20 Questions to a Better Relationship

    eXpressive: 8/10
    Practical: 3/10
    Physical: 8/10
    Giver: 6/10

        You are a XSYG--Expressive Sentimental Physical Giver. This makes you a Sex Bomb.

        You are sexy sex sex sex! The sexness! You are the sexiest, hottest and most charismatic of all types. You are a captivating speaker and a great dinner date -- relaxed, self-effacing, charming and generous. Your type probably has origins in something sad -- trying to keep the peace in a tough family situation, or an early heartbreak -- and you'll probably want to address and resolve that at some point, but in your relationships that heartache is pure gold!

        You lie effortlessly -- not necessarily a bad thing. You can have problems with fidelity. You need frequent praise and validation, and in seeking it you can make decisions that aren't consistent with your general good judgment. In other words, don't cheat on your significant other just because someone is paying attention to you.

        You strongly dislike conflict, and will avoid it. Like an XPYG, you give so much of yourself to your partner that you feel dismissed and unappreciated if you don't get the same in return. But you internalize your feelings more and have a hard time getting over them. You don't *want* to cheat -- you just keep finding yourself in vulnerable situations. But you'll stay with your partner in the long run from guilt and a desire to please.

        Your sex life will always be hot. You are one of the rare people who can keep the fires of passion going forever -- if you find a good match. Find another XSYG and you will never need (or want) anyone else again.

Easy Listening Goth/Punk and other Late Xmas Pressies

I was a very happy bunny earlier. I got a package delivered at the shop from Delphine and Alexandre full of Christmas pressies for me! Yay! They may not have arrived by Dec 25 but then again it allows me a second wave of excitment :-p

Alex sent me a couple of 'A Certain General' CDs. Delphine reckons I'll really like them and from waht's said about them I reckon I probably will. haven't had a chance to listen to them yet though.

Delphine got me the 'Immortel Ad Vitem' DVD which I've been waiting to see since it's French cinematic release last Easter. It's a live-action/CGI adaptation of Enki Bilal's 'Nikopol Trilogy'. I've been a massive fan of Bilal's work for years so the idea of a 'big screen' version of one of his graphic novels gets me really keen, so to speak. The film has had mixed reviews but it's one I really want to see anyway. Report to follow once I've managed to view ir.

She also got me a CD called "Nouvelle Vague" which is great. To quote the sleeve notes....

"The real clue to Nouvelle Vague's modus operandi, however, is in the name. Translating as both new wave in English and bossa nova in (Brazilian) Portuguese - it's the marriage of these two improbable bedfellows that provides the album's thirteen expertly crafted cover versions with their unique lustre. By stripping back arrangements to acoustic instruments, lithe shaker rythms and a parade of guest female vocalists (six French, one Brazilian and one New Yorker), some of the sternest, most uncompromising music ever to grace vinyl is reborn as slim-hipped, retro-futuristic pop. Imagine the cocktail hour smooch of Astrid Gilberto, or Juliet Greco's Rive Gauche croon - but from a darker, stranger parallel universe."

The covers are all excellent reworkings of the songs and some are even better than the originals in my mind :-). The tracks covered are as follows:

Love Will Tear Us Apart - Joy Division
Just Can't Get Enough - Depeche Mode
In A Manner of Speaking - Tuxedomoon
Guns of Brixton - The Clash
This is Not A Love Song - PIL
Too Drunk to Fuck - Dead kennedys
Marian - Sisters of Mercy
Making Plans For Nigel - XTC
A Forest - The Cure
I Melt With You - Modern English
Teenage Kicks - The Undertones
Psyche - Killing Joke
Friday Night Saturday Morning - The Specials
Sorry For Laughing - Propaganda
Wishing (If I Had A Photograph of You) - Flock of Seagulls

If any of you come over to mine please ask to listen to some of it. I'll never listen to some of the originals in the same light again. Inspired and expertly produced!

I wish.........

Part of me always wanted to be able to be invisible. Just imagine all the things you could get away with :-p

Thanks to pwca for this one. I'll try not to post any more meme's for the next few days and get back to proper posts.
You scored as The Invisible Man. You are Griffin, the transparent menace in H. G. Wells' classic novel. Having rendered yourself invisible through an irreversible scientific process, you descend into madness, stalking the world like a ghost. You are a mischievous, corruptible soul with an obsession for power, a path that can only end in destruction.
