The theme of that rock some is pure autographism.

The public did not relate to the artist's autographic theme in the painting. Example: An artist paints a picture of an artist painting (Drawing Hands by Escher)

Example: On Star Trek The Next Generation the main activity recreational seemed to be acting and other things done in front of an audience (see episodes: The Nth Degree, Time's Arrow, Schisms, Sarek)

Example: Every TV sitcom that is on long enough has an episode where someone is an actor or is on TV. (Married with children: Kiss of the Coffee Woman, Just Shoe It, Get Outta Dodge; Futurama: Bender Should Not Be Allowed on TV; The Andy Griffith Show: The Taylors in Hollywood)

Example: TV shows and Movies about working in entertainment (Dick Van Dyke Show, I Love Lucy, Seinfeld, Frasier, Danny Thomas)

Example: Books where the main theme is related to a book, writing a book or where the writer is the main character
