Fever Isn't Such A New Thing

The "Self-Portrait" series has been dusted off, resurrected and resuscitated. Renewed interest by an outside source FORCED me to shoot this last night.

I didn't want to do it.

Really I didn't.

Look for more. Or don't. I don't care.

And in uplifting news, Lux Interior from The Cramps is dead at 62 from an "existing heart condition." Fuck.

If you never saw the Cramps, you won't now. I did. Twice. And their "Tear It Up" in "Urghh, A Music War" was what grabbed me as a teenager...and made me frightened and fascinated.

RIP, Erick Lee Purkhiser.

It's Wednesday. In February. Two Thousand Nine?

Do I have an existing heart condition? My doctor says no...

Cover Star: Katy
Headlining Band: The Cramps
