2. Stretch your left arm as far as you can. What do you touch first?
A Casio CZ1000 synthesizer.
3. What is the last thing you watched on TV?
Picket Fences, The Bus stops here
6. With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?
Paul Gross, "Ride forever", from the "Due South" soundtrack. This is from classic episode "All the Queen's Horses": When a group of terrorists take over a train carrying the R.C.M.P.'s Musical Ride, and gas knocks the mounties out one by one, the chorus gets thinner each time around. And hence as the song ends, the plot unfolds...
7. When last did you step outside? What were you doing?
Last night, returning from a party.
8. Before you came to this website, what did you look at? Garv's AK04 bash.
9. What are you wearing?
The shirt I slept in.
10. Did you dream last night?
As so often of late, I dreamt utter shite. This time however, I decided to go back to sleep, and dreamt something nice when I did. Be warned though that this doesn't always work: I managed to have three bad dreams in a row a few weeks back...
12. What is on the walls of the room you are in?
Drawings by yours truly, photographs taken by others.
13. Seen anything weird lately?
Watched Donnie Darko. Really disappointing movie. Doesn't get going until the movie's almost over, and the "hero" is a total asshat. And then they have to put up a website explaining the premise because for all the time it wasted on inconsequential shite, the movie never did. Bah.
15. What is the last film you saw?
In the cinema? I honestly can't tell, possibly Star Trek: Nemesis, which of course was utter shite. ("I was violated, can I have the day off?""No, they might do it again, which could prove to be interesting."). The last decent movie I saw on the big screen was Girl, Interrupted. On the telly, last movie was Krull (sucked), last decent one was Mortelle Randonnée (DVD, gift from Isotopp).
16. If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy first?
A studio in That Beautiful City, likely.
18. If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?
Given that we're still running around with cavepeoples' urges, removing the whole competition and aggression hardwiring from our brains might be worth a shot. Sure, that whole innovation thing might slow down, but maybe that way, social progress will catch up with technological progress at long long last?
20. George Bush: is he a power-crazy nutcase or some one who is finally doing something that has needed to be done for years?
Well, you gotta admire the novelty strategy -- instead of having the decency to do things stealthily behind our respective backs, they do The Unspeakable right under our respective noses. The trick lies in the choice of victims: "Oh, of course it's wrong, but... tee-hee, it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy, right? We'll deal with the Bushmen eventually -- when they start targeting people we actually like."
21. Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her?
I have this here list lying in front of me. I made it about five years ago. I hate all but two of them now. They're both French, and they're not Isabelle, Janine or Monique. And that's as far as I'll go.
22. Imagine your first child is a boy, what do you call him?
That's not in the plan, you see.
23. Would you ever consider living abroad?
Well, I answered all these bollocky questions, now where are my results?
