Evolution in cyberspace meme

October 15, 2007

Apparently, i’ve been tagged for an incredibly dorky meme. This is right up my alley.

Okay…I’ll admit it. I had to look up what this meme’in’ within the context of blogging is all about. I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed, but trying to keep up.

So, here’s what I’m supposed to do:

There are a set of questions below that are all of the form, “The best [subgenre] in [genre] is…”. Copy the questions, and before answering them, you may modify them in a limited way, carrying out no more than two of these operations:
* You can leave them exactly as is.
* You can delete any one question.
* You can mutate either the genre, medium, or subgenre of any one question. For instance, you could change “The best time travel novel in SF/Fantasy is…” to “The best time travel novel in Westerns is…”, or “The best time travel movie in SF/Fantasy is…”, or “The best romance novel in SF/Fantasy is…”.
* You can add a completely new question of your choice to the end of the list, as long as it is still in the form “The best [subgenre] in [genre] is…”.
* You must have at least one question in your set, or you’ve gone extinct, and you must be able to answer it yourself, or you’re not viable.
Then answer your possibly mutant set of questions. Please do include a link back to the blog you got them from, to simplify tracing the ancestry, and include these instructions.
Finally, pass it along to any number of your fellow bloggers. Remember, though, your success as a Darwinian replicator is going to be measured by the propagation of your variants, which is
going to be a function of both the interest your well-honed questions generate and the number of successful attempts at reproducing them.

Okay, here are my answers:

The best scary movie in sociopolitical dystopias is: A Clockwork Orange (Stanley Kubrick film adapted from Anthony Burgess novel of the same name).

The best sexy song in jazz-funk is:Double Game” by Jennifer Charles and Billy Martin.

The best whimsical story in adult short stories is:On Having No Head” by D.E. Harding (most interpret this as about spirituality and zen stuff…I think its whimsical!)

I was tagged by Kate…she was tagged by Coturnix.

I now tag Thermochronic, Sabine, and ChrisR.

    it may be incredibly dorky…but you still did it!
    they’re kind of irresistable, in an awful way.
