memes to pass the time  
I've got 'The Other Woman' downloading, but since it may take a while and I'm totally bored, let's meme! Two memes, tagged by the lovely lenina20 .

1. You have 50 dollars in your pocket, what do you do with it?
I should say save it. I'd probably spend them at the first bookstore I find.

2. What is your most guilty pleasure?
Pairing Desmond with every male being that seems suited. I feel totally guilty because I know he loves Penny (and that's why I can't pair him with any other woman), but, sparing you the meta, I've got this urgency to slash the guy with everyone which is kinda insane. But I love it.

3. What one posession do you value the most?
Uuuhm, talking in money value I guess my CD collection, talking in affective value, some clothes and rings my mother passed me.

4. Are you confused as to what lies ahead of you?
Absolutely, my friend.

5. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Uhm, I should be graduating. Let's hope.

6. Name a personal hero.
I think Anne Frank has been it for a good chunk of my adolescence and still is.

7. If the person you like doesn't accept you, would you continue to wait for them to change their feelings?
It depends. If I like said person but I recognize it's a fling, I wouldn't wait. If I'm really gone for said person, I'd wait.

8. If the person you secretly liked was already attached, what would you do?
Well, I'd probably look elsewhere. If said person gets free and I still like them..

9. Is there anything that has made you unhappy recently?
Failing an exam two times. The first time he sent me home after I did a good half an hour with his assistant because I was wrong about a place where a Greek poet from, like, IVth century BC was born without even asking me another question and the second time because he said it was too early for me in my scolarship to take an exam as difficult as his. I really don't care since it wasn't a subject that was obligatory (I study philosophy, not ancient literature, and I did just fine in the exams I had to do just fine) and everyone else that took the exam with me failed it so I guess I'm not alone in that, but it pissed me off and I'll have to get the credits elsewhere. Especially because I had studied hard for it.

10. What do you want most in life?
Graduating, mostly.

11. Which of the 7 deadly sins do you relate most to? Why?
Sloth. [I quote]

12. If you could go anywhere right now where would you go?
Paris. Right. Now.

13. Who is currently the most important person/people to you?
My family and three or four close friends.

13.2. What song do you relate to at the moment?
Relating, IDK, but my current favorite is probably There's a Story in Your Voice by Elvis Costello.

14. What gives you hope?
Currently, not much. But it's a question that would require much more pondering on my part and I've not been awake enough.

15. Do you believe there is nothing higher than human kind?
I don't believe that the human kind is something high in the first place, but if you mean I believe in God, I don't. I think that aliens exist, though, and that they watch us and laugh at how idiotic we are.

16. What do you think about love?
That it's a rare thing to find.

17. Do you give your all in a relationship?

18. Do you have a favorite quote? If so, what is it?
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows. George Orwell, 1984 which would need to be quoted entirely.

19. What type of friends do you like?
Friends who are actually there for you when you need them, with whom you can talk and with whom you share something. And if they don't like to go to the discotheque it's a bonus.

20. What are you going to do once you finish this meme?
Another meme and then I'm watching Lost. If it's over, the download I mean.

List your top five favorite musical artists.
List your top five favorite songs from each artist.
Tag five people to do the same.

(I had already done this but since I love it, I'm going with my other five favorite artists. Last time I did Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, Led Zeppelin, Warren Zevon and Patti Smith. This time we have..)

Bob Dylan
With God on my Side
The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll
Mr Tambourine Man
Just Like a Woman
Masters of War

The Doors
When the Music's Over
Love Her Madly
Light my Fire
People are Strange
Roadhouse Blues

Who's Gonna Ride your Wild Horses
The Ground Beneath Her Feet
Sunday Bloody Sunday
I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of

Stone Temple Pilots

Still Remains
Dead and Bloated
Interstate Love Song

John Frusciante

Time Tonight
A Corner
A Firm Kick

Plus, as a bonus, an Italian artist which would be way up into my favorites but I guess isn't very known outside of Italy (and Ramazzotti is. Argh. Don't let me start.)

Fabrizio De André

Il testamento di Tito
Nella mia ora di libertà
Il bombarolo
Cantico dei drogati

If you want to do them, do them ;)
Arrgh and the download still isn't over. Okay, almost. *patiently waits*
feeling: awakeawake

Your choices weren't at all bad! And REM kick ass ;) I'm not that into the other four you chose but sure isn't ignorance! ;)

You definitely chose some good presents for you, that is probably my favorite book ever and a totally mindblowing read. ♥

Very nice choices! I really like John Frusciante's Chances. Actually I like all the stuff on Shadows Collide with People. Great stuff all around though. :D And think I"ll have to do this over at my place.

Shadows Collide With People is probably my favorite record of his with Inside of Emptiness. And you like Des and John? You totally win at life ;) if you do it I'd love to read yours!
