Author Comments: 

Here are five works of art from five genres. These are not my favorite works, but the ones that best explain who I am and/or how I see life.

Thank you for sharing yourself with us.

I'm so shy...

I'd love to see some clones for this pop up!

Shalom, y'all!

I'd have a really tough time populating a list such as this one.

Ah, but nothing worth having comes without some kind of fight, or at least that's what Bruce Cockburn told me...

I'd love to see the results if you ever give it a pop!

Shalom, y'all!

Gotta kick at the darkness till it bleeds daylight.

Sorry, I know that was off-topic. I just love that song.

As do I, and I am always a little sad that only Canadians seem to know who Cockburn is... :(

(Although as far as I know, you recognize the lines from the Barenaked Ladies' remake...)

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Ah, you picked that up, did you? I do like Bruce Cockburn, but I was a Barenaked Ladies fan before I ever discovered his music.

Only because I ran into the same situation with AJ a few years ago... :)

Shalom, y'all!

With the exception of Andrei Rublev, all of your films are intelligent or off-kilter love stories--should I read into that?

Johnny Waco (who loves reading into things)

Indeed, you should, although I didn't even think about that when adding most of them. Amateur and Harold and Maude earned inclusion more for their skewed view of the world than for their romantic content. Still, the subtext is always subtle, eh?

Shalom, y'all!

Here I feel you have started sth. (= a great idea) that will be followed by many, many clones.

I hope so. I'd love to see clones of this. It is an odd but interesting insight into people.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

After months of more or less intense reflections, I finally managed to put up my clone.

Any other clones?

The paintings part of this list is a great idea. (You have to admit, the other topics get plenty of attention elsewhere at TL.) Sorry I didn't notice it before.

I'm going to copycat clone that part.

As if I don't have enough projects pending.
