How do you prove you're not crazy? Adam Ant would like to know. He has shown himself to be a little nuts in a recent interview, but isn't that what we expect from our washed-up stars of yesteryear who wore tights and streaks of makeup under his eyes?

But really, how do you prove you're sane - especially if you're a preformer?

Oh, hey... almost forgot the very appropriate palindrome!

Why does the story not mention "Wonderful"? That song came out in the 90's and did well for him. It's not inconceivable that he'll actually put another hit out. Unlikely, granted. But I love him, so I remain hopeful.

So unplug the jukebox and do us all a favor. That's music's lost it taste, so try another flavor. Antmusic.

Perhaps if he didn't wave a gun, rubber or otherwise, around in on the streets of Blighty people wouldn't think he was quite so mad.

WTF? A "fellow traveler"?

My term for a fellow sufferer. I have bipolar disorder type II.
Lots of creative/artistic folks deal with that or similar types of depressive/ bipolar illnesses, diagnosed or otherwise.

Um, I'm thinking not saying everyone's out to get you would be a good start.

there's a really good site named after the book, "noondaydemon.com" that has to do with this topic: informative, insightful, humorous...
