Ok... I can't do that. I just typed up an entire page of favorite songs but I'm not going to put that on here. It is impossible for me to choose... so many amazing bands... so many amazing songs. It just can't be done. :/

What is your favorite poem?

I'll answer as you did, there's simply so many of them, it would be crime to name just one. A few that I really, really like:

Hristo Botev's "Hadzi Dimitar" (only a part of it is listed)

"He,who falls while fighting to be free
can never die: for him the sky
and earth,the trees and beasts shall keen,
to him the minstrel's song shall rise..."

Nikola Vaptsarov's "On Parting"

To my wife
Sometimes I’ll come when you’re asleep,
An unexpected visitor.
Don’t leave me outside in the street,
Don’t bar the door!

I’ll enter quietly, softly sit
And gaze upon you in the dark.
Then, when my eyes have gazed their fill,
I’ll kiss you and depart.

* * *

The fight is hard and pitiless.
The fight is epic, as they say.
I fell. Another takes my place –
Why single out a name?

After the firing squad – the worms.
Thus does the simple logic go.
But in the storm, we’ll be with you,
My people, for we loved you so.

Of course, they sound much better in Bulgarian (my native language, but these were the translations I found).


Pushkin's Exegi Monumentum is also another favourite of mine and like the ones above - it sounds much better in Russian.

I have erected a monument to myself
Not built by hands; the track of it, though trodden
By the people, shall not become overgrown,
And it stands higher than Alexander's column.

I shall not wholly die. In my sacred lyre
My soul shall outlive my dust and escape corruption--
And I shall be famed so long as underneath
The moon a single poet remains alive.

I shall be noised abroad through all great Russia,
Her innumerable tongues shall speak my name:
The tongue of the Slavs' proud grandson, the Finn, and now
The wild Tungus and Kalmyk, the steppes' friend.

In centuries to come I shall be loved by the people
For having awakened noble thoughts with my lyre,
For having glorified freedom in my harsh age
And called for mercy towards the fallen.

Be attentive, Muse, to the commandments of God;
Fearing no insult, asking for no crown,
Receive with indifference both flattery and slander,
And do not argue with a fool.

I'll ask the same question, again - because I want to know what other people's favourites are. So yeah, what's your favourite poem?

Don't have one, unless I could use work of my own, but then: you guys can't read Dutch, so: don't have one.

I don't know-- I pretty much don't retain movies after I see them. There are even more so fleeting than a book could be. Pretty much only remember a few movies and then disney movies and then pixar movies. That's about it in my memory banks for the movie category.

Least favorite genre?

As in video games? Then the answer is RPG, without a doubt. I hardly play any other genre.

In my opinion, that will have to be Stephanie Meyer. I've only read four of her books ((the ever-popular Twilight series)), and I have to say that she really isn't that good. I think girls like her so much because it gives a sort of "safe" idea for sexual fantasies, but her writing is sub-par, and she didn't execute her ideas for the books well enough.

What is your favorite thing about yourself?

How funny is this! I just talked about guilty pleasure in your movie thread! Hahaha.

Well, I have to say that's "Goede Tijden, Slechte Tijden" a Dutch soap, very, very, very VERY bad, but I enjoy myself so much watching that soap... Oh my god, the script of that soap is so horribly poor that it makes me laugh like almost all the time. Like there was scene between to characters, Maxime and Nick and it went like:

Nick: 'I hate you, you took away everything from me! I have nothing left! You destroyed my entire life!'
Maxime: 'No Nick, you know that isn't true. You still have your good mood left!'

Oh my god, I was lying under the table because I died laughing.

Would you say you're the most important person in your life or does your life revolve around the lifes of other persons?

I don't remember it; most of my early social life was so awkward, annoying and horrifyingly stupid I prefer not to think about it. My home life was atrociously boring and same-y, so I don't remember much of it either. So my first memory right now is the three hours I just spent shovelling.

What is the first roleplay you remember joining? Or, if memory does not suffice, what is your favorite roleplay of all time?

Sadly, my first role playing experience was also my first time on mIRC, and I was grounded for it.

I was ten, and my mom let me roam free in the kid's channel, and I met this boy there. He was nice, and we decided to be boyfriend/girlfriend. Anyway, we were role playing ((before I knew what it was called)) a picnic, and we were eating ice cream.

Well, my mother came to check on my progress, and I was embarrassed about having a new boyfriend, so I covered the screen with my hand. Automatically, she assumed that I was doing something bad - which I wasn't. However, once she removed my hand, we both realized he had posted something... That something was... not the innocent picnic I had been doing before that, and it was gross to me at the time.

He wrote that he dropped ice cream down my shirt, and asked if he should lick it off...

My mom didn't believe me that I wasn't covering the screen because I was embarrassed. She thought I was trying to cyber with this boy. I was grounded because of it, and I decided I didn't really want him for a boyfriend after all.

Stupid perverts...

I accidentally made a terrorist threat against my school. In the seventh grade. I was in my health class and people were asking what I would do with $100,000. I was thinking that I would have the school (save the library) demolished and make way for another attraction. However, it came out as "I'd blow up the school". I got to hang out with the school principal, got suspended for the rest of the day and pretty much mortified everyone. That is one reason why I prefer to forget my childhood.

Name someone who changed your life. Can be a famous person, a friend, family member, etc. etc. etc...

Probably the dvd of The Shining, because later on I found out I still had the receipt of the other The Shining I bought and wanted to return to get another... In the end it cost me 20 euros, while I could've saved me 13.

Best gift ever received?

Assuming my family was safe, I would likely grab my computer, or at least the external harddrive.

Earthquakes. Yes I'm from Cali and yes I'm use to them. But mother fuckers can really ruin your day without warning. Hurricanes they give you fair warning.

Middle Earth. I'd love to live in Rohan, but I wouldn't mind visiting Rivendell...

What is one thing that you currently pay for that you could probably do without, and why do you continue paying for it? (If you don't pay bills, you can use your parents or guardians or whoever is paying the bills).
