Have one of them doing-the-rounds things instead.
Name a CD you own that no-one else on your friends list does:
Sadly this is much, much too easy for me. One at random from the pile of CDs by the computer: The Newcranes – “Frontline”. Early nineties crustypop from a Derby pub band. I suspect that if anyone on my friends list owns a copy it’d be yaruar (as the only person I know who actaully recognised the name “Tansads” when it came up in email conversation a few years ago), but I’m willing to bet he doesn’t.
“This love was made in heaven, this love was made from lust,
And now it’s in the trash can with the other dirt and dust.
This love was made in heaven, this love was so divine,
But now instead of sweet white wine it tastes of turpentine.”
Clearly, unsung lyrical masters.
Name a book you own that no-one else on your friends list does:
A little harder, by not much. “Stagolee shot Billy” by Cecil Brown. Best text I’ve been able to find on the “Stack” Lee/Billy Lyons legends and the various blues, folk and pop songs that have grown out of it. Bought it when I was intending to take a shot at writing a graphic novel about it. I might yet go back to it – it’s one of the few writing projects I’ve got left in the back of my head that doesn’t just piss me off. (I also note that I’ve still got a book on the way the “Little Red Riding Hood” fairy tale has changed over the years that burge lent me a couple of years ago (and I really ought to return) sitting next to it.
Name a movie you own on DVD/VHS/whatever that no-one else on your friends list does:
The Prophecy III. I figure there’s a reasonable chance someone out there owns the first one, but I’m willing to bet I’m the only one with the two sequels.
Name a place that you have visited that no-one else on your friends list has:
The Bushmills distillery.
