Still Corky after all these posts!


"Fame has not spoiled me in the slightest. I'm still just as big of an asshole as I was before I became famous."
Captain Corky-6/29/2007

Sunshine wrote a post about fame yesterday that in part inspired me to write this post.

I don't think fame has really changed me all that much. Sure I dress a little snazzier these days, and Allyson and I have two cars, a Lincoln Mercury and a Ford Focus, instead of having to share one measly Ford Escort with a fucked up transmission, but for the most part I'm still as humble as a Jew assigned to carry his own crucifix on his back through the scorching desert sun.

People tend to respect our privacy here in Kentucky, which I am extremely grateful for. As a matter of fact, you would think that I was just another ignorant redneck the way they ignore me here in this apartment complex. Nobody ever asks me for an autograph, or tries to take a picture of me through the blinds while I'm tossing off. I guess this is basically why I use a pen name instead of my own legal name. It's just nice to be able to stroll down the street and share an ice cream cone with my lovely lady.

Here on the Internet I'm about as big as they get, but believe it or not I'm still very interested in what you have to offer and say. The world can be a pretty rotten place folks. You know that and I know that. Everywhere we go we're constantly reminded of this fact. But when I read your blogs I find hope. Even when some of you think that there is none. That's why I continue to read your blogs. Oh and a lot of you are really fucking talented and or funny. That too.

A couple of things: Let's not forget to tune into Rockdog's radio show Saturday night at 12:00 Pm. Keep in mind that after the show you can catch Corky, and the Birdman, hanging out with Rockdog on his webcam. Also, it's exactly 11 days to Post time. Have a great weekend my friends.

Well done, lol

ps: Can you send me an autographed picture?
And if you don't have one of Captain Kirk, yours will do.

Terri said...

sweet - two FMC vehicles - again I say, sweet!

I'm glad with all your fame you still lower yourself to visit and comment at my place. This is truly an influential factor to my meager readership. Thank you so much Captain!

11 days will FLY by. I hope Allyson is a few days early, and does not go over her due date, especially this time of year.

Heart Of Darkness said...

See, I believe I'd be famous by now too, if Skinny Bitch Bear hadn't given me all these hang-ups and neuroses...

I don't believe I'd be much different by fame, either... can't get any worse then I already am, really... they don't call me J.Lo because of the butt!


...oh, wait... do they?

Sunshine said...

Only Kirk could rock a hat like that.

It's nice you've found a place you can be "you" and not be harrassed, but you've opened a can of worms - Kentucky will become a hotbed of privacy-seeking celebrities now.

Your neighbors will be pissed if Paris Hilton moves in.

Jerrster said...

Jesus Corky (and I mean that) you're a fucking Blog Rockstar.

Now what's the Rockdog radio show thing?

I must be checking that out.

karma lennon said...

Nice post. Glad I know someone so darn famous. ;) Going to try to catch the show this weekend since I missed last weekend.

Big Pissy said...

Cork,

Please send me an autographed photo. I promise to hang it in a place of honor in the den here at the casa.

Thank you ever so much. :)

Lady K said...

Seriously. I'm putting post-it notes all over my house so I don't forget.

Glad to hear you're not gonna leave us "little people" in the dust. Well, at least until you lose sleep because of the 3am feedings...

Biddie said...

I don't even know what to say. Seriously. You're just too much.
Good luck with him, Allyson.

Jay said...

You've done it the smart way. Using an alias like that you've got the best of both worlds. Fame and privacy.

I wish I was as smart as you. I swear, walking out of my apartment I have to get past all those damn groupies and paparazzi. It gets soooo old.

captain corky said...

Nancy: Welcome! I hope this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Terri: Are you kidding? With all the camping you and your family do I'm going to ask, humbly, if you'll be so kind as to adopt me.

Heart: Are you still Jenny From the Block?

Sunshine: I'll kill the bitch myself is she tries!

Jerrster: Thanks! And of course I forgive you for your sins.

captain corky said...

Karma: I hope you make it!

Pissy: Anything for you, but won't Sweetman get jealous?

Lady K: Join us tomorrow night. It's lots of fun.

Biddie: Ain't I a hoot? ;)

Jay: It's got to get pretty expensive paying for all of those new shirts. Those groupies are viscous!

furiousBall said...

just remember it's better to burn out than fade away as Def Leppard taught us.

Jenny! said...

I have been trying to buy a dirty pair of undies from you for months now...and still no love for you biggest fans! Are you sure that you don't have to pull your blinds down when spanking it???

Heather said...

You're too f'n funny dude. I'm sure you'll be writing about a stalker soon.

The [Cherry] Ride said...

I think it is nice that you pull the blinds when you toss off. I usually just leave the windows wide open.

RockDog said...

I find that since you were on the show, people from all over the world (except Hawaii...not sure what the big island has against you) email me asking for more info on you...

Have a kick ass weekend!

Laurasia said...

That was so sincere. I think a tear almost fell. I really almost lost it when you mentioned that you do care about what we have to say(given your fame and all)

That's the charity in you cork. What an awesome man you are!

captain corky said...

Furrious: Oddly enough, I can't remember anything Def Leppard taught me.

Jenny: Talk dirty to me baby. Whisper sweet nothings in my ear.

Heather: I've had enough Stalkers already, but glad you got a good chuckle out of ol' Corky's crap.

Cherry Ride: All you surfers are all the same.

Rockdog: People from Hawaii hate me because I can't play the ukulele. That's the reason.

Laurasi: Bottle up that tear dear. It's going to be famous some day!

Tink said...

I read this post Cork, and I thought... "What the hell am I doing wrong?" *Sniffle* Please, tell us great blogmaster. How did you get so famous?

etain_lavena said...

hey Capitan, I am ok, just very depressed thanks for caring:)
keep safe....when is the baby there?
hugz me:)

Jenny! said...

Hand over your drawers first!!!

Metal Mark said...

You are a star.

whimsicalnbrainpan said...

LMAO!

So famous and yet you still take time out for us little people. ;-)
We are so lucky to know you.

madame x said...

dear your corkyness,
please forgive me for not realizing your vast fame. (I am an old person) I am sure fortune will follow. Don't spend it all on skittles.
your humble servant

David said...

Sir,
With the utmost respect for your mighty position, I beg you to autograph my square of single ply. It would help me greatly as I would sell it on e-bay. Imagine how much I could get from your female admirers. It would all go to charity. My charity ;)
Respectfully yours,

eric313 said...

Like Shatner before you, there's ain't gonna be no freakin' prime directive holding you back!

Thanks man, even us bottom feeder Detroit poets feel at home in the presence of imperial internet might!

Today the internet, tomorrow the world.

Pink said...

Can I have your autograph? And maybe a pic of you and your lovely lady eating ice cream?

If I had that...I might have some hope.

BTW - I don't think I can tune in to the radio show over here in the UK can I?

How about an MP3 snippet?
xx

The Lone Beader said...

I bet U miss that old pickup truck...

And, I am honored everytime you stop by one of my blogs:)

HoosierGirl5 said...

And to think you live right here in River City, near ME......

Can I have your autograph, too?
And maybe a pair of your boxers???

Such a humble guy. I am honored to be on your blogroll...

J.

captain corky said...

Tink: Please don't cry! You're starting to make me sniffle.

Etain: Hang in there girl! The baby should be here very soon.

Jenny: Never wear them.

Metal Mark: Too true Mark. Too True.

Whim: Exactly. I'm an interactive famous person

captain corky said...

Madame X: I can forgive you this time. I'm a very forgiving famous guy.

David: I'll send you an autograph as long as you promise not to squeeze it.

Eric313: Exactly, The Prime Directive is for wimps like Picard:

Pink: I'm not sure how it works. I have enough trouble finding the power button on my computer.

Beader: I plan on getting a much bigger vehicle next time I buy a one. That's for sure!

Hoosiergirl5: Sure! It's always been important for me to stay humble.

Webmiztris said...

I can totally relate. when I go out, I see the people who recognize me from my blog and I know they are just dying to get an autograph! fortunately, they know better than to ask. ;)

Aunt Jackie said...

Did I miss something?!? **scratches head** lol

Well, don't forget ME (AUNT JACKIE), who has been known to hang out with the Rockdog on his cam, and listen intently to his radio show too... Just not the past 2 weekends because of my Rockstar Life and Birthday crap!! :)

eric313 said...

Exactly. Man was I drunk that night. Later.

Cazzie!!! said...

I shall autograph a picture of me, and send it to ya :)

Sunshine said...

I just watched Larry King, and Paris Hilton said not only is she moving in by you but she wants to babysit for you because you're so famous and "that's hot".

eric313 said...

picard was an egghead

Canadian flake said...

wow I am humbled to be in the presence of someone so "famous". I couldn't help but laugh when I saw Kirk's pic and I knew EXACTLY what episode it was from. Did I mention I am a true and blue trekkie?? LOL.

captain corky said...

Webmiztris: It aint easy being us, is it?

Aunt Jackie: I could never forget you. I saw you there last night as a matter of fact.

Eric313: Story of my life man.

Cazzie: Promise to wear that outfit in the picture you send me?

Sunshine: LOL. I'll kill her.

Eric313: I like Patrick Stewart better as Xavier, and Scrooge!

Canadian Flake: I easily could fall in love with you...

JINKS said...

Hail Captain,

just a note to say hello and enjoying the log......and you look so hot in that fedora....

kat said...

I'm sorry - I am so stuck on the phrase "tossing off". I've never heard that term before and I can't think about anyhing else now.
