May 18, 2005
I wouldn't do this on my main website (yes, I am unfaithful), but seeing as the baton has been passed, I shall accept dutifully.
Total volume of music files on my computer
1400 songs (exactly), 6.12GB. That's four days' worth of continuous music.
The last CD I bought was
I don't buy CDs. I am singlehandedly trying to disprove them.
Song playing right now
Fever Dream – Iron and Wine.
Five songs I listen to a lot, or that mean a lot to me
Girls of Wild Strawberries – Guided by Voices. Music for spinning crazily around in the arms of a significant other, kissing madly.
Thinking About You – Radiohead.
Time of Your Life – Greenday.
Wish you were Here – Pink Floyd
Dreaming of You – The Coral. A recent addition, but it makes the pavement disappear beneath my feet.
The five people I'm passing the baton onto
Five people who have done it.
And while I'm here, I might as well:
Last film I saw at the cinema
Hitchhiker's Guide. A snore fest interspersed with occasional commendable moments. The dolphin song was indeed hideous.
Last film I watched on DVD/Computer/TV etc.
Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Homophobes and those uncomfortable with unconventional sexuality should steer clear of this one, but highly recommended otherwise.
Films I am most looking forward to seeing
Johnny Depp, Tim Burton and Roald Dahl, rolled into one. Enough said, really.
Total Number of films I own
I come from Malaysia. We practically run the world's DVD piracy industry.
Five films that mean something to me
Amelie – There is a great deal of me in her, or vice versa.
Big Fish – Visual, fairytale magic. And of course, who I watched it with.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind – Epitomizes everything I've thought of love, and hoped of it.
Adaptation – Inspired my inner writer, who hovers uncertainly just under the surface.
In A Lonely Place – Jolted me into a far deeper understanding of my significant other than I would ever have achieved on my own, at a critical juncture in our relationship. That's all you'll get from me.
