PEOPLE TO WATCH IN 2008
Each year we choose a group of People to Watch — creative, talented, successful, newsworthy, influential — who embody the spirit of the creative community.
We pose serious questions on the future of the profession, the health of the economy, the state of planet Earth because, well, it seems the right thing to do. But we know what you really want: the personal stuff.
We generally stay away from the sensational (boxers or brief) and the political (boxers or temple garments).
Very much on the agenda, however, are favorite entertainments and inspirations. Turns out The Office, 30 Rock, Grey's Anatomy, Top Chef and Top Model top the TV charts, along with gone-but-not-forgotten Arrested Development and M.A.S.H.
No shock that Picasso, da Vinci, van Gogh, Warhol and Matisse sit among the pantheon of fine artists, but the inclusion of Alexander Calder and Joseph Cornell provide a refreshing twist.
And movie choices? Can't argue with The Godfather, Pulp Fiction, Spinal Tap, Annie Hall, Breakfast at Tiffany's and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, but, frankly, we were blindsided by The Sound of Music and Willie Wonka.
So, read on for more about music, books, websites, foods, technology and, if you have a spare moment, check out the serious responses, too. They're good and good for you.
