Given my recent LJsilence, I thought I would take part in the interview meme that is probably the longest running meme in LJhistory (if there are no more CHEERuptions). For those unfamiliar with the rules . . .

1 -- Leave a comment to this post requesting to be interviewed.
2 -- I will respond by asking five questions.
3 -- You will post the questions I asked you, along with your truthful responses in your own journal.
4 -- You'll include these or similar instructions along with your answers.
5 -- You'll ask other people five questions when they request to be interviewed.

Interviewed by thelast5years
1. What's your favorite musical theater song?
This answer changes more often than my hair color! I'm a sucker for the sad and/or angry songs that really show us the inner workings of a character. Right now, I'm all about Lot's Wife from Caroline, or Change, but some songs I've obsessed over in the past include Anyone Can Whistle from ACW, Please from Miss Saigon, Twisted Every Way from Phantom, If I Didn't Believe in You from L5Y(honestly, all of L5Y), Words he Doesn't Say from Romance Romance, and She's a Woman from Kiss of the Spider Woman.

2. Have you ever been married?
No. ewww, taco.

3. What's your favorite book?
non-fiction - Becoming a Man by Paul Monette. Fiction - The Dark Tower series by Stephen King (is it Sep 24, yet?)

4. What's your guilty musical pleasure?
Oklahoma. I hate all the other R&H stuff, but love Oklahoma. I swore my first voice teacher to secrecy, and would sing it in lessons.

5. What is your name?
Stewart Thomas Hadley, Jr.

Re: Hello
1. Flint, because it was where you landed, or because it's where you want to be? Support your answer.
2. What are your life goals for the next five years?
3. Favorite movie of all time?
4. What is your greatest accomplishment to date?
5. Who are your role models?
Aug. 29th, 2004 02:11 pm (UTC)
My responses.

1.) Flint because I landed here, was born here and now I feel stuck here. As if I am in a mood of comfort, familiarity. I am here because I have been and feel comfortable here. Scared perhaps to wonder to other places i.e. Chicago, Dallas,Toronto. Although I have a high penchant love for the City of Flint, because I know where it has been, what it was, and what it can become.

2.) Pay off my bills, Save Money, Finish learning to play piano, Be happy with myself, Educate and master the Kabbalah more, Travel to Europe, Get my Real Estate Brokers License, Learn Sign Language.

3.) Grease

4.) Great Accomplishment to date is the purchase of my new home. And being able to continue the restoration of it. And I need to not forget to mention being an Awesome Uncle Ryan, to my niece Mackenzie.

5.) Role Models are My Mother, she has been through so much, and gives so much. But is always there to give even more, she takes care of her family and friends first, then if there is any left, she then gives to herself. I also consider (please don't laugh) CHER to be one of my role models. Not only has she hit rock bottom numerous times, but she also has re invented herself through out the 10 decades (okay I am exaggerating) she has been around. And she never gives up, she always tries, even if she fails. She continues to prove people wrong, and make herself better. Plus she is very compassionate, and if she does wrong she admits it, apologizes and tries to make it right.. All of which I think are admirable.

I just want to say you made my day, mentioning "Anyone Can Whistle" as a favorite. I used to have a photocopy (out of a magazine? book? something) of Sondheim's original handwritten lyrics taped in a school planner, just so I could look at them and sigh reverently when the mood struck. Just gorgeous.
Aug. 30th, 2004 03:55 pm (UTC)
ACW changed my life. When I first heard it, I so identified with Fay (of course you can whistle, just fuckin' practice!). Years, and a few breakdowns, later, I realize that my life is a journey of becoming less Fay and more Hapgood (thus the name). It's a worthy journey. Sondheim is ???? (I couldn't come up with a way to finish this sentence without sounding trite).
