Ok, Ian, I see why you wanted me back – I’ve missed being tagged at least three times. I’m going to have to cheat a little and combine the posts so they are all together. I’ll try and catch up with everyone’s blogs at some point soon. Sorry.

2. Last movie I bought
3. Last movie I watched
Star Wars Episode III
4. Five movies that mean a lot to me
Strictly Ballroom – It’s worth it just to hear my grandparents trying to make us ‘Show [them our] Paso Doble’
Moulin Rouge – If you’ve never heard Nat, Jenn and I yelling along to El Tango de Roxanne then you’re very fortunate but it is definitely a good thing from my time at uni.
The Incredibles – It’s just such a great film and I got it by trading in some of my old and unwanted DVDs, so it was free.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show – It reminds me of making one of my (male) uni friends a corset for our trip to the theatre to see the show.
Pirates of the Caribbean – It’s just such complete escapism!

I’ll come back to this later…
I’ve just come back from a good night with good friends and although I have a 9am lecture, I’m too excited and generally high to get to sleep, so thought I would take up Tractor Girl’s challenge.
Total Volume of music on your computer:
Which computer? Between the two, I must have about 10GB music.
The last album you purchased was:
Well, the newest album I have is Kasabian’s new one but I didn’t buy it. I don’t think I’ve bought an album in about 4 years!
Song Playing right now:
Radio 4 – not that it’s a song but it was playing Iraqi music.
Seven songs you’ve been listening to a lot recently, from several genres:
Fearless – The Bravery (It’s on Kerrang! lots)
Early One Morning/Young Collins – Jim Moray (It’s often on in the office)
In the Waiting Line – Zero 7 (from the Garden State soundtrack – great film)
Superman – Stereophonics (Kerrang again)
Sailing By – I don’t know who it’s by but it is always a sign that I need more sleep.
Little Sister – Queens of the Stone Age (Kerrang yet again)
The National Anthem – It’s after sailing by and before I often go to sleep.
Enough different styles covered?
