For instance Ricky Gervais chose a coffee table book of art and a vat of Novocaine, Stephen King chose the collected poetry of W.H. Auden and a water hammock, and Stephen Hawking chose Middlemarch by George Eliot and creme brulee.
The great thing is that the guests are truly important, interesting people... politicians, authors, chefs, poets, and, of course, actors and actresses.
I have a feeling that if an American network ever chose to rip this show off the first guests would be either Pauly D or Tila Tequila. One can only imagine....
FHM magazine and a bottle of ritalin? The collected poems of Jewel and a Mystic Tan booth?
So I started doing my one of my favorite things... thinking about myself. NO... well YES, but I started trying to decide what I would take with me to my desert island.
This is what I came up with.
1. A Town Called Malice - The Jam
2. Bring It On Home - Sam Cooke
3. Soothe Me - Sam and Dave
4. Atmosphere - Joy Division
5. Blackbird - The Beatles
6. Temptation - New Order
7. Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon and Garfunkel
8. Fairytale of New York - The Pogues
The Count of Monte Cristo - Alexandre Dumas
My pug, Henry... or at least a picture of him.
