tomorrow is the birthday of John Quale, better known to most folks as Prince Poppycock. i know a lot of people still don't know who John is, and even some who do may dismiss him because they're put off by his flamboyant alter ego. but JQ/PP is so much more than just a pretty face and flashy costumes. besides being an amazing singer--he got a punk/alternative/electronica fanatic *iow me* to listen to OPERA. i call that pretty amazing--he's just, well...
just watch this vid he made for the "It Gets Better" movement. [link]
now, while i'm not gay, i still identify with his message a LOT. i was a bit of an outcast as a kid (big surprise, huh?
cause i'm such a conventional
person) and i really never felt as if i fit in anywhere, either. *still don't, tbph*
but, like John says: that's OK. being an individual is good. each one of us is a 'different color in the rainbow'
sometimes i try to get this point across to some of my younger watchers & fellow artists who seem hell-bent on pleasing everyone EXCEPT themselves. sure, it's fine to ask for opinions on how to improve your technique or whatever, but above all you should be true to yourself
. that's my humble opinion, anyway
but then i suppose, like John, i've had longer to figure out who i am & accept myself, whether other people do or not. so the phrase IT GETS BETTER
really does apply to more than one type of personality and/or lifestyle ♥
ok, enough with the serious shtuff already: here's some fabulous Poppycock-inspired fanarts i've compiled to share with you guys ~ENJOY~
