Welcome to Moorcock's Miscellany

Dear reader,

Many people have given their valuable time to create a website for the pleasure of posing questions to Michael Moorcock, meeting people from around the world, and mining the site for information. Please follow one of the links above to learn more about the site.

Thank you,

  • Which people in reality would you like to meet? (Your top 5)

    Inspired by Yolanda's thread.

    What are the top five people (alive or dead*) would you like to meet?

    (*assuming we could meet the person while they were still alive by magical means or time travel)

    Please list your reasons if you want. :D

    Because this is the Miscellany, I will say, please list your top five besides Michael Moorcock. :D Thanks

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    1) Rudyard Kipling
    2) James Butler "Wild Bill" Hickok
    3) President General George Washington
    4) Arthur C. Clark
    5) General John "Blackjack" Pershing

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    That is a very difficult decision, but if I had only one chance to meet them and had to choose this minute, then I would pick those five, we can expand the game later after we all pick the first five,hehe. :D

    Thanks for playing and enjoy!

    P.S. I would love to meet a bunch of regular folk who never made the history books from the various ages of the world, plus ancestors would be cool as well, religious icons would be cool to study with time travel. :D

    I'm assuming that we can cross language and cultural barriers...

    My first list (off the top of my head, and in no particular order...)

    Buddha
    Jesus (or is that Karl Glogauer? :lol:)
    Newton
    Thomas Jefferson
    Karl Marx

    But only if they were all together. This is my "Dinner Party Mix."

      The cat spread its wings and flew high into the air, hovering to keep pace with them as they moved cautiously toward the city. Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords

        Okay, so aside from Mike and Berry and all my other homies from this forum, I'd like to meet (in no particular order):

        - Chuang Tzu (although he'd probably end up slapping me and storming out after my fifth "Yes, but what I don't understand is...")
        - Ludivine Sagnier
        - Oscar Wilde
        - Michelle Rodriguez
        - John Waters

        Not the deepest of lists, I know. Tra la la la... :)

          Just 5 off the top of my head...

          Charles Darwin
          Galileo
          H. G. Wells (and I have Michael and Dancer's at the End of Time to blame for that one...)
          Phillip K. Dick
          Thurston Moore (kind of met him a few times, but I assume this goes beyond a signature and a few words.)

            After the disasterous attempt I made of talking to KT Tunstall, I'm not too sure I'd be capable of making conversation with these people but here goes.

            Neil Gaiman (who was doing a book signing near to where I live but I couldn't go because of pain in the butt work)
            Brom
            Lord Byron
            Stephen Hawking
            Simon Pegg

              People I'd like to meet are mostly historic, for which I'm inclined toward and all men i'd fight alongside with:

              1. Alexander of Macedonia (the best of the best) :D
              2. Augustus Ceaser
              3. Ganghis Khan
              4. Attila the Hun
              5. Francis Drake

              So, an adventurer, a tyrant, a conqueror, a madman and a pirate - oh, lovely company!

                      Roger Zelazny, David Bowie, and my mother, because I never got to chat with her as an adult. And, I think I'd like to meet my parents when they were my age or younger. And maybe many grandparents going back through time. And possibly potential future children?

                        You already know me Berry. It's a small detail that we've never actually seen each other.

                        Besides, the experience (of seeing me) would be a letdown, I'm sure :lol:, and the other people on your list are far more interesting.

                          Would it be weird to meet one's own self?

                            Depends whether you're expecting it or not.

                            However:
                            -Jimi Hendrix
                            -Mike
                            -Lemmy of Motorhead
                            -Budda
                            and finally
                            -Elric.
