The Sign Of Four

Kevin handed this thing off to me, so here goes (and it'll be slightly different than the one I left in Roy's comments section):

Four jobs you've had in your life: Farmer, printing press assistant, welder, assembly line peon

Four movies you could watch over and over: Aguirre, The Wrath of God; Sling Blade; The Elephant Man; The Big Lebowski

Four places you've lived: BFE, AR; Memphis, TN; Newburgh, IN; Newark, DE

Four TV shows you love to watch: The Daily Show, The Simpsons, X-Files, Antiques Roadshow

Four websites you visit daily: Eschaton, alicublog, Sadly No!, TBOGG

Four of your favorite foods: BBQ, shrimp, fried chicken, kluski szlonski

Four places you'd rather be: Altair-4, Easter Island, never-neverland, deep inside Denise Richards.

Four cars you've owned: 66 Mustang Fastback, 70 AMC AMX, 87 Jeep Wrangler, 89 Jeep Wrangler.

Four toys from childhood you wish you could have back: Lawn Darts, Star Wars AT-AT, Legos before they got stupid and too specialised, Plastic bags.

Four exes I've missed: Rebecca, Alicja, Teagan, Elizabeth.

Four games I can't stop playing: Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty: United Offensive, GTA: Vice City (I just got San Andreas, ok), Return to Castle Wolfenstein.

Four things you hate to your core: republicans, wind, traffic, libertarians.

Four favorite trees: Liriodendron tulipifera (Tulip Poplar), Juglans nigra (Black Walnut), Taxodium ascendens (Bald Cypress), Prunus serotina (Black Cherry).

Four movies no one who knows you thought you'd like, and you never thought you'd like, but you liked a lot anyway: Places in the Heart, Dancer in the Dark, The Matrix, The Passion of the Christ.

The four most deplorable things related to movies: prices of Criterion dvds, Keanu Reeves, Jerry fucking Bruckheimer, that so many movies are based on comic books or "graphic novels".

Now I'd like to steal a few of Gavin's:

Four movies you'll never watch: Daredevil, Pearl Harbor, Narnia shit, divine secrets of the ya-ya sisterhood or whatever.

Four bands that people say are great, that actually basically aren't: Pavement, the Beastie Boys, Uncle Tupelo, and to go well back into the archive, Deep Purple.

Four foods that you like, that other people are appalled by: Pork rinds, squid jerky, venison, goose.

Four blogs that you don't understand why a lot of people read them: Instapundit, Kevin Fucking Drum, Andrewsullivan.com, Craptain Ed.

Four beautiful things: snowfall, images from Hubble, Vida Guerra's ass, the sound of a Rickenbacker 4003.
