10 Movie Facts About Me (Meme)

April 19, 2010

Earlier today I was tagged by Olive at Movie News First to name 10 film facts about myself. I jotted down a few and here they are!

1. My earliest memory of a film was when I watched the Life of Brian at about 6 years of age.

2. My sisters and I used to watch the Zig & Zag and Michael Jackson movies on VHS over and over…and over again.

3. I regularly drink tea out of this mug (owned by Olive at Movie News First!):

4. I recently had a dream that actor Terry O’ Quinn and singer Paul Brady were showing me how to use ants to coax crows down from the branch of a tall beech tree. Paul Brady became impatient with me.

5. I own My Little Pony: The Movie on DVD.

6. I find Bette Davis to be one of the most magnetic actors in cinema history.

7. My favourite video-editing software is Adobe Premiere Pro.

8. I have made a promise to myself to one day get a Super 8 camera like Guy Maddin.

9. When I watch David Lynch in interviews, my eyes keep drifting up to his hairstyle.

10. For the last 4-5 days, I’ve been singing along to “Symphony” from the Paper Heart soundtrack while driving. If I see people around, I stop singing or reduce it to a hum and, when there’s noone in sight, I start singing again.

    Love the illustration:)
    Thanks for including the mug and a big shout out to “Robert.”
    And David Lynch does have a very cool hairstyle!

    How come you have a mug from Olive? haha I’m being noisy 😉

    I wonder what will happen if I own a mug with the best pictures of Keanu and Cillian…I probably will let my coffee becomes cold because I couldn’t take my eyes of the mug…hehe

    Haha Great list Roisin.

    That mug is Epic. I wonder if that guy knows that you drink your tea out of the top of his head. 🙂

    I wonder who’s head he drinks his tea out of?

    @Novroz I am Olive’s sister 🙂 There are Keanu mugs available online. (This is the type of info that clogs up my brain, so that there is no room for anything important). And it’s only a matter of time before we’re all using Cillian Murphy saucers. Niche in the market there, I believe.

      ah I see…now that’s explain why you are as Irish as Olive hehehe.

      I think I better avoid any eating/drinking ware/tool that have Keanu and Cillian face on it…I might end up collecting them rather than using them 🙂

      Hi Róisín, I kinda guessed that as you & Olive are from the same town. So both of you are Cillian fans also? Cool! Btw, do you spill much as you’re too distracted looking at Edward’ mug (pun intended)? 🙂

      I think I only own one mug of a celeb, it was sent to me by a friend who put a Gerry Butler photo that she took when we’re both at TIFF. It’s kind a weird photo though as there are a few people around him instead of just him in the mug, so I never use it much.

    A Cillian cutlery set – Every home needs one!

      Hahaha where will they put his face? on the handle or the metal?

      I can imagine his Red Eye’s stare on the metal…that will be a perfect knife to haunt or terrorize people.

    What a fun list! Super 8s all around, please.

    About No. 9: You do that too? David Lynch is one of those directors whose work I’ve tried really super hard to like but can’t … quite … do it. Maybe it’s because his hair distracts me.

    I can see Zig & Zag in the Thriller video now, and suddenly it all makes sense!

    About your number 3…please don’t tell my wife that such Edward paraphernalia exists. She’d buy 4 in a heartbeat. Our house already has enough Twilight to contend with…we can’t hold anymore:P

    I have to admit that Robt. Pattinson has the most appealingly symmetrical face ever! (That’s my way of saying he’s a hottie – Ha!) Kristi
