What DOESN'T this guy do?

What DOESN'T this guy do? He writes novels, screenplays, and old school radio dramas. In his spare time he records sci-fi inspired avant-garde electronica, trippy ambient stuff, and produces albums for other bands. He meshes spoken word and noise-pop , and with his old band, the unapologetic New Romantics Oo Oo Wa, produced an absolute wanker masterpiece, and ended up getting signed by the same guy who gave the Smashing Pumpkins their first record deal. Of late, he just turned up on Electric Lash: A Tribute to The Church. Creative genius, or too damned much Starbucks?

Why does everyone have to ask questions at the end of the post? Like people are really going to dicuss that?

"Yep. Sounds like a classic case of too much coffee."

Everybody is a genius all the time. But only few set out to utilize it.

Quantity is not quality, unfortunately, as his prose is like a river of bland.

Hmmm... what doesn't he do?

Restrain his friends from baldly plugging his site on MetaFilter.



Get published.

I know, "be nice" (and being Minnesotan, I know it only too well) ... but really, this called for it

And what does he have on Vincent Gallo?

It seems that so called renaissance men/women do exist. I wonder if its some rogue gene in people that makes them feel the need to accomplish Everything. Hmm.

What about P. Diddy? Runs a massive empire. Owns his own music production company (Bad Boy), consulting company (Blue Flame), radio station (spinner.com), fashion line (Sean John), as well as producing two shows on MTV (Making the Band) and his own reality-based show.

Oh, yeah, sometimes he throws wild parties in the Hamptons. If you're lucky, you'll see Martha Stewart, Spike Lee, Dennis Rodman, and Cindy Crawford there.
