Okay, for a college assignment I have to create a website about any public figure of my choosing. I want to pick someone weird, obscure, interesting, you get the idea. Something that will be funny.

So, who does UG think is the weirdest/most obscure/most interesting famous person around? Because, quite frankly, I'm fresh out of decent ideas..

I think that Josh Homme is pretty obscure to the normal person, and is quite funny. And thinking about his music and his Kyuss lyrics, i think hes a good choice. Maybe try Bumblefoot or Buckethead. Buckethead is rather obscure, is interesting, but idk about how much info u can get on him.

Does it have to be a real person or can it be an imagined one like from a movie, book, cartoon etc.? If it can be a character pick Master Chief or one that everyone recognizes.

I second Josh Homme. He's a friggin' hilarious guy with a contagious personality. He's like the Mitch Hedburg of rock n' roll.

How about a website about your favorite guitarist? If I had to make one for a class, I would surely make a tribute website for Tony Iommi.

It has to be a real person. And not necessarily a politician/academic (for everyone else). Anyone you can think of..

James Booker- a bipolar, schizophrentic, homosexual, one eyed, heroin-addicted piano genius from New Orleans who is criminally underapreciated. His playing style is somewhere between blues, classical, R&B, jazz, rockabilly, salsa, folk, and cajun/zydeco.

How about Quentin Crisp?
Quentin Crisp (December 25, 1908–November 21, 1999), born Denis Charles Pratt, was an English writer, artist's model, actor and raconteur known for his memorable and insightful witticisms. He became a gay icon in the 1970s after publication of his memoir, The Naked Civil Servant, brought to the attention of the general public his defiant exhibitionism and longstanding refusal to conceal his homosexuality.
Being born on the same day as Jesus Christ didn't help either. It is said that among cirtain circles he was viewed as the anti Christ, because of his birthday and his hedonistic homosexual lifestyle.
He lived in the Hotel Chelsea in New York at the same time that Sid Vicious killed Nancy Spungen there and The Police wrote "Englishman In New York" about him.
His flat was filthy with dust covering everything up to a centimeter thick and he once said of it 'After four years, the dust doesn't get any worse, so why bother dusting?'

Other quotes credited to him are;
'If at first you don't succeed, failure may be your style.'
'A lifetime of listening to disco music is a high price to pay for one's sexual preference.'
'Never try to keep up with the Joneses...drag them down to your level. It's cheaper!'
'The time comes for everyone to do deliberately what he used to do by mistake . . . If you are effeminate by nature, you have to find some way of telling the world that you know you are, otherwise they keep telling you.'

One of the worlds greatest eccentric characters, very rarely talked about nowadays, but with a full and rich history that you could easily exploit.
You want weird? You want obscure? You want interesting? He's your man.
