The CD meme (from frog and other than my CD picks, this is all in her words)

Here’s how it works. You select ten CDs you’d take with you to a desert island. You can take them and no others. The only stipulation is that they must come from your current CD library. Modest anthologies (two, maybe three discs) are permitted, but, say, the dozen plus discs in the complete series of the late Isaac Stern, A Life in Music, would not be.

Further rules state that self-made mixes are not allowed, but tribute albums, soundtracks, etc. are OK.

My picks:

1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer – Once More With Feeling (the musical)

2. Maroon 5 – Songs About Jane

3. Bree Sharp – Cheap and Evil Girl

4. BNL – Greatest Hits

5. Love Actually soundtrack

6. Kohl’s Christmas CD that I bought the Christmas I did my theme gifts for the first time

7. Matchbox 20 – Yourself or Someone Like You (I was going to use my last 3 slots for this CD and the next two but then I thought “Hey, if I was trapped on a desert island, Beth would find me and she would bring the follow-up CDs.” Because that’s the kind of person Beth is)

8. Dido – No Angel

9. 3 Doors Down – The Better Life

10. Vivaldi – The 4 Seasons. On violin, which makes it even cooler.

Via Grace.

(I would never go to a desert island, and if I were on a desert island I’d be too busy trying to get off it to worry about CDs, so the first meme won’t do.)

DO IT

1. name: Robert ~ Marlénè

2. age: 36

3. where on earth do you live: the front bedroom of the second house on the right on my street in the Crocker Highlands neighborhood of Oakland (that’s in the north, nowhere near LA), California, United States, North America.

4. what makes you happy: beautiful things and kind people.

5. what have you been listening to lately: my Berlin Cabaret Songs by Ute Lemper is getting a lot of play lately.

6. do you enjoy reading my blog: No, I would rather gouge out my eyes with a rusted tin spork (sarcasm is not my forte, but I couldn’t resist).

7. if so, why: It’s like hearing my own thoughts in a different place and body… a similarity of experience and of perception that helps me to understand myself better.

8. interesting fact about you: When I was eleven, I had two canine baby teeth removed from the roof of my mouth; incidentally, my father never grew his canine baby teeth.

9. are you in love at the moment: No. Kind of sad, but it leaves so much more time for leisure activities like lying in bed and staring at the ceiling wishing I were dead. (BTW, it’s been eight kissless years for me).

10. favourite destination: Victoria, British Columbia. So pretty, so civilized, such a nice journey.

11. favourite quote: “You can’t direct the wind, but you can adjust your sails.” I don’t know who said it.

12. will you post this in your blog: Maybe, maybe not. We shall see.

RECOMMEND

1. a movie: I really liked Big Fish and would happily recommend it to anyone.

2. a book: I always recommend Mary Renault’s The Persian Boy, but actually I think everyone should read Ethan Mordden’s How Long Has This Been Going On?

3. a band, song or album: The original Broadway cast album of Thoroughly Modern Millie. I can’t find my copy, though
