Memerie

Name: (1) a book that you want to share so much that you keep giving away copies, (2) a piece of music that changed the way you listen to music, (3) a film you can watch again and again without fatigue, (4) a performer for whom you suspend of all disbelief, (5) a work of art you'd like to live with, (6) a work of fiction which has penetrated your real life, and (7) a punch line that always makes you laugh. Forward this to three people.

(1) Weschler, Seeing Is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Sees: A Life of Contemporary Artist Robert Irwin
(2) Ives, Second Orchestral Set
(3) The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (Huston)
(4) Groucho Marx
(5) Walter De Maria, Lightning Field
(6) Borges, The Anthropologist
(7) "Did you see that? That was our dog?"

Postscript:

I forwarded this to Patrick Swanson, whose response is here, to Roger Bourland, who has a list here, and Tom Hilton, of If I Ran The Zoo, who is hard at work on his.

A while back, I noted that:

These memes are really just questionaires of the sort played in parlors in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Musicians played them back then, too. Debussy, for example. The best know questionaires are the two answered by Proust, including such zingers as " What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?", "What is your idea of earthly happiness?" or "To what faults do you feel most indulgent?."
