13. Name a movie that you keep meaning to see but just haven’t yet gotten around to it. What About Bob with Bill Murray

14. Ever walked out of a movie? Bunch of times, started when I was a kid. I took some kids to the movies on my 6th birthday to see "The Time Machine", I got so scared that I walked out and wandered the streets for about twenty minutes. "Jaws", I went to see it with my sister, I left the theatre after the head fell out of the bottom of the boat. There have been multiple times because I am a big scardy cat. The only time I have walked out of a movie because it was bad was the "Talented Mr Ripley" - I walked around the theatre until it was finished, wife sat through the whole thing, I don't understand how she could.

Listening to
The Band Life is a Carnival

You can walk on the water, drown in the sand
You can fly off a mountaintop if anybody can
Run away, run away--it's the restless age
Look away, look away--you can turn the page

Hey, buddy, would you like to buy a watch real cheap
Here on the street
I got six on each arm and two more round my feet
Life is a carnival--believe it or not
Life is a carnival--two bits a shot

Saw a man with the jinx in the third degree
From trying to deal with people--people you can't see
Take away, take away, this house of mirrors
Give away, give away, all the souvenirs
We're all in the same boat ready to float off the edge of the world
The flat old world
The street is a sideshow from the peddler to the corner girl
Life is a carnival--it's in the book
Life is a carnival--take another look

Hey, buddy, would you like to buy a watch real cheap
Here on the street
I got six on each arm and two more round my feet
Life is a carnival--believe it or not
Life is a carnival--two bits a shot
