hmmm, planning on an insanity plea, which means he's SANE!
omfg, this is like watching perry mason on bad mushrooms.
for all of you younger burners, perry mason was some crippled fuck played by raymond burr...
ANd Raymond Burr was a drug addled porn star who hung out with bob crane and sigfried, of sigried and roy......
Raymond Burr was gay and he liked to dress up in women's clothes. Nothin' wrong with that. Probably would have looked amazing on the playa. And the show wasn't all that bad even though the urge to spank someone was there. secondly, we have laawyears here such as Teo, so even though they burn we shouldn't burn 'em, I don't think.
Now back to the subject at hand. Artist's sometimes are fucking nuts. Picasso was a drunk, we all know about Vincent van Gogh and his ear, (fucking nuts).
addis did hang balls from the man,
he did, I believe, try and warn people that he was going to burn the object of our lust, our love, our dreams and desires. No wonder so many people are so pissed off at him. in theater some times a actor becomes the character. Addis was trying to pull of a very difficult character, can you imagine how he might attempt to "get into character" by consuming and shooting and fucking... just like the gonzo he wishes to be, if only to provide a source of legal tender.
Maybe he is "fucking nuts" (and it ain't nothin' to laugh at) but in the end when the book is done with editing, I think his act will be looked at as the nexus, the turning point, the big CHANGE for the art festival we love so much.
