If you think Andy Warhol’s line, “Everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes” is overused, you’re not alone.
In 1979, Warhol himself said, “I’m bored with that line. I never use it anymore. My new line is, “In fifteen minutes everybody will be famous.'”
I will now present my most recent claim to fame.
The very boss Kristopher Dukes asked me to compile a wish list for ThisNext. Here it is. As you will see, I’m trying to take my case for fish feet to a wider public. While I worked on my list, I Googled “fish shoes” once again and found these elegant goldfish-heel men’s shoes on PimpCostumes.com.
I need to meet these two. I know Coco and I will be able to bond while talking about custom-made ass jewelry.
You think your life would be changed by fame, but I just found out that I was chosen for “15 minutes of fame” on Iqons on October 22 and never knew. Clearly I need to log on to that site more often, but it’s so hard to keep up with the blog, everyone else’s blogs, all the social networking sites, etc. I know, I know…famous people like me shouldn’t complain about the little inconveniences of celebrity.
Someone who didn’t miss her 15 minutes of fame was Warhol superstar and drag queen Candy Darling. Rhiannon posted about Candy on Friday. I have My Face for the World to See, published in 1992 by a friend of Candy’s. It is a mix of Candy’s writings, drawings and photos presented as a girlie pink diary complete with lock and key. You can find the book on Amazon and eBay. Here are some photos of my copy. Click the images to supersize them.
