I'm IT!

I was tagged by Devious Diva. It's my first tag and although I'm quite hesitant about blog memes, Diva is too nice to refuse.

Black and White or Colour; how do you prefer your movies?

Imagine watching Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in black and white. Wouldn't the chocolate river be mistaken for something yucky? How would we see Robin Williams stumbling through his wife's painting in "What Dreams May Come". And wouldn't Speilberg's "The Colour Purple" have stumped the audience if it was filmed in black and white?

What is the one single subject that bores you to near-death?

Sports game arguments, particularly SOCCER.
Watching under active, sofa loving fans rant on about overpaid, conceited sport players' moves and techniques makes me want to put a fork in my eye. Just play ball!

MP3s, CDs, Tapes or Records: what is your favorite medium for prerecorded music?

Nothing beats the frustration of a record needle jumping at your favourite part and the ssssssssssssssssssssssss noise it makes when it meets the tiniest particle of dust.

You are handed one first class trip plane ticket to anywhere in the world and ten million dollars cash. All of this is yours provided that you leave and not tell anyone where you are going ? Ever. This includes family, friends, everyone. Would you take the money and ticket and run?

Nope. Maybe. Depends.
Who comes UP with these questions? Oh, the dilemmas.
Is Robert Redford part of this "proposal", because this sheds a whole new light on things.

Seriously, what do you consider the world's most pressing issue now?

ANY form of bloodshed
[insert random place on Earth here: Iraq, Mid-East, etc.]

How would you rectify the world's most pressing issue?

By VANISHING Man's most irrational invention: WEAPONS
All forms of weaponry (and don't give me any "for defence reasons" or "the right to bear arms" bullsh*t). Weapons give birth to weapons. End of story. Away with all of them.

You are given the chance to go back and change one thing in your life; what would that be?

La Guardia Airport, not missing the flight.

You are given the chance to go back and change one event in world history, what would that be?

The slaughter of American Indians.

A night at the opera or a night at the Grand Ole' Opry? Which do you choose?

Best of both worlds: Banjo playing tenor in an open air concert.

What is the one great unsolved crime of all time you'd like to solve?

The assassination of JFK. (I never bought the Oswald theory).

One famous author can come to dinner with you. Who would that be, and what would you serve for the meal?

Isabel Allende
Stuffed calamari, mousaka, Greek salad with lots of olives, feta cheese, hummus, and plenty of iced ouzo.

You discover that John Lennon was right, that there is no hell below us, and above us there is only sky. What's the first immoral thing you might do to celebrate this fact?

I have to be ethical only if eternal damnation is hanging over my head as a threat?
Our heavens and our hells are the choices we make, the lives we lead, the societies we build, the planet we use. I would celebrate if we decided to turn all our hells into heavens [again, insert random hotspot on planet].

All done. My turn to tag.
