Poll question: Battle of the Klaus': Klaus Nomi vs. Klaus Kinski
Edited on Sat Jan-29-05 02:12 AM by MrScorpio
One's been dead of over 20 years and the other one is just plain missing

Pick your favorite weird German

Klaus Nomi


Klaus Kinski

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. Nomi was great!
A true singer and performance artist in the Laurie Anderson league!

2. Nomi


It's a lock; Klaus Nomi had cartoon hands, and recorded the best-ever version of "Ding Dong the Witch is Dead".

How could poor Klaus Kinski measure up to that?


You could have included Klaus Barbie and Klaus Flouride in your poll, too.

4. Hmmmm...
Klaus Flouride is arguably "good", but he's American, not German. Plus, he voted against Jello Biafra, so maybe he's not that "good", after-all.

5. I'm still sitting here in a corner of your bar...
with a can, a can(!) of real (real) Budweiser, while all of your other guests are served well, but I don't complain, I wanna be part of the party:

I'm voting for Klaus Kinski: when he started to take himself serious, he wasn't that good anymore, but the german Edgar Wallace Films with Kinski are fantastic. And funny.
And noone ever had a daughter more beautifull than Kinski.
And he was very good at reading Rimbaud and Franois Villon.

Nomi? I did never really understand the hype about Nomi. Kraftwerk. Yes. Can? Yes. But Nomi.
I leave it all up to you if I get my next real(!) Budweiser in a glass!

I'm fine. What about some Nastassja with the beer?
And then I post everything you want me to post or nothing at all. I'm still obsessed with that strawberry-mouth.
Prosit!
Too demanding?

O.K. You're the Dude!
