3. who do you think is the most annoying person of 2006?

i always feel a bit awkward putting up a wishlist here. because i don't want anyone to feel obligated and it seems like i'm begging for things that i, in most cases, can buy myself. a good friend has convinced me that it isn't. his argument was that if i were poor and in need of food and a roof over my head, the last thing on my mind would be setting up an amazon wishlist..

also, if i don't give you the address, there will always be people asking me for it. the reason for such a list right now, you may ask.. well, tomorrow is my birthday! :D

i deleted everything on the old list, put a few things back and added new stuff that i like, mostly french films. there are no books on this list because i moved those to another place. so without further ado.. here it is! so if you're feeling generous.. just remember, i don't expect a thing, so anything i do get would come as a very nice surprise..

1. what was your favourite music of 2006?

Breaking Benjamin's Phobia. The first time a major label release has topped my music chart since... 1985, I think. 84, maybe.

2. what was your favourite film or tv program of 2006?

I still haven't stumbled across one that would rate. Everyone I know, their mothers, and their mothers' mothers is raving about The Death of Mr. Lazarescu, though. (It's '05, but it got its first American release in '06, I can cheat...)

3. who do you think is the most annoying person of 2006?

The head of the company that bought mine and is dismantling it.

And happy birthday, etc.

Favorite music of 2006: If I had to choose? The Long Blondes. but I only discovered them a couple of weeks ago.
Favorite film: Me and you and everyone we know. Or is that from 2005? Well the DVD came out in 2006, I think.
Favorite TV program: Grey's Anatomy.
Most annoying person: Paris Hilton?

Happy Birthday, Tam.

1. what was your favourite music of 2006?

I have listened to a lot of old music, even the 'new' albums I enjoyed were by old musicians. Johnny Cash and Tom Waits to name but two.

2. what was your favourite film or tv programme of 2006?

I thought Borat was funny, haven't seen many other movies. Tv programmes I watch are mostly BBC, so I have to name Little Britain and Extra's.

3. who do you think is the most annoying person of 2006?

How many can I name? Let's just say that a politician whose surname begins with a 'B' has annoyed me a lot. Which one? Most of them...
Jan. 12th, 2007 12:07 am (UTC)
tom waits.. i've been neglecting him a bit lately. not sure why.. :P

politician. name starts with a 'b'..
hmmm.. the one on the right or the one slightly less on the right? :D

1. what was your favourite music of 2006?

I got hooked on the wackiness that is Gogol Bordello.

2. what was your favourite film or tv programme of 2006?

Speaking of Gogol Bordello, Everything is Illuminated was great, even if a significant reduction from the even more fantastical book. On the ole TV, Everest: Beyond the Limit is my crack. And the stupidly amusing How I Met Your Mother has been my guilty pleasure.

3. who do you think is the most annoying person of 2006?

My illustrious president wins the title yet again. Rumsfeld was in strong contention, but he won back favor points by resigning.
Jan. 12th, 2007 12:56 am (UTC)
everything is illuminated: i haven't seen the film yet, but i've read the book. right after extremely loud and incredibly close..
Jan. 4th, 2007 06:22 pm (UTC)
1. I'm stuck with regard to music... as evidenced from my journal. But I did enjoy the Weird Al songs, the Raconteurs, Beck, and The Killers.

2. It's a toss-up between Lost, My Name is Earl, Doctor Who, and Battlestar Galactica.

3. George Bush and his cronies. The right-wing AM talk show heads. Paris Hilton, Keven Federline, and the other celebrity wanks.
Jan. 12th, 2007 01:16 am (UTC)
battlestar galactica: they've only just started showing that over here. i'm not sure yet if i really like it, i probably need to get used to it a bit more..

a celebrity used to be someone who was good at something, like acting or playing in a band. these days you only have to spend a couple of days in a big brother house or be a contestant on some talent show for a few minutes.. :D
Jan. 4th, 2007 10:43 pm (UTC)
1. the Editors (http://www.editorsofficial.com/)
2. Brothers of the Head (http://www.brothersofthehead.com/splash)
3. anyone who outbids me on eBay ;)
Jan. 12th, 2007 01:35 am (UTC)
i tried to watch that trailer of brothers of the head, but it didn't work. i'll try again later.. is it a british film?

Jan. 12th, 2007 01:52 am (UTC)
panic at the disco.. there's one of their songs on this computer somewhere.. i believe it's called sins not tragedies?

heroes.. i don't know that. what's it about?

3. The 51% of America that supposedly voted for Bush

4. Jim Butcher's Dresdon Files series (book)
Jan. 12th, 2007 02:15 am (UTC)
yes, but you have to get to know everyone personally of that 51% to see if they are annoying in other ways as well. and you we will try to forgive them in time, won't we? :D

ah yes, books. i thought about including them, but then this would have been called tam's four & that doesn't sound that good, does it? perhaps another time..
