* ''MoreInformationThanYouRequire'' has a minor subplot about a boy who realizes his neighbour is actually (a fictionalized version of) J.D. Salinger. Salinger tells the boy he's working on a sequel to ''Catcher in the Rye'', but he's so culturally cut off that he doesn't realize that having Holden Caulfield attend [[Literature/HarryPotter a school of wizardry]] has [[ItsBeenDone already been done]].

* Hitoshi Akamatsu, who created ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' and worked on the three original games, has vanished off the face of the Earth. Even his name was unknown to fandom for many years, and many people who worked at {{Konami}} at the same time claimed to have never met him. (This seems to have been the case with many of the members of the original Castlevania team, however the rest of them have other credits and didn't just fade out of sight like Akamatasu did.)

* A long stretch of time passed by between the release of normally low-profile SteelyDan co-founder Donald Fagen's 1982 solo debut ''The Nightfly'', and its 1993 followup, ''Kamikiriad'', upon which Fagen largely laid low aside from the occasional song written for a movie soundtrack ("True Companion" from ''Film/HeavyMetal''; "Century's End" from ''Film/BrightLightsBigCity''), very sporadic songwriting for other music acts (Diana Ross, Manhattan Transfer, Yellowjackets and Jennifer Warnes, most notably) and the occasional live concert performance (usually charity shows in New York City). He began performing again with the "New York Rock'n'Soul Revue", a blues and jazz-based tour that occasionally saw him revisit some SteelyDan classics, in the late [[TheEighties 1980's]], and penned essays for ''Premiere'' magazine. After reuniting with Steely cofounder Walter Becker for ''Kamikiriad'', the duo assembled a new band, went on the road as SteelyDan (their first tour since 1974) and have both (separately and together) kept a higher profile and constant touring ever since.
