Semipopular

I read a great article in Sunday’s New York Times Magazine about KCRW’s programming director Nic Harcourt who is also the host of possibly the best radio show going, Morning Becomes Eclectic.

The article called Nic "The Star Maker of the Semipopular".

That’s what I want to be – semipopular.

My mom always told me "everything in moderation".  That’s a good rule to live life by.

I think being too popular isn’t a good thing.  You often crash and burn that way.

Obviously being unpopular isn’t a great way to go about living life either.

But semipopular, that’s a great place to be.

So I would be happy to be taken off all these nutty lists.  I don’t want to be a star.  I want to be semipopular.
