Crispin Glover on David Letterman Show, 1987

In this classic clip, a totally paranoid and confused Crispin Glover shows up on "Late Night with David Letterman" decked out in bell-bottom pants, platform shoes and a long-hair wig. After Glover challenges a visibly shaken Dave to arm wrestling and then nearly gives him a karate kick to the head, the show's producers wisely opt for a commercial and then escort Glover out of the studio. I've always thought Glover was promoting the bizarre film, Rubin & Ed, at the time - but that flick didn't come out until 1991. Apparently, Glover's Letterman appearance coincided with the release of River's Edge. Either way, it was pure brilliance and ranks up there with the performance art of Andy Kaufman.

"Since the individual's desire to dominate his environment is not a desirable trait in a society which every day grows more and more confining, the average man must take to daydreaming." —Gore Vidal

"To me, it's really so simple, that life should be lived on the edge. You have to exercise rebellion. To refuse to tape yourself to the rules, to refuse your own success, to refuse to repeat yourself, to see every day, every year, every idea as a true challenge. Then you will live your life on the tightrope." —Man on Wire, 2008

Horror Show

"It had been the same for as long as I could remember: turn on the radio to a classical music station, light a cigarette or a cigar, open the bottle. The typer did the rest. All I had to do was be there. The whole process allowed me to continue when life itself offered very little, when life itself was a horror show. There was always the typer to soothe me, to talk to me, to entertain me, to save my ass. Basically, that's why I wrote: to save my ass, to save my ass from the madhouse, from the streets, from myself."
—Charles Bukowski, Hollywood, 1989
