  1. Dream my friend dream. Copenhagen is in Denmark. Are you sure Batman isn’t also your fav hero? I have to admit, I have no fav poet, in fact no poets at all.


  2. I chose copenhagen because there are a lot of cute girls on bicycles. haha.


  3. Okay, I would rather live in Denmark or Iceland. I take my answer back.


  4. Gorecki, that’s cool. I haven’t met many people who listen to him, but that’s good stuff.


  5. I got it from the “essential listening” thread a while back on hxc. I have been really really into it.
