GIGS FOR A GUTTER WHORE!

Working, Working on getting my name out into the Universe again. It's not easy. The rules of fame have changed. Infamy is now confused with fame. Nobody knows the difference anymore. If you get recognition for being a Gutter Whore, suddenly everyone thinks you're "famous."
An Example of INFAMY is: Adolf Hitler.
An Example of FAMOUS is: Marilyn Monroe
That's an extreme example but unfortunately nobody understands the difference anymore. The rules of fame have changed. The Octomom is infamous, Lady GaGa is famous...oh wait...she's infamous too...

Now days Gutter Whores (car wrecks)  have claimed their right to be "famous." Some of them are making millions of $$$ to justify popularity. And who am I to complain? Who am I to judge? I'm nobody compared to their earnings. I better deal with the new world of fame or crumble.

In efforts to circulate my name, I've had to go into some trenches to REMIND people of what maybe they might be missing. Every time I perform in the trenches, the people go wild. Sometimes they scream with delight as if to say, "Yes! This is something that we've been missing!" or "Oh yeah we forgot about this kind of entertainment."
I don't think I'm all that special, but I have talent. Just because you have talent doesn't mean, anybody is going to help you or give you anything.
All I can do is try to file my claim on whatever spot I can grab on to now. There used to be a FEW famous people but now the infamous and famous are all thrown into a big sloppy bowl. At the point that you see the beautiful, talented and brilliant Selma Hayek in a BURGER KING commercial, I'd say the definition of fame has changed.

Believe me, it's not beneath me to be a Gutter Whore. I've done it before, I can do it again.
