Wonderful!

Related thread here. The original link is dead now, though.

...unless you've read the previous thread about his works.

ooh. I missed the previous, but this is so cool.

I found this article about him, and here's a cached forum page that has the text of the NYT article, in case you don't feel like dealing with the pdf from the site.

I've seen these before (not here), but they never fail to impress me and weird me out a bit. Thanks for the link.

This is a wonderful story, and that'll soon be a really wonderful website. It's one of those tales where I become supremely jealous of both the original artist, and of the "diggers" who came across his oeuvre. Man. And I want to hear the tunes!

This is just a really great story. I know we all have our fantasies, but I don't think most of us will ever turn them into something tangible that other people can enjoy.

Mingering Mike is the soul superstar you've never heard of...
...and probably not without reason.

It must be pretty tragic finding out that all your possessions have been sold out from under you by a storage company, but without this happening it probably would have been a few more years before his work came to light. Serendipity is a strange thing.

Mingering Mike, as seen in waxpoetics.

Too bad they don't have mp3s, but instead use that shitty RA format.
