Meme: No one has...

Name a CD you own that no-one else on your friends list does.
Hmm. One of the 1000 signed copies of Thomas Dolby's "Forty"? Or the vinyl of The Buggles' "Adventures in Modern Recording"?

Name a book you own that no-one else on your friends list does.
A difficult one knowing all the folk here... Possibly all of George Alec Effinger's Marid Audrain novels? Or a near complete set of Brian Earnshaw's Dragonfall 5 books? (Or I could dig out my finite element analysis text books...)

Name a movie you own on DVD/VHS/whatever that no-one else on your friends list does.
I do have some fairly obscure anime, so I'd probably go for all of "Haibane Renmei"

Name a place that you have visited that no-one else on your friends list has
I'm probably not the only one who'd been to the Po-Lin Buddha, and I know that two folk on this list were with me when we went over the Trail Ridge Road, and there was a bit of a fashion for going to the Grand Canyon this year, so I'm going to go for a rather delightful little Portugeuse tapas bar in Mid Levels in Hong Kong.

I've got the Effingers, but you win on the rest of it.

I'm going to channel AOL users here and say 'me too' at this point...

But I've also got the When Gravity Fails sourcebook for the Cyberpunk RPG.

I remember that - and the Hardwired supplement.

But I (did) have a copy of the Ringworld RPG. Sadly, in the course of several international moves, it seems to have gone missing :-(

Never had the WGF sourcebook, but have the Hardwired sourcebook, which was damned good. Pre-CP2020, it was easily the best supplement available for CP.

Oh yes. But then WJW wrote it, and he was a game designer before he was a novelist...

I still have it - and the Ringworld Comapnaion - Best SF RPG evah!

Yep - I had that too, as well as the one Ringworld scenario ever produced in Different Worlds, all kept in the same game box just to make them nice and easy to lose all at once.

I've got at least two of the Effinger Budayeen books - how many were there? (the titles I can recall are When Gravity Fails and A Fire In The Sun, and I'm struggling to think of other Dylan lyrics that would be suitable titles for cyberpunk novels).

The Exile Kiss

Some of my favourite novels, and I'm glad that the latest JCG has the same twisted intensity in a North African setting...

This could well be a losing strategy also...

I've got Haibane Renmei, but the signed Dolby is indeed impressive.
