I'm Unique Just Like Everybody Else, Too!

Swiped from several people whose journals I read. Please correct me if I'm wrong...

Name a CD you own that no one else on your friends list does. I'm going to go with either of the two Animal Logic (featuring Stewart Copeland, formerly of The Police) albums: Animal Logic or II.

Name a book you own that no one else on your friends list does. Any of the 12 volumes of The Interpreter's Bible Commentary Set. I received a used set as a gift from one of the members of my Sunday School class a few years ago. It's an invaluable resource.

Name a movie you own on DVD/VHS/whatever that no one else on your friends list does. Jack Frost. No, not the one with Michael Keaton, but the one with a mutant killer snowman.

Name a place that you have visited that no one else on your friends list has. The reason I decided to participate in this meme is so I would be able to answer this question with Anchorage, Alaska, 'cause I think that's pretty cool. However, after I started typing up my answers I realized that my brother, ccohoon, was also born in Anchorage, so that's not going to work. It's not fair, I tell you -- he was only about six weeks old when we moved! If only we had moved earlier, or he decided to gestate longer.... So now I'm faced with finding a place that I've been that my brother, my wife, or my parents haven't been. That makes it tougher. A lot tougher. I'm going to go out on a limb and hope that none of my local friends who are on LJ have been to Meadows Of Dan, Virginia. I've been up there a handful of times while riding my motorcycle. [Edit: slitterst and sidelobe have been to Meadows Of Dan, so I'm relying on Plan B.] In case someone's been to Meadows Of Dan (please speak up if you have), I'm going to go with something more granular than a city or town, and say The House Of Cash in Nashville (actually Hendersonville), Tennessee. I went there a few months before it closed to the public for good, but I showed up on of the very few days that they were closed -- it was around Thanksgiving. So, I just looked at the house from the road for a bit before going back to Nashville. (Thanks to yarbiedoll for the assist on this question, getting me to think of places I've been on my motorcycle or more granular places than towns.)

I'm least comfortable with my unique place answer, so if you've been to either Meadows Of Dan, Virginia or the House Of Cash, speak up so I can start thinking again.

OK, technically, I own the CD/book/movie with yarbiedoll, but I chose items that were either mine before we were married or were acquired specifically for me.
