I’ve been tagged!

Someone did it to me, now I have to do it to four others…saucy!

The excellent left wing US blog, Renegade Eye, is responsible for this. It’s a bit like that game you played in the playground – tag. I was linked with three others and now I link to four other blogs. They have to mention me when they nominate four more.

But first I have to answer the following questions...

1: Black and White or Color; how do you prefer your movies?
Black and white – like that George Clooney film about McCarthy with lots of silences in it.

2: What is the one single subject that bores you to near-death?

3: MP3s, CDs, Tapes or Records: what is your favorite medium for prerecorded music?

4: You are handed one first class plane ticket to anywhere in the world and ten million dollars cash. All of this is yours provided that you leave and not tell anyone where you are going … Ever. This includes family, friends, everyone. Would you take the money and ticket and run?
Yup! Waiter, mine's the Bollinger…

5: Seriously, what do you consider the world’s most pressing issue now?
The way governments use fear as a way of disciplining us with ever more authoritarian laws.

6: How would you rectify the world’s most pressing issue?
Through argument and debate. Humans have to remember that we are the authors of our own destiny and the subjects, not the objects, of history.

7: You are given the chance to go back and change one thing in your life; what would that be?
I think I would like to have been born a gorgeous woman (but don’t worry, I am not considering any radical surgery). That way I could go to the cinema and sit in the back row all by myself! And then I would take myself out to dinner.

8: You are given the chance to go back and change one event in world history, what would that be?
We could have done without the Holocaust.

9: A night at the opera, or a night at the Grand Ole’ Opry –Which do you choose?
Dolly Parton as Madame Butterfly!

10: What is the one great unsolved crime of all time you’d like to solve?,
Jack the Ripper - and in one fell swoop put an end to a rather prurient industry.

11: One famous author can come to dinner with you. Who would that be, and what would you serve for the meal?
Marquis de Sade – Pot Noodle

12: You discover that John Lennon was right, that there is no hell below us, and above us there is only sky — what’s the first immoral thing you might do to celebrate this fact?
I think I have just about done all the immoral things I could have already.

OK, so time to tag 4 other people. They are all from Central and Eastern Europe.

* Warsaw Station
* Orange Ukraine
* Registan
* Kurczeblader – best Polish language blog. Let’s get this thing going on the Polish blogs.
