Man. I step away for two minutes and I find yet another conspiracy simmering away right under our very noses.
This is Dame Edith Sitwell, Woman of Letters, esteemed poet, critic, novelist, droll defender of literary modernism. She died in 1964 at the age of 77….Or did she?
This is “Trent Reznor,” as she now calls herself. There’s no mistaking it: Dame Edith is alive, beyond all explanation, and pummeling us with angry, self-pitying dirges like “My Violent Heart.”
See? Right down to the three-day mustache. Come on folks, stay on your toes! Do we really want anachronistic poetesses serving up our apocalyptic industrial metal? I for one think not.

“I was wondering… if you had read my book ‘I Lived under a Black Sun’? I MEAN, if you’d seen my eccentric stand-up act. Yeah, that’s it.”
