Friday 5 for January 19: Random topic generator

 From Scrivener's Friday 5 blog, here are the questions and answers nearly a week late.

1. How much experience do you have with tobacco?

Personally ZERO - and all instances that I ran into damn tobacco smoke have been NEGATIVE. Stinky. Awful. Foul. Why burn good money on this crap????

2. What have you made with wood?

When I was in middle school I made a wooden napkin holder and doorstop for woodshop class. I have a picture of those somewhere... can't find it now.

3. What do you think of farmers markets in your area?

I rarely go, though when I do go I like looking around and buying some fresh veggies and fruit. Some of these markets also sell too many non-farm produced trinkets which I never buy.

4. What’s a good movie, novel, or TV show containing a shipwreck?

While the fictional love story is basically crap, the re-creation of the sinking of the Titanic is great... Gotta love the special effects of that sinking in the movie.

Other great shipwreck movies:

  • The Poseidon Adventure (1972)
  • Mysterious Island (1961)
  • The Final Countdown (1980) - what if a massive shipwreck event could be prevented....

And the ultimate shipwreck TV series.... Gilligan's Island... a silly but classic TV show of all time.

5. What’s a good song with the word magic in its title or lyrics?

Here are a few quick titles...

  • Magical Mystery Tour - The Beatles
  • Magic - The Cars
  • You Can Do Magic - America
  • Magic - Olivia Newton John
  • Magic's In the Dancing - Lighthouse
  • Black Magic Woman - Fleetwood Mac; famously covered by Santana
