Uniqueness meme

Ooo, I liked this. I saw it in teenes LJ, and was too curious about what I could put here not to do it:

Name a CD you own that no-one else on your friends list does:
D'Cuckoo's self-titled album.

Kind of hard to describe, so this is what it says on the CD sleeve: D'Cuckoo is a techno-artist collective whose work knows no bounds, geographically and technologically. They invented and built electronic percussion instruments that trigger an enormous range of digital sound and music samples. With a solid foundation in computer and synthesizer programming, Euro-Western classical theory, Zimbabwean percussion and Japanese drumming, these four women amalgamate styles as diverse as shona and taiko, funk and cyberpunk.

I actually have 2 of their albums. They've got some really amazing stuff.

Name a book you own that no-one else on your friends list does:
Love Letters: An Anthology of Passion, edited by Michelle Lovric.

As far as I know, this was only available through Past Times in the UK. I got it as a Christmas gift from Craig a few years ago. It's a volume of love letters throughout the centuries, with reproductions of the originals scattered through it. It's a beautiful book.

Name a movie you own on DVD/VHS/whatever that no-one else on your friends list does:

Random Harvest with Ronald Colman and Greer Garson. One of my favorite romantic movies. I used to work for a video store when I was in college, and have a ton of PVT's, including this one.

Name a place that you have visited that no-one else on your friends list has:

This one's the hardest as I have people on my friends list from all over the world. I'll take a stab and say Indian River, Michigan. Small town near the bridge where I had family growing up. I know I have Michiganders on my list, but maybe Indian River's small enough to have escaped your attention. :)

And no, I don't recommend anyone going there. Bo-ring.

I'm such a sap

CSI made me cry tonight. I'm such a wuss.

On the other hand, a single line of dialogue inspired me in ways that I haven't been inspired in ages. Usually, I get sparked by a visual---a place I see, an image I run across---but now I'm all giddy about this one line. Which isn't good because I've got enough stuff on my plate right now. My William ficathon assignment, my day for winter_of_wes, Frost, Echoes...not to mention the fractured fairy tale ficathon that I signed up for that I'm just waiting for my assignment on, any of my screenplays, or any of the other fic bunnies that are hopping around in the background.

All this wistful thinking about my fics got me into a nasty round of navel-gazing, and I started musing about what scenes got me started in my fics. Guess what? I'm putting some of my thoughts here...

Ack. It's late, and I'm thinking far too much, and making far too little sense. Tomorrow's going to be a busy day---Craig's weekly poker game, Alicia's friend Anabel coming over in the afternoon for a playdate, the usual household stuff---so I envision the next Frost chapter coming out Saturday or Sunday.
