Today’s assignment in blogging 101 was to follow on from what we published on Monday where we had to use a Daily Prompt as a starting point. Today, we are to explore that same prompt through the eyes of our fellow bloggers.
Although I didn’t want to do that because I fell upon a fellow blogger named Lance Greenfield who for his Monday post, published his dream dinner and I was having so much fun trying to create mine that I lost interest in my initial post (A moment in time…which to be fair was a tad boring and lacked direction).
So here it is, my dream dinner party for 6 of my favourite writers/artists/musicians/other notable figures, dead or alive.
Firstly I would have to invite Beethoven, I am a big fan of his work and his ability to create such diverse pieces of work astounds me, plus, would it be rude being the host to ask him to play a few pieces too?!
Next to Beethoven I would place Queen Elizabeth I, my favourite monarch! She was the last of the Tudors, the creator of the Elizabethan age, she was bold and courageous, extremely well-educated, very tolerant and seemed like such a lovely lady to know. I would most definitely want to ask her what she really thought of her half-sister Mary too!
Now, to the controversial invite, Marilyn Manson, I have loved this guy since I was about 12! Not in an attractive way but more of a psychological way, I find him fascinating. I like many types of music but at heart I am a rocker and Marilyn Manson was my companion throughout my teens up to today and so he has influenced me in many ways, although I would not go so far as to say I am a groupie but definitely a fan. I would question however, his choice to become part of Anton La Vey’s Satanic group.
I would sit Marilyn Manson next to Bruce Lee…who wouldn’t want to meet Bruce?! He is a legend (and annoyingly my fellow blogger Lance told me he actually met him….very jealous!) So Lance I would invite you so that you could chat some more to the very lovely Bruce. I love all of his films and would probably get him to rein act scenes from most!
Finally, I would invite my favourite artist Salvador Dali. His work is mind-boggling, I can not even begin to fathom where he got the inspiration for most of his work and where he started on them! I have all his works in several books and spend a lot of time perusing them.
All in all I think that this is quite an eclectic mix of people and it would be amazing to converse with them all, I really don’t think much food would be consumed at this event but lots of fun would be had by all.
Who would you invite?
