Top 10 Cult Stars of 2011
|Andrew W.K. on the set of Destroy Build Destroy|
Musician and game show host Andrew W.K. has turned the art of the party into a philosophy. He spreads his message in the clubs where he plays and on Twitter and his live chats with fans. The same could be said for his game show Destroy Build Destroy, where the explosions are as beautiful as the message.
Last spring, photographer Shannon Cottrell and I visited W.K. on the set of Destroy Build Destroy, where he said that the show helps teach its young audience "that anything you build involves destruction." He added that he loved that the destructions on the set were used "purely for fun, purely for joy."
""One of my dreams is that someday every weapon on the face of the earth will be put into this show and only used for entertainment purposes," said W.K. in our interview. "No killing and shooting, just Hollywood-style special effects."
Partick Warburton is the tall guy that you might recognize from Seinfeld, The Tick and, currently, Rules of Engagement. He has the deep voice that animation fans will immediately recognize from Family Guy and The Venture Bros. He's also the owner of a '69 Dodge Charger, the same car that his character on The Venture Bros. drives, and ardent Pearl Jam fan. But those aren't the reasons why Warburton tops this list.
When I interviewed Warburton several months ago, he brought up the subject of bullying, and his comments were amongst the best that I've heard.
"If we expect kids to not be bullies in school, then the elders in society can't be bullies either."
