I'm getting the sinking feeling that everyone knows who they are now.
I too have that same sort of feeling, but at the same time I am glad for their success. Sinking feeling because all the notoriety means the end of small clubs and such, the advent and continuation of larger non intimate venues. Sinking because they may not be able lead a normal life. They may not be able to just pop into a Burger King or Pig n' Whistle, or just go to the movies or 7/11 or just take a walk in the city, or take in a gallery opening. Notoriety can suck. I'm sure there are many places around the globe where they can do these things, but here in Amirica, it's getting less and less (I'm assuming). Maybe not though - maybe we have them so 'on the brain' we see them as being larger than they are.
