Profile

Biography

Clint is a Dutch person who self-identifies as a citizen of nowhere, rather than a citizen of the world (which he feels is still too constrained by the borders of our language). He enjoys Mannerist paintings, the company of cats and vegan cooking. Besides this, Clint likes to talk about films, especially those starring Nicholas Cage, New Wave music and Bauhaus (the movement, not the band, he does _not_ like the band). Other turn-offs include lukewarm coffee, identitarian politics and the comedy of Will Ferrell.
