Man, today was the day for laughing at the concept of “fame”. It’s funny when people you know become well-known. When I saw this cover of BPM with MisShapes gracing the cover, I nearly pooed myself. I couldn’t believe it! What a twilight zone experience.
The article goes on to reveal that the MisShapes are working on a graphic novel for DC Comics Vertigo imprint in addition to their MTV Book deal, and international globe-trotting. It makes no mention as to what the MisShapes will be doing in graphic form–will they be fighting against symmetrical haircuts, or become a super-powerful fashion police troupe? I kid, I kid. Whatever it is, I can’t wait to see it!
In other MisShape-ian news, the Village Voice‘s Tricia Romano has done a piece on the oft-described “blond MisShape”, Jackson Pollis. The kids on Oh No They Didn’t have an extended (and quite heated) debate over whether or not Jackson is “hot or not”.
And in the pure fame as humor department, listen to this Onion Podcast in which a local man is “surprised to hear himself tell Matt Damon he’s a ‘big fan’.”
