What question do you think Alan C. forgot to ask?

Edit: Since he's now gone back and asked it....


I like to sunbathe just because it feels good but I use very high protection sun cream on my fair skin.

Ewww....when I was a teenager I had very greasy hair and I was told that I was washing it too often and overstimulating the sweat glands. I was advised to leave it for a week before washing it. Like a mug, I fell for it and lasted five days. I looked and felt disgusting and never repeated the experiment.

If we're talking 1950s style Rock n' Roll, for me it's Chuck Berry (before his appalling 'My ding-a-ling' disgrace). I saw him perform as one of a a whole bunch of self-proclaimed Kings of Rock n' Roll at Wembley Stadium in 1972 or 73 and he was head and shoulders above the rest who included Bill Haley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard (who got booed off stage) and Bo Diddley who comes a close second. I've got Chuck Berry's autograph somewhere. I wonder where.

I was 15 and she was two years older and called Deirdre. I thought she was trying to eat me alive. I was terrified.

3 or 4. I tend to go for understated elegance rather than high fashion.

Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata though I'd probably use most of the time to think and meditate silently (assuming I had no books).

The third movement of Sibelius's 4th symphony. When ever I get really low and depressed, that does it for me... not because its in any way cheering (its one of the bleakest things I know), but because it gives emotional pain a context of beauty and grandeur. He was facing cancer at the time, and survived.

I'm addicted to books and reading in general. Living alone I have to have something to read at all times. But I'd say that music means more to me, as it can bring tears of sadness or shouts of joy in a way that the printed page cannot.



Do you think there is there any merit in rap, or is it just bad poetry, that doesn't scan, by people who can't sing?

Of course it has merit. Just because I do not like most of the rap that I hear does not mean it has no merit. Some rap has a lot of merit.

Never. I once got 2/3 through the first one but gave up as I couldn't remember who was who and I found it a bit boring. (Gasp!)

How many times you have to listened to Wagner's Ring Cycle?

I'm sorry to say I haven't. But I have read The Lord of the Rings many times, the first time when I was fourteen when I was absolutely riveted by it.

I can give an honest response to this (most of Georgette Heyer's regency romances, esp. The Grand Sophy, Arabella, The Convenient Marriage, False Colours, Friday's Child etc etc) - unfailngingly witty and cheering and delightful - or talk about other, more reputable books which i return to often (but just not quite as often) - Cold Comfort Farm, Dorothy Dunnet's Lymond Saga, any Jane Austen, Iain M Banks' Culture novels ...oh the list is endless. I don't know whether its a fault or a failing that i simply forget what happens, so that all these feel fresh and new when I get to them, but i re-read as much as I read new works.
