Reply paperback writer April 24, 2007 at 6:33 am The Stand – by Stephen King Rubber Soul – The Beatles The Empire Strikes Back Reply Elisabeth April 24, 2007 at 6:37 am Book: Proust’s In Search of Lost Time, several volumes, lots of good reading. Album: I’d have to draw lots between Elvis Costello’s Armed Forces, The Clash’s London Calling, or The Talking Heads’ Remain in Light. But, in fact, I would bring my i-Pod. Film: Again, toss-up between Cédric Klapisch’s Un Air de Famille and Christopher Guest’s Waiting for Guffman (1996 seems to be my year for movies!) Reply Bre April 24, 2007 at 6:50 am Ulysses (James Joyce), Top of the World Live (the Dixie Chicks), and Say Anything (John Cusack!!) Reply Churlita April 24, 2007 at 7:22 am Book: Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinsin Album: Garden State Soundtrack Movie: Fight Club Reply Dana April 24, 2007 at 7:25 am Cruel question, Neil. Are you trying to make our brains explode? Book: “Compact Edition” of the Oxford English Dictionary. I am taking BOTH volumes, not just part of the alphabet. Album: “Traveller’s Prayer” by John Renbourn Movie: The Princess Bride But those are only today’s answers. Reply whoorl April 24, 2007 at 7:26 am The Witching Hour – Anne Rice Grace – Jeff Buckley It’s a toss up between Clash of The Titans and Mr. Mom Reply Kyra April 24, 2007 at 7:36 am Hmmm – do we get sunblock too? Book: Breath of Magic Album: All the right reasons; Nickleback Movie: Practical Magic (these were tough, I read about a book every day or two, adore movies, and always listen to music… looks more like prison than an island at this point.) Reply Not Faint Hearted April 24, 2007 at 7:57 am hmmm. Today it might be: book: Mists of Avalon Marion Zimmer Bradley album: Bach Brandenburg Concerti movie: Cinema Paradisio Reply Bryna April 24, 2007 at 8:04 am Glass Castles; A Memoir by Jeannette Walls Les Miserables Soundtrack (or if we are bringing iPods, I’m going that route… but I think that’s cheating) Spaceballs Reply Non-Highlighted Heather April 24, 2007 at 8:29 am In this moment: Book: Jane Eyre Music: Axis: Bold As Love, Jimi Hendrix Film: Annie Hall Reply Non-Highlighted Heather April 24, 2007 at 8:32 am Or it could be… Book: David Copperfield Music: Regatta de Blanc, The Police Film: An Affair to Remember Reply kapgar April 24, 2007 at 8:41 am My post is coming tomorrow.

It is deserted island…not desert island. Book- Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe Album- Message in a bottle by The Police Movie- Castaway Reply Marilyn April 24, 2007 at 9:54 pm * The Poisonwood Bible – Barbara Kingsolver * Hard to beat Innervisions * Albert Brooks’ “Lost in America” Reply tamarika April 25, 2007 at 2:21 am Book: The Invitation Album: Love – the Beatles Movie: Two for the Road – Hepburn & Finney Reply Neil April 25, 2007 at 3:21 am Mr. Mogul — buy Mrs. Mogul a DVD player!

Book: Pride and Prejudice Item: My toothbrush Movie: The Best Years of Our Lives (1946) Reply teahouseblossom April 25, 2007 at 3:33 am Woops. Sorry, it was “album,” not “item.” My bad. My album would be: Jean-Yves Thibaudet plays the Ravel Piano concertos. Sigh. I feel like search a nerd. Reply teahouseblossom April 25, 2007 at 3:34 am Woops. Sorry, it was “album,” not “item.” My bad. My album would be: Jean-Yves Thibaudet plays the Ravel Piano concertos. Sigh. I feel like such a nerd. Reply Malnurtured Snay April 25, 2007 at 6:36 am Couldn’t I just have one book STORE, one video STORE and one music STORE instead? Reply You can call me, 'Sir' April 25, 2007 at 6:53 am ‘Infinite Jest’-David Foster Wallace ‘Kind of Blue’-Miles Davis ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ Thanks for asking! Reply Roberta 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! Reply Neil April 25, 2007 at 7:45 am Malnurtured — it’s a deserted island, not the Sherman Oaks Galleria. Reply N April 25, 2007 at 8:43 am Book: “How to signal passing ships” Album: “Movie Adagios” Movie: “Castaway” 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? Reply mmariem3 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) Reply Jody April 25, 2007 at 8:53 am Good Omens – Neil Gaiman Any Where But Here – The Ataris My Best Friend is a Vampire – (I do love the 80’s and all the cheese it comes with) Reply MsMamma April 25, 2007 at 9:15 am Hey thanks for noticing my sequence was out of order, much better now! Book: Catcher in the Rye Music: The Queen is Dead – The Smiths Movie- Excalibur Reply Blitz Krieg April 25, 2007 at 9:24 am book: The Frontiersmen music: The Lamb Lies Down on Braodway movie: Dire Straits: On the Night Reply Neil April 25, 2007 at 9:49 am I have to catch up on some of these interesting choices! Reply pam 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. Reply miriam April 27, 2007 at 9:27 am 1. Book–Middlemarch–I love it, and it will last until I’m rescued or dead. 2. Album: The trout by Schubert, or something long and noisy by Berlioz; 3. Movie: My Fair Lady. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *Comment Name * Email * Website This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
