What's great, and terrible, about Wikipedia is that anyone can edit it. Anyone--including the person the Wikipedia entry is about.
This becomes obvious when looking at the pages of certain washed-up celebrities, and the results are equal parts hilarious and sad.
If you remember the 80s, you remember this guy:
He burst onto the scene as the smart-ass kid in The Goonies, and turned up in seemingly a dozen movies a year as a teenager, often alongside the less awesome Corey (Haim). Then, wouldn't you know it, one day he found himself a wee bit older and three busloads less cute.
It seemed like the glory days were over for our hero. And they most certainly were. But when perusing his Wikipedia article, we find a strangely detailed account of Corey's adventures in the last decade or so, and very little about the stuff he did as a child, when he was, you know, famous and crap.
It's almost as if the author desperately needs us to know that Feldman has indeed accomplished something with his adult life (hint: he hasn't).
Perhaps the best thing about Corey Feldman's Wikipedia article is that contained within its murky bowels is an almost supernaturally shameless plug for his latest (and most ambitious!) crappy album.
"In November of 2008 he released his most ambitious musical project to date, a new album with his band Truth Movement entitled Technology Analogy. This high concept album has been met with tremendous reviews, and features an all-star line up, including Jon Carin (Pink Floyd), Mark Karan (Rat Dog, Grateful Dead) Scotty Page (Pink Floyd), and artwork by the legendary artist Storm Thorgerson. To order his album check out his website at www.coreyfeldman.net"
You'd be stupid not to buy this album. It's had tremendous reviews.
Feldman was the voice of Donatello in the first and third Ninja Turtles movies. Why not the second movie, you ask? Well, presumably he was too busy writing rock operas on the moon, having a career and not being douchey at all.
Just then, John Lennon rose from the grave and ate their brains.
