i don't really have a person i look up to and worship in the same sense. but i do look up to people and inspire myself with things they've accomplished. i like to build on myslef so that only i can be my own idol.
Frank Zappa all the way. the guy was out of this world, dude!!! Musical genius, intolerant against drugs in his band, great family man, Frank kept working untill the very last moment of his life. For me, having an idol is the incentive to reach and overcome your aims in life, whatever they are. Thats the point. If the student does not surpass the teacher, then there is no progress. And Frank surpassed his idol ( Edgar Varese) by far.
None, I just beat myself up for better. It doesnt work all the time but I like doing things myself.
But I look up to a lot of people, artists (dA and classical and street), athletes (none in particular...you finish a marathon I'll already look up to you). Some philosophers, but not many. I look to people of accomplishments more.
I just had a really hard time typing that out. Using a foreign keyboard sucks.
well for many years of my life i wanted to be Debbie Harry!
and at the same time i wanted to marry Adam Ant! (only the 80s version, not the '06 Adam!)
does that count?
maybe i'm confusing idol with icon?
but i still think she's amazing, and her image is very iconic
i think my english teacher really opened a few doors in my mind at a key age, and my parents have been really great
then also i guess anyone that creates anything you enjoy (film/art/books/music) could be idolised and that list would just be too long
so i guess there's not one idol now, just creative people in general
must stop i'm really rambling......!!!
it depends on what do you mean by idol. i'd do almost anything for a conversation with Umberto Eco, i'd eat his brain out, i love his way of thinking. but other than that, people are just people, idolising is wrong because everyone has their moments of weakness. even umberto eco
