So you need to be naked to be famous these days? October 17, 2007

So I just heard about this (am I the fuckin last to know? Guess that’s what I get for not reading the Post!).

Apparently last Friday some ad agency worker had a meltdown and walked around the streets of Manhattan naked:


According to the article, Josh Drimmer, 26, “temporarily lost his senses and that he was just having a really bad day…It was an extreme panic attack brought on by days of not sleeping. I had a bad day.” Now, I’ve worked my fair share of bad days in agency land but never took to the streets naked as a result. I may have done some swearing and maybe even broken a pencil or two (don’t tell!) but that’s gotta be some kinda meltdown to go to Times Square in the nude.

Unless he was just trying to show up the Naked Cowboy.

But apparently this may not have been Mr. Drimmer’s first nude appearance in public. According to the article, Drimmer, a Yale graduate, was in a group called the “Pundits” where there were naked parties with party goers hanging out in the nude.

Mr. Drimmer is also a fellow blogger. He writes a blog, “Excellence Makes Wack Irrelevant” which he classifies as “some jottings, findings, and sharp darts thrown by Josh Drimmer, playwright, pontificator, patriot.”

Although he hasn’t updated his blog in quite some time so needless to say he’s “petered out” on the whole blogging experience? Hey-oh! Thank you, thank you. I’ll be here till Friday, try the veal.

Anyway, this guy is now a mega celebrity. He even caught the eye of this police officer who apparently thinks he’s a “detective”:

Notice the officer on the left “inspecting” the package

Easy there officer. If you stare at it too long it’ll make you go blind. Or is that what they say about masterbating too much? Can’t remember.

Anyway, am I jealous at his new found fame? Sure. But until I get into “nudity baring” shape I promise I’ll spare my fellow New Yorkers of me running around in the buff. Unless I need the publicity of course. Cause then I can just chalk it up to a bad day.

I leave you, Mr. Drimmer, with some words to live by:

Where is the moment we needed the most
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
They tell me your blue skies fade to gray
They tell me your passion’s gone away
And I don’t need no carryin’ on

You stand in the line just to hit a new low
You’re faking a smile with the coffee you go
You tell me your life’s been way off line
You’re falling to pieces every time
And I don’t need no carryin’ on

Because you had a bad day
You’re taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know
You tell me don’t lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don’t lie
You’re coming back down and you really don’t mind
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

9. whatpushesmybuttons - October 17, 2007

100 WPMB points to whoever properly names the reference!

12. Mr. Blogger - October 18, 2007

That would be Seinfeld…with George and the shrinkage episode?

13. gary - October 18, 2007

ah yes…i remember now….haha…nice…mr. blogger always gets the seinfeld references!

14. tiffany - October 18, 2007

15. carlos - October 18, 2007

too many naked men in this post dude…

16. melanie - October 18, 2007

and your probably with that is what carlos? heehee

17. chris - October 18, 2007

Mr Blogger is correct again…i’ll have to try to find a seinfeld reference you don’t get…i do have the first few seasons on DVD…doesn’t get more obscure than that!

18. growingwings - October 18, 2007

i especially love ‘inspecting’ cop.

19. Stiletto - October 18, 2007

“Falling Down” would have turned out differently if Michael Douglas would have just lost it naked.

Hopefully they’d have the good sense not to show his backside. Then moviegoers would have a meltdown.

20. Chris - October 18, 2007

Stiletto: yeah..that would have led to some mass puking in the theaters…although someone should remake falling down with a character in the nude…i’d volunteer, but need to hit the gym big time to get into shape for that…i’m sure you’d volunteer Mr. Olympia 😉

Growingwings: it looks like the cop is wishing it was a chia pet or something. maybe NYPD “grew”?
