Lifted from jlundberg:

1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."

2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.

3. You will update your livejournal/website with the answers to the questions and leave the answers as comments here (or at least provide a pointer to your site).

4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.

5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

(Please Note, I don't actually care if you do question 5. But come down and volunteer. It feels like fun. I have many questions I would like to ask people. I will pretend to be a dying newspaper man with nothing to live for. It'll be those kinds of questions... what kind of questions would he ask, even?

Edit: If you don't have a livejournal and you want to be asked the questions anyway, feel free. Yeah, you know how you are.

Also, here's another meme from somewhere in my friendslist (I saw it a couple of times).

In Farenheit 451, volunteers memorise entire books, to preserve the text from burning: what text would you learn and save?

The Undertaking by Thomas Lynch.

(I've been thinking about Lynch lately. I wish he'd write another book of essays. Two is not enough. I think it might be time to buy his poetry books.)

Have you ever had a crush on a character in a book?

When I was young... we won't speak of it.

The last book you bought is:

Haruki Murakami's Kafka on the Shore.

The last book you finished is:

Lucius Shepard's A Handbook of American Prayer.

What are you currently reading:

Fritz Leiber's Horrible Imaginings, Adam Roberts' Swiftly, Liz Williams' The Banquet of the Lords of Night, and Dante's The Divine Comedy.

(There are a bunch of other collections I haven't finished, but those three are the ones I actively pick up in a spare half hour at the moment. There's no telling if it'll to them next week.)

Five desert island books:

How to Build Your Own Boat by whoever.
How to Prepare Deserted Island Food by whoever.
Building Your Robinson Crusoe Hunt by whoever.
Turning Natives into Slaves, by whoever.
And lastly, Learn how Astral Travel and Call For Help by whoever.

1) Your work. Give us a rundown on what attracts you to something as an actor, writer, and such?

2) A realistic portrayal of you in before thirty?

3) That moment when everything changed and you started moving forward to your goals?

4) You're dead. Horrible accident involving nerds taking out other nerds in real life after Wow got shut down. But that's not important. You go to Heaven (assuming it's a place, blah blah) and you see God. You say?

5) Favourite Swear Word?

1) Anything with an interesting/fucked-up aesthetic, though it always changes. Not a week goes by, not a week, when i don't look back at something i "swore by" a while back and shake my head at how naieve and pretentious i sounded. That whole 'aesthetic' comment? Probably gonna sound REAL credible in 6 months. But generally if something is conceptually laden i'm all for it.

2) Film lecturer at a university somewhere. Probably have published a few papers, and made a few films or held installation works with (hopefully) success. Guest lecturer at the MCA on something-or-other! Spoling impressionable students with my sparkling, guttural wit and blazing sexuality! Etc.

3) Theres no 'moment' with me, its more a series of smaller moments, a shudder, creaking, and the whole thing starts to lumber forwards slowly but surely. But right now it would be SO easy to stop pushing.

4) I'd ask him for his top five albums of all time, with favourite tracks and explanations why. I'd probably also ask him something appropriately profound. Though right now, in boxer shorts on a Friday afternoon drinking strawberry milk from the bottle, profound has little meaning.

5) A tie between:
