GROUP: R. E. M.
SOLO MUSIC ARTIST: Peter Gabriel? Not sure.
SINGER: Mark Hollis from Talk Talk
SONGWRITER: Solo? Not SongwriterS? Marc Bolan probably has the record for writing most songs by himself that I love.
GUITARIST: Jimmy Page
BASSIST: Geddy Lee
KEYBOARDIST: You know, it probably is Tony Banks; he's flawed and not a virtuoso, but he's set so many great keyboard backdrops and melodies that I'd have to pick him. Emerson and Wakeman made too much crap.
DRUMMER: Stewart Copeland
PRODUCER: George Martin?
MOVIE: National Lampoon's Animal House
ACTOR: Every actor is inconsistent. I mean, I wanted to name Aaron Paul but like I said he hasn't been in a lot of very good movies yet. My all time favorite performance in a movie is Jeremy Irons in Dead Ringers but I'm no expert on Irons' work.
DIRECTOR: Martin Scorsese, I guess
BOOK: Blood Meridian
AUTHOR: Cormac McCarthy
VISUAL ARTIST: That guy who made those weird public optical illusions based on what looked like gigantic fruit roll ups pasted onto buildings at weird angles so they'd form shapes when you looked at them from the right angle. I can't find him or remember his name. *searches* Felice Varini (see above)
COMEDIAN: Chris Rock
Ben Garrison Bill Watterson
