Ask Me Anything! (version 2.0)

One week from today marks this blog's fifth anniversary of existence, which seems to me a good time to do another round of Ask Me Anything!. This is simply where readers get to toss questions at me, which I promise to answer. (Not always seriously, though!) The first round of Ask Me Anything! was a lot of fun, so here's hoping for Version 2.0.

So, you know. Ask me anything!

Since I'm first, I get two questions. That's just how these things work, you know.

1. While I, too, will rally to the defense of the Prequel trilogy, who would have been better suited to write dialogue for the scripts so that they didn't sound like a smarmy high school drama class production?

2. From your ROWR feature (and going back to when it went under a different name I can't recall right now), can you cull your top five?

1. If you were to live anywhere else, where would you be? What are your favorite 5 or 10 cities?

2. If you were forced to give uop overalls, what would you wear, and would anyone have the faintest idea who you were?

3. What 2006 death affected you most deeply?

4. Presidents' Day is coming. Who are the five best and the five worst Presidents?

5. Valentine's Day: a wonderful opportunity to show love and affection or a capitalist ruse?

6. What's bigger, Wyoming or Colorado?

First I like the new blog look. I liked the old one too!
I like Simon's questions! How much snow have you gotten this winter?

Who said, "I'd rather read the worst book ever written than watch the best movie ever made?"

These were suggested by Belladonna in comments to a post of mine a while back, and I've been saving them for this iteration of Ask Me Anything!.

What was your favorite toy during childhood?

What piece of writing are you most proud of and why?

What's the best advice you ever received? Did you follow it?

If you could meet any one person, living or dead, who would it be?

What would like to be doing n your life five years from now?

How do you determine what is private and what you are willing to publicly disclose on our blog?


Carry on....

If you could become (in a poof-your-wish-is-granted sort of instantaneous fashion) the most talented person in the world at any one thing, what thing would you choose?

Why does Jimmy crack corn?

AND...

Why don't people care that he does?

I have pondered these questions for what seems and eternity.

I just found your blog via google, as I was searching for some comment on James Horner's Apollo 13 score. So as long as you're entertaining questions, here's mine: Have you ever noticed that, in the last moments of the last scene of the movie (on the Iwo Jima), Horner moves chromatically away from the tonic, thus ending on a chord that bears no relation to the tonality he's been working on for at least the last 20 minutes of the film? If you haven't noticed it, do you know where I can find fellow fanatics who would be driven as crazy as I by this nonsense?
