    I have always love BBC’s Desert Island Disk. I thought it would be fun to see what all the interesting characters of RJ would say. If you don’t know what Desert Island Disk is then I will quote Wikipedia because I am slightly lazy today.

    “Guests are invited to imagine themselves as castaways on a desert island, and asked to choose the eight pieces of music they would take with them; discussion of their choices permits a review of their life. Aside from the music they select, they are also permitted to take one book, excluding the Bible or other religious work and the complete works of Shakespeare, which are deemed to be already present on the island (probably to force castaways to make more original and interesting choices). They also choose one luxury item which must be inanimate and of no survival value, though large supplies of champagne seem to be allowed.”

    I know you probably think that it sounds boring so we will change the rules.

    1. You only have to choose 3 songs, and no explanation needed.
    2. Choosing a Book is optional.
    3. Pick one luxury item.
    4. And because this is RJ, you can pick one member from your hot list to join you on the island.

    Here is mine…

    Music:
    1. Chicago “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is”
    2. Lou Reed “Walk On The Wild Side”
    3. Yes “I’ve Seen All Good People”

    Book:
    The Pirates: In an Adventure with Scientists by Gideon Defoe
    It always makes me laugh.

    Item:
    A hand crank Blender then I would be able to make fruit smoothies.

    Hot List Guy:
    I would have to pick Riptjockicon_wink.gif


    Now let’s see yours.

    Music:
    1. World Party "When the Rainbow Comes"

    3. Duran Duran "Save a Prayer"

    Book:
    Walden, H. D. Thoreau

    Item:
    The finest strain of kind bud seeds Willie Nelson could provide. Only to partake after 9pm though...there's survivin' to be done!

    Hot List Guy:
    I would have to pick atxclimber. A rugger and a climber, both from ATX and stranded, would be quite an interesting dynamic. YOU go get the coconuts, I'LL go get the wild boar. Then let's have dinner, celebrate Willie, and break the monotony with that "kink" thing you've been talking about. ;-)

    If I didn't only have Austin area guys on my hotlist, I have to say DiverScience would come pretty close too, for the same reason as cronker stated, plus he seems bouncy. For some reason that seems like something useful in the wilderness.

    1: Genius of Love by the Tom Tom Club; Love Hangover by Diana Ross; Freedom 90 by George Michael.

    2: Sexual Personae by Camille Paglia.

    3: A toothbrush.

    4: I don't use the Hotlist feature. After about a week into using the site, I decided that conversing with hot guys seemed more practical. RuggerATX is dreamy, though. He just seems so decent, and that gets me every time.
