1. What do you think of space? Do you think we should explore it, or stay here on Earth and tend to matters here?
Definetly explore it. No question about it. (Because it’s there!)
2. If you could travel anywhere off Earth, where would you go? Why?
Assuming I’m on a tour of sorts I would assume Saturn would offer a bit of choices for this solar system. If I have no restrictions it’d probably be to see a black hole (up close of course).
3. Do you think we’re doing enough to facilitate science? Why/why not? What would you do to change things?
Not a chance. We need more budget for NASA and for the private developers.
Bonus Question for Comments: What are some of your favorite movies about space/take place in space/etc?
All the ones that come to mind are kids movies: Explorers, The Last Star Fighter, Flight of the Navigator (of course). I’m sure there are more but not coming to mind right now.

What are your Top 5, all time favorite movies?

  • Flight of the Navigator: An unknown Disney movie. But one of the best.
  • The American President: Aaron Sorkin before Sport’s Night and before The West Wing.
  • The Cutting Edge: D.B. Sweeney as a hockey player who gets an injury. While it stops him from playing hockey, it doesn’t stop him from skating.
  • Ever After – A Cinderella Story: Drew Barrymore as a Cinderella-ish “character”
  • A Christmas Story: Be careful, or you’ll shoot your eye out!!!

    From Top 5 Friday

    I sent out my Burn It CDs late (but it was more than a few days ago, so if you didn’t get yours it’ll be there any minute) the theme was songs from movies. I was in two BurnIt groups (so I had six people sending CDs to me (actually I only had packages from five of them) and I had to send to the six of them and the coordinator.

    I was nervous at first Alfie sent hers’ out way early and the packaging was beautiful. Great cover, printed CD, artwork for the back and inside (behind the CD). Even her printing on the envelope was great. Very professional and I don’t think it’s related to her major. She set the bar very high, the rest had some nice ones and some plain ones so I was feeling better for mine. Mine might have been in 2nd place for looks but I was still left in her dust.

    I do have one complaint about iTunes, until you burn you don’t know how long your disc is, I mean who measures time by saying 1.1 hours?!?

    Some were songs I liked, some were artists and some were movies I liked that I wanted a song from. It was hard since some of the movies just have a great sound track (Some Kind of Wonderful, The Lost Boys, Pretty in Pink, Boys on the Side, Bill and Ted’s, City of Angels, etc.) Here’s the track listing if you’re curious.

    1 Oh Yeah Yello Ferris Buehler’s Day Off
    2 Extraordinary Liz Phair Raising Helen
    3 Kids in America Kim Wilde Clueless
    4 Uninvited Alanis Morissette City Of Angels
    5 Turn To The Sky March Violets Some Kind Of Wonderful
    6 Do Wot You Do INXS Pretty In Pink
    7 Do Anything Pete Shelley Some Kind Of Wonderful
    8 I Can’t Break Away Big Pig Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure
    9 Shell-Shock New Order Pretty In Pink
    10 Iris Goo Goo Dolls City Of Angels
    11 Good Times INXS & Jimmy Barnes The Lost Boys
    12 I Still Believe Tim Cappello The Lost Boys
    13 Summer Kisses, Winter Tears Julee Cruise Until The End Of The World
    14 Turn To The Sky March Violets Some Kind Of Wonderful
    15 Losing My Religion Tori Amos Higher Learning
    16 Why Can’t I? Liz Phair 13 Going on 30

    1. What is the coolest movie gadget / prop you’d like to have in real life?
    The prop works!?! Just like in the movie?!? All sorts of sci-fi gizmos, gadgetry and starships flash before my eyes. Let’s be more practical… Maybe a Stepford Wife? The DeLorean from Back to the Future? A magic lamp with three wishes? Oh! I know! The gizmo Arnold and Danny used to make Arnold have a baby in Junior. Or I guess I could just use the lamp…
    2. What movie has your favorite / most passionate kiss scene?
    All I can keep thinking of is the scene from that thing you do When Faye (Liv Tyler) says, somekind

    I have wasted thousands and thousands of kisses on you–kisses that I thought were special because of your lips and your smile and all your color and life. I used to think that was the real you, when you smiled. But now I know you don’t mean any of it. You just save it for all your songs. Shame on me for kissing you with my eyes closed so tight.

    But that’s really kind of a non-kissing scene. Maybe when Craig Stoltz finally kisses the Mary Stuart Masterson character (Watts) in Some Kind of Wonderful. (I need to think a little more on this one.) The first time Max kisses Liz on Roswell (but that’s not a movie…)

    3. What movie had the most impact on how you view life and why?
    flightnavI’ll give two answers.

    1. Flight of the Navigator (the best Disney movie ever, which finally just came out on DVD last week): Because it always makes me feel like a little kid. Every time I’ve seen it. and that’s worth something.
    2. Sabrina (the remake): I’ve always wanted to go to Paris after I saw that movie I kept thinking about it and a day (or two) later I realized “hey! I can go to Paris”, so I signed up for a French class and realized if I really wanted to do it I could, it really changed my perspective on things.

    From Wednesday Matinee.

    FYI, I never made it to Paris, got fed up learning the language, went to Prague instead. I’ve been to Costa Rica twice and England since, but still no Paris…

    Here’s my 100 things about me page. (If you’re looking for my 101 in 1001 days list go here.) To follow the theme that I’ve found on many other sites, partially to see what I come up with and to let others see what I come up with. I’ve broken this down a bit: I like, I dislike, I am, I’ve live in, I wish I understood more about, places I’ve been and before I die…

    These are all the DVDs I own, many are music. I’m not a big movie collector but I’ve picked up a few here and there. Most of the movies were really good deals (many were under $10, if not $8) even with shipping but they still show my taste(?). I should have slightly editied since there were a few (Analyze This, The Mask) that I wouldn’t have bought but came free with a player. SO click on the icon to check them out.

    FYI – ‘Flight of the Navigator’ is the best movie every (and it’s by Disney). ‘A Christmas Story’ is great too, I’m not sure why it isn’t in the list?!?
