Cult career goals

"I wish I were Johnny Mathis. So mainstream. So popular. So unironic, yet perfect. Effortlessly boyish at over seventy years old, with a voice that still makes all of America want to make out ... Is it because Johnny Mathis is the polar opposite of me? A man whose Greatest Hits album was on the Billboard charts for 490 consecutive weeks. Versus me, a cult filmmaker whose core audience, no matter how much I’ve crossed over, consists of minorities who can’t even fit in with their own minorities."

–John Waters. "Role Models". 

Sounds like success to me. I secretly spend most days daydreaming to be some kind of subculture leader and provacateur. #subculture #zenith #discerningtaste
