[Make Up Your Own Appropriate Headline]

This was going to be a post about something else, but then a story caught my eye.  A 45 year old Croatian guy was left with a permanent erection after plastic surgery on his nose.

Am I the only person to have noticed that that’s an inflatable penis and not his real one?

Anyway.  Apparently the priapism was a side effect of rhinoplasty in Iran while Channel 4 were filming a documentary about the 45 year old called Nevan Ciganovic.

Apparently he sees the one hour documentary as a stepping stone to world wide fame.

I look forward to a movie about myself. Channel 4 dedicated a whole episode about me. I think this is a big deal and I hope this is the start of my international career.

Career as what?  I wouldn’t describe having a film made about you as a career.  A film was made about Alan Turing (The Imitation Game) because he was an absolute genius and war hero persecuted for being himself.  He didn’t do what he did for the fame, he did it for the greater good.

The Crash Reel was a documentary film about snowboarder Kevin Pearce’s rehabilitation from serious brain injury.

Those are two of my favourite biographical movies, but then you have Schindler’s List (Oskar Schindler), The Pianist (Wladyslaw Szpilman), A Beautiful Mind (John Nash), 12 Years A Slave (Solomon Northup), Invictus (Nelson Mandela), Selma (Martin Luther King), Dallas Buyers Club (Ron Woodroof), The Aviator (Howard Hughes), Walk The Line (Johnny Cash)… And many, many more inspirational stories of inspirational people.

Here’s a guy who thinks he should be famous because he’s had 12 plastic surgeries for reasons of pure vanity, as far as I can tell.  I’ve had three plastic surgeries (all for non-vanity reasons) so I’m nearly there – a few more mole removals and I’ll be laughing.  Being famous for being famous is one of those modern day occurrences that really annoys me.

Plus, he tucks his pants in to his socks.

 

Baby, look at me and tell me what do you see?
You ain’t seen the best of me yet
Give me time, I’ll make you forget the rest
I’ve got more in me, and you can set it free
I can catch the moon in my hand
Don’t you know who I am?
Remember my name

(Fame) I’m gonna live forever
I’m gonna learn how to fly (High)
I feel it coming together
People will see me and cry
(Fame) I’m gonna make it to heaven
Light up the sky like a flame
(Fame) I’m gonna live forever
Baby, remember my name
(Remember, remember, remember, remember)
(Remember, remember, remember, remember)

Baby hold me tight, ’cause you can make it right
You can shoot me straight to the top
Give me love and take all I got to give
Baby I’ll be tough, too much is not enough, no
I can ride your heart ’til it breaks
Ooh, I got what it takes
Remember my name,

(Fame) I’m gonna live forever
I’m gonna learn how to fly (High)
I feel it coming together
People will see me and cry
(Fame) I’m gonna make it to heaven
Light up the sky like a flame
(Fame) I’m gonna live forever
Baby, remember my…
(Remember, remember, remember, remember)
(Remember, remember, remember, remember)

(Fame) I’m gonna make it to heaven
Light up the sky like a flame
(Fame) I’m gonna live forever
Baby, remember my…
(Remember, remember, remember, remember)
(Remember, remember, remember, remember)

(Remember my name)
(Fame) I’m gonna live forever
I’m gonna learn how to fly (High)
I feel it coming together
People will see me and cry
(Fame) I’m gonna make it to heaven
Light up the sky…
