1)Which friend of yours is the most wrong-headed when it comes to Americans/the Americas?

Hmm…tricky one to kick off with. Most of my friends know that America is not George Bush and the Christian Militia. But the actions of the figurehead of the nation, along with the power and strength of the right-wing religious lobby groups, is something that does spill over and taint ‘Americans’ in general every so often. I do know a few people who feel America should just be walled in and left to crumble on its own accord. Certain people in the States want to just concentrate on the States and ignore the world and I’m sure certain people outside of the States have similar sentiment :p Personally I think it’ll crumble sooner or later anyway and I’d prefer to not start building more walls especially as there are a number of damn fine people who’d then be trapped with no hint of escape. As to whom is the most ‘wrong-headed’, I’ve no idea and even if I did I wouldn’t like to start naming names. Sorry.

2) Given the choice between immortality for yourself or eternal happiness for a friend, which would you choose? Why? Those are the only options so no making up your own.

In that case the answer is simple. I’d choose immortality for me. Why? Well I could say that its unselfishness – why give one friend eternal happiness when during the course of my immortality I can bring happiness to millions! But at the end of the day given the chance to live forever (in good health) I would love to. There are too many things to learn, see and do to fit into one lifetime and as a lover of history and futurism I’d love to live and see how everything pans out for this little planet and the leeches that call it home.

3) The World Museum of Cinema calls you up and asks you to choose the definitive Stanley Kubrick film, his pinnacle achievement, which one do you choose? Why?

Out of the 16 films he directed I would have to choose 2001: A Space Odyssey. It is the most influential of all of his works and a real masterpiece of cinema (and endurance). I loved 2001 although it wasn’t my favourite of his works (I really enjoyed Full Metal Jacket and Eyes Wide Shut).

4) Would it be weird if I was related to Tony Blair? Should I admit it if I am?

It sure would but before admitting it I’d check the lay of the land with the company you’re in . There’s a lot of folks round these parts who wouldn’t be impressed at present and would probably take Mr T Blairs unpopularity out on Mr J Blair just because :p

5) Hey, sup?

Sitting here, answering some questions and going through a pile of CDs I’m thinking of selling. Not a lot really. Also enjoying having a really nice evening in all by myself and relaxing. It’s very under-rated you know. Thanks for the questions btw.

Re: okay i'll bite.
1. If you were a machine and machines took over the world, what machine would you be and why?

2. Is there anything that science can't explain, or says can't exist, that you believe in?

3. At certain times of our lives we all fall into a musical clique...either with friends, style of dress or just something that we can't stop listening to. What was your most embarrassing? And what 'clique' do you feel would best define you at present if you had to choose one?

4. Pretend for a moment that Judo-Christianity never came about. Which one of the old religions do you think would be dominant and why? Do you think we'd be better off?

5. Why is your nick snesgirl?

4. You have a chance to see your favourite band live for the first time ever and know that it is their last gig before they split up OR make love to someone you've been lusting after for years whose going away and you'll never see again. What do you choose to do?

5. What is your indulgence?

1. Death. I like black, and would spend all of eternity maintaining a blog about death, depression and the lack of sex in my life. In otherwords, live pretty much like I do now!

Seriously, I'd really like to see mortality and life from that perspective. I guess death has always fascinated and scared me. It's something that is impossible to know much about, and the idea of being immortal really appeals to me. That and wearing black day in day out :)

2. Red Dwarf is a personal favourite. Spaced was the best thing i've seen in recent years, with the possible exception of Desperate Housewives which I'm addicted to. But for comic ingenuity and pushing the boundaries while still remaining funny, Monty Python. Nuff said.

I could never pick a best one. My tastes and moods are variable. I know what I don't find funny (Dharma and Greg and similar) but what I do find funny is actually a very broad range. There are times when I find the HGTG hilarious, and other times boring. I won't go into the details about my relationship with my love of comedy.

3. Victorian times. Yes it was a very cruel time, but then again so is now. I love Victorian age fashion, customs and technology. It's always been something that I've loved. I really love advertising from that area, and the technological breakthroughs. The sense of propriety and grace. Yes they are total rose tinted specatcles I'm looking through, but hey I'm allowed :P

4. Make love. Gig's don't appeal to me, I've a fear of crowds thing since I was little. I thought I told you that? Although, to be honest, sex with objects of lust never lives upto expectations in my experience. So um, give me sex with some random hot and intellegent woman, in fact make that two please!

5. Nicotine. I'm a heavy smoker (40 a day). I should really cut down. I've improved recently, am closer to 30 a day, but I should really quit. Heart disease runs in the family, so smoking isn't going to exactly help things.

That said, I do enjoy smoking alot, and don't indulge in anything harder on a regular basis so it could be worse.

The other main contender for my main indulgance is my whining. You read some of my lj so you should be well aware of this!! :P

You can interview me if you like, but I'll waive the updating my Lj thing. I don't do that any more.
