Like the Fat Elvis, phoning in uninspired performances to an uncritical crowd. A pitfall of fame or legendhood. A self-inflicted (and/or audience-inflicted) notion in which one sees one's self in Quotation Marks and must produce that persona ad infinitum, lest one disappoint the audience and/or lose The Payday. It matters not that one has lapsed into self-parody, far from the spark of genius (if any) that produced the fame; just "Give The People What They Want" - a trained seal, behind bars.
