    Gotta be kidding me.

    He lives one block over from my house (on Indiana Ave, believe it or not). We've spoken a couple of times about art and photography. Kind of reclusive, but once he started talking about something interesting (other than the fact that he's a famous dude), he was a great GREAT guy all around.

    Gonna miss seeing him around the hood. And the cloud of smoke that always followed him and his teenage son.

    RIP, my good neighbor, RIP.

    Blue Velvet is the most underrated thriller ever. Great performance. His best imo.

    Ew, MaCo. I thought Blue Velvet was shallow and smutty. I mean, his most memorable line in that movie is, "I'll **** anything that moves." Ick.
