  • Mood:

Meme things !

Two memes for the price of one, or something like that ... (tagged by the_ladylark, and how can I refuse a fellow epeeist ?)

1. Total number of films I own on DVD/video:

According to rwrylsin, who has our DVD/video database on her Mac, about 111 (as she said, a lot of box sets scan as one item, so the number of actual physical disks/tapes we have would be closer to 150).

2. The last film I bought:

Wings of Desire (a slow-moving but lovely movie by Wim Wenders).

3. The last film I watched:

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, on Sunday. Worth a look !

4. Five films that I watch a lot:

Well, I've seen The Princess Bride lots of times (after all, what fencing video night is complete without it ?).
City Hunter (Jackie Chan in a great Hong Kong action/comedy film)
Star Wars (it appears on TV fairly regularly, and if I run across it while channel-hopping, I still find it hard to stop watching)

... and I'm not sure if anything else really stands out for this one.

5. Tag 5 people and have them put this in their journal:

Hmmmm. My semi-random picks are : kefalotiri, alexwinolj, pickwick, tlingel, and halfflat.
Ignore this if you've already done this or don't want to do it.

1) Total number of books owned?

(again, this is the merged collection of rwrylsin and I; there is no "his" and "hers", just "ours" :-) )
About 1500, including fiction and non-fiction.

2) The last book I bought?

Glass Dragons, by Sean McMullen, and Altered Carbon, by Richard Morgan (yes, a post-Eastercon purchase).

3) The last book I read?

Coincidentally, Glass Dragons.

4) Book that means a lot to me?

Voyage from Yesteryear, by James P. Hogan.

5) Tag 5 people and have them put this in their journal

arcturax, mireille21, starrsong, dmw, and snowking.
Again, ignore if you want.
