On January 3rd, 2006, I appeared on Feast of Fun podcast (then Feast of Fools), a Chicago-based LGBTQ comedy podcast hosted by Fausto Ferños and Marc Felion. Episode #216 was the first of a mutli-year string of annual trends and predictions show.
The visionary “kweer” puppeteer and performance artist Marsian De Lellis a modern day Truman Capote, used to be really fascinated with Michael Jackson and his freaky celebrity culture.
So much in fact, that he predicted the King of Pop’s decay of his face and career with puppet shows, stage performances and papers a decade ago. What inspired him to do this at a time when he was still putting out chart topping albums? It was the ground breaking book “Michael Jackson Was My Lover: The Secret Diary of Jordie Chandler” which as of this post sells for $192.00 on Amazon.com and Marsian is the proud owner of two (count them TWO) copies of the book.
Listen to Marsian, Marc and Fausto as they discuss Tom Carvel and his ice-cream cake empire, cookiepuss, fudgie the whale, and his daughter Linda Carvel.
And of course, we’ll be sharing our forcasts for the hot new topics, trends, and ideas that will take the world by storm in 2006. Colors? Celebrities? Sex? It’s all here.
The Feast of Fun podcast (formerly titled “Feast of Fools”) is a Chicago-based talk show hosted by Fausto Fernós and Marc Felion that showcases celebrity guests, artists, musicians, actors, and members of the LGBT community and those who support them. A typical program will include one or more of a number of features, including roundtable discussions, unusual news and social trends, LGBT issues, comedy, music, food and cocktail recipes, or interviews. Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Fausto Fernós created the Feast of Fools in 1998 as wacky artists variety show in Chicago, Illinois. Feast of Fun grew out of an audio blog to promote the live show
