Dane Cook, Jeremy Piven, and Kid Rock.

CAVEAT: I'm only happy about this one because I like to pretend that the ceiling caved in two seconds after this photo was taken killing all three where they stood.

I like this photo, not totally unlikely, but still a whole lot of famous. Saw first on an ILM thread, I think.

Guess with Tyson: Joyce Carol Oates??? I know she's done a lot of writing about boxing, so that one might not be that weird.

Who are they?

Tuomas, Monday, 3 February 2020 06:17 (three weeks ago) link

American singer Joni Mitchell is on the right. Dude looks like a politician.

don't care didn't ask still clappin (sic), Monday, 3 February 2020 06:25 (three weeks ago) link

based on the filename, I'm guessing it's Boulez

StanM, Monday, 3 February 2020 06:29 (three weeks ago) link

Thanks! I was familiar with both of those names but didn't know what they look like.

Boulez I can understand, but do you really expect us to believe that you don't know what Joni Mitchell looks like?

Oh come, on, logging in as Geir or Tuomas must be easy. All you need is to just try password 'Beatles' or 'Genesis' or 'fuckbuddy' and hey presto, you're in.

Boulez I can understand, but do you really expect us to believe that you don't know what Joni Mitchell looks like?

Why should I? Obviously I know she is a fairly well known musician, but I don't own any of her albums nor have I seen any of her music videos (if she has any?), and I've mostly come across her name in music-related books and ILM discussions where there's no photos to show what she looks like.

Tuomas, Monday, 3 February 2020 08:49 (three weeks ago) link

(i am mostly with tuomas here, but there was a massive clue in the image url. i also like the quiz aspect, so i'm torn.)

itt: anglophones baffled that a Finn may not have been exposed to the exact same mildly esoteric cultural figures as them.

toilet-cleaning brain surgeon (pomenitul), Monday, 3 February 2020 09:44 (three weeks ago) link

a Finn who primarily listens to instrumental techno music does not recognise a photo of an old lady who wrote some medium-popular songs forty to fifty years ago

don't care didn't ask still clappin (sic), Monday, 3 February 2020 09:47 (three weeks ago) link

OK, Cap'n Save-a-Tuomas, he does this all the time, it's a shtick, he's not 20 anymore.

(includes digression on farting) (Tom D.), Monday, 3 February 2020 09:57 (three weeks ago) link

Yes, pom, Finns don't know who Pierre Boulez is, they only listen to Sibelius after all.

(includes digression on farting) (Tom D.), Monday, 3 February 2020 10:00 (three weeks ago) link

More like 'Finns don't know what Boulez looks like, they only hang Eero Järnefelt's portrait of Sibelius in their saunas'.

toilet-cleaning brain surgeon (pomenitul), Monday, 3 February 2020 10:04 (three weeks ago) link

he does this all the time, it's a shtick, he's not 20 anymore.

he’s not more likely to know what she looks like 45 years after she was having hits than he was 25 years after she was having hits, tbf

If glumdal had just said who was in the photo, a helpful policy that has been the subject of some discussion itt over the years iirc, I wouldn’t have made A GIANT EMBARRASSMENT of myself by not knowing Pierre Boulez on sight

don't care didn't ask still clappin (sic), Monday, 3 February 2020 10:27 (three weeks ago) link

I agree that the people in the photos should always be named, I always do it. Tuomas' techno teenager from Tampere routine is just a bit silly now.

(includes digression on farting) (Tom D.), Monday, 3 February 2020 10:33 (three weeks ago) link

(btw I'm assuming the photo of Boulez dancing with a Womble has already been posted itt)

What's a Womble?
