Watch the Filth and the Fury docu-movie. Brilliant.

Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?

I think Lydon himself is quite an interesting character, but not sure if people should aspire to model themselves on him.

I mean acting that arrogantly is fine if you are selected by the big record companies/promoters to play a particular social/brainwashing role. I mean, he had a certain level of musical ability, true, but these guys were used as part of a political and social brainwashing agenda.

The whole idea was to get youth to copy guys like this. But if you're not working in TV/music/Hollywood, it won't get you far.

You will also find lots of entrepreneurs, lawyers, and other high earners, who have an extreme self-assuredness, but if they acted this way, they would not be in business at all.

Since the cult of the celebrity is kind of on the way out (as we're all saying here, you can get almost any woman you want if you're a non-celebrity anyway) it's kind of futile to take Lydon as a role model. Unless you're under 21 and have no responsibilities, or you have signed a deal with Viacom or EMI to become some kind of teen rebel figure, he's not really somebody to look up to.

Having said that, he is really intelligent, and comes across brilliantly in interviews now, when being less confrontational.
