Kak o Lak

I always think this makes great fodder for dinner party conversation but I can't think of a time I've actually engaged anybody in it. Sure its a hackneyed concept, I'll give you that, but there needs to be more than just religion or politics to stir up some fussin' and fightin' and hopefully at someone else's house.
I'm at that tender age where CRS rears its ugly head a might too often, so I happen to think its a good idea, although useless, to get these things down on paper.
I like to call this, actually, I just decided to call it All/Most/Some. It's where I try and think of a handfull of people, places and things that I prioritize into the aforementioned categories and the crapstorm that could potentially ensue.
The one caveat is that its interchangable. Anybody, place or thing can fall out of favor or climb up the ladder for any reason at anyone's discretion. If someone has some insane justification for why Bruce Willis ain't even in ANY category, well, there's cause for a dust-up right then and there.
Here is my first ALL list:
Jack Nicholson(sp), Phillip Seymore Hoffman, Meryl Streep, Ed Harris, Sean Penn, Dwight Yoakum, Hellen Mirren, Tim Burton, San Francisco, Emma Thompson, Keith Richards, Emmy Lou Harris, anything Patti Loveless.

MOST anything to do with: Dustin Hoffman, Jeff Daniels, Alan Arkin, John Cusack, Julia Roberts, Allison Krauss, Bungalows, L.A., Christopher Guest, Coen Bros., T-Bone Burnett, Francis McDormand, pedal steel guitars, Willie Nelson, Ryan Adams, Monet, Clint Eastwood and Robert Deniro.

SOME: New York, Nashville, Kate Blanchette, Rick Rubin, Stephen Spielberg, Ron Howard, Stephen Stills, Radney Foster, Alec Baldwin, Steve Buscemi(sp).

Don't be shy, chime in whether your wit me or agin me.
