Name a CD you own that you think no-one else on your friendslist does:

La Belle et la Bete, an opera by Philip Glass that's intended also to act as a soundtrack to Cocteau's film of the same name.

Name a book you own that you think no-one else on your friendslist does:

The Happy Valley by Eric Berne. Yes, THAT Eric Berne (who wrote I'm OK, You're OK). It's a very strange children's book.

Name a movie you own on DVD/VHS/whatever that you think no-one else on your friendslist does:

Ofelas (Pathfinder), a Norwegian film in the Saami language

Name a place that you have visited that you think no-one else on your friendslist has:

Grosse Pointe Yacht Club on Lakeshore Road in Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan

Name a piece of technology or any sort of tool you own that you think no-one else on your friendslist has:

A working Mac Classic from the 1990-92 time frame

I'm sure I've been to the outside of the Yacht Club, though probably not inside.

Ditto. I think it's funny that you've gotten 3 hits on the Yacht Club!

So you're from that area of Michigan, too?

Lived in GPW until I was 16, would have been class of '74 at North if we hadn't moved. My house was at 1000 Vernier, not quite across from the golf course. Where were you?

In Grosse Pointe Park. We used to go to GPW to the Amvet Post there--my dad was involved in that. And he grew up in Grosse Pointe Shores.

Wow, that was SO long ago!!!

I went to GPUS which became University Liggett, class of 79.

I should have said "The high-dive board for the pool of the..." :-P

My folks didn't belong to the Yacht club but I occasionally went to a kids birthday party there. The high-dive board is what I remember the most.

Oh! Oh! I've been to the Yacht club!

I dated a guy whose family were members once.

What do I win?

*sympathy* :-)

(I hated growing up in Grosse Pointe. Your Grosse Pointe mileage may vary.)

I liked it okay as a kid, but having been back there as an adult... I'd never want to live there again. I'm too used to having real civilization nearby. I think if I were to move back to MI now, I'd end up in Ann Arbor.

Ha! I own La Belle and La Bete. (I think I might also own the Cocteau film.)

Yay!

Me too. I would figure more people own the Cocteau film than the Glass opera.

I haven't tried to do them both at once. Have to try that sometime. (Hm, I wonder if there's a DVD that has the Glass opera as an alternative sound track.)

Re: La Belle and La Bete - I don't have the CD, but I have a t-shirt, because I went to a live performance.

I had a 1990 Mac Classic until just a few years ago. But alas, it has gone to the great computer store in the sky.

I'm ignoring "neener, neener" to post this.

I had, and may still have Pathfinder.

Woo hoo! I think it's a great movie.

We own an even older Mac which would work if it were put together, but it isn't. I think. (Jordin has the one that Susan got as a member of the design team, so yeah, really old Mac)

I kept kicking myself for having sold my original 128K Mac, so the OH got this for me as a replacement.
