I wouldn't call them idols, but these are the people that I observe(d) regularly.
Heath Kirchart (skateboarder) - I wrote an essay about Heath's skating in middle school that focused on the way he points his fingers and arms while aerial. It was a large dissertation on his form and style (that's the word) that was making a big impact on me at the time. That's kind of like an examination of modern dance in ways, but I wasn't connecting the likeness until years later. He's like a graceful and powerful hawk on the board.
The fact that Heath is a pioneer in big rail skating is well documented too, you can read someone else's blog about that.
Good outwear too, I appreciate all the marketing that goes along with being a professional.

Bistro ( with respects to the level of maturity i suppose).
Interesting to behold the challenge in tempering the chef's whim versus the public's demand without an owner to show objectivity regularly. That's supreme confidence in ability, no?
I like San Diego chefs too, it's difficult being creative and standing up to the global stage when the lifestyle here is this laid back.
All these people are dead, by the way (RIP):

Norman Walker /// Bernard Jansen (doctors) - Their outlook on diet and nutrition is focused on the mid-20th century. This is an era marked by a huge disconnect in computer technology that we have today. This tends to have me believing that Americans of that era were much stronger physically, pardon the focus on Americans. There's also an entertaining archaic styling to way they wrote about the subject matter that is always entertaining.
