There was a somewhat recent, though uncredited, teeny remake of this movie. Needless to say, the original was far superior.

This British composer had his only hit in 1918. You've heard it everywhere from "The Right Stuff" to "The Venture Brothers."

Gustav Holst. He had a cosmically big hit called "The Planets"

It's Gustav Klimt's Tree of Life.

I had to hurry to post because I knew Cynner would be all over this one if she saw it first!

But if Vespa's grew on trees, would they be as special??

If you know who this singer, songwriter, musician is you'll find this image instantly. If you don't, well I'd be a liar if I said I had any idea how difficult or easy it might be. Some of my favorite songs are about freaks, clowns and dark carnivals.

(BTW, at a former job one of my titles was "Pop Culture Diva.")

-----------------------------

This should be an easy one to recognize if you know your modern composers, but I also want to know the name of the person who made this image.

Sooooo easy! Philip Glass is the composer, Chuck Close is the artist. My first search was for "glass close" and I got nada. So I added first names and voila!

(You're not going to ding me on this because the color rendering is different for my image, are you??)

A somewhat different image of a beloved "pop culture" figure who also fits with the theme we have going. Somehow he always looks like himself, despite the unusual accouterments in this shot!

Well done! And the hint was for his sound track to "Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence"...a film that starred David Bowie. He's and Academy Awards-winning, Grammy-winning, Golden Globe-winning composer.

Haha. Errr, you probably don't want to know how I found him, then. "Japanese composer." I found his pic on page 2 or 3, googled his name and found that specific picture. Razz emoticon

This 2007 mod rock album shares its title with a posthumously published novel. The album is critically praised, while the novel is generally overshadowed by the deceased author's only other novel.

Did you alter the pic in any way other than adding the Vespa at the bottom? (Blacked out the background, maybe?) I'm only running across one black-background version of this thing and it's definitely not this pic.

Oh damn! I LOVE what you've done with this image! I didn't even want to look for the original...yours is perfect!

But I found it anyway...The Great Depression. Maybe this one will only be the Moderate Depression.

Thanks to a 100,000 % annual inflation rate, authorities in Zimbabwe have begun introducing mega bank notes (as if that's the solution).

The market value of the $50,000,000 dollar Zimbabwean bill? A whopping $1 US.

By the way, Quip...I think giving away free Vespas would be a great way to stave off another Depression....after all, how can you be depressed when you're riding a Vespa?!?

Well while we are on the subject of famous people and institutions of higher education.

We found out that this former president of a Nordic country and Board of Trustee of our fine institution was just recently awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
