The top 100 PFA figures of all time

The self-aware PFAs that we are, we took a step back from our category and tried to think of the 100 public figures you've just GOT to know if you want to be a pretentious fuck. These can be artists, writers, musicians, filmmakers, actors, thinkers, politicians, whatever.

I even went so far, tonight, as to rank them in a top 100, VH1-style countdown. Since Emily and I thought of way more than 100 last night, I had to cut a bunch, and of course I didn't remember them all. So consider this a prelimarily list. Here's where you come in: Check the list out, enjoy it, and e-mail me back with your suggestions of who we left out. Feel free to gripe about the order too, though I think it's pretty impossible to contest #1.
