What the Hell is Going On?!

Man. I step away for two minutes and I find yet another conspiracy simmering away right under our very noses.

Dame Edith Sitwell

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?

Trent Reznor

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.”

The inexpicable

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.

**UPDATE BY BILL: Excuse me for intruding, Kevin. But this whole thing goes much deeper than you think. Observe:
