A Secular Franciscan Meme.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 7:32 pm

Randy, of A Secular Franciscan Life, created his own meme (I think he could probably use some jigsaw puzzles), and he listed me among those he would like to see respond thereto. Randy is a good guy, and he has provided me with answers to some of my Idaho questions. In addition, over the years, he has provided me with lots of good stuff to read, so I am happy to oblige, although I don’t know how to do the html for those nifty bullets that he used on his site.

Five Songs that Turn Me On
N.B. I always have a tough time answering this question. There are just tooooooo many. However, here are the ones that came to mind today.
Running on Empty by Jackson Brown This pretty much describes my life
China Grove by the Doobie Brothers If the underlying hook in that song doesn’t grab you by the diaphragm and not let go, there is something definitely wrong with you.
Where or When by Dion and the Belmonts
In My Life by the Beatles
Let it Be Me by the Everly Brothers

Five Best Movie Dramas
Casablanca I agree with Randy on this one
The Godfather, Parts I and II
Sophie’s Choice An emotionally draining experience, but a wonderful film
Fail Safe
Saving Private Ryan

Five Best Movie Comedies
Blazing Saddles
The Odd Couple
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
The Jerk “This is shit, and that’s Shinola.”

Rather than tag anyone, I hereby invite anyone who stops by here to have a go at it.
