The new meme

From inner_storm and cdpoint:

Name a CD you own that no one else on your friends list does.

Easy. Back in the summer a Macedonian political leader gave me a CD of him singing Macedonian folk songs (and a couple of Elvis numbers). I'd be surprised if anyone else reading this has Trifun Kostovski's greatest hits.

Name a book you own that no one else on your friends list does.

Anatol Lieven's book about America (because it hasn't been published yet).
Ramush Haradinaj's autobiography, A Narrative about War and Freedom. (review)
The Last Castle, by Jack Vance, winner of Hugo and Nebula awards but out of print for years.

Name a movie you own on DVD/VHS/whatever that no one else on your friends list does.

Much more difficult. I did go through a phase of buying discounted comedies on video about a year ago but haven't yet watched them all. I have a suspicion that "You've Got M@il" is the most exotic of these, which gives you some idea.
Probably lots of you have Finding Nemo, but did anyone else bother to get the two-DVD version with the "Exploring the Reef" documentary featuring Nemo, Dory and Jean-Michel Cousteau (dum dum dum dum!!!!)?

Name a place that you have visited that no one else on your friends list has.

I'm currently in Provo, Utah (unable to get back to sleep).
I was in Chişinău, Moldova, earlier this month.
The most sinister places I have ever been were Velika Kladuša, in western Bosnia, and Bratunac, in eastern Bosnia near Srebrenica.

(edited for missfairchild's visits to Chişinău and Bratunac, and djm4 owning the second "Finding Nemo" DVD)

(further edited for cygny and yourownmeretrixowning "You've Got M@il". My video/DVD collection is not very eclectic at all...)
