3. You will update your LJ with the answers to the questions.

4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.

5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions

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.
