I thought this was part of the copy from the Amy Poehler photo above.
This whole thing is depressing and mysterious. This weird quote from him in the story that broke yesterday didn't help:
"what would you do if you woke up with a groggy head, metallic taste in your mouth, in a strangers house... walked to the mirror and seen come dripping from the side of your face from your mouth, and started wretching, realizing that someone had drugged, raped, and blown their fuckin load in you? what would you do?"
Yahoo's in the Happy House.
Who is that a picture of?
Most of the rooms on that site seem like wonderful places to live. Call me crazy.
Is viewer curiosity still piqued by a dour "extreme violence" pre-show warning? I thought people became desensitized to that too.

Wow, this is an amazing overview Sarah! This SO needed documenting. Just wanna do a shout-out to influential early 80's typo guy Neville Brody too...
Great story John. A friend and I hiked in the canyon, from the rim down to the Havasupai indian reservation, back in 1988. It was a great experience. Our trip was a little more planned, but I remember the hike back up being a whole new kind of brutal.
Same age. Same time. Similar memories. Although I was a fly-on-the-wall to my friends' Duran Duran obsession (I was more into Siouxsie & the Banshees and 4AD) I did overhear countless conversations like this, was exposed to lots of VHS video comps and issues of Smash Hits, and even saw them at Reunion Arena in Dallas (where they came out at the end all wearing Dallas Cowboys jerseys). Loved reading this! Had to share with my old high school friends...
