if you were in my movie - shadows of echoes of memories of songs

if you were in my movie
This new virus was spread by huskyteer.


What would you be if you were...

an animal?
A cat, probably. Alternating between playful and moody. Gently rubbing up against you and purring one minute, and clawing bloody lines down you the next. (If you're lucky. Hehehe.)

a vehicle?
A Morris Minor! pto452 is me. Curvy, shiny, an absolute vision of a s3xxy g0th fet15h chyxx0r in black, chrome, and red leather (hey, okay, I can dream) ... stands out from the crowd, people think she's daft but they just don't understand; drives like a dream provided you don't push her too hard. Push her too hard and she complains bitterly and eventually falls apart. ... Sometimes you can hear my gears grinding.

a song?
Probably the extended bloody 10-minute long 12" remix of something that people put on the jukebox because they haven't heard it for ages, then get bored of it after 20 seconds. Probably "Shiny Shiny", by Haysi Fantayzee.

Oh, okay, okay, better answer... A-side: "Dancing Fool" by Frank Zappa. Kitsch, clever, fast, silly, impossible to dance to. B-side: "Angel, Angel, Down We Go Together" by Morrissey. Mopey, angsty, emotionally over-the-top, but kind of touching anyway.

a fruit/vegetable?
Sharon fruit. Nutty on the outside, soft on the inside, no difficulty freeing the orangey bit. Like a cross between an armadillo and a jaffa cake! ... What-EVER. Is it the weekend yet?

a sitcom character?
The Jewish mother in "So Haunt Me". Hangs around and just won't take the bloody hint to JUST GO THE FUCK AWAY, but you can't help listening to her anyway, and hell, she's kind of funny really, and she's usually only trying to help. Well, and interfere. But mostly help.

a city?
Oxford. Reaching towards the sky, stuck on the ground. (City of expiring dreams.) Romantic but also full of commercialism and materialism. Floods occasionally.

a character from Shakespeare?
Hamlet, without a doubt. Wears black, whines about everything but never bloody does anything, makes a mess of it when he does do it, but makes good speeches about it in the meantime.

I am Hamlet's LiveJournal. (I am Jack's delusions of grandeur.)

(Almost, at times, the fool.)

a kitchen utensil?
Well, I'd like to be one of those huge Chinese cleavers ... ohh yes. Mmmm. ... Where was I? Ah, yes -- I suspect I'm actually more like a stainless steel colander: shiny, gets plenty of veg, but still full of holes.

Current Mood: IW4 shininess
Now playing: Shiny bloody Shiny, now, stuck in my head. Gah.

OK, I play.

an animal?
A Komodo Dragon, I think. I like basking, and lying around, and not moving very much most of the time, and using energy only when I have to in short frenetic bursts. And I find their hunting strategy philosophically appealing. [ Bite goat on leg; get nasty dental flora in wound; meanwhile, sit around waiting for a goat someone else has bitten to die of infected wound somewhere close enough you can be bothered enough to crawl to and eat it. Maneki Neko for lizards. ]

a vehicle?
Whatsisname's wheelchair from Snow Crash.

a song?
Depends a lot on mood. Yesterday, something about two-thirds the noisy bits of Carmina Burana and one third "Dominion".

Feeling happier today, and very city-positive.. I think Shriekback's "Bastard Sons of Enoch" would do it, it has the angel element in as well. [ Do you know it ? I can not resist the first two lines. ]

Or alternatively Ellis Paul's "Angel of Manhattan".

a fruit/vegetable?
A cucumber. Cool, contained, and every now and again finding myself in really unusual situations.

a sitcom character?
I always identified with Mork.

a city?
Montreal, without a shadow of a doubt; failing that, some bits of Dublin.

a character from Shakespeare?
Ariel.

I am Hamlet's LiveJournal. (I am Jack's delusions of grandeur.)

I have just remembered a dream I had the other night of a Counterblast to Prufrock which ended "Perhaps I am Prince Hamlet after all." Can't remember a single other thing about it, but I must find something to do with that line.

(Almost, at times, the fool.)

And if the fool would but persist in her folly ?

a kitchen utensil?
A multi-purpose thingummy. Slices, dices, pulls corks from bottles, makes a passable chair and an excellent doorstop..

I didn't know it, but I googled for the lyrics, and oh boy. Will look out for a copy of the album.

When lovely woman stoops to folly and  
Paces about her room again, alone,  
She smoothes her hair with automatic hand,
And puts a record on the gramophone.

What would you be if you were...
an animal...

I am an animal. Okay, assuming humans are out (and I'm not sure that'd be my answer anyway), um, blackbird I think. Or a blue tit.

a vehicle...
HMS Ark Royal. (Not just because I've been putting on weight recently).

a song...

No Rest. (Four o'clock in the morning, still we cannot sleep, turning over, turning round, twisting in our sweat. They say there is no rest for the wicked ones. Dear god what have we done?)

a fruit/vegetable...

Blackberry. Because they grow by themselves, offering free fruit, but on brambles.

a sitcom character...

Brian Aldridge, without question. Or Kate Aldridge.

a city...

Sheffield.

a character from Shakespeare?

Ophelia, no question. Lurk in the background, say something psedudo-pagan and nonsensical in a fit of lack of grammar; never have the courage to do anyhting, but not resisting when the time comes. Be immortalised in nice (if ubiqimoribund) painting.

a kitchen utensil

Potato masher. Because they help make mashed potato.

an animal
A tamed wildcat. Bad tempered but temporarily/permanently responds well to stroking and attention. Likes sleeping in the sun, detests anything remotely like work. Might snap but will probably stay docile with good handling.

a vehicle
A people mover. :-) I probably most closely resemble a Beetle or Moggy at the minute.

a song
I Am The Resurrection, Stone Roses. Too many reasons. Play it loud and think about it.

a fruit/vegetable
cauliflower.

a sitcom character
Yvonne Magruder from the Better Than Life ep, Red Dwarf, or maybe Roseanne...

a city
London. Sprawly, incoherent, full of all sorts of good and bad things, with no particular defining shape or character. But interesting. Slightly grubby round the edges. :-)

a character from Shakespeare
Oh goodness. I can't think. I occasionally have Goneril/Regan moments... used to be Ophelia but not in the last few years.

a kitchen utensil
A potato masher. I don't know quite why, but I have some kind of empathy thing there... work it out for me, I can't!
