Friday Fives

1. Everyone's got crazy relatives. Tell us about some of yours. um, I can't think of anything or anyone too crazy. I don't even have a relative in jail. Sorry for the let down. 2. Which television shows, recent or old, were you most disappointed to see cancelled? Alf, Almost Home (a show on CBS about the 60s with great music), News Radio (though I stopped watching after Phil's death). Quantum Leap (I still haven't seen the final 2 hour farewell - 'the leap home'. Am hoping it will be put on DVD... and you people wonder how I still live in my parent's basement.) 3. Which deaths of famous people have made you the saddest? Phil Hartman - I can't think of one that upset me or angered me so much. I guess I am used to people getting killed of their own fault, one way or another (drugs, politics, keyboardist for the Grateful Dead, cast member of SNL... etc). Phil got killed by his crazed and coked up ex wife, and it seemed so unfair. I mean, John Lennon was before my time, and we all saw Kurt Cobain's death coming a mile away. 4. Make up your own church. That is a loaded question, and to be fair I should come clean. Ok, I am back... and having done that... let's get to the question. First; I am a devout, practicing atheist. Second; I an real life licensed Reverend in the Universal Life Church. When I see a chuch I think of the great things we can do with it. Jimi Hendrix called his concerts 'electric churches', and Springsteen has a similar bit. Because music is my religion, concerts are ceremonies and Red Rocks is my church. Hey, I know that sounds hokey... but when you fuck up, you have the bible to turn to to make you feel bad. Being an Atheist... I have to make myself feel bad... without any external guidance. I am a very joyful person, so that is not easy. For this I recommend some Cat Stevens, Counting Crows, or anything Bob Dylan ever did. 5. What have you killed with a spade or other blunt instrument? Extra points awarded at my discretion for style, elan and sheer absurdity Between you and I (and I mean that literally, readership is in the single digits) - when I was a kid I had a chicken. This was a little chicken that looked more like a gerbil than anything else. I made a great pen for him in the backyard. He got out one day and I didn't see him and I stepped on him. He was dead. I still feel bad about that. Silly, huh? I have probably done more significant damage in management having to fire people and take away their livelihood. They had plenty of chances to get their shit together, the little chicken did not. Oh yeah, I killed Kurt Cobain too, but that was really more a mis-understanding. via Roy
