A book you own that no one on your friends list does:
Various technical manuals aside, this is a hard one to answer.
Mayyyyyybe John Gregory Betancourt's The Dawn of Amber, set in Roger Zelazny's Amber multiverse.

A CD you own that no one on your friends list does:
Umm, maybe Glen Danzig's Black Aria.
Or Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds.
Sadly, I can't claim Vatic[A.N.]'s Infocalypse, because tugrik has that.

A DVD/VHS tape you own that no one on your friends list does:
A recording of a video segment of the old PBS show Videolog, where they visited my tiny home town. Err, no wait, my mom has that.
Umm, I have an old DVD of an anime called A Wind Called Amnesia.

A place you've been that no one on your friends list has been:
Up a small cavity inside the underground Corkscrew mine in Death Valley, collecting Colemanite.

Good choice in books, my friend .. been ages since I read any of the books in that multiverse. ^^

Was it a decent example of Colemanite ?

Indeed, I recall many fine smokey colored specimens, sold for years after.

Luckily for my skin, these were tiny crystalled, and merely scratched, instead of slicing me open like a roomful of razorblades.

Black Aria was one of the three CDs I had on continuous play while writing my second novel. :)

Because I'm bored...

  • A book you own that no one on your friends list does:

    For fiction, no idea. Possibly the Myth series, by Robert Asprin (I doubt anyone else has the whole set).

    For non-fiction, "Compact Stars", which is a wonderful book.

  • A CD you own that no one on your friends list does:

    Probably a few of the classical ones that have been gathering dust. Or the Jurrasic Park soundtrack.

  • A DVD/VHS tape you own that no one on your friends list does:

    The set of ST:TNG tapes taped off of television when I was much younger. I don't think I _own_ any storebought tapes.

    Must pick up a DVD of "Real Genius" and expose the Thorncliff crowd to it. VHS is buried somewhere.

  • A place you've been that no one on your friends list has been:

    The railroad tracks south of here, mashing coins, more years ago than I want to think about right now.


Hadn't heard of Colemanite until you mentioned it. Looked it up; pretty nifty.

We've got an old beater VHS of "A Wind Called Amnesia." Interesting movie, that.
