5 things

Pernell has tagged me: 5 things you probably don’t know about me.

1. My brother Mark died at birth. I never met him and I’ve missed him more and more in the last few years. I find that a bit wierd.

2. I used to love marmalade as a kid. I used to spread marmalade on every one of my pieces of toast and school lunch sandwiches. Then suddenly one day I hated marmalade and didn’t touch it for years.

3. My favourite books growing up were Biggles books. As a kid I was intrigued by the fact that Biggles never seemed to go to the toilet.

4. I stand responsible for my younger brother badly burning his feet. I managed to con him into running across the smouldering ashes of a bonfire. Half way across he just started screaming.

5. My favourite movie is Jesus of Montreal. I love the musical score and the urban landscapes.

And I tag Tash McGill, Laura Drane, Darren Wright, Steve Garner, Fernando Gros.

  2. I think this is cool. We are a global village! I live 2 hours from Montreal (point number 5). I also found the film Jesus of Montreal fascinating. It suggests, in subtle ways, how Quebec (a Province in Canada) is more postmodern than the rest of the country. Check out other movies made by the same director, Denys Arcand.

  3. Michel,
    thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. much appreciated. i am fascinated in your comment that “Jesus of Montreal .. suggests, in subtle ways, how Quebec is more postmodern than the rest of the country.” Can you tell me some more about this? is it important for Quebec to define itself as more postmodern? or is it your reading of the film.

    love to talk more
