Hmmmm......I'd like respect from my peers whist alive and fame after death - I want to leave my mark, proof that I was here in some way.

Not overly bothered about a large bank account.....as long as I have enough cash to continue to live the way I am now but whilst doing something that I am passionate about I'd be happy.

i don't know that i actually want to be famous. i want to get published, have a lot of people like my writing and earn enough money to live on but i really don't want lots of people to recognise me. i've always felt sorry for celebrities in that their right to privacy is taken away from them by their so called fans.

I see celebrity and fame as two different things.

me too. the fame is having lots of people know of you and your work, which i'd like, the celebrity status is just yuck, being recognised and swamped everywhere. that's fake and meaningless and i definitely don't want that part.

That's the reason I'd prefer recognition from my peers - people that I look up to to say "I understand what you're doing there, I like it", etc rather than a hoard of people following like sheep.........

That can happen after I shuffle off this mortal coil.

I don't like fame, there are too many prices to pay. Privacy for one. I like my privacy.


























































If anyone makes wanking jokes, you can all go screw yourselves.

Would you rather not be known while alive, but after death be known for generations leaving your family and ancestors with great wealth?

I'd like to spoil my family and friends NOW. Send my son to the best schools, hell, close down Disneyland for the week so we can wander at will. Stuff pseudo immortality. If I became a famous Director people wouldn't follow me around and bug me anyway, they'd just suck up a lot.

I don't need fame...but I wouldn't mind a tidy sum of cash to be getting on with.
