Mozart questionnaire….

Posted on June 28th, 2007 @ 21:14 in Uncategorized

Well, so to speak. Questions posted by the very marvellous Mozart on Myspace… I was gonna post this on my Myspace first as usual but it just went on and on and they’re kinda interesting questions so I thought I’d just post it here.

1. Which character in a book is a lot like you? How?
Um great start. Don’t know and can’t be bothered to think about it.

2. Which character from a movie you have seen is a lot like you? How?
As above. (this is gonna get better ok?)

3. If you could wake up tomorrow speaking a foreign language fluently, which would it be?
Arabic.

4. What part of your home do you like best?
The colourfulness and the location.

5. What about getting older makes you most afraid?
Having to change in order to adapt to expectations. Or refusing to change but more and more feeling the need to justify myself.
Oh and maybe ill heath… like all my bad habits catching up with me.

6. What games are you the best at playing?
Mind-games? Nah, not even that. I suck at games.

7. What is one thing you admire about each of your parents?
My dad… His sense of justice, his dedication to things and ideals, his infinite knowledge, his charm and his wit.
My father… nothing. Well, I guess his ability to weasel his way through life deserves a certain amount of respect. Requires a lot of skill and chuzpah. And reckless selfishness. So maybe not.
My mum… again her sense of justice, the way she handled a life which wasn’t always easy (e.g. after my father left her while she was pregnant with me, and also after my dad’s death)… actually the way she dealt with my father (and stuff with my nan after that) is quite possibly what I admire most about her. I’ve seen so many nasty divorces, and I have felt frustration / anger myself to the point where I can almost understand how people could react so viciously even when there are children involved… the way she dealt with that shit was just incredible.

8. Which would you rather be: handsome/beautiful or incredibly intelligent?
Incredibly intelligent.

9. What things are essential in creating a romantic evening?
Don’t do romance.

10. If you could be an internationally known expert in any field, which would it be?
Hmmm….. possibly (modern) art. Being an internationally known expert on anything would be nice tho. Actually I kinda like/envy Simon Baron-Cohen (he’s the autism guy, and yes he’s related to Sacha). But that’s not really my field. A geeky subject would be cool too but there’s so many of them. So yeah I’ll stick with art.

11. Would you rather work with your head or your hands?
I don’t know. Sometimes I’ve thought that manual labour might be quite… satisfying. Being a builder or sth, not rubbish collection. Creating something with your hands… even doing sth as monotonous as painting a wall. But long term I think I might just go crazy so I’ll say head.

12. When you go out with friends for an evening, what do you like to do the most?
Talk.

13. What in life makes you the most angry?
Oh that really depends on my mood. Sometimes ideological issues, sometimes silly things like bad grammar, sometimes things like friends treating me like shit… so can’t say.

14. Which in life gives you the most joy?
Placebo concerts.

15. What is the nicest thing anyone has ever done for you?
Oh. Wow. Actually, I think I know something…
When I really wanted to buy my Prince (you know, the horse) but was very broke, a friend lent me the money. Then, when he wanted it back (earlier than I had banked on) cuz he was gonna buy a flat, my parents paid my friend back (cuz they were under the impression that he sorta wanted sex in return for the money, which he may have done but would never have got cuz it was not in the contract, but anyway they were uncomfortable with the idea that I was indebted to anyone). So lending me that money (which was rather a lot) and my parents (worriedly) looking out for me and paying it back were both nice things to do.

16. If you could change your first name to anything else, what name would you choose?
Don’t think I would. I like my first name. Tho I get annoyed at current job cuz Germans consistently spell it wrong (even if they’re replying to my email where it is spelled right for God’s sake) because the German spelling is different.

17. What is the strangest thing you ever brought home when you were a child?
Haha, some weird person targeted me for a while as a child and sent me… sorta like treasure hunt instructions and the “hidden treasure” was always a folder of porn pictures. Nothing sick, just normal porn, but I was like 10 at the time or sth so it was a bit… weird. I only brought home 2 of them, and after the 1st one my mum told me to ignore any more messages, but of course I was too curious and went to get the 2nd one too, and my mum was SO mad when she found out… lmao this makes me wanna call her and ask actually…

[3hrs later] apparently I made all of that up, or remember it wrong, or dreamt it. Which I really don’t believe but who knows. Maybe half of my childhood memories are pure fantasy, or some dreams I had… it’s difficult to judge when you know your mum has, um, memory issues, but I am doubting myself now, even tho I really do remember this in so much detail.

But I do agree with her, from what I have read and stuff, it is entirely possibly to “remember” something that never actually happened (just as you can repress something that has). It’s just not something I’ve really had to incorporate into the concept of my own childhood memories. And it makes you wonder – what are your memories worth at all? Half of it may be complete fiction. It’s a bit scary.

Aaand thus a “questionnaire” entry turned into a long ramble. But there is one more question.

18. If you could wake up a genius at anything, what would you like that to be?
Figuring out people. Oh, you mean something realistic? Er, well since this was a Mozart survey I’ll say composing / playing incredibly beautiful music. Goosebump-inducing music. I’ve never heard anyone say “that painting gives me goosebumps” – tho I don’t doubt it happens, and what Anselm Kiefer’s Lilith does to me is not far from that – but it’s the one painting that may do that to me whereas there are many music pieces that can.
So yeah maybe it’s just cuz of my affinity for music and what it has given me throughout the years (I can’t say Hundertwasser’s paintings have ever helped me through phases of depression) but yeah I’d love to be able to do that.

The End.

That was interesting. Especially about your Prince. I should never deleted Mozart. Oh the sacrifices I make!
