tell tale heart
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
I woke up in a Soho doorway
A policeman knew my name
He said "You can go sleep at home tonight
If you can get up and walk away"
I staggered back to the underground
And the breeze blew back my hair
I remember throwin' punches around
And preachin' from my chair
chorus:
Well, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Tell me, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
'Cause I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
I took the tube back out of town
Back to the Rollin' Pin
I felt a little like a dying clown
With a streak of Rin Tin Tin
I stretched back and I hiccupped
And looked back on my busy day
Eleven hours in the Tin Pan
God, there's got to be another way
Who are you?
Ooh wa ooh wa ooh wa ooh wa ...
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
(chorus)
I know there's a place you walked
Where love falls from the trees
My heart is like a broken cup
I only feel right on my knees
I spit out like a sewer hole
Yet still recieve your kiss
How can I measure up to anyone now
After such a love as this?
(chorus)

-- The Who, "Who Are You"

From the shower of anoisblue comes a neat little meme. Someone posts the meme in their journal. Anyone (presumably from a direct friends list) can then ask the poster to interview them. The poster asks the interviewee five questions. The interviewee posts the answers and their friends may now ask them for an interview. In short, you may now ask me to interview you.

altamira16 wants to know...

If you started your own cult, what premise or values would you like your followers to believe?
I think I would like any cult of mine to be socially subversive. It would be a cult based on the fundamental value of, to quote Utah Phillips, "You have to mess with people." I would have my minions challenge social norms.\
You are known for your unusual attire. What article of clothing do you like best, and why?
Despite all my silly hats, my favorite article of clothing is my cargo shorts with 7 pockets. I can carry my keys, pens, wallet, notebooks in two pockets (which is my standard haul). Then I've got pockets for a water bottle, a novel, random paper, and whatever else I might need. And somehow they don't fall off. My clothing ideal is comfortable and functional, with silly and outrageous as an added benefit.
Though you seem sociable enough, there are a lot of people that seem to recognize you only by your appearance. Have you had any interesting encounters while approaching strangers or while being approached by them?
I do often have people approach me and try to buy (or at least find) drugs. I've also had people approach me and ask to touch my hair in a combined state of cosmic awe and alcoholic daze. When I shook the Dalai Lama's hand, he reached up and jingled the bells on my hat.
What do you consider to be the most difficult aspect of being a graduate student?
The fact that I'm still an undergraduate in many senses. I'm not technically a grad. student yet, so I've run up against some bureaucratic issues, like not getting paid to TA. I'm also still in undergrad mode in many ways. I don't yet have the discipline to get lots of research done before the last minute. (I had this discipline during high school, but seem to have lost it in my senior year there.) My routines and habits haven't changed much since my junior year. These are some of the reasons I don't plan to go directly to a Ph.D. program.
And a hokey question to mock "Love Connection": If you were a dessert, what would you be?
Some sort of funky individualized pie. Sweet, tart, and creative, all in one warm package. A pie proceeded by its reputation. (Pie Night is the bestest!)

The floodgates stand open. Others can feel free to ask me five questions as well; you don't have to wait for me to respond to your answers to my questions to you. :-)

1) One of your favorite phrases is "It {made, makes} me very happy." What sort of internal experience does this usually describe? Does it differ for different stimuli?

2) Of what about your body are you most fond? Least fond?

5) Three sir. 3) What is the silliest moment you can remember? What is the silliest thing you've ever thought of? What's the siliest thing you've ever been told?

4) How do you prepare to play a role on stage? How does this differ from how you prepare to play a role in "real" life?

5) How would you describe your spiritual and religious ideas and practices to someone who is unfamiliar with Paganism?


Post that and let the meme spread!

I'm interested in your selection of pies, sir. Would you bake me up about 5? I'm hungry.

1) In online writings and chat rooms, your discourse often seems disconnected. How much of this is intentional surrealism and how much reflects an underlying chaotic thought structure? Does it surprise you as much as it surprises your audience?

2) You are alone in a dark room. What do you think about?

3) In a fit of zaniness, you've altered one half of your body. What have you done to what?

4) If you were to write a screenplay, what sort of movie would it be? And how much resemblence would it bear to the movies you like to watch?

5) What are you most afraid of?

Put that in your journal and smoke post it.

¡Entrevístese me!
Interviewez-moi!
Interviewen Sie mich!
Intervistilo!

Entreviste-me!

Did you know that altavista's babelfish translates from russian to english but not the other way around?

1) What draws you to anime and related Japanese popular media rather than American-made (or other cultural) entertainment? Are there homegrown gems you like as well?

2) What role has education played in your life? What role would you like it to play?

3) In your eyes, what is the most important trait for someone to have? Does it vary basd on the person's role in your life?

4) What question do you ask yourself a lot?

5) In five years, what do you want to be most proud of?

Post the answers in your journal and invite folks to ask you for an interview. If you'd like, you can start with me :-) Enjoy.
