Pith and Circumstance

Sorry. I noticed the questionaire a few entries back and had to jump in...
Look, I'm at work and I got nothing to do but answer questionaires for my bud-dies so just deal with it.
p.s. I just looked up pithy and I'm still a little rattled by the "depth" of said activity. Like GROSS!!!

Total number of books I've owned: I once owned many, many books. Hmm, I used to have like 100 or something but after elementary school, I got hip.

The last book I bought: A shitty George Harrison biography. I'm a fucktard, it was garbage and it cost over $25.

The last book I read: "Four Plays"- Gunter Grass. I laughed a bunch but I have no idea why. It beats the hold hell out of the bullshit Chuck Palahniuk dogass i've been trying to read today. D.O.R.K.

Five books that mean a lot to me (in no particular order): Chronicles vol. one-Zimmerman, The Stranger- Camus, Necronomicon, Choosing Death, Bridge To Terribithia. I'm sure there are more important ones but I'm a fucktard (see above).

Total number of films I own on DVD and video: Zero!

Last film I bought: Never have doled out any cash for a flick. I've only rented or borrowed, scout's honor. Well, the girlfriend bought me "Napoleon Dynamite" for Christmas butI sold it to buy some lunch a month ago.

Last film I watched: That new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory flick. Hmm, not totally bummed but it wasn't nearly as creepy as the orginal. I also watched some crazy underground world music vids last week that consisted of a dude drinking blood from a decapitated goat head. I'm gonna buy that one cause it was REAL.

Five films that I watch a lot or that mean a lot to me (in no particular order): I don't watch movies over and over cause that is a waste of time but looking back through the past few years I remembered enjoying (in no order): In The Bedroom, The Shining, Muppets Take Manhattan, some Herzog flicks (too stoned at the time to take note of what they were called), Texas Chainsaw One, any obscure porn made before 1990, skate vids pre mid-nineties. O, I went over, sorry...

Total volume of music on my computer: How long is my dong? What? O, Around 100 albums worth. Stupid...

Last CD I bought: It was a record but Christian Death's first jammer...siiick!!! Looks all goth but you put it on and it's total skate punk madness. Circa 1982, get it together folks and go buy it!

Song currently playing: Arbouretum-"Don't let It Show". Now I have no idea what it was written about but I take it as a heartbreak tune. It is a killer and always brings a tear to my eye. What? You wanna argue that?!?!

Five songs I listen to a lot or that mean a lot to me: There are a lot so this is hard but i'm grabbing what comes up first- Devo-"Gut feeling". Opening chords are INTENSE! Bad Brains- "Sail On". Total grossness. It doesn't get sicker than that. Sonic Youth-"Schizophrenia". No comment. Black Flag-"Depression". It saved my life. Grateful Dead-"High Time". Beautiful.
