But no one made that claim though

Jesus, Slavoj Zizek, Terry Eagleton, John Terry, Kierkegaard, St Augustine, Karl Marx, Noam Chomsky, Voltaire, Martin Luther, Martin Luther King.

I like to think I have a wide range of influences, although I haven't stopped reading/searching, so next year these could all be completely different.

No capitalizations; improper use of punctuation; implies that internet language differs from real language.

I never said he wasn't a capitalist, just that he didn't care for it that much. I quoted an article saying he wasn't because I don't have a handy list of anticapitalist quotes by him, but Adam Smith was more complicated in his beliefs than "FREE MARKET YAY".

I know. He advocated government involvement in education (and healthcare?) among other things. However, I believe that people misquote him regarding some statements that he attributed to the influence of special interests under a mercantilist system.
Anyways, enough about Adam Smith, I don't want to the discussion to degenerate into capitalism bashing/sucking up.

Haruki Murakami
Although you may not matter in the grand scheme of things, the universe is still a wondrous place and you should enjoy the little place of the universe that you inhabit. Also music rocks and so does reading.

You know, I've never read Murakami but I have heard a lot about him. How is his writing and what genre does he write?

You're using the semi-colon incorrectly; those aren't sentences.

There's no need to use semi-colons in that list because the items in the list do not include commas, therefore commas should be used to separate each item.

Let's go way back first.. To Mr. Wizard. I LOVED Mr. Wizard. Likely started my burgeoning interest in the sciences.
Others would include:
Stephen Jay Gould
Carl Sagan
Isaac Asimov

And more currently, Richard Dawkins.

*differently.

Different is not an adverb. I'm only pointing this out because of the anti-British mood portrayed by your post.
Hey, look. Sigs are back.

Noam Chomsky's up there. Outside of politics, Ernest Hemingway and John Steinbeck.

And Theodore Roosevelt. Probably my biggest single influence since reading The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt in high school.

I forgot to mention Ronald Reagan, who had great ideas about American exceptionalism that have been largely borne out by history (winning the world wars, the Cold War, etc.)

Stravinsky.

Reading The Poetics of Music effectively shaped the entire way I think about, experience, and write music.
"Do we not, in truth, ask the impossible of music when we expect it to express feelings, to translate dramatic situations, even to imitate nature?"
