The Arch Dandy of Da Da! Daddy, there’s a man in our TV.

This week was strenuous and I landed myself in the hospital as a result of “going too far” in the creation process. I am fine now and glad to be back in the studio. We have just completed the last track for the album and it is my favorite so far.

I also started a series of life-size paintings of Elizabeth Short’s bizarre death. It has haunted me all my life.

Speaking of paintings, I acquired a Marlene Dietrich portrait from Helnwein that is signed by her. It is one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen.

If mankind is illustrated, are we pencils or erasers? Write the score? Or the right whore?
