The Normblog Posterity Poll

Norm explains the rules of his poll here. The idea is that if humankind were to die out, which artists should represent the best of what we have achieved? Twelves votes spread over 9-12 categories this:

1. Poet
2. Playwright
3. Novelist
4. Composer
5. Jazz musician
6. Rock or pop star/group
7. Country music ditto
8. Movie director
9. Painter
10. Photographer
11. Sculptor
12. Architect

OK, here goes:

1. Poet - TS Eliot
2. Playwright - Shakespeare, Tom Stoppard
3. Novelist - Jane Austen
4. Composer - Beethoven, Wagner
5. Jazz musician - Thelonious Monk
6. Rock or pop star/group - Frank Zappa, Nordman
7. Country music ditto - transfer to 2
8. Movie director - Chuck Jones
9. Painter - Durer
10. Photographer - transfer to 4
11. Sculptor - Andy Goldsworthy
12. Architect - transfer to 6

Thanks to Lisa for tipping me off to the existence of this poll.

P.S. As far as I can see there is no facility on Norm's blog for leaving comments, so I have emailed my list to him. Maybe it's my broswer. Maybe it's his blog setup. Whatever. You may need to do the same. What? Of course you're going to enter. You have, after all, until the end of tomorrow (Tuesday 31 March).

I always forget that Norm is a no-comment blog (as in, because of the material he posts about, and his public profile, he would get far too many trolls clogging the comments box). however, he does really like emails and will solicut responses to his polls that way. Good choices btw!
