requests from my interest list

Ernie Dingo: is an aboriginal australian actor. He plays the male lead to Cate Blanchett in the miniseries Heartland / Burned Bridge. By the time I got through the 13 episodes, I wanted to see everything he's done, but I can't find any of his movies to buy. If anyone knows where I can get them, I can take any zone DVD...


Mouse Woman: I have a bunch of children's books by Christie Harris that retell North West Coast stories and Myths. I have Three Mouse Woman books, and if anyone knows of more, please write to me!

Mouse woman is a narnauk, an animal spirit that emboides the genera of the animal. She came out of the Tsimshain annd Haida notes of Franz Boaz. Mouse Woman is a tiny spirit, and therefor does not have big power - but she can be entreated to help, and if she is given a gift of something woven, she will think about the problem while she unravels the wool with her clever little fingers. She generally comes up with a difficult but satisfying way to tackle a problem.

Illya Kuryakin: (groans. I am *so* old)
once there was a very magical year in young fileg's life, in which she encountered Faramir, Illya and John Lennon. She was 11. It's a magic number, so she should have expected something...

Illya Kuryakin was the second banana spy spot to Napoleon Solo in the tv show The Man Form U.N.C.L.E (like spock, he soon overtook his lead in interest, and in being interesting) He was blond, brilliant and actually David McCallum - and I have always been a girl to go for the most beautiful geek in the area. He was educated, quiet, smoldering; he liked jazz and to keep his love life his own - we knew it happened, but he was not a playboy/bond style flaunter, he was... did I mention smoldering? He was exotic and russian and at the height of the cold war, I wanted to investigate global warming....



edrys asks: shackleton; what is it about him that interests you?

It's not Shackleton specifically, it polar exploration. I can't get enough. I read travel/ geographical adventure anyway, but I have the polar thing at the level of the gene the kind of familiar interest that makes you wonder about reincarnation. Ships with names like Endurance, mountains with names like Erebor - its just like when Eomer rides up out of the rising sun. Shackleton was a celt, too -- actually, if I have a favorite, it's probably Apsley Cherry-garrard, the youngest member of Scott's team.


Weiss Kreuz: this is an anime, four young men with painful pasts recruited to fight the forces of the dark. I am a sucker for anime boys with long red hair, anime boys who are sharp and caustic when pushed too far, anime boys who are angsty but strong - Aya/Ran has my number in spades.


Sumo: just because it's so beautiful! It is religion, sport, ritual, dance, sex... Jim will tell you I have a certain thing for Sumo Wrestlers and Percheron Horses that he thinks might be related. They make me think of another time, the raising of power, the reliance on what flows under the flesh. I like some of the mongolians, but I don't follow it like some people follow sport - not for wining and losing, just to see how the dance happens that night. I cried and cried when they cut Akebono's hair...


22x7 - I am afraid I can't figure out who the second part of your question is about. Did I cover it? please poke me again if I didn't.....
