    I came unstuck there. Racecar driving isn't really my field of expertise. And it also goes up to his friendship with Coppola and American Graffitti.

    The end of Pepsi commercials, Thriller would sell even more copies and his leftover tracks would form "Hot Street" album.

    WI Francis Ford Coppola, instead of Keanu Reeves, casts Daniel Day-Lewis as Jonathan Harker in Bram Stoker's Dracula? (Interestingly, he and Winona Ryder, who played Mina in the aforementioned film, starred as an engaged couple in The Age of Innocence and also co-starred in the film version of The Crucible...)

    IMO, Day-Lewis would do better in the role than Reeves did (it helps, of course, that he's actually British; Reeves gave up trying to do a British accent); yeah, he's in his mid-30s, but that hasn't stopped casting directors before...

    And, if Day-Lewis method acts like he's done, he'll probably be remembered for giving a good performance, IMO...

    I wonder what the cultural effects would be of Michael Jackson dying in 2016 rather than 2009 and Prince dying in 2009 rather than 2016 (both with drug overdoses). Not to diss Prince, but I know they're on two different levels of fame, so perhaps this is a question of how would Michael change pop culture by living well into the 2010s

    What do you guys think?
