Stolen from Chantal:
1. Favorite Album Cover Art?
Mark Ryden's cover for Clear Hearts Grey Flowers by Jack Off Jill. Also one of the Tool albums that's all shiney and weird, I think it's Opiate, where is Gina when you need her? And Sergeant Pepper is a classic

2. What album(s) do you own in more than one format?
I am not one of those anal 'I have to have every single single, vinyl, CD etc. so that I may prove my worth and Cerys will love me' Catatonia fans, unlike some people (*cough* Dave *cough*), so none

3. Analog or Digital?
Analogue, yes I am old fashioned, bite me

5. What albums of your parents did you borrow or steal?
Loads off my mum. Kirsty MacColl, Beatles, Abba, Costello, Suzanne Vega, some Greatest Hits of the 60s thing (that might have been my stepdad's). She steals from Jack's collection. When it comes to music, my little brother is officially the coolest person in the family

6. Secret guilty pleasure album?
You're expecting me to say Spice Girls, aren't you? Well it's not, it's the Limp Bizkit one I bought off Jack. So nyah

7. Favorite movie soundtrack?
Kill Bill or The Matrix

8. Favorite compilation album?
Ladyfest 2003, and this Best Album In The World...Ever! with a green cover, it's from 1996, has Skunk Anansie, REM, Space, Mansun, Oasis (The Masterplan, their best song ever) and various other great things, and it reminds me of my little indie grrl phase
