I just don't get the general public's facination with famous people. Who gives a shit?
Sez the man with Betty Page in his signature.
Well, I would argue that the simple fasination is that famous people are who we wish to become (speaking in terms of Americans in general, it makes no difference if you or I differ) - jeezus, watch VH1 and all you see is half hour programs about how much money celebrities have. Our culture is completely obsessed with celebrities.
I wish I could remember what Bill Hicks had to say about them (I think it was in reference to doing commercials).
...my few brushes with fame include trying to pick fights with The Offspring, Orgy, and someone else (it's been awhile). I also tended bar for the L.A. Guns (but that will only get me old person points, certainly not cool person points).
