1. What kind of art are you into?
A: Everything! Music, dance, plays, operas, paintings, films, photography… You name it, I’ll ‘ve more than happy to go check it out or take a class on it..ha!
I always thought art to be an expression and extension of the artist, so it really shouldn’t and doesn’t matter what form it comes in.
It is the celebration of the spirit and inspiration behind the work produced that truly matters.
Art is and should be more than just a label, it is about the human spirit.
And in my most humble opinion, the human spirit cannot be explained or contained with mere labels.
2. Would you say you are in love with yourself?
A: of course darling, of course! If one does not first learn to love oneself, how will one ever learn to love others??
I’m not saying we go the whole way and do the whole narcissistic thing ala Emperor Caligula but love yourself enough to treat yourself with respect and to take good care of yourself.
Everything starts from within, if you have nothing inside, what do you have to give?
But we all know that ain’t going to happen.
So lets be practical.. I cant think of anything that I’ll wanna change about me self really because I wouldn’t be me anymore if I did change right?
Now where’s the fun in that??
4. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
A: This has to be my favourite question of the list!!
I fell in love with Morocco when I was 5 watching Lawrence of Arabia (dont ask.. That’s another long story..)
and then Austria/Salzburg (and Christopher Plummer..hehe) when I was watching The Sound of Music.
and eventually with Rome at age 8 after watching Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday (how can anyone not love that film??).
So if I had to pick a place anywhere in the world to live it would a tough call amongst the 4 locations above!
Morocco has been a favourite so let’s leave that out but Turkey, oh Turkey!
I’m in love with that place. The people are amazing, the culture is amazing and there’s just something incredibly, intangible-ly lovable about that place.
It has an indescribable charm that not many places have. Not to mention the incredible amount of quality museums, ancient city, cultural and world heritage sites that are there.. The thought of it sends good shivers down my spine..
Oh did I mention Istanbul also has a really awesome cultural festival that runs practically for the whole year??
Sigh.. I miss that place already.
5. List 5 of your favorite movies, and why you love them.
A: This is as good as asking me which limp would I rather lose – my arms or my legs…(-_-)”
So..! I’m gonna cheat and say that aside from the movies mentioned above, my top 5 favourite movies are..
1. Children of Men
One of the most brilliant films made about a dystopian society in the near future, where women have stopped giving birth for good. Realistically scary.
4. All Indiana Jones movies
I’m kinda cheating here but it’s Indiana Jones!!
I fell in love with antiques and archeology because of Indie!!
5. All Fast and Furious movies
Yes…I know it’s kinda trashy but all those cars! All those beautiful, sexy, orgasmic looking cars..!
6. If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
A: I want the power to read people’s minds and fly?
Power to read another person’s mind because people dont speak their minds anymore!
I think it’s awfully tiring to have to constantly guess whats on the other parties’ mind.
7. What would your ideal holiday be like?
I love beach holidays but let’s be honest, I’d probably be sick of it after 2days..
I’d much rather be backpacking through antique cities and ancient sites really.
Oh oh oh.. I’ve just figured what would be my ideal holiday..
It’ll be even better if it’s fully paid for.. 😉
8. Do you believe in any faith/religion?
A: I have no religion. I believe religions were created by men to explain things they couldn’t explain naturally and as someone or somebody to turn to when they are scared or need someone to blame.
While I have nothing against religions or religious people, religion to me, is another way for those in power to control others.
I respect your choice and the god(s) you believe in so please allow me my right to observe and not participate.
But I do believe in faith.
I have faith in humanity and the inert need and desire to be good and do good. I intend to hang on to that faith for as long as I’m alive.
I mean no harm or ill intent, please do not take offense at my beliefs.
9. What was your favourite subject in school?
A: Music, history and language! I recently did Philosophy and Gender Issues, and I think they are pretty awesome too!
Yeah… I like topics that require me to argue with myself. I’m a nerd..
