I imagine a lot of Stanhope’s appeal lies in the fact that he is some sort of a rockstar, something that is reflected in the titles of his cds. Something to Take The Edge Off, Die Laughing, and especially Burning The Bridge to Nowhere are very alluring as far as I’m concerned. I discovered him in a touching episode of Louis C.K.’s Louie. Or rather, a friend of mine suggested that I should read his wikipedia page. Journalists know how to entice one’s attention, or mine in any event, by calling him “the Most Depraved Man? (in GQ).
I had written something about Corey Dargel’s album, but it was not appropriate, so I BLOTTED it OUT. Read this article instead (I had the occasion to notice it before while googling “Ran Blake”: very good blog).
