We Got Answers, Gordon

Our first contestant is is the appreciative Gordon

1) Who put the bomp in the bomp shu-bomp shu-bomp?

Lessee, I’ll go with the Marcels’ classic version of Blue Moon, 1961, possibly my favorite song from that year.

And as a corrollary, who put the ram in the rama lama ding dong?

I recall that Paul McCartney had an album called Ram, his second solo effort, I believe. Somehow this ties into Fred Hembeck’s theory back on March 31 that the Uncle Albert on the album is actually Herb Alpert. Whipped Cream and Other Delights, indeed.

2) Is there one particular author whose latest books you will read, no matter what the subject matter?

I’m streaky. For a while it was Russell Baker. I’ve read a lot of Bob Woodward (and I’m disappointed with his role in the Valerie Plame situation). Right now, it’s Sandra Boynton.

3) Top 5 favorite movies of all time.

It’ll almost always be comedies, musicals, or adventure films because asd good as something like Shawshank Redemption is, I don’t know if I want to see it again soon after the last time.

Annie Hall, Groundhog Day, Being There, Young Frankenstein.

The fifth slot goes to whatever strikes my fancy- Airplane, West Side Story, Toy Story 2, Casablanca.

Gordon also wanted me to do this meme, and as I always do what Gordon says:

Your Personality Profile

You are elegant, withdrawn, and brilliant.
Your mind is a weapon, able to solve any puzzle.
You are also great at poking holes in arguments and common beliefs.

For you, comfort and calm are very important.
You tend to thrive on your own and shrug off most affection.
You prefer to protect your emotions and stay strong.

I’m a water sign, what can I tell you? Didn’t cop Gordon’s choice.

I'm a librarian. I hear music, even when it's not being played. I used to work at a comic book store, and it still informs my life. I won once on JEOPARDY! - ditto.
