Gwen Stefani , for being relentlessly herself.
And Louise Brooks for the same reason
Kandinsky, who tried to paint thought itself. He was inspired by clairvoyantly seen images in Leadbeater & Besant's book called thought-forms, published in 1901
( this list is not in any specific order ) Who showed us all we are and can be...
...but what would Brian Boitano do?
No disrespect meant to the Lord of the Rinks. He landed his first triple jump at age 11.
My real skater's inspiration was Kristi Yamaguchi especially in the 1992 Olympics. I truly admire the ice princess's gracefulness. I was usually cast as "the pharaoh's hunting hawk" in ice shows or something similar.
I can't leave out Dieter (DEE-tah) from Sprockets, who characterizes the avant-garde Berlin -Bohemian lifestyle for us all. Touch him. Love him.
D: Welcome to Sprockets. I am your host, Dieter. It has been a very busy week here in Berlin. Jourgen von Keitel's exhibit "Scabs On Canvas" opened at the Schussel Calle, the Gertrude Bromf troupe previewed their performance in wax at the Theater of Unhappiness, and the Berlin wall was dismantled. For the masses the wall's collapse represents freedom and opportunity. But for me, it is a chance to meet the most brilliant countercultural filmmaker in the East, Gregor Voss. Seen here on East German television last year, Voss, the suppressed visionary whose films include "The Dead Coat", "Irritant Number 4", and "Here Child, Finish Your Nothing", he entered the West three days ago, and has agreed to appear on Sprockets and speak with me, his greatest fan. Please welcome Gregor Voss. Welcome to Sprockets, Gregor Voss.
GV: Whoo! Yah, is great to be here, Dieter.
D: Gregor Voss, your presence intimidates me to the point of humiliation. Would you care to strike me?
he's as happy as a little girl
other fun Dieter quotes:
"Genius! By seemingly embracing the clichés of the vest, he is underscoring its excruciating banality."
"Your agony is gorgeous."
"Yes, Ve are doomed and I am filled with remorse, and it is most delicious."
"Sadly, Klaus is limited. But he is beautiful, is he not?"
At Dieter's Dance Party , in response to a record being rated -3 on a scale of 1 to 14, Dieter says, "Sadly, there are no integers on this scale, so your gangly adolescent attempt to be clever has proved futile."
"You are beautiful and angular."
"You disturb me to the point of insanity. There. I am insane now."
Nostradamus, a man very much ahead of his time.
