I will be in NYC this weekend which should produce one post anyway. Until then...
Name a book that you want to share so much that you keep giving away copies:
When it comes to books it is always hard for me narrow it down to one. There are SOOO many important and just plain entertaining books. I think every American should read Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee. One of my all time favorite books is The God of Small Things. The first time I read it I finished it and immediately turned to the first page and started it again. Just beautiful.
Name a piece of music that changed the way you listen to music:
Changed the way I listen to music? Hmmm. Depending on my mood and the music, I listen to it all differently. And I have always been exposed to all kinds of music... Sometimes it's about the emotion of the piece and sometimes the lyrics and sometimes the rhythm. Obviously I am struggling with this one. I don't have a piece that changed the way I listen to music. Sorry.
Name a film you can watch again and again without fatigue:
Monsoon Wedding. Out of Africa. Heartburn. Blue Sky. The Right Stuff. Alamo Bay And I do like watching Sissy Spacek in Coal Miners Daughter. If I think about it I could go on and on.
Name a performer for whom you suspend all disbelief:
Jessica Lange, Meryl Streep, Ed Harris, Helen Mirren, Jeremy Irons, Anthony Hopkins.
Name a work of art you'd like to live with:
The Kiss by Gustav Klimt. Klimt is one of my favorites. I love Art Nouveau. I love the way this painting is so mosaic. And I love the feel of this. The way she is enveloped by him. And held.
Name a work of fiction which has penetrated your real life:
Every book I read penetrates my real life. I honestly think thats why I have such a love of books. I could write a list of books and how they effected me or what they gave me but it would be too long.
Name a punch line that always makes you laugh:
I am one of those people that can't tell a joke or remember one. I do laugh everytime my children imitate Napoleon Dynamite.
Now, I don't normally tag people but I am going to and just don't do it if you don't want to.
Spadoman, Mark, (I'd like to see what TUA would say but I know he won't do it), Alice and Beth (put it in the comments Beth) . Actually I am interested in what all my blogger friends would answer so feel free!
See you after NYC!
