A MEME!

Everyone’s favorite Trash Addict, Mr. Lubin, passed along a meme for me to complete! Please visit Lubin’s site — find the link to the right and below. For some reason I am having trouble with Blogger tonight and can’t provide a link in my post. Grrrrrrrrr.

You’re stuck inside Fahrenheit 451, which book do you want to be?

My first choice would be VALLEY OF THE DOLLS by Jackie S, but that option was already taken. So, I will go with my second choice which would be Lewis C’s THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS — I would enjoy all those nooks and crannies that Alice failed to fully explore. Talk about a head trip!

Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?

Yes. Stanley Kowalski from T. Williams’ A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE. Just a fantasy/porn-like crush, tho. That character is just so down and dirty. Would not want to hang with him at all in reality, but in fantasy it might be a bit of rough trade fun!

The last book you bought is:

Don’t make fun of me, but I just bought MY LIFE SO FAR by Jane Fonda. Look, I wanna know about those wacky antics in Hanoi like everyone else! Plus, my hope is that she will discuss wardrobe fittings for BARBARELLA and provide more details regarding the poorly done boob job of 1988. I mean, the woman had money. How did she end up with such bad ones?

The last book you read is:

I usually read 3 to 5 books at a time. However, things have been a bit hectic. So, the last two books I read were PIECE BY PIECE by Tori Amos (I love her because she is both wildly talented and original — and I also think she might be just a little insane) and HAROLD’S END by JT LeRoy (which I now consider one of my fave books!) —- am still working my way through A CRACK UP AT THE RACE RIOTS by Harmony Korine (I’ve not fully formed an opinion at this point, but color me confused for now) and JUNG ON ACTIVE IMAGINATION (no comment)

What are you currently reading?

See above and add Jane Fonda’s new book. I also just picked up HERZOG by Saul Bellow yesterday. Haven’t started it yet, though. Karl just told me that Mr. Bellow recently died. I didn’t know what with all this Pope business.

Five books you would take to a deserted island:

THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS/ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND (I can read it over and over and over)

VALLEY OF THE DOLLS (never has bad taste been so glam and wonderous!)

THE ANARCHY OF THE IMAGINATION (Fassbinder was a genius!)

CONFESSIONS OF A PRETTY LADY (Sandra Bernhard’s first book and it saved Madonna’s life — it says so on the dust jacket!)

THE BARBRA STREISAND SCRAPBOOK (the boy can’t help it!)

…I would also try to sneak Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s THE LITTLE PRINCE on to the island as well while no one was looking. I find this book to be so beautiful and inspiring. It is full of love and wisdom.

Who are you going to pass this stick to (3 persons) and why?

Too bad I can only pick 3, in fact, I think I am going to have to go with 5 — but links to each person’s site are below and to the left!

Karyn — Vexed In the City because she has exceptional taste and always expresses it so beautifully!

Underling — Very well-read and always insighful

Adrock2xander — Not sure if he will actually do it, but this Outrageous, Beautiful Misfit is one of my new fave bloggers and I am curious to see how he would answer!

Sexy Thomas of KUNG FU KITTEN fame — Thomas, share with us!

Tim at Non Stop to Tokyo because he rocks

…I would also pick my pals Jon and Karl — but they have already done this!

    Nothing wrong at all with Jane Fonda’s autobiography – my very worthy left-wing newspaper The Guardian has been printing bits of it lately – so if it’s good enough for them…

    Lubin, thank you! I was teased when I purchased it! LOL! ..but it looks quite interesting.

    adrock2xander — You don’t have to, but it would be interesting to see how you would answer! And, sure I can take the hits — my site is so dull — they will only hit once anyway! LOL!

    Holy flattery, Mattman. It’ll get you everywhere, with me anyway. Ok, so now what do I do? Do I post the answers on this blog in the comment section or do I post them on MY blog? I am so techno-deficient it is pathetic. I guess I’ll put it on my blog because nobody will want to read it in the comment section here, since they come here to read YOUR stuff. Tell me if I got it wrong….xxoo

  5. Underling replied:

    Okay…I’ll post mine tonight…

    But I’m not sure I understand question 1.
