My biggest question today is, to be honest, what were my media sources? I see names from the creaky end of the variety show era, from the news, and from the radio, which is understandable, but how did I know about the whole Warhol Studio 54 crowd? I even remember leaving Warhol himself OFF the list because I liked him too much. How did I know about Halston and Bianca Jagger and Margaret Trudeau? I just don't remember.
Anyway, not substantially different from a blog post I might make today! I especially like the mingling of terrible dictators with minor pop celebrities. I'm pretty sure this is the only list ever made to include Karen Valentine and Baby Doc Duvalier, or Idi Amin and Wink Martindale. Solid pairings.
More to come!
