Ok – I’ll start Steven King – for allowing me over the years (especially during turbulent teenage years) to recognize rational and irrational fears and confront them and if they could not be destroyed, learn how to contain them. For those of you who would like a start – suggested reading: “IT”. Christopher Reeves – May he rest in peace. Probably the closest person planet Earth got to a real superhero. His values and achievements on and off the screen are those that show the best parts of what it means to be human – thanks Chris.:bows: Ronald Reagan – For him I contribute my conservative roots pulling me from a bias apolitical lefty – at least on a political perspective. There is much I disagreed with as far as his policies were concerned, but at least he held the reigns and acted like a commander and chief and brought our country forward. Eminem – My favorite white-guy. Love or hate him, the man says it as it is.

[SIZE="1"]...Can I say Hitler?

Haha, I'm sooo just kidding. Aren't I cute, though?

Maynard James Keenan He is probably one of the most talented musicians and lyricist I have ever heard. Every song he touches is pure gold and even the music videos for Tool, as strange as they may seem to you, have so much symbolism and meaning to whatever the song is about. Besides all that, he's a genius, being a mathematician and a (very funny) comic.

J. K. Rowling I admire her because she has written one of my favorite series of books and beside that she turned a lot children towards reading. Reading is one of the most important things you could ever learn to do and learning to enjoy it when you're a child is important also.

When I think of some more I'll post them up but for some reason my mind's drawing a blank.[/SIZE]

I cannot really say that I admire anyone I have met in person or any figure in the news or whatever. I only admire my sweet mullet!

Dwight D Eisenhower- He led the Allied forces to victory in Europe.

Pope John Paul II- Not for religious reasons, but just because I think he was a truly great man who did much to change the world.

Mother Teresa and Ghandi for basically the same reason as John Paul II. I think they were two people who, religion aside, did much to help people.

Chuck Yeager- First man to go faster then the speed of sound, plus double ace during WWII. I love flying. Nuff said.

Frank Sinatra- Not for idealogical reasons this time. I just think he is damn awesome.

HAHAHAH. I missed you.

The Red Hot Chilli Peppers - For staying alive this long and making great music the whole time that totally changed my musical preference, and gave my friend a musical sex change after I made him listen to a few tracks. No more BB King for him! MUAHAHAH!

I don't actually admire- look up to many people at all since I am jaded.

No. You used the most obvious joke. And I wanted too. =p The person I most admire is myself, because everyone else fails. :o

I can only admire someone who is as cunning as a fox what used to be Professor of Cunning at Oxford University but has moved on and is now working for the U.N. at the High Commission of International Cunning Planning.

Jason Becker, who was an incredible guitarist and writer until he was diagnosed with ALS (the same thing Stephen Hawking has). He is now fully paralysed and confined to a wheelchair, but still has full control over his eye movement, and of course, his brain. He developed a system where he can communicate and even write music with his eyes. This is a song he composed using his mind and eyes:

YouTube - Jason Becker - End of the Beginning Music Video

I admire him for still being able to write incredible music, despite his paralysis. He hasn't given up doing what he loves, and he is a big inspiration for me.


Yay for cotton mouth!

Syd Barrett - Syd was the creative member of the greatest band of all time - Pink Floyd. He was kicked out of the band because of his drug problems and his insanity, but before that he wrote some damn good albums.

Jimi Hendrix - Jimi was one of the first gods of rock. He was also a black guitarist living in a time where blacks were still discriminated against. Plus, the blues fucking rock.
