Good Omens
I'm dodging this one and stating a preference for British humor.
Harpo.
Hm. Keaton, although I admit a lack of him in my actual experience.
Punk. Punk. Punk. Not classic. Punk.
Marx Marvelous...the google results indicate this comes from a book I'd like to read, I couldn't find anything definitive on Bernard Wrangle.
I don't know, and this lack of knowledge has not kept me from living a pretty good life.
Pretty good, although I didn't get to host a crazy musician.


Or were you looking for more questions? I'd probably ask for a favorite game, game-writer, or game system. Possibly: rpg or first-person shooter, and how has their preference affected their social life?

What is your favorite book? Been Down So Long It Looks Like Up to Me by Richard Farina

Who is your favorite author? Living: Joe Lansdale. Dead: Gerald Kersh or Tom Disch.

Who is your favorite Marx Brother? Um - Lemmo

Keaton or Chaplin? Chaplin, because he wrote "Solidarity Forever." What? You didn't mean Ralph?

Punk Rock or Classic Rock? I prefer my chairs to remain stationary.

Marx Marvelous or Bernard Wrangle? No answer.

Is it true that if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce
they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does? "All statements are true in some sense, false in some sense, meaningless in some sense, true and false in some sense, true and meaningless in some sense, false and meaningless in some sense, and true and false and meaningless in some sense."

How was your weekend? I picked up my new glasses, got a haircut, nailed up a few dozen pictures on walls, sorted through eight boxes of random papers, walked in a flood and got my socks all wet, did some shopping, worked out on my exercycle, followed my diet, made a hotel reservation for Confluence, cleaned some floors, framed some photos I haven't hung up yet, found 3 autographed photos of Utah Phillips I had forgotten I even had, reshelved my library of music and folklore books, did laundry - in short, fairly boring.

Favorite book or favorite author? Blimey! Can you narrow it down a tad? I have dozens of favorites, one at least for each genre I read, and it can change in an hour if I find something I really like!

Favorite Marx Brother? Uh...who or what are the Marx Brothers? *glyph of puzzlement*

Keaton or Chaplin? Keaton, no question! Chaplin started taking himself much too seriously early on, and I have a low tolerance for Stalin-smoochers.

Punk or Classic Rock? Classic rock, absolutely no doubt about it! I grew up listening to that stuff.

Marx Marvelous or Bernard Wrangle? Say wha'?

You don't know who the Marx Brothers were?

That's pathetic.

*Heh-heh* I figured that'd get a rise out of you. I know that they were comedians Back In The Day, but I don't think I've ever seen any of their stuff. ISTR one of them, Groucho, went on to host a TV show.

What is your favorite book? Either Space Oddysey 2001 by Arthur C. Clarke or The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy

Who is your favorite author? Plato

Who is your favorite Marx Brother? I have seen very little of the Marx Brothers, but I rather admire Harpo as a musician.

Keaton or Chaplin? Chaplin

Punk Rock or Classic Rock? Punk Rock, Classic Rock has yet to produce an equal to the Poison Girls.

Marx Marvelous or Bernard Wrangle? Mary McPherson

Is it true that if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce
they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does? I don't know, but the last time I had prunes, they game me the runes; do you know how much skill it takes to pass a rune?

How was your weekend? Normally I would say "Pretty good, I guess", but on last night's Revenge, DJ Particle referred to me as "A staple of MarsCon". So all-in-all, I'd say it's been a pretty good weekend

What is your favorite book? Hmmm ... hard one. If you measure simply by the number of times it's been reread it would have to be Starship Troopers, Macroscope by Piers Anthony or Inferno by Niven/Pournelle

Who is your favorite author? I have no idea. Going by number of books owned by the author it would be Lester Dent for all the Doc Savage novels.

Who is your favorite Marx Brother? For sheer smart-assery, Groucho. I luvs me a smartass. Too bad I don't know any in real life ...

Keaton or Chaplin? Keaton

Punk Rock or Classic Rock? Do you have to ask? Classic Rock

Marx Marvelous or Bernard Wrangle? Never really read any Tom Robbins - had to look that one up - and I don't know who Wrangle is, that I recall.

Is it true that if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce
they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does? Well not much could taste WORSE than rhubarb ... or cranberries for that matter. Can I have strawberries instead? Pleeze??? :)

How was your weekend? Well it sorta sucked actually. Wanted to go to the local Taste of Lombard for the 4th ... rained. Wanted to go listen to ao band at the town's 4th party ... rained. Was gonna go listen to S00j ... that fell thru. But I washed lots of dishes, cleaned the kitchen and laid around like a lump so there's that. Oh and I found a site for free backing tracks so I spent my free time learning some songs. They had a bunch of Boston and REO on there! Score!!

And you don't want me to sing. I can't get rid of this stupid cold. I hope it's gone by Confluence or This Island Earth ain't happening ...

Not bad. Two Independence Day barbecues, a poker game in which I didn't lose TOO much, a fair amount of naptime.
