I’m in the business of entertainment, Internet entertainment. I publish an online girlie magazine, the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette. Now I’m pretty old school because I’m an old dude. I’m retired. I did not grow up with the Internet. So, in order to be relevant, I’ve had a lot of catching up to do. And I’m still catching up.
I guess what this self-conscious introduction is all about is Internet celebrity. What is it and how do you get it? I want Internet celebrity. I want my little girlie magazine to get, oh, 10,000 visitors a day. Then I’ll consider myself an Internet celebrity. My little girlie magazine gets around 300 visitors a day.
Karen Alloy is an Internet celebrity. I got her photos from the good people at Egotastic! a couple of months ago just to use in a post for my nude pinup series which I’ve since moved to trash because this is a far better post for her photos. I really didn’t know anything about her. So, I Googled her and then went to Youtube to checkout one of her videos before I used her for the nude pinup series. I just randomly clicked on one of her videos. Google said she was a comedienne. I forget how many subscribers she had but I do remember thinking if the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette had those many subscribers, I’d be an Internet celebrity, too.
She sat fully clothed, drinking her breast milk from a clear plastic cup. She had used a breast pump on herself. (I guess she had had a baby recently. I don’t know.) She described what her breast milk tasted like, a little sweet with a hint of pineapple juice which she couldn’t understand because she hadn’t had any pineapple juice.
I am not making any of this up.
No, a link to the video is not included in this post. You’ll have to look her up yourself. Did I subscribe to her Youtube site? No. I’ve got my own site to worry about. What did I think of the video?
I found it fascinating. All the photos of this post are of Karen Alloy.
This is the Old Soldier reporting from Pittsburgh.
PS There is a market for breast milk, to feed infants, and she warned her viewers to only buy their breast milk from reputable dealers.
You learn something new everyday.
Karen Alloy, the Old Soldier salutes you!
