  • A Tell You Will Must Die.
  • fucking tremendous
  • @Epitymbidia: I agree, quite rapturous and stirring. I need more of this man's work in my life.
  • @ Nakkinak : good one!
  • "Die sieben Todsünden der Kleinbürger" with Marianne Faithfull is just too good for words. Gorgeous!
  • Artists images are all wrong, that's obviously Gregor Gysi
  • it was so sweet, to be his little spouse, in that foul two-by-four where we played house...

  • moooooon of alabaaaaamaaaa
