Sigh. I feel like search a nerd.
April 25, 2007 at 3:34 am

‘Infinite Jest’-David Foster Wallace
‘Kind of Blue’-Miles Davis
‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’
Thanks for asking!
April 25, 2007 at 7:10 am
The Princess Bride — William Goldman
Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris — (oh, but which version?)
Pride and Prejudice — the A&E version
But goodness knows I’d regret this, or any choice I’d be limited to!
April 25, 2007 at 7:45 am
Malnurtured — it’s a deserted island, not the Sherman Oaks Galleria.
April 25, 2007 at 8:43 am
Book: “How to signal passing ships”
Album: “Movie Adagios”
I may be a cynic here, but the less time I spend on this island, the better… unless my inlaws are in town. The “movie adagios” would be great to listen to while watching the waves, but the book and film would be resource material for getting off the island (so that I could get back to the Sherman Oaks Galleria and get some real books, movies and music).
I’ve totally killed the jist of the question, haven’t I?
April 25, 2007 at 8:45 am
Nice article on the Poetry Thursday site. I don’t think you are alone about commenting on artistic expression mainly because expression is often personal. One way to comments is if what you see, hear, read has a personal meaning for you.
Book: Count of Mounte Cristo or maybe Harry Potter
Music: MP3 Player (if I have a DVD player to see the movie – I can bring my MP3- right?)
Movie: The Thin Man series(anyone of them if I had to choose)

movie: Dire Straits: On the Night
April 25, 2007 at 9:49 am
I have to catch up on some of these interesting choices!
April 25, 2007 at 3:38 pm
I have no idea what my three are, but you know what? I LOVE that Stevie Wonder album. I think I’ll go play it right now. Thanks for reminding me of it.
April 27, 2007 at 9:27 am
