Five Things

The Five Things Meme:

Name a CD or CDs you own that you think no one else on your friends list does.
Deborah (aka Debbie) Gibson- Greatest Hits (including fantastic dance remixes)
NKOTB- Greatest Hits
Wade Hayes- a country singer from OK who was pretty successful in the mid-1990's

Name a book you own that you think no one else on your friends list does.
Bitch Factor by Chris Rogers. It's the first book of a mystery series about a female bounty hunter. Following titles were Chill Factor and Rage Factor. Then it just kind of....stopped. I wonder what happened to the rest of the series? Must go google now.

Name a movie you own on DVD/VHS/whatever that you think no one else on your friends list does.
The Buttercream Gang- it's an old family friendly movie made by some Christian group, I believe. My childhood friend Staci and I used to watch it all the time, so when I found it at a local booksale, I had to get it. At the same sale, I also picked up Tales of the Shirtale Gang. Anyone else remember those cute creatures??

Name a place that you have visited that you think no one else on your friends list has.
River of Love Cabins in southern Oklahoma... that's where we went for our honeymoon and I HIGHLY doubt anyone on blogger has been there.

Name a piece of technology or any sort of tool you own that you think no one else on your friends list has.
Seriously... do you really think that I own some kind of fancy tool? My husband is another matter entirely, but I own one sole miniature sized hammer, perfect for my needs. And no need to answer the first half of the question either... it makes me giggle:)

1. The Use of Ashes by '60s-'70s folk rock group Pearls Before Swine. A beautifully poetic and thought-provoking psychedelic-era classic not many know about, but musicians like Elton John used as a derivative source.
2. "Running on Empty" by Peter G. Peterson, a highly detailed accounting of how both poltical parties have failed us and what can be done about it.
3. Zardoz- a scifi drama starring Sean Connery and Charlotte Rampling. A story set in the future where humankind has achieved immortality. However, its resultant predictability and forced conformism has created 4 social classes: those who accept things as they are; the Brutals- those who live outside of this seemingly perfect socirty and CAN die; the Apathetics, those who are bored stiff with the perfect and unchanging society and who walk around in a daze, not talking and seemingly zombie-like; and the Renegades-those who hate the established order and want to see it destroyed. These people are aged a bit for every dischordant pronouncement or action they make and a number of them have become extremely frail and demented as a result. Connery, a Brutal, infiltrates the perfect society to destroy it as it is a crime against nature and brings them "the gift of death." VERY thought-provoking on a number of levels!
4. Havana, Cuba-fascinatingly artistic, and not completely like our media accounts portray it.
5. A noise-gate. A piece of electronic equipment only recording studios have.

I probably own the Wade Hayes disc, I'm sure I have the Debbie Gibson & the NKOTB but they're on cassette! LOL

Shirt T-t-t-tales!

Did you call your husband a tool?

Jack: I can honestly say I've never heard of Zardoz, but I think I may need to look and see if it's available on Netflix. Thanks for sharing your top five-- I'm glad you stumbled across my lil' page.

ToddKill: (SideNote: Your shortened name disturbs me.. it sounds so violent!) Shirt Tales rock! Just let me know if you'd like to borrow the VHS!
