Stuff from Hellion

Crispin Glover freaked me out last year. We went to see him appearing live at the Alamo Drafthouse when he was presenting his film “What Is It?”. I embrace the weird, and Crispin is genuinely weird. He had Q&A for the film, and presented a narrated slideshow from his art/poetry book. I enjoyed the slideshow, including the grotesqueness of it, and he is hilarious sometimes but I honestly can’t tell if it’s intentional on his part. Anyway, the movie is kind of a disjointed nightmare where hundreds of snails are killed, and people in ugly masks (and ugly people) have sex with actors with Down’s syndrome. I know… sounds like tons of fun but it left me with some disturbing images that I still carry around. He weirded me right under the table (it was the snails).

Anyway, I’ve been messing around with and noticed that he has a profile*, and an absolutely hilarious blog entry on Chuck Norris.
It’s a list of comments on Chuck Norris. This one begins the list:

Chuck Norris' tears cure cancer. Too bad he has never cried.

*Actually, he has two; this one and his “official” one which does not have blog entries yet. This is his website.

I still embrace his weirdness, but will pass on a future re-viewing of "What Is It?"

Blue, I recently found Myspace as well and got totally freaked out one day in the music/scoustic forum when my mouse ran over the top ad bar for the latest smilies. All of a sudden there was this voice that said "Hello", then another and another. It sounded like a friend that I was waiting for to come over. Guess I had the sound up to loud. Spooky but not as weird as Crispin Glover.
