I'm from Luxembourg. Which is, in fact, rather small...so my choice is somewhat limited. Nomnetheless, I found some people:

the good ones:

Claus Cito. He created this beautiful statue called "Gelle Fra" ("The Golden Woman") which is situated in Luxembourg-City and symbolizes our independance.


Robert Schuman. Well, in fact, he was French, but he was born in Luxembourg. He is one of the intellectual fathers of the European Union.



Can't think of anyone else right now. More later. Maybe.

Ah, Portland.


Gus van Sant


Matt Groening


Sleater-Kinney


Mayor Vera Katz


Sci-fi novelist Ursula K. LeGuin


Performance artist/filmmaker Miranda July


Todd Haynes (pictured w/ pal and co-conspirator Julianne Moore). He adopted Portland, but we adopted him, too, so...
""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

Ah, Portland...


But you're in Seatle now, so you need to at LEAST mention Jim Woodring.

That chapter in Franken's book was pretty heartbreaking.

I know I already won, but since I cut off some of the people I'm proud of from Ontario, here's a few more along with those I'm NOT proud of. Enjoy.  :)


Of the Daily Show.




Elwy Yost (comparable to James Lipton of the Actor's Studio)


Neil Young


Eric McCormack


Howie Mandell


Alanis Morissette

And now for 3 more big Hollywood names:



Norman Jewison, Walter Huston, and David Cronenberg.

And now for the people I'm not proud of:


Corey Haim


Sum 41


Avril Lavigne

And finally...


Peter Jennings

Okay, so you don't like Peter Jennings, but you like Howie Mandel?  Gotta be a story behind that one.

Well Mandell has done a lot of voice work for shows and does comedy at Yuk Yuk's, which I do from time to time as well. So I look up to Mandell for being really funny still, even though he looks like a freak now.

Jennings is just a Republican ass-kisser.

So you do stand-up?  That's cool.  You should post a video of your routine sometime.  As for Mandel, just don't ever see any of the bits he does for Leno.  He's like a "not poor" man's Tom Green, but half as funny and almost as annoying.

You're probably right, just surprised to see it is all.
