See what a cigar'll do?

Since it's Friday and I'm feelin' kinda spunky, I'm gonna spin this thing completely around on it's head. I'm a fan of Crispin Hellion Glover, I think he's outrageous and funny and enough of a freak to make himself seem real, especially in the context of all that is Hollywood. He does what he wants and doesn't seem to care about what others think of him.

Take this, for instance, when he was on David Lettermen for the first time, back in 1987 (screen capture).

Or this incredible music video he did for the song, Ben, in the movie Willard.

He's got his own (small) website, from which you can order his books (which are wacked but amazing) and keep up to date on his movie, What Is It...if it ever comes out.

Plus he's been in a lot of films and, say what you want, he's usually fun to watch (Back to The Future, Rivers Edge, Charlie's Angels, Willard, Rubin & Ed, Wild at Heart, Dead Man, etc.).

I could go on and on but I won't. Here are two sites dedicated to him: Crispin Online and the Crispin Encyclopedia.

So what does this have to do with music? Well, back in 1989 Crispin released an album which was produced by Barnes & Barnes (remember fishheads?). It's quite a ride w/music and readings from his books. You can still purchase it direct from his website, apparently, or Amazon.
