Would you attempt the impossible, even if you were told it couldn't be done? Nope. I'd be the one telling people that it couldn't be done. I'm a cynic like that.
Would you do what you thought was right, even without the help or support of others? No, I don't think I would. I need to have my opinions and actions backed up by everyone around me before I do something.
Are you dependable? Absolutely. I actually pride myself on that.
Who or What would you lay in front of a tank for? My family and friends. A cause or movement I feel deeply for.
Across the Universe -
Favorite character and why: The little kid that was singing "Let it Be" - Yeah, he tore me up, and I kind of bawled when he died. It was just such powerful imagery accompanied by the song, that - man, I loved him.
Who do you relate to most and why: Prue - I guess she was struggling to find her place in the world, and while I've always know who I am, I've always struggled to fit in - find out where exactly I belong.
Favorite scene? The end scene. It's just, so beautiful. So perfect.
Favorite quotes (no more than three):
"Music's the only thing that makes sense anymore, man. Play it loud enough, it keeps the demons away." - JoJo
Favorite song-scene: Its a tie between "Let it be" and the final scene. They are both amazing. Really, really amazing.
