My hobbies: writing and recording music, being possessed by the sea (so I freedive and go scuba), underwater and macro photography, raster graphics, HTML webmastering, travelling in woody mountains. I'm also found of Mediterranean (and other) sealife and insect diversity.
I have two Testudo Horsfildae as pets, and one more Trachemys scripta in common with my wife.
In my freetime I usually sleep, read and do my hobbies. In music I've started with metal music, except for primitives, through I'm getting bored with any agression sometimes. Recently I have explored Folk, Ethno and New-Age (Oliver Shanti and Friends, Gandalf, Mike Oldfield, etc.), revealed Ambient, Berlin School of Electronica, Space, Psychedelic and Post-Rock. All these have enourmously huge influence on me and open brand new horizons. 3 most favourite metal bands as legacy of youth: Lake of Tears, Type O Negative, Running Wild. Nowadays I adore Ozric Tentacles and atmospheric post-rock acts (like God is an Astronaut), ambient and things like that, though not recanting the metal heritage and other wonderful sounds.
My favourite food: Chineese, Greek, seafood unlimitedly, my mother' and my Princess' cooking, tomatoes. Favourite drinks are strong black tea (in Russian way), tomato and lychee juice, retsina.
Favourite places to be: my house, my bed, Greece, Moscow, on the road, under water.
