Saturday 9: Young and Beautiful (2013)

Saturday, March 23, 2019

1) Lana Del Rey wrote this song for the soundtrack of The Great Gatsby. She wanted it to reflect the feelings of Daisy Buchanan. Have you read The Great Gatsby?
 No. But, I have seen the movie. 

2) In the 1970s, Robert Redford portrayed Jay Gatsby. In the 2013 version, Leonardo di Caprio played the part. In real life, both "Gatsbys" have helped raised funds for the NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council). Are you careful about recycling and conserving water/electricity?
 Always. I usually recycle water I used for washing dishes and clothes. I used it to water the plants. 

3) Lana Del Rey admits that she dropped out of college because she simply could not get the required math credits. When confronted with basic addition, subtraction, multiplication or division, do you do it in your head? Reach for pencil and paper? Or do you take advantage of the calculator that's on your desktop or phone?
 I usually do it with my head, but with thousands I have to grab my phone. 

4) She enjoys Kurt Cobain, Eminem, Elvis and Sinatra. Which of those four gentlemen did you listen to most recently?
 Frank Sinatra. My sons sleeps well listening to his songs. 

5) Speaking of Sinatras, she has described her high maintenance look -- big hair, long nails, elaborate eye makeup, full lips -- as "Gangster Nancy Sinatra." How long does it take you, on an average day, to prepare to face the world?
 Ten minutes is okay. I don't wear make up. I go with baby powder and lip tint and I am good to go. 

6) She's a big soccer fan, and her favorite team is Liverpool FC. Here in the US, college basketball fans are currently obsessed with March Madness. What's the last sporting event that you watched?
 I'll be watching The Iron man event tomorrow. It will be held here in our city.

7) Her younger sister, Caroline, studied photography and is responsible for some of Lana's publicity pictures. Have you ever gotten a job because of a relative?

8) In 2013, when this song came out, Pope Francis became the first pope from a Latin American country. Latin America generally includes Mexico, most of Central and South America, and in the Caribbean, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico. What's the farthest south that you've ever traveled?
 The farthest place I have ever been is Thailand.

9) Random question -- What button would you prefer your life to have: rewind, fast forward or a pause?
 PAUSE. I usually buy and shop things I don't need. I don't like it. 

Join the fun HERE.
