    Help me identify some pics

    Hi all. I'm participating in a web scavenger hunt of sorts. Anyone know what any of these are? ie who the people are? what these buildings are and where? what guitar this is, etc. Thanks!

    #2 character Buffalo Bill in "Little Big Man"

    #4 overhead view of DisneyWorld under construction?

    #5 aerial view of Warner Bros.?

    #6 obviously part of a guitar

    The rest...no clue. But #7 resembles a rock star I probably should know.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    #7 David Bowie?

    David Bowie doesnt have lips, plus theres no cod piece.
    You sure are cocky for a starving pilgrim.

    Well, the contest is over. I didn't win. Darn.

    The guitar is a Fender Telecaster Deluxe.

    The caricature is of someone named Tom Wait. Never heard of him.

    A few of the pics are Bill Gates compound, The Matterhorn at Disneyland and the roof of the Mall of America.

    Thanks for the help.

    Yes, Tom Waits. Never heard of Tom Waits? Where have you been?

    Start with The Heart of Saturday Night. Then Nighthawks at the Diner.

    Downtown Train... Jersey Girl .....Ol' 55... Some of the better known hits.
    "Rain Dogs" CD is good. Maybe not for the faint of heart.
    An American Classic.

    Small Change got rained on with his own thirty-eight,
    And nobody flinched down by the arcade
    And the marquees weren't weeping, they went stark-raving mad,
    And the cabbies were the only ones that really had it made
    And his cold trousers were twisted, and the sirens high and shrill,
    And crumpled in his fist was a five-dollar bill
    And the naked mannequins with their Cheshire grins,
    And the raconteurs and roustabouts said "Buddy, come on in, 'cause
    'Cause the dreams ain't broken down here now, they're walking with a limp
    Now that Small Change got rained on with his own thirty-eight"

    And nobody flinched down by the arcade
    And the burglar alarm's been disconnected,
    And the newsmen start to rattle
    And the cops are telling jokes about some whorehouse in Seattle
    And the fire hydrants plead the Fifth Amendment
    And the furniture is bargains galore
    But the blood is by the jukebox on an old linoleum floor
    And what a hot rain on Forty-Second Street,
    And now the umbrellas ain't got a chance
    And the newsboy's a lunatic with stains on his pants, 'cause
    'Cause Small Change got rained on with his own thirty-eight

    And no one's gone over to close his eyes
    And there's a racing form in his pocket,
    Circled "Blue Boots" in the third
    And the cashier at the clothing store didn't say a word
    As the siren tears the night in half, and someone lost his wallet
    Well, a surveillance of assailance, it that's what you want to call it
    And the whores hike up their skirts and fish for drug-store prophylactics
    With their mouths cut just like razor blades and their eyes are like stilettos
    And her radiator's steaming and her teeth are in a wreck, and nah,
    She won't let you kiss her, but what the hell do you expect?
    And the Gypsies are tragic and if you want to buy perfume,
    Well, they'll bark you down like carneys, sell you Christmas cards in June, but
    But Small Change got rained on with his own thirty-eight

    And his headstone's a gumball machine,
    No more chewing gum or baseball cards or overcoats or dreams
    Someone's hosing down the sidewalk, and he's only in his teens, 'cause
    'Cause Small Change got rained on with his own thirty-eight

    And a fistful of dollars can't change that,
    And someone copped his watch fob, and someone got his ring
    And the newsboy got his porkpie Stetson hat
    And the tuberculosis old men at the Nelson wheeze and cough
    And someone will head south until this whole thing cools off, 'cause
    'Cause Small Change got rained on with his own thirty-eight, yeah,
    Small Change got rained on with his own thirty-eight

    This is considered a classic????????????????? Surely you jest??? I've been in a lot of places where I didn't speak the language, and what they were saying made more sense than this.......
