Daves rule the world

There are no shortage of dinner party memes, and sadly most people can’t get past inviting Jesus Christ and Karl Marx to break bread with them. I, however, realise that ‘Dave from Albury’ readers expect more (or less, depending on your value system) from your favourite blog.

So which Daves would you have at your dinner party?

Well obviously you’d start with Dave from Albury, every dinner party needs a loud, opinionated blogger who’s opinion of his own importance is completely out of sync with reality. Next you’d add Dave Grohl, is there any other Dave who has been part of two of the most influential bands of the last twenty years? David Bowie gets an invite of course, he really was a pathfinder for all things Dave and continues to hold a special place in our hearts.

Moving on from music to TV we have to send an invitation, first class mail, to David Duchovny. While the broader world may have embraced him as Fox Mulder, true Dave aficionados lapped up every moment of his performances in Twin Peaks as special agent Denise Bryson. Twin Peaks is arguably the most outstanding TV series in living history, and it is, obviously, a Dave product, representing the vision of David Lynch. We can’t live in the 90s forever of course, so David E Kelly would no doubt be checking his mailbox hourly awaiting his call-up. As forgettable as Ally McBeal was this Dave has well and truly secured his place in popular culture via Boston Legal, he’s a must have.

If you want to talk old school TV Daveism though, you also have to acknowledge the amazing contribution to popular culture made by your friend and mine, David Hasselhoff. Knight Rider alone is enough to cement Dave into the fabric of our lives, but the Hoff wasn’t prepared to rest on his laurels and bought Baywatch to the world, typical of the Dave desire to improve the world that we live in. Of course, if we want to stretch the timeframe involved in our Dave appreciation it makes sense to ask along David Boreanez, whose most famous role was a two hundred year old vampire

Moving on to the silver screen we have David Nivin, who single handedly won the Second World War four times over, typical of the commitment we expect from Daves.

I haven’t yet touched upon the biblical Davids who any right minded individual would want to spend time with, but I think it’s becoming pretty clear that if you are hosting a social gathering of any significance you simply cannot get things underway without a contingent of Daves.

I’m available at a reasonable rate every second weekend.

  1. Gawd, you’re bloody hopeless. I thought I told you not to write such cr@p.

    Now, go and replace all those Daves with JR, and I’m in!

  2. Dave you need help. Attempting to elevate your status by associating yourself with ‘famous’ people simply because (by sheer accident) they happen to have the same Christian name as yours is a sure sign of low self esteem.

  3. Listen Ray, I realise that you are still bitter that the Bright Chamber of Commerce wouldn’t support your idea of holding a “Ray Pride March”, that the “Ray Rights” movement has almost run out of steam and the conservative right are falling all over themselves to belittle the “Ray Lifestyle”, but there’s no need for the type of petty jealousy you’re displaying.

  4. Good Lord, that’s frightening.

    However it’s not me because:

    That bedhead is far too effeminate,
    White furniture would not be of any use in our home as it would end up filthy,
    I would never be allowed to sleep in (that’s mrsdaves’ job),
    If by some strange twist of fate I did end up in bed during daylight hours I would be besieged by Buster Boy and the Troll Princess,
    I don’t yet own an X-Box 360 or a PS3.

    Which is not to say that I’m not insanely jealous of anyone who did spend most of the day in bed after GTA was released.

  5. I was tempted to do a “S.A.B.” on it Dave, but I thought I might leave that to you. It could be an interesting post.
