Think of your favorite album. Why is it your favorite album?
I don’t have a favorite album, but one of my favorites is Chinese Democracy. I consider it a favorite album because I truly believe it helped me get through a very rough spot in my life when it finally came out in late 2008. I was a wreck emotionally. A lot of the lyrics throughout the album I could connect with almost fully. besides one song there was not a single moment I hated of the album. Still to this day I can listen to any song from it and remember how much it helped in the healing process.
Think of your favorite movie. Why is it your favorite movie?
There Will Be Blood. It’s my favorite film for many reasons. It is by far the best cinematic viewing of any film I’ve ever seen. I still remember sitting in the back row of the theater watching this. I was completely enthralled by it. I couldn’t get it off my mind for days and even weeks after I had seen it. The day it came out on DVD I immediately bought it and watched it on loop from about 2 PM to 2 AM. I could not get enough of it. I think it’s the best all around effort of any film I’ve laid my eyes on.
Think of your favorite book. Why is it your favorite book?
No Country For Old Men. It’s the most vivid book that I’ve ever read. The descriptions in it that were portrayed in my mind were wonderful. It was a very smooth read throughout. I rarely get so involved in a book to the point where I can’t put it down by No Country did that for me. I read this book even before the film hit the theaters. It made me think a lot afterwards too when I finished it, which is rare when it comes to books for me. I re-read it again in the days before I went to see it. I think it’s the best novel adaptation I’ve ever seen but the novel is still far better than the film.
