Letting the freak flag fly


With the latest news of the commodification of the deaths of Theresa Duncan and Jeremy Blake, Tony Lang poses an excellent question.

Gus Van Sant teaming up with Bret Easton Ellis to make a feature out of a tragic suicide pact; Can you imagine something more blood-chillingly depressing?

I can think of one, actually; that within days of hearing (from a journalist asking questions, no less) Theresa Duncan had committed suicide, I wondered who would be first to cash in on the story of their tragedy. Congratulations, Nancy Jo Sales. You win.

With a big boo hoo for Kate Coe.
