Somewhat related - have you ever heard of the musician Jonathan Coulton?

yes and his stuff is nice unless placed in the middle to buff out a live Riff Tracks gig. so totally did not go well with the Guys from MST3K. or at least not that time.

Ignore that and check out his songs directly at www.jonathancoulton.com. All of his songs are available to listen to for free online, and some are even free to download. Specifically, you need to listen to "Re: Your Brains," plus I also like "Ikea" and "Code Monkey." I'm still exploring the rest of his music.

i have all three of those songs and more already downloaded to my comp. as i said i do like his stuff but was really put off of him for a while by how much he did not work with the special Plan 9 From Outer Space live Riff tracks show i went to. I mean it was Delicious MST3K goodness to one of the greatest movies ever and they even found a new short about stewardesses to MST as well. but his songs bogged it down so hard.

You'd cry, too, if you were covered in ape shit.

WOW she was old when she died. 96
Cool info from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fay_Wray.
Wray was approached to appear in a small cameo for the 2005 remake of King Kong. She met with Naomi Watts who was to play the Ann Darrow role. Before filming commenced, however, Wray died in her sleep on August 8, 2004, in her Manhattan apartment of natural causes (writers of the remake did honor her, however, with a comical mention in that film). She was 96 years old, only 38 days shy of her 97th birthday. Wray was interred at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Hollywood, California. After her death was announced the lights on the Empire State Building were extinguished for 15 minutes in her memory.

Didn't she become dependant on a big, hairy, abusive boyfriend, who later committed suicide-by-cop?
