One connoisseur, one writer and (I’ll count this as) one television show creator. All of them in the present. I would love to have dinner with connoisseur Anthony Bourdain (from No Reservations, a TV show). He is seriously the most people-person I’ve seen on TV and Twitter. How does he pass his raw crassness as personable? He’s brutally honest (and almost controversial) no matter what culture he’s immersed in. His narration and writing style is brilliant. Clearly, he knows how to hold a conversation. Every dinner party needs an Anthony Bourdain. My next guest of honor at the dream dinner is writer Haruki Murakami. Having read half of his works (6/12), I can tell he’s got an interesting mind and a penchant for merging Japanese and American cultural ideas. I’m sure he and Mr. Bourdain would have no problem rollicking in laughter. The piece-de-resistance is the duo TV show creator, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. It would be unfair to separate the two as they BOTH created the sing-songy Glee and the twisted American Horror Story. I’ve watched both shows and CAN believe that they’re so drastically different. The same minds that conceived a high school coming-of-age story are also just as capable of cranking out disturbing thoughts. These show creators are pure geniuses. One connoisseur, one writer and (I’ll count this as) one television show creator would make up the perfect dinner.
