Connecting Roger Scruton and Eazy-E

Roger Scruton English conservative philosopher
However, he praised Germaine Greer in 2016, saying that she had "cast an awful lot of light on our literary tradition" by showing the male as the dominant figure, and defended her against criticism for having used the word "sex" to describe the difference between men and women, rather than "gender", which Scruton called "politically correct".

Germaine Greer
In the UK she was voted "Woman of the Year" in 1971, and in 2016 BBC Radio 4's '' Woman's Hour'' placed her fourth on its annual "Power List" of seven women who had the biggest impact on women's lives over the previous 70 years, alongside (in order) Margaret Thatcher, Helen Brook, Barbara Castle, Jayaben Desai, Bridget Jones, and Beyoncé.

It ended on October 7, with Beyoncé bringing out her husband Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, and Serena Williams for the last show.

"That first album [''It's Dark and Hell Is Hot''] is classic, [so he had an influence on me]." He has also stated Eazy-E as an influence in a post by ''Complex'' saying: "I Wouldn't Be Here Today If It Wasn't for Eazy-E."

Best known for his writing in support of conservatism, Scruton's intellectual heroes were Edmund Burke, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, John Ruskin, and T. S. Eliot.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge
* In the 2003 mystery thriller ''In the Cut'' by Jane Campion, Meg Ryan portrays a New York City English teacher named Annie Avery who recites lines from Coleridge's poem “The Picture, or The Lover’s Resolution”.

Ryan's first film of the 2000s was '' Hanging Up'', a Diane Keaton-directed family comedy-drama about a trio of sisters who bond over the approaching death of their curmudgeonly father. Also starring Keaton, Lisa Kudrow and Walter Matthau, the film adaptation of Delia Ephron's 1995 novel received poor reviews from critics.
Following another four-year hiatus, Ryan re-teamed with Lisa Kudrow on her improvisational comedy series '' Web Therapy'', for which she filmed five episodes in 2013.

She graduated from Taft High School in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles where then N.W.A. members Ice Cube, Eazy-E and actress Robin Wright also attended.

Mario Vargas Llosa, a winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, wrote: "[Scruton] was one of the most educated people I have ever met.

Mario Vargas Llosa
A number of Vargas Llosa's works have been adapted for the screen, including ''The Time of the Hero'' and ''Captain Pantoja and the Special Service'' (both by the Peruvian director Francisco Lombardi) and ''The Feast of the Goat'' (by Vargas Llosa's cousin, Luis Llosa). '' Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter'' was turned into the English-language film, '' Tune in Tomorrow''. '' The Feast of the Goat'' has also been adapted as a theatrical play by Jorge Alí Triana, a Colombian playwright and director.

Luis Llosa Peruvian film director (born 1951)
His best-known film, ''Anaconda'', stars Jennifer Lopez, Ice Cube, Jon Voight, and Eric Stoltz. '' Anaconda'' was nominated for multiple Razzie Awards, including worst director, but grossed $136 million worldwide and became a cult film.

Ice Cube
A native of Los Angeles, Jackson formed his first rap group called C.I.A. in 1986. In 1987, with Eazy-E and Dr. Dre, he formed the pioneering gangsta rap group N.W.A. As its lead rapper, he wrote some of Dre's and most of Eazy's lyrics on ''Straight Outta Compton'', a landmark album that shaped West Coast hip hop's early identity and helped differentiate it from East Coast rap.
After a monetary dispute over the group's management by Eazy-E and Jerry Heller, Cube left N.W.A in late 1989, teaming with New York artists and launching a solo rap career.
At 16, Cube sold his first song to Eric Wright, soon dubbed Eazy-E, who was forming Ruthless Records and the musical team N.W.A, based in Compton, California.

In an Intelligence Squared debate in March 2009, Scruton (seconding historian David Starkey) proposed the motion: "Britain has become indifferent to beauty", and held an image of Botticelli's '' The Birth of Venus'' next to one of the supermodel Kate Moss.

Moss also supports the Elton John AIDS Foundation, the Hoping Foundation, the Lucie Blackman Trust, Make Poverty History, Comic Relief and Homes of Hope.

Elton John
Following the deaths of Ryan White and Freddie Mercury, John established the Elton John AIDS Foundation in 1992, and a year later he began hosting his annual Foundation Academy Awards Party, which has since become one of the biggest high-profile Oscar parties in the Hollywood film industry.
At a 2022 concert in Indianapolis, John said he cleaned himself up after spending time with the family of Ryan White.
In April 1990, John performed his 1968 ballad "Skyline Pigeon" at the funeral of Ryan White, a teenage haemophiliac he had befriended.
