"My farts are incensed with genius"

The strange story of Billy Yeager aka Jimmy Story the lost son of Jimi Hendrix aka independent film-maker extraordinaire.
I was wearing wigs and disguising myself as different kinds of people or sons of dead rock stars since 7th grade. I ran away at 13 years old. I lived in a tree house. I lost my virginity to a big fat girl who raped me on a hit of acid when I was 14 while her parents were in the living room watching All in the Family.

He's casting for a new film - albeit in a strange manner [swearing, violence, threats - maybe NSFW].

From Jimmy's Story:

At first I told no one not even my fiancé but then after a while I started to smell like turpentine because I had to rub the dye off which was Rit clothes dye that I filled the bathtub up with and soaked my body. I also wore a fake nose made of clay because mine is small. Later I just stuffed a lot of napkins up my nose, which also made me sound more nasal and like Jimi Hendrix's voice.

Actually, I think he's worthy of your Uwe Boll tag.

I doubt Josh would approve.

I was doing street contorsionism and busking ukelele style at the age of six after my teen deadhead mom left me with Hutterites and I just had to run away and be myself

Billy plays every single musical instrument

Theremin? Clavichord? Concertina? Steel drum?

GENIUS!

Sounds like a pretty oddball director. Right up my alley.

He bewilders friends and family. His grandmother sends him a K-Mart application as a hint.

The grandmother sounds like the only member of the family with a clue.

Bandwidth limit exceeded. Which is a shame - sounds fascinating.

Pornography: the documentary's origin and inevitable future.

Yikes, I was thinking of posting on the blue one day about my friend Billy, but wasn't sure how to do it justice. Glad someone broke the ice!

I could go on about how Billy is a reality hacker/con artist or that his aunt is Bunny Yeager, but all that has been momentarily eclipsed by the recent tragedy of Billy's former manager (featured prominently in Jimmy's Story):

"An angry Gerry Georgettis drove his SUV through the window of a car dealership, then torched the business. Four days later, he hung himself aboard a plane bound for Los Angeles."

Watching Billy on the TV news getting interviewed about Gerry was one of the very few times I have ever seen him not totally over the top full of bullshit.

That's how I found Billy Yeager, funnily enough.
