The unofficial random Triva thread.......

I can google porn, and get whatever I want on command, and am damned good at that. But even those websites have sub categories. 

I am stuck on "Secretary of". 

My best searches so far are only getting me 3 presidents. You are looking for 4.

So please, give me a horse head in my bed and make it obvious. I'll also settle for a dead hooker.

Ok, Boru got the Obelisk/Caligula question correct.

But my second question has not been answered.

"What Watergate Operative, later convicted graduated from Fordham University in 1952". Since too much time has passed, I will give you all the answer, "The answer is, G. Gordon Liddy."

And Gawdzillla, I am still working on the Cabinet question, but google is not that forgiving.

The answer is...Stimson.

Quote:What was the SECOND video ever played on MTV? The first was "Video Killed The Radio Star", but I am asking for the video that followed it.

The answer is...Pat Benatar's  'You Better Run'.

Ok, and once you correctly answer a question, you respond with a new question to keep the thread going. Don't make me drink more beer.

Crap, I missed that post. Sorry. Just went back, It was such small text in a big post. You got that right too. 

But still, ask a new question.

RE: The unofficial random Triva thread.......
New question:

In addition to being a multi-award winning actor (comedy and drama), this person plays piano, drums, guitar, harmonica and saxophone and is a vocalist of no small skill (s/he has released several well-received solo albums and collaborations) and is a best-selling novelist.

Name this person.

That's a good one. Problem is, lots of actors have their hands in music too. But I'd also guess even given that most are not best selling novelists.

Color me stumped. Google is giving me little on that too. But one link put "Alice Cooper" in as both a musician an author, but that doesn't sound right because he is not a primary actor, although he has produced music, acted and written books. So I am guessing that was not close to correct.

This person is know primarily as an actor.  Sorry, I should have been clearer about that.

Sorry, what did you mean by 'color stumped me'?

"Color me stumped" is admitting you gave me a hard question. I am stumped.

Famous artists, be they actors, comedians, musicians, writers are rarely recognized for all those things at the same time, while many do try to dabble in other arts other than what they are primarily known for.

For example, Alice Cooper has sung, and acted and written. Madonna has also sung and acted, while I cant speak of anything she has written. Steve Martin has done mostly comedy, but plays a variety of instruments, although I don't know about his writings. You are looking for a primary actor, right?

My bad, I misread why you typed.

And the person I have in mind isn't merely 'dabbling'.  If the acting thing goes toes-up, this person could have a successful music career.
