Vivre comme dans les livres

Mordi of Blowupdoll passed this book survey along to me, and since my taste in literature often is related to pop culture anyway, I thought it would make sense to post it here.

1) You're stuck inside Fahrenheit 451; which book do you want to be?
Anything by Tom Robbins, Dave Eggers, or Madonna (not that I don't like some of her music).

2) Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?
Yes, although I can't remember many of my book-crushes anymore. Dewey from I Never Loved Your Mind is the kind of boy I would date.

3) What are you currently reading?
Raven--a massive tome about Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple--and Raoul Vaneigem's The Revolution Of Everyday Life.

4) The last book you bought was:
The Sit-In Game (Swedish kids rebelling and taking over a school in 1969), The Preppy Handbook, Diane Von Furstenberg's Book Of Beauty, and The New Art (a collection of essays about pop art, Dada, abstract expressionism, etc.).

5) The last book you read was:
Evasions, the true story of the author's adventures shoplifting and squatting his way across America.

6) Five books you would take to a desert island:
1. Beautiful Losers by Leonard Cohen, possibly the most perversely beautiful novel of all time

2. The Complete Works Of Verner Panton

3. The Dispossessed by Ursula K. LeGuin

4. The Rudi Gernreich Book (Fashion designer of the future)

5. Society Of The Spectacle by Guy Debord

7) Who are you going to pass this stick to, and why?
Maybe The Soundkeeper, or other people on Livejournal (yes, I do have one, and anyone who knows how to work Google can probably find it without much difficulty).

Le Pop Art, C'est La Liberté

Apologies for my absence. Can I make it up to you with a brilliant French pop song?

Here it is--"Pop Art" by Tienou et les Wind-Dings.

I might lose my ability to upload files soon, though, since my friend isn't able to pay his site's hosting fees for this year.
