…beauty is reliable only when it’s linked to death or hopelessness, even to evil. Like epileptic Dostevsky, ear-slicing Van Gogh, impotent Dali, homosexual Allen Ginsberg, or movie starlet Frances Farmer, who was thrown into an asylum and lobotomized during the McCarthy witch hunts. Or Irish singer Gavin Friday, who wore thick layers of brightly colored makeup all his life… these people are like wildflowers, bursting with vigor and living and dying alone.
