    If you could have written any song, which song would you have written?


    If you could have starred in any film, what film would you have starred in?


    If there was one date in history and one place where you could have stood, where would that be?

    Just off the top of my head:

    Song = Stairway (trying to think of the most played song for the royalties aspect)

    Film = To Kill a Mockingbird (I've always liked Peck but I surely would have goofed it up.)

    Date = April 14th., 1865. Blocking the presidential box door. He deserved a little more time ( although the whole space-time continuum thing would be screwed up)

    That wasn't what was asked; just the date and location!

    You really don't know? Okay, does this photo of Piccadilly Circus help?...

    Song???

    For me it'd be Bad Boys by Inner Circle. Everytime COPS comes on TV I think, "Man I wish I was collecting royalty cheques on that".

    Any song:

    Something by the Beatles

    Any film:

    The 2nd True Grit.

    Any time and place in history:

    Midnight on November 9/10, 1989 Check Point Charlie at the Berlin Wall.

    Almost became a reality had the Army guaranteed direct assignment to Berlin Brigade if I reenlisted. They wouldn't so I didn't.
