Quotation of the Year!

Well, I think it is worthy of that accolade, and is a good reminder of what is and isn't genuine in modern culture. Indeed, there are other areas to which one could apply the same thinking.

This is from one Alan Douglas, and appears on the MikuStar site's Introduction page – and, if you follow that link, yes the mouse pointer is supposed to do that...

"The world is filled with fake celebrities, pretending to be something they are not, remade by image consultants, keeping up appearances with a polished veneer. Hatsune Miku is none of these things. She is exactly what she appears to be, with no pretense or deception. She is the sum total of the hopes and dreams and creative energy of her legions of adoring fans, and can be nothing else. She is quite possibly the most genuine celebrity to ever grace the earth."
