Meditation on The Burning House Meme

The Burning House

The Burning House asks people:

If your house was burning, what would you take with you? It’s a conflict between what’s practical, valuable and sentimental. What you would take reflects your interests, background and priorities. Think of it as an interview condensed into one question.

I’m going to do the actual exercise they suggest, but this is the image that first came to mind.

    “The lighter and gas can so the cops don’t figure out that I burned it down for the insurance money.”

      oooh… great answer crap!

      Hmm… the question is kind of interesting… but BG, I think your photo might be even more exciting… maybe we should turn it into the “Burning House Photo Challenge”

      After all, we had all those “bodyguard” photos last week that everyone swooned over… who doesn’t love the photo where your bodyguard rescues you from the burning house!

      PS BG: Did I see a rare surfacing of legendary dead girl NIGHT???

        That was an old shot of Night. And here’s a great Burning House song by the late great Warren Zevon:

          aww, I miss Night.

          Great Zevon track!

          Still love Talking Heads, of course:
