Aloha Friday #225

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too.

Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

So my question is . . .

Andy Warhol stated that everyone gets 15 minutes of fame. What happened during your 15 minutes?

My 15 minutes of fame happened when my photo appeared in People Magazine for the Vaseline Intensive Rescue Ad Campaign. I had a passenger recognize me while I was working a flight.

    When I was in 4th grade I was on the Kids Club TV show in our city… then recently I was interviewed for CBS Morning Show : )

    How come I never saw a picture of your photo in People??

    I’m hoping that my 15 minutes haven’t happened yet, since I can’t think of anything that would really be considered “fame.” When they do happen, they better be good! :)

    In my 15 minutes of fame, I am dancing. I’ve always wanted to dance.

    When I was younger I sang on TV a few times.

    I’ve done a few different things although I’m not sure any of them are really my “fame”…
    When I was in high school they caught me on camera running down the hall late to class when they were filming for our science teacher winning a state award. It was broadcast to the state.
    When I was in college I participated in a butter sculpting contest that was broadcast from Portland… except you could only tell it was me by my shirt, they cut my head off!
    And finally, I did the parade circuit when I was in high school as royalty for my town so I’m sure I was on TV during the parades for Seattle/Portland/Vancouver BC etc. :)

    I use to be in a Rock & Roll band called “Perfect Chaos”. I played keyboards and was back up vocalist/harmony & a few songs of my own too. That was about 2 yrs. of fame. I stretched mine a bit.

    I’ve been entertaining for many years, and have put out about nine CD’s if not more. So I guess I stretched my fame a bit too.,

    I think I’ve had a few 15 minutes throughout my life-I was interviewed for a Hyperberic Oxygen segment on the local news in 2008. I think that was the most publicity I’ve gotten before :)

    I actually taped it and have it still! LOL

    Happy Friday ^.^

    A passenger recognized you….wow! :)

    Great question….not sure it’s “fame”, but was a regular guest on the local news. LOL

    And Cathi….sweet Cathi….I think your best years are ahead!! :)

    I guess it was when I was interviewed for a parenting magazine about the playgroup classes which I used to conduct with my boys when they were younger.

    I think I’ve had quite a few 15 minutes of fame! First being when I was 22 I had professional photos done, nothing of the naked nature mind you.. but the one was a little on the hmm provocative side, the picture itself came out great the guy who did them asked me if I’d be willing to sign a waiver of release so he could use it for his “ad” – of course I’d get paid a commission for any work he got off said “ad”. About a month later I’m walking down the main bar strip here and had a guy stop me and keep saying I know you I know you.. he couldn’t for the life of me remember how or where.. well let me tell you how, perhaps I should have asked where exactly this ad was going to be, it was in the back of Penthouse! I’ve also had the local news outlets sports people chasing me around for year.. I own a Grandson of Secretariat and every year the Kentucky Derby rolls around the news sports people want to come out and do a story on my horse. My horse is a local celebrity to say the least. The one year they did the story it was a little windy and through the whole interview part of my hair was standing up and it literally looked like I had a bird wing coming off my forehead! Oh and the horse tried to run over the camera guy during filming, wooops!

    I was selected by a local news channel to be a woman in the spotlight. They were doing a segment about blogging and trying to show how it can change your life. Of course, I blogged about the camera crew in my house and featured the video – which included the “fluff” that I didn’t want in it.

  15. 15

    When I was still living in Seattle, I used to do a lot of local commercials and was an extra in movies filmed in the Seattle area. Not necessarily ‘fame’, but definitely lots of fun. :)

    I don’t think it was 15 minutes, more like 1 minute, but I had a speaking role in a local commercial for a medical imaging facility.

    I don’t think I have had mine yet.

    When I was in high school I was an officer in the FFA and the state newspaper interviewed us. The FFA was under going some major changes and they wanted our opinions. They even ran our photo with it too.

    The second (little) thing was a few years ago. The local news station was running a piece on the day after Christmas shoppers. (Yep we shop the day after) We had no idea we were on tv until my family and friends started calling us that night.

    So really not much of 15 minutes of fame but hey its better than nothing. LOL.

    I did a nursery makeover for Parents magazine and was featured in several issues in a Chase ad :)

    I’m still waiting for mine! :)

    I’ve had won some competitions in the past that have literally given me about 5 minutes of fame! Exciting while it lasted – but I much prefer being out of the spotlight!

    I think my 15 minutes of fame was when my daughter was born. I was 45 and everyone at the hospital was amazed!

  27. 27

    I haven’t really had one yet… Unless you call my butt being on the news when they were filming a segment in the pharmacy I worked at and I was in the background working. =)
    Or the time I had to have the bruises on my butt and arm photographed at the police department after I was assaulted.
    So my butt is famous, just not me. TeeHee!!
