You may or may not have noticed, but over the last 24 hours, my silly little Kreayshawn game went…
People are telling me that when I first told them my idea, they knew this would happen to me, but even so, nothing can prepare you for this. Nothing. Not when all this attention comes so very quickly, and has more to do with being in the right place at the right time with a cute idea than a lifetime of hard work (although I think that considering the idea that the meandering pastiche that has been my life up ’til this point has been leading me towards something all along – maybe even this very strange, very cool place here – can only be good for my anxiety battered psyche).
So, I want to keep a record of some of my press, especially from the legitimate media over the next “15 minutes,” so I can tell my grandkids that their grandma was so super-cool, Rolling Stone knew her name…
OK, Rolling Stone dot com…
It’s not quite the cover of the Rolling Stone, but it’s still pretty super-cool (even if they did call me a “SUPER FAN,” conjuring up images of creepy shrines and tacky homemade t-shirts :/ thanks guys).
I’ll probably be updating this post as I see fit, and I’ll probably put these links somewhere more permanent too – like an actual press/media page. Crazy, right?
