Meme Band-wagon jumping (again)....

Name a CD you own that no-one else on your friends list does:
Hmmm. Knowing some of the people on my friends list this one could prove tricky. I'm going to take a gambit and go for The Flight Commander 'A Room Full of This'. The Flight Commander wsa Simon Hinkler's band after he left The Mission.

Name a book you own that no-one else on your friends list does:
Now I feel a lot more confident about this one. Whilst my book collection is probably as extensive as my CD collection (if not mroe so) less of my friends have extensive book collections. I'm going to choose 'Urban Future 21: A Global Agenda For Twenty-First Century Cities' which was published in 2000 by the Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Housingin conjunction with E & FN Spon it covers the challenges of the urban explosion in the century to come. It's findings were presnted at the Conference Urban 21 in Berlin in July 2000 and the research was commissioned by the Worlds Commission on 21st-Centry Urbanization.

Name a movie you own on DVD/VHS/etc that no-one else on your friends list does:
Again this could be tricky. 'Hardware', which was a futuristic apolocayptic film featuring cameos from such talents as Iggy Pop, Lemmy and Carl McCoy. It was also my first introduction to the music Ministry (even if they played a GWAR performance to it!).

Name a place that you have visited that no-one else on your friends list has:
Nevache. A small village on the French/Italian border in the Alps. Delphine's family maintain a retreat up there and it's a wonderful place. I've only been in the sumemr months for long walks and excursions over the border into unsuspecting Italy.

To be honest, Flight Commander if nothing like The Mission at all and was released with very little fanfare. I'm not sure how I ended up getting my copy but it's got 'Promo' stamped all over it so I'm guessing I was eitehr working for the record shop when it was released or one of the guys who was threw it my way before I made the transisitiom from 'punter' to 'employee'.

I neever really did like Hardware. So, not sure how I came to own it.

Damn you sir. What about 'I Brought A Vampire Motorcycle'???

Do you own that one?

Do ya? Do ya?

I got it from the TV, but I think was a victim of the Troma marathon on C4 years ago.

You're talking to a man who spent 4 years working in a video shop and who thinks Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers is the highlight of his collection. I think you might have to go a little more highbrow.
