This week’s Friday Five.
- If your life were a movie, what would the title be?
Hm… hard to say. Possibly something like: “I Was a Geeky Milpitian” or “How To Find Happiness on the Internet Without Really Trying.”
- What songs would be on the soundtrack?
Hm… stuff by Nine Inch Nails, Red Elvises, the Phenomenauts, and Primus. Also Moby and Fatboy Slim, probably.
- Would it be a live-action film or animated? Why?
This is a tricky one. I have really weird daydreams, which would have to be in the movie, so animation would make that easier. But I tend to prefer live action – and besides, portions of it would definitely not be kids’ fare. So… hm. Maybe live action, with animated daydreams? That’s an old trick but a good one.
- Casting: who would play you, members of your family, friends, etc?
Oh, wow. Lemme think. Realistically: newcomers nobody’s heard of.
Fantasy, money-no-object, ages-no-problem:
Me: Christine Ricci or Kate Winslett with her hair dyed.
The bf: either Kevin Smith or Jack Black.
Mom: Anjelica Houston
Dad: no clue. Dad, who do you think should play you?
Jen: Uma Thurman
Other than that, I have NO idea.
- Describe the movie preview/trailer.
Voiceover: “Born and raised in the Bay Area, she was a Northern California Girl. Able to get along but a loner at heart, she disovered the ultimate social network via … the internet!.”
Shots of me walking the streets of Milpitas, cruising online, going to Blogger meetups, etc. Me and the bf, talking geek stuff, preferably with him in one of his URL-laden Tshirts.
… or something. I dunno if I’d want it to just be about the ‘net, since I do (contrary to how things sometimes appear) have a life away from my computer. Still, the web and the net are a predominant theme in my life. Hell, if it weren’t for the web, I wouldn’t have met some of my best friends or the bf, so it’s gotta be in there! :)
