Fantasy Dinner Date

If you had to create a list of 10 people, dead or alive, you would love to have a 1-on-1 dinner date, who would make you list, and why?

  1. Quentin Tarantino - (this is the QTA of course! I dare you not to include him)
  2. Billy Connolly - (imagine the stories, you would ache from laughter)
  3. Stanley Kubrick - (was he as ‘nuts’ as everybody says so?)
  4. Richard O’Brien - (the genius behind Rocky Horror, oh how I would pick his brain)
  5. Andy Warhol - (just to hear his voice, I would love it)
  6. Edie Sedgewick - (just to see that animated face as she talks, beyond adorable)
  7. Russell Brand - (because I would do unspeakable things to that man, he is delicious)
  8. Jim Morrison - (no need for a reason, he was amazing)
  9. Samuel L. Jackson - (bad-ass motherfucker)
  10. Sofia Coppolla - (what an inspiration)

    Give it some thought, share your dream dinner date list!

1. Tarantino (We could talk geek for weeks, even for months…We could talk about movies until our mouths run dry.)

2. Adolf Hitler (We would get into heated arguments about philosophy and political, social views)

3. Jesus Christ (I want to know what kind of a person he was, and his viewpoints on several things)

4. Charles Bronson (I would use the same tactic that one of his co-actors used once: NOT SAY A WORD. Bronson will feel the silence is uncomfortable and open up more and more. Then we’d talk movies and wordly wisdoms.)

5. Takeshi Kitano (After finding a translator, we would talk movies, women, humour, art, etc.)

6. Frank Capra (about movies, life in general, the human condition,…)

7. Alexander the Great (politics, philosophy, etc.)

8. William Shakespeare (his life, his work, his viewpoints, witness his genius.)

9. Sylvester Stallone (witness his even greater genius)

10. Shirley Jones (I would bombard her with questions about the Partridge Family TV show, and her life in the business, and as a musical star.)

Haha that is brilliant. I found myself excluding many people due to language barriers and difference in era. Otherwise the list would 1000’s.

My next list will be 10 people I want to kick the shit out of.

Cool topic cherrydarling

  1. Quentin Tarantino
  2. Paul Thomas Anderson
  3. Sergio Leone
  4. Robert Forster (just to hear that voice)
  5. Melanie Laurent
  6. George Lucas
  7. Francis Ford Coppola
  8. Eli Roth
  9. Samuel L. Jackson
  10. Howard Hawks

    I find any list hard to do but these are first ones to come to mind. Subject to change at any moment.

Nice choices!

Well let it be a rule, all changes must be submitted to this thread. Or you’ll get a smacked bum.

HAHA, will do. I’ll probably end up coming in here every morning changing shit cause I’ll think of someone else. Do I have a one track mind or what? Not one religious or political figure in the bunch (even though Buddha was on the short list).

Me either. I chose people that I know would be enjoyable company, hence the amount of comedians.

And people that inspire me. But I’m sure I’ll be the same and it’ll all be different tomorrow haha.

1. Tarantino

3. Tolkien (I just wanna see him smoke on his pipe telling some stories)

4. Buckethead (Insane motherfucking guitarist)

5. George Lucas

6. Goerge Romero

7. John William (he did all the epic scores)

8. Clint Eastwood

9. Richard Stallman

10. Cookie Monster (hella cool monster)

Haha that cracked me up.

Mostly list of amazing directors, and BAM … cookie monster. Good work.

1. Quentin Tarantino (obviously. :smiley: I’d feed him and then we’d smoke a fat spliff and talk about anything he wanted to talk about)

2. Nick Frost (obviously as well. :stuck_out_tongue: I’d cook him my lasagna and we’d smoke a fat spliff and talk about weed.)

3. Edgar Wright (I’d ask him why he must always shout at me, and he’d deny it, and I’d cook him something gross. It’s a love/hate relationship.)

4. Ronald Reagan (before or after his mind went, either way would be mighty interesting)

5. Bam Margera (I wouldn’t cook for him, we’d just get tanked together and break shit)

6. Robert Rodriguez (I wouldn’t wanna cook for him either, maybe he would cook?)

7. Gordon Ramsay (DEFINITELY not cooking for him :stuck_out_tongue:)

8. Glenn Beck (just so we could bitch about the state of our country)

9. Rainn Wilson (that’s one funny mofo!)

10. Jesus Christ (for Kenner’s reasons, and I would cook for him)

I think I’d just ask Jesus to turn all my water into wine, and then be kindly on his way. HA!

1. Quentin Tarantino (for obvious reasons, though I might be uncomfortable talking about cinema with him, I’d feel like Paris Hilton talking to Freud or something like that)
