    Some cultures really intrigue me and I wish to experience them firsthand. For example, ever since I saw the anime "Nana" I've been fascinated by punk rock culture. The music, the clothes, the style, the piercing, etc. all appeal to a certain side of me. I imagine that if I were to meet my shadow self, that he would be a punk rocker.

    One of my closest friends is Goth. He showed me "Repoman the Genetic Opera" which I found very entertaining.

    Furthermore, just his attitude, demeanor, and outlook on life really intrigue me. His clothes and make up are a bit dreary, but still very interesting. I would love to dress up goth one day just to walk around town and see how people would react differently.

    What various culture intrigue you?

    None, I prefer individual, original thought.

    theater all the wine, cheese and plays entertain a interesting crowd. (And I don't look out of place with monocle, top hat, or fedora.)

    I never understood the logic behind the monocle. It looks cool, but imagine how it messes with your depth perception.

    your description of the theater world confused me, then I realized we're thinking of different sides of the curtain.

    Its more fun on the side with all the make up, people in nothing more than their underwear running around frantically, loss of all ideas of personal space, acting and singing and general tom foolery.

    I really want to visit the Harajuku region in Tokyo and figure out what's going on in their heads when they get dressed in the morning! I'm guessing it's utter awesome-ness. I also want to know more about the culture in Bangledesh, particularly centered around their Muslim religion. One of my best friend's is from Bangledesh and she has made me very interested in learning more about her cultural background.

    Most of all, I wish to see really well working interspecies languages, so that we could learn from what animals would tell us, about how reality feels through their cognition.

    I'm also interested in the culture of "non-living" physical phenomena, such as music of the planets, and others, but this post is already too long, so just one example:

    Currently I am more interested in ancient cultures and myth than in current culture...says something doesn't it...If I could just time travel it would be great...

    My current fixations are Ancient Celt Culture, myth and tradition.

    And Ancient Greek myth, culture and tradition.

    I am also WILDLY fascinated by the inca's and the myans, and any other lost people. Where did they all go!?

    Good question. I think the Classical Hollywood culture is interesting.

    As far as countries go, Irish, Australian, or Canadian and definitely English (UK).
