okayokay, i'm with ya on most of these, but there are a few i take exception to:

3. Hulk Hogan or Ric Flair? pshaw -- it's all about The Ultimate Warrior!!<

21. Peter Tork or Mike Nesmith? i gotta go with Peter, dude... he's like the Harpo Marx of the Monkees. [at least they didn't offer Davy as a choice....]

30. Sword and sorcery or elves-in-the-city? yeh, i know elves in the city is SO played out, but i'm a sucker for urban fantasy.

everything else, though -- word. =)
