And that is something to celebrate.
The blogfest asks us to answer four simple questions about Alex Cavanaugh. Although the man is an enigma, I carefully read every single post he's made in the last two years and used psychology, sociology, astrology, and a little biology in order to draw more concrete conclusions about this man in an effort to chip away at the myth behind the man.
So here we go!
1) What does Alex look like?
This is easy. Since we know he loves rock n' roll, and I saw quite a number of references to him playing an electric guitar, Alex is a dead ringer for Eddie Van Halen. Long dark hair, denim jeans, silly grin on his face, and an electric guitar in hand. I used skills that are normally employed by criminal illustrators in order to render this drawing below:
2) Who could play Alex in a documentary?
Although he looks just like Eddie Van Halen, the rock star couldn't play Alex in a documentary because #1 the guy cannot act, and #2 he's too old. I think Ewan McGregor looks just like him thought. So that would work!
3) Who does Alex remind you of?
Hmmm...I was going to say David Lee Roth, but I'll go with Eddie Van Halen for some strange reason. The name just popped into my head. Very random. They are both maestros at what they do, their talents are out of this world, so that's what comes to mind.
Did Eddie Van Halen ever don a ninja costume on stage?
4) Flash fiction using these words:
Cavanaugh, Ninja, IWSG, Cosbolt, Guitar
I decided to be VERY original and whipped this out of thin air:
It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents on Alex Cavanaugh's Cosbolt fighter — except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent ninja-like gust of wind which swept up the streets, rattling along the housetops of bloggers finishing their IWSG posts, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the ignited electric guitar Alex played and struggled against the darkness.
Thanks Alex J. Cavanaugh, for all you do!
