A. Carpe Vitam -- Seize Life
A. A life clear of distractions to pursue what matters most to me.
A. According to my Top 25 Most Played list on iTunes, they appear to be "The Crane Wife 3" by The Decemberists, "Over My Head" by The Fray, "I Still Remember" by Bloc Party, "Hey Hey Girl" by The Virgins, and "Wave of Mutilation" by the Pixies.
A. Ozymandias in The Watchmen
A. Turning down an in-person interview with Johnny Cash to go out on a date to see a Semisonic concert. This happened in 1996 or 1997, and I think even the members of Semisonic would agree I made the wrong choice.
