the Impaler was so cruel and he got some kind of reputation, I was actually talking to someone about this here on lastfm last month. Judging by the historical data, Vlad's cruelty was rather a battle strategy than a sadistical inclination, but I have to admit he didn't mind to do horrible things. He was one of our leaders (voievod) who fought against the ottomans, but not by far one of the greatest ones (for example, Ștefan cel Mare, who fought for 47 years).

    The poetry I love is usually just beautiful-sounding or expresses an intense emotion, it strikes you, no deeper meaning needed. Here's something beautiful from Neruda: http://silencedesreves.tumblr.com/post/118191170492/i-will-bring-you-flowers-from-the-mountains and from e.e. cummings: http://silencedesreves.tumblr.com/post/118213867462/here-is-the-deepest-secret-nobody-knows-here-is I do read a lot, I actually read 6-7 books at once because I get bored so easily. I am currently reading two books for my profession, a world history book, Black Box by Israeli writer Amos Oz and Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut. I just finished reading Sputnik Sweetheart by Haruki Murakami and On the Road by Jack Kerouac. I know what you mean about new music, I always want to retreat to my comfort music zone, the great thing about music is that it always has repeat value. Did you listen to the new Faith No More album? I am listening to your recommendations these days and I'll let you know what I think!
