Re: Break

1. At this very moment - the man in "Dreaming with Tears in My Eyes".

2. For the most part the women are much more empathetic.

3. I guess music...but now how could you talk about music without sex or politics.

4. All the time, sometimes I'm confused as to which is reality and which is not.

5. I don't Seriously though the best way for me is to put that part of me in song or painting. That's why most of my stuff is somewhat dark.

Wow this is pretty deep.....

1. Songs - I can identify with most U2 and possibly Creed songs - really don't watch much tv but could probably identify with Grace (Will & Grace) or Rachel (Friends)

2. The people on the forum are so diverse which is why I like to read the various threads...we're either on the same page or we're completely off target - but I like that.

3. I'd probably discuss politics, religion, sports or sexuality even if it were forbidden...I mean that's everyday life isn't it?

4. I dream vividly often - 3-4 times a week

5. I really don't have a dark side...really

1. What character in song, book, movie, or tv show do you most identify with?

my song is bad, always has been, always will be. not sure if that counts as identifying with a character per se, though...

maybe jane eyre, for going to all necessary lengths to maintain her dignity and for refusing to compromise her ideals for the sake of a man she truly loved.

or maybe miranda on sex and the city, for being a witty, cynical, and independent woman, and successful lawyer.

2. What difference do you notice between the men and women on this forum?

the women seem to be, for the most part, more empathetic and diplomatic, and less likely to engage in petty ego squabbles. for the most part, though, i think we've got a pretty good balance in here.

3. If you were absolutely forbidden upon pain of death to discuss politics, religion, sports or sexuality, what would you talk about?

books, music, travel, food... although i agree with BVS, the lines are often blurred.

4. How often do you dream vividly?

quite regularly, when i actually can sleep (insomnia ). unfortunately most of my dreams are not of the pleasant kind.

5. How do you control your demons, your dark side?

i write, get lost in my favourite music, go for a long walk by myself along the river, find myself a volunteer project to channel the negative energy into. sometimes i let my demons roam free in my mind as well, because they can be interesting characters.

6. What is your guilty pleasure?

i'm not sure any of my pleasures are guilty. life's too short to feel guilty about taking pleasure in something you truly enjoy.

1. Solari from Amadeus--always almost good enough, but always
having that one person ahead of me I cannot touch.
2. A lot of the men seem to identify strongly with and by their positions. Most of the women may hold strong opinions, but don't identify themselves by their positions. I think there is more
give and take among the women, in general (always the exceptions, however.) The men post references to fortify their position; the women post references to open them to discussion.
The men provide more detailed factual analysis. The humor is about equal. Both sexes have equal bite.
3. I had a lot of trouble with this question myself--the lines are
often blurred.
4. I dream vividly rarely, but when I do they are amazingly vivid,
usually provoked by some image or thought that occurred during the day.
5. I love Dandy's answer on the dark side. Sometimes the darkest thoughts are the most interesting. I cherish a lot of my dark side. But if I feel compelled to act on those demons, I wait 24 hours. Usually the compulsion to act goes away, but the demons remain. If the demons are too painful, I distract myself--usually through music--dark music. It's always comforting to know other people share my demons.
6. James Spader on Boston Legal. It's the only regular tv show I watch.

1. What character in song, book, movie, or tv show do you
most identify with? any one who gets their heart broken on a fairly regular basis and beats themselves up to much, makes a fool of themselves, loses out to someone else, thinks about and analyzes things too much..I can't think of one


2. What difference do you notice between the men and women
on this forum?

You mean in FYM? in general the women here are more friendly towards me. I don't mean that as an insult towards anyone, that's how I feel..probably I'm just paranoid

3. If you were absolutely forbidden upon pain of death to discuss
politics, religion, sports or sexuality, what would you talk
about? art, dogs, movies

4. How often do you dream vividly?
depends upon what state my mind and emotions are in, usually probably 3-4 times a month.

5. How do you control your demons, your dark side? by telling myself I will end up hurt

6. What is your guilty pleasure? the internet and potato chips (I love that James Spader answer, but I see nothing to feel guilty about over that one )

1. Luke Skywalker - I was adopted, raised by a wonderful man, mother taught me my natural father was the most evil man on the planet and when I was a naughty boy, was told I was just like him, I had to confront it.

2. There are very few conservative women.

3. I would want to talk about books....

4. Nightly vivid dreams.....some I have had since I was a child.

5. Many times I need a quiet space, all by myself. And prayer.

6. That is an easy one.....Mrs. Springsteen can answer for me...and we have never met



----------------
Added

I have so many guilty pleasures...

1. hard to come up with a single answer, but usually characters who struggle with doing what they ought to do with what they want to do -- lots of Bono's lyrics deal with this ("you've got to do what you should"), a literary character would be Jack Burden from _All the King's Men_.

2. pretty much what Bono's Saint said -- for men, their identity is their ideology, and there feels to be much more at stake when they post (totally guilty as charged).

3. art, movies, travel ... yet, i don't know how you could talk about anything without any of those subjects coming up.

4. often. sometimes my dreams are ultra-literal, and i don't have recurring dreams, as such, but recurring locations. lots of dreams about dark water and ice for some reason ...

5. several different ways. i'm not prone to depression, but i am to anxiety, and i deal with this through a constant intellectual battle with my emotions -- it's a challenge to maintain perspective and remind myself that the weight of the world hasn't been placed on my shoulders. deep breaths, good food with friends, the occasional herbal refreshment which is cheaper and has less side effects than anything a doctor could perscribe and does wonders to alleviate anxiety.

6. i get a spectacularly trashy gossipy weekly email newsletter called POPBITCH. sooooo fun.
