Actor, Athlete or Rockstar

Postby Dan Lambskin » Fri Jul 14, 2006 11:20 am

posted this on the other side too, but i'm bored today

not really sure why, maybe becasue i was drunk, but last night i was thinking...

If you could be an famous Actor, Athlete or Rockstar, which would you pick and why?

...and please no lame "i'd pick X because they would make the most money". let's just assume that you do well enough to make a comfortable living, but just arent the best in your profession.

i think i'd go with Rock Star, just seems like it would be really fun and you could carry on for a long time...plus you can dress however you want and get all kinds of chicks

Athlete would be cool, but the span is shorter. if i was a star athlete, i think i'd want to be a RB or a Closer in Baseball. just something about having all that pressure on you in a big game that would be a rush

Acting is cool too, just not at the top of my list

Edit: forgot 3rd poll option

I almost went athlete because I love sports and that would just be a cool job. However, I had to go rockstar as that had been a dream of mine since junior high. The band never made it out of the garage. Ultimately, there's less expectations and pressure on rockstars than there is on athletes. A rockstar can screw up, an athlete can't.

Man I used to want to be a rockstar really bad. But I gotta go with Athlete.

Less press then rockstars and also I don't think I could do that many drugs anymore.

Plus it would be impossible to have a GF and be a rockstar. Now if I didn't have a GF maybee I'd reconsider.

Man this is tough. Being a professional athlete was always a dream, but now that I'm older and understand more about life then when I was 7...I don't know if I could pass up the rockstar life.

You can do what you want when you want...no schedules. Plan a tour when you want, and even if there's a concert planned you can not show up

Not really a risk of injury

On tour and stuff, you have a bad concert, that's the way it goes...it happens...not in sports

No expectations to behave a certain way, or be a role model

If the media badmouths you, you can record a song like "Get In The Ring" and completely destroy them

Living in Los Angeles, and with this being a movie biz town, the road to becoming an actor just doesn't appeal to me. It was more of like a fantasy of mine when I was about 7 or 8, but as I grew up, it seemed to me that most folks I encountered was an aspiring actor claiming to live in their Ford Pintos. I've never been one to jump on the bandwagon or the in-crowd and so, acting just wasn't in my interest. I've starred in a couple of plays in high school and I must say it's fun being in character, and though I liked it and received a lot of good comments, I just haven't been encouraged enough to consider acting. So, don't want to be an actor.

As for athlete, well, it's always fun to see yourself as the hometown hero who lifted the hometown team to a title, in my view, but I never considered myself to be a top-flight athlete. I'm more interested in martial arts and wrestling (Greco-Roman and Freestyle) and so those were the sports I was involved in growing up, but I haven't pursued it further either. Both are relatively obscure sports too. I wish I grew up in England for some reason to become the soccer wunderkind like a Wayne Rooney was, or in France, as an Eric Cantona, who was one of my idols as a teenager.

So, I'd rather be a rockstar, but not in the mainstream sense. I was in a band in high school as a frontman for a heavy metal band. We were playing old Metallica, Slayer, and Pantera. Quite a rush. My favorite vocalist is Phil Anselmo (along with Bruce Dickinson) and so, at that time, I wanted to pattern my voice like his, and I'd like to believe I've mastered it, but hey, I believe I did his voice justice. I don't care much for the rockstar lifestyle or the fame that comes with it, I just like the adrenaline rush of belting it out with some thrash music as the perfect backdrop to it.

But I'd rather be an entrepreneur over any occupation in the world. I see the game of business as to warranting a person to be an athlete to endure all things that can go wrong and make them all right, but having somewhat of a rockstar attitude, having passion, dedication, confidence, and yes, ego.

I'd want to be a Johan Santana type of athlete. Meaning, a total stud pitcher.
