Crazy Eights

Metalmom tagged me and I obey. I had nothing to post anyway - I've been too busy to think of anything but databases, and some may think I’ve already posted too many pictures of hot Japanese women (as if that’s possible).

8 things I’m passionate about – books (mostly fiction), writing (mostly checks), death, Japan, extreme movies, heavy metal music, recycling, and hot Asian women (preferably 日本の兎).

8 things I want to do before I die – hot Asian women, learn Japanese (日本語), get another story published, blow up a packed church (I’ve got my eye on a local group of Scientologists), visit Japan, patent my invention the FlameSaw™, get laid without paying for it, and become immortal.

8 things I often say –
Logically, I should do the same to you.
Kill everyone in the name of Satan. (sung to the tune of Skip to my Lou)(you think I’m kidding)
You’re going to burn in Hell…so, let’s dance!
Yeah, that’s right, I farted – and I’ll do it again.
You’re doomed…doomed…definitely…doomed.
日本の兎は セクスを しませんか。

8 books I’ve read recently
Hearts in Atlantis – Stephen King (read it)
The Children's Story (but Not Just for Children) – James Clavell (read it)
Black Hawk Down – some guy (skip it)
Tarzan of the Apes – Edgar Rice Burroughs
HP VII – Rowling
Freaky Deaky – Elmore Leonard
Trail of the Spanish Bit – Don Coldsmith (yeah, I read Westerns)
The Quantum Rose – Catherine Asaro (yeah, I read romance)

8 Songs I Could Listen to Over and Over
Love to Hate – Slayer
God Send Death – Slayer
Cowboys from Hell – Pantera
Sex. Murder. Art – Slayer
Battery – Metallica
O Holy Night – Nat King Cole
Angel of Death – Slayer
Return to Oz – The Scissor Sisters

8 things that attract me to my best friends – their inability to grok my creepy vibe™, my evility, and my super ability to pick up a check. Nothing else – most people revile me on site.

8 people I think should do Crazy 8s – I don’t tag, but if you want a meme, knock yourself out. At least it’s nice and short. What’s with all the 50+ meme questions these days anyway?

You scare me!!!! No shit you scare me but you make me laugh. Remind me never to get on your bad side.

Speaking of which you like to write checks? I have a few you could write for me, you can sing your song in the process!!!! AS long as I get the check.

Love the song list and then there was Nat King Cole. At least you like a little spontaneity here and there.

Do another meme!!!!!

Sex.Murder.Art and Battery-RAWK!!!

I knew I liked you for some reason!And our book choices are kinda eerie! Thanks for playing and as a consolation prize, you'll be receiving a year's supply of Turtle Wax!

You know I've always been amazed at the fact that Slayer has never covered any Nat King Cole songs.

I also notice that you've been awfully busy trademarking things lately. Well done.

"become immortal"

And here I thought we didn't have that much in common. I want to become immortal too. ;)

Hearts in Atlantis was a terrific book...ever catch the movie? They never come across well (or so it seems to me.

They're saying Stephen King's "Duma Key" is a great book. Can't wait to get that one.

SSC said...

Okay I memorized this post, time to get a new one. Perhaps how you stole puppies from a little girl or robbed a boy of his lunch money.

I am waiting!

grant: I just bought Stephen King's On Writing and can't wait until it comes through the mail. I hear it has hot Asian chicks in it. Or at least I think it does.

グラント said...

ssc - I sorta meme'd today.

metalmom - but I don't own any turtles.

joe - it's time the rest of the world stopped getting rich off my inventions.

pq - they really dropped the ball with the movie. It wasn't even based on the titular story.

ssc (again) - I hear and obey.

leesa - I had to draw the Asian chicks in my copy, but it's still an excellent book. As he says, he keeps the BS down to a minimum.

Richard has been to Japan and says you'll love it there. He enjoyed his visit. You should check out the Banana Show.

Ooh Ooh can I be there when you blow up a $cientology church?
You fascinate me Grant. Truly you do.
