Ok -- who or what is moonface?
Now pick one of mine if you like. :)
Moonface are a rock band, based in Brighton and London. Great live band, and I'm not just saying that 'cause I used to live with their drummer.
Who are the Brewer Twins?
YOW. Twincest. *beams*
What does "martyrs of capitalism" mean?
Pick one of mine?
Eeep - did I not take that off? I put that there in an "angry socialist" mood because I'd been reading about the G8 in Genoa and the death of Carlo Giuliani. I thought I'd taken it down, must have forgotten...
Who's Chinghiz Khan?
Genghis Khan, spelled funny and modern. I actually think Chinggis or Chingghis is more common than Chinghiz, but I really like Chinghiz Aitmatov (Kirghiz SF writer), too.
Why, dude? Why?
And you can ask about one of mine, if you like ^^
Because I had a crush on him when I was eight and my inner child still does.
Who's Rufus Shinra?
Your inner child is weird :p
Rufus is one of the minor villains in Final Fantasy Seven. He's vice-president - and later president - of ShinRa Inc., the evil corporation which pretty much controls the planet and does various fucked up experiments on humans.
He's evil. And hot. And eventually gets blown up.

The Arcata Eye is a small-town American newspaper, also published on the web, with the best and funniest police log column in the entire world. Go Google it, and you'll see what I mean. :)

Who or what is "withnail"?
Withnail! You've never heard of the movie "Withnail and I"? Get thee to a video store and rent it - you won't regret it. British tragi-comedy, stars Richard E. Grant, Paul McGann and Richard Griffiths.
Dare I ask what "the circle of incest" means?
|Date:||March 17th, 2004 - 09:20 am|| |
Heh. "The circle of incest" is this thing that we made up in drama. Our performance this year is entirely Shakespeare - piecing together a play from different bits of different plays - as we lost almost all of our budget last year on royalties for the two plays we did (yay for public domain, man).
So, there are all these different scenes, and a fairly small group of people playing most of the roles. And since Shakespeare was big on the family drama things or the newlywed things (or both, even) there are lots of relations in each of the scenes. We've a tendency to carry these relations from scene to scene, and so the circle of incest was named. (At the moment my friend Sarah is her own daughter, I'm the grandfather of a senior - while I'm a sophomore - another friend Jacquie is the ghost of her grandfather and her grandfather, and another friend Lovell is the person he killed. Well, he's really Brian, but we called him Lovell at first because nobody could remember his name and it stuck.)
And wow, that was a really long explanation, wasn't it? Heh. I shall indeed rent Withnail and I as soon as I get the chance, though. Thankee!
OK. What is 'zaphod beeblebrox'? Not only does it sound very odd, it sounds weird and absurd and cool.
You can do my list if you want to, but most of my interests are pretty stright-forward.
Zaphod Beeblebrox is a character from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. He has two heads, both of which are insane.
Who's Melina Marchetta?
Melina Marchetta is an Australian young adult author. She's written two books, Looking for Alibrandi and Saving Francesca, and I'm completely in love with both of them, though more so Francesca. They're pretty funny, and are written from a quintessential teenage point of view. I read Saving Francesca whenever I need to feel better *g*.
I've been meaning to read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy for ages. Argh. I'm so busy this year I don't have time to think.
"Bedrooms and Hallways" - it sounds like a band or a book, but I'm not sure which.
And dude, I knew far more of your list than I thought I would. *grins* Oh, and pick one of mine?
Bedrooms and Hallways is one of my favourite movies - not least because it features Hugo Weaving and the very pretty Tom Hollander having simulated gay sex in a swimming pool. And in various beds. And other places. ;)
What's the "backpack of doom"?
There's a Hugo Weaving movie out there I missed? Damn. Have to go look for that...
The Back Of Doom. Otherwise known as Leonard. *grins* The rather large backpack I use on my travels. After five months of lugging him around airports and bus stations and people's houses and hostels, and living out of him, he developed a name, a personality, and Doom-ness.
The Corinthian? For some reason really old footie teams spring to mind there.
And I apologise if my interests aren't that exciting.
The Corinthian is a character from Sandman - a nightmare. His first incarnation escapes from the Dreaming and becomes a serial killer, the second incarnation is slightly more sympathetic but still scary as hell.
What's the Black Minorca?
The Black Minorca is my dog, which is sad. My grandfather used to have a black labrador like us, and he called her the Black Minorca when she was naughty - it has piratey connotations that I would tell you but I have no idea about.
It also the best name for a pirate ship that has ever been invented, and I intend to use it when I become a pirate.
