Q&A w/Ruth

What are your favorite

Classical/Instrumental/Just Plain Old: Tomita; Debussy; Aaron Copland; Satie; Scriabin; Edith Piaf; Marlene Dietrich; show tunes

In general, I'll listen to most anything that's got good chord changes, interesting vocal harmonies or soaring arpeggios. Vapid lyrics require particularly good soaring arpeggios to compensate.

I am passionate about books in general. I don't tend to read as much sci-fi or fantasy as I used to, though I'm partial to Tanith Lee, Tolkien, older Anne McCaffrey, Patricia McKillip, and Robin McKinley. Heinlein can be fun and so is Terry Pratchett if you skim. I do a lot of nonfiction as well.

Playwrights: Ibsen, Chekhov, George Bernard Shaw, Jean Anouilh (the rose plays)

Who are your favorite performers?
Michelle Pfeiffer; Judi Dench; Bob Hoskins; Matthew Broderick; John and Joan Cusack.; Uma Thurman; Vincent Price; Annie Lennox; David Bowie; Gary Numan; Weird Al Yankovic; Diana Rigg; Richard O'Brien; Gene Wilder; Madeline Kahn; Johnny Depp; Cary Elwes; Val Kilmer; Catherine Deneuve; Marlene Dietrich; Katherine Hepburn; Emma Thompson; Maggie Smith

Other people I admire:
Susan B. Anthony. Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Thomas Jefferson. Benjamin Franklin. Gandhi. Margaret Sanger. Sarah Weddington. Mary Wollstonecraft. Olympe de Gouges. Virginia Woodhull. Galileo. Giordano Bruno. Giles Corey. Joan of Arc. Christine de Pisan.

Language. Foreign language. Reading/books. Intelligent conversation. (Dark) chocolate. Ancient Egypt. Rocky Horror. Costuming. Research. Vegetarian cookery.

Sloppy thinking/ intellectual laziness. Early mornings. Restaurants and stores that blare TV at innocent patrons. Reality television.

A little bit about me...
I work as an engineer but double majored in French. I'm from Nebraska.

What is the craziest / stupidest thing you've ever done?
I think not.

What is your fondest memory about Rocky?
There have been a lot. Being recognized for the hard work the Crazed Imaginations staff and I put into documenting the Rocky scene and history.

People who knew me in High School thought I was...
dull except when I wasn't.

If they were making a movie about my life I would like to see my part played by...
...I have no clever response to this.

One thing I think that you should think too.
Sorry; not going there.

You can quote me.
An it harm none, do as thou wilt.
