About barbaricbob...

Hello, my name’s Olivier. I’m a 29 years old introvert now residing in the vibrant city of Montreal. I graduated five years ago with a major in translation and a minor in East Asian Studies… not that I’m doing anything worthwhile with my degree since I work in a totally different field!

I’m the kind of bearded beast who loves cold temperatures (below 0 °C is fine, but -20 °C is ideal) and doesn’t wear any kind of coat during the winter season (shorts and t-shirt all day every day!)

I love music, I can honestly say that I listen to pretty much anything. My vinyl records collection is quite impressive, and I especially enjoy listening to music from the 70’s such as Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, and Led Zeppelin.

As far as movies and TV go, The Godfather is my all-time favorite. I also love movies like LOTR, The Matrix, Donnie Darko, followed by pretty much anything signed Tarantino. I watch series from the DC and Marvel Universes, Star Trek, and pretty much anything dark, clever, and/or supernaturally inclined like Preacher, Black Mirror, Dexter, Sherlock, Hannibal, Lucifer, and the likes. I also try to find time for the occasional Japanese anime binge-watching session… Literature is also used to be my forte, but I’ve struggled finding time to read in the last few years, which is a shame, I know.

On another note, I love food… probably too much for my own good! I never miss an opportunity to try something new or from another culture. (Sushi for the win!) I also enjoy beer tasting, and with all the microbreweries we have in Québec, it’s always possible to find something you’re going to thoroughly enjoy! I'm even flirting with the idea of brewing my own little batch of IPA! (Hipster much?) I do love my spirits as well, especially a peated, smoky, and sherry-forward scotch whisky. (Wine’s also pretty good… and gin… and cognac… and…) ;)

Finally, I love languages. I’m proud to say that I've learned other languages and I still enjoy learning some bits here and there; which is why I’d like you to write me a little something in your own language! No need to write an English equivalent, unless you think it’s necessary (for example: I’m unfamiliar with completely different ways of writing like the Korean or Arabic alphabets.) Deciphering is part of the fun, though! Surprise me, teach me something, insult me, even!

As far as the actual postcard goes, pretty much anything will do. However, something funny, weird, or even the most beautiful of sceneries is always appreciated! (For eventual friends from Japan, if you ever came across a Kimi no na wa.,Naruto, Pokémon, Death Note, or Dragon Ball postcard, you would make a man absolutely ecstatic (or from YOUR favorite anime, maybe?) For eventual friends from Scotland, scotch-related postcards would equally thrill me.)

Thanks for reading through this wall of useless, albeit mildly entertaining info!
