Proust Lite: Part Deux

This time, Jim McCarthy takes a crack at the Proust questionnaire.

* What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?

Boredom.

* What is your idea of earthly happiness?

A banana chocolate chip muffin, a liter of Diet Coke, a good book, and the time to take a nap.

* Who are your favorite heroes of fiction?

Milkman in SONG OF SOLOMON. John Ames in GILEAD. The perhaps anti-heroic Madame Bovary. THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME. And Billy Pilgrim. Poo-tee-weet.

* Who are your favorite characters in history?

Serial killers and egomaniacs are always interesting (and sometimes are one and the same). Elizabeth Bathory. Pope Joan. The Son of Sam. William Randolph Hearst.

* Your favorite painter?

Van Gogh (trite but true).

* Your favorite musician?

Ella Fitzgerald’s voice transcends time.

* Who would you have liked to be?

Andy Warhol. Other than that part where he got shot.

    Add some sour patch kids, a snuggly puppy and a sunny hammock, and that’s my idea of earthly happiness too.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I am all about van Gogh, too!

    But, Andy Warhol. Every depiction I’ve seen in films alarms me very much–even when he isn’t being shot.

    Simply desire to say your article is as surprising. The clarity in your put up is simply great and that i can assume you’re an expert on this subject. Fine together with your permission allow me to clutch your RSS feed to stay updated with forthcoming post. Thanks one million and please carry on the gratifying work.

  4. Mate, as someone who regularly gawps at beautiful Eva, I can tell you thats definitely not her. Eva looks hot in anything including that god awful bubble wrap jacket. I wish we could put her on Finest Five.

  5. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
