Famous Ex Watch

November 22nd, 2005 · 3 Comments

When Jarah Euston started her online alt-weekly Web zine Fresno Famous, she chose for the banner a mural bearing this quote:

I’m not going to be famous
I won’t get to be a rock star
I am going to be stuck on the payroll
Doing work that doesn’t interest me
For a very long time

Except now her efforts have put her on the cover of the L.A. Times for an article on Fresno’s “brain drain.” (Jarah’s cited as an exception.) Man, I don’t even have a Washington Post Style section profile; I’d better get my ass in gear.

    You totally can’t let Delta get more famous than you.

    Although I have to say her website kicks your website’s ass. Hell, it friggin made me want to check out Fresno.

    “Hell, it friggin made me want to check out Fresno.”
