    No, not Wheatley, especially since I had to look Wheatley up to find out what a Wheatley is

    If you are not alive (in the strictest sense)... are you a fictional character?

    Sorry guys, I was thinking in the figurative. I guess I threw everyone off. I meant in this day&age no one is really dead as long as the media is still interested

    No, not Hall9000, and no, not a fictional character either.
    I was, for the most part, a real person

    Not really. I just had a hunch... and if this person was blue-eyed it would have ticked another box to suggest I was on the right track. But obviously not, lol..

    Next question:
    Are you American?

    lol, what does it mean to be a real person, for the most part? (Rhetorical question, but you have to be one, or the other! Either you are real, or you're fictional ).


    If you were real ... you're male ... and you think you're a musician (and what's up with the quote on the "I"?) ... and you're American ... and you're not alive any longer ...

    I'm still not sure about the "I" thing, but...

    Are you Tiny Tim?


    (and yeah, c'mon, fellow members, get in on the act, wouldjya?! )

    Yeah, some of the answers are not very decisive.

    So, are you famous for something which has nothing to do with music, per se?

    real
    Well, just think about all the meanings for real! For instance, in the USA some cheeses called "real cheese" but they are actually processed cheese. The same idea can be applied to a "real" person too.
    Yeah, some of the answers are not very decisive
    That's just me putting in my own feelings about the person you're supposed to guess.
    I'm going to have to investigate this further.
    So, are you famous for something which has nothing to do with music, per se?
    Don't think too hard along these lines. Musician means having musicianship, the ability to make music, in that sense, YES, I am a musician. But usually calling someone a musician implies the ability to play an instrument or instruments, in that case, I an NOT an instrumentalist.
    That should clear up the musician thing. Again, it's my dim view on the state of music in general and who I am supposed to be playing specifically

    And yes, Viktoria's check list is good! (10 extra credit points for you Viktoria )
    I'm going to include this for a running tally as we go-

    Damnit, Dave, I gave you an easy one to start off with, and even that you managed to make way more difficult than it has to be

    I can tell you're a musician

    I guess that was a *no* on being Tiny Tim, then?

    And man, sounds like you're really down on yourself

    I said I was bored didn't I? I had to have some fun for myself too!

    Tiny Tim
    Sorry Hylden, excellent guess, and BTW, I'm a BIG fan of Tiny, or at least his MASTERFUL first album!!! (No, I'm not kidding, I really dig that album!!!)

    THE BORG (Weren't they American
    No, not Borg, and they're not American, they're republicans!

    I demand cookies instead!
    Uh....
    Are you Michael Jackson
    Yes, Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled nose jobs, I guess I am!
    Nice one Viktoria!!! Not only do you get cookies,

    And a BIG trophy given to you by MJ himself...

    But you also get a free kiss from our late but not forgotten pop star!!!

    This was BIG fun for me, thanks Driber. I found every question and answer was a loaded one with so many different ways to answer!!!

    Just to clear up a few things...Driber said I could...
    I don't care very much for MJ, or feel he's very deserving of the title King Of Pop, in case you guys couldn't tell.
    musician
    Was he? I'm sure he could play one or two instruments after so many years in the business, but he's not known for his playing abilities. And to sing like he does requires skills, to be true. But not necessarily musical skills, you wouldn't need a lick of musical training, just good pitch and the ability to project. Most of what he did was stylistic, stuff you pick up by listening to others, not things you need to know to be a good musician, that was my argument there.
    inconvenient time zone
    I didn't think of it until Driber said I was mean, but I guess dead is very inconvenient in a lot of ways! I was thinking of California
    Are you alive
    I kind of meant to MJ fans, he's as much alive in their memories as ever. And especially with media today, you could live LONG after death. How many videos did Tupac make after he died?
    are you a fictional character
    I think it's safe to say when MJ was younger, back in the Jackson 5 days, yes, he was real. But after all the BIZARRE surgeries and the isolated dream like world he inhabited later, can you really say he was "real?" He really did enter fictional territory, and I think he wanted it that way.

    MJ, Pop icon, yes definitely. Interesting? To be sure, he was different.
    But based solely on his music, I'd say middle of the road pop, what made him great wasn't his music, it was his personality and performance skill. If his music had to stand alone, no videos, no glove, no dancing, no photos plastered everywhere and weird details of his life, without all the excitement and mystique of the "icon;" would his music have been nearly so popular?

    OK boys and girls and MJ fans, BACK TO THE GAME!

    Excuse my nerdiness, but it's Borg. "The" Borg implies there are more, when they are one. Just like RPR's beloved cult

    The rules dictate that it's your turn to come up with a name of a celeb and PM it to the last winner (Viktoria, in this case)

    (I want to play, too, ya know! )

    PS. LOVE the award! Nice job, haha
