Klaus Nomi, anyone?
« on: November 03, 2007, 05:35:53 PM »
So has anyone else heard of him? I've found his work to be bizzarre in the extreme but he was really astoundingly talented.

I remember him best for his post-death cameo in The Venture Bros.

The Nomi Song is a fantastic documentary, does a wonderful job of immersing you in his world.  Such a sad ending.

I know about Klaus.  Rush Limbaugh uses his cover of "You Don't Know Me" as an update theme.  It's hilarious.   :)

It is indeed. That's actually how my dad heard of him, which is how I heard of him.

Have you been getting into Rush's private stash of OxyContin and hydrocodone? ::)
This iRiff will only be on sale for another few hours. Get it while it's cheap!
