I have been meme-slapped. You can blame Joe, if you’re into that sort of thing.

What was your earliest film-related memory?
After wracking my brain, I think the earliest I have is when I was eight, and we were on my Dad’s first sabbatical, in England. We were somewhere in the south west, Devon or Cornwall, there was a gale blowing, and Mom and Dad plunked my brother and I in front of the only TV in the hotel we were staying at while they were in the pub. On said TV played ROBINSON CRUSOE ON MARS, which at the time, I felt was the acme of American film-making. (This can be attributed to the fact that I was eight, and that Dad brought us a few rounds of cider, not realizing it was alcoholic in England.

Name two favorite lines from movies:
“That rabbit’s dynamite!”

“All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?”

Three Jobs You’d Do if You Could Not Work In “The Biz”:

  • Shrubber.
  • Itinerant loofah salesman.
  • Wealthy philanthropist.

Name four jobs you have actually held outside The Industry.

  • Bartender at The Rod and Gun Lounge.
  • Singing telegram delivery man/gorilla.
  • Typist (not to be confused with writer).

Three book authors I like:

  • Kurt Vonnegut
  • Philip K. Dick
  • Christopher Moore

Name two movies you would like to remake or properties you’d like to adapt:

  • Lamb, The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal

Tom Stoppard

Three people I’m tagging to answer this meme next:
Dr. Tundra
And, in case you’d like to go to another blog now, may I suggest Mr. Snitch, who has discovered this picture of Batgirl. This should suffice to answer all the meme questions.


  1. Are there any poverty-stricken philanthropists?
