Real Name: Joris

Age: 18 (19 in a month)

Location: Antwerp, Belgium

person you love the most in the world, ever: alice

Favourite Bands: sonic youth, sufjan stevens, circle takes the square, john frusciante, yeah yeah yeahs, white stripes, mirah, architecture in helsinki, tom waits, kate nash white circle crime club, ...

band we should listen to is:
White Circle Crime Club. A band from my town. They're becoming pretty famous, have been on tour with the blood brothers and tv on the radio. if you like sonic youth or fugazi, make sure to check them out. I love them. www.myspace.com/whitecirclecrimeclub

Most Inspirational Writer (Lyrically): Tom Waits. It's like Beat Generation writing put to music, how much better does it get?

Favourite poet/poem (published writer): Jack Kerouac is my hero.

If you could be any writer ever, who would you be: Kerouac

Why Do You Write: I can't let things go. When I do something fun, I keep thinking about it; when I meet someone special, I keep thinking about that person,... Let's dive into clichés. Before I started writing, I often had a feeling that my head was filled with useless little details. It felt like there was no space left in my head for more important stuff. So one day, I took up a pen and started writing down what was in my head. I felt relieved afterwards, so I kept doing it and now it's a habit.
Anything special you do while you write: I never listen to music while writing.

Favourite technique/style: I like to keep thing simple. I've had my 'big words' period but I never really liked the poems that I wrote then, so I gave up on that and wrote more simplistic stuff.

Favourite Writer on UG: I don't feel like putting a name here. Let's say I enjoy most stuff by the regulars.

Most Helpful Critter (thus known as critic):
Kyrl.

Your Most Recent Work and Reason behind It: What a horror show. It's probably my most personal piece in months. I've been having a **** time at university lately, and this piece is about the way people act at uni, about the whole elitist 'I'm better than you' attitude.

Tips for Newer Writers: Don't give up. Keep trying and you'll mature as a writer. Also, don't be put off by people at UG who rip your stuff to shreds.

Any Final Comments or Thoughts: I hadn't really expected this. I've been here for such a long time and I've never even been nominated, and now I return here and I win So yeah, thanks to whoever voted for me, this stupid internet thing means something to me

recent example:


what a horror show.


"I'd love to meet someone intelligent."
"I know."
"The literary canon is biased for everyone."
"I know."

Alison was sitting all alone on the university stairs
trying to rearrange her thoughts about contemporary
art.

"Despair and existentialism, shown in postmodernism?"
"I'd love to meet someone intelligent."

But Alison never talks.
Filth, pure filth... That's what you are.

Cabby!

Well done.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

The only reason I read these is to see my name in the favotire writers section. I am not in here, thus I do not support this writer of the month.

But congrats non-the-less, you did quite a good job and I really did enjoy your pieces this month.
