Lies, damned lies, and surveys

The random function strikes again, leading me to Colorgenics.


I believe it to a scary degree, even though it should surely be bunk

That damned survey *g*

(1) Colorgenics bollocks

You have always been on the move seeking affectionate, satisfying and harmonious relationships. Your ultimate goal has been the realisation of an intimate union in which there could be love, self-sacrifice and mutual trust. It has often been said that "True love is just around the corner"...and maybe... if you haven't found it as yet - you possibly soon will.
You are working extremely hard trying to improve your image. You need for those people in positions that matter to recognise your potential and to acknowledge you.
Matters are not progressing as well as you would have hoped and you are having to make concessions but you still believe that your goals are realistic - it's just that people can't seem to see your point of view. You know what you want but you'll only accept suggestions under duress.
As of late, you have been experiencing untold stress .. and this is a result of continuous frustration ... You haven't been taking care of all your physical needs... and it's beginning to show. It would seem that you have a need to find someone to whom you can really relate ... someone perhaps whose standards are as high as your own. You want to be different .... to be individualistic ... to stand out from the common herd. Your inherent control of your sensual instincts is restricting your ability to give yourself to open up freely.... but this, being on your own, this being lonely ..often makes you feel the need to give up some of your strict standards to surrender to the general flow - to be like everyone else; a part of the herd. Deep down you regard such instincts as weaknesses to be overcome. You would like to be loved or admired for yourself alone. You demand recognition and tender loving care.
You have so many ideas that you would like to revitalise but you need to realise a stable and peaceful condition to do so. Once you can free yourself from all the aggravation and tension around you, you will make strides that may amaze you. You will not be prevented from achieving all the things you so desire..

TRANSLATION: You are wet as the Norfolk broads and should belt the fuck up. Also work harder, you lazy cow *g*

I should have had the courage of my convictions and gone for the characters. In which case I would have listed Giles, Crichton, Tim Bayliss, and Indiana Jones. *g*

And *Blackadder reruns!* Oh, sigh. I want some of them.

I've been to Loligo's LJ and I was wrong. Swap out Bayliss and Indy for Peter Wimsey and Methos. Hummina hummina. But I still think I'd do Ed Harris. But wait! Where's Francis Crawford in this? Argh. I only get 4?

With you both on the actor vs. character debate. But for the record, mine was based as much on what I know of the actors as it was on the characters they've played. That and just plain lust, of course. ;)

A couple of years ago, I went to the live version of this where they showed the film and had Philip Glass conducting his band in person instead of playing the soundtrack. It was incredible.

Re: Koyaanisqatsi
I am deeply envious. I saw the film on Channel 4 once but I imagine it would be an awesome thing (in the original sense of the word) to hear the rumbling of that glorious music live.
