i guess to a lot of people, jandek has been the ultimate outsider artist recluse.  no 
information, no interviews, mysterious photos, no live shows.  those two things can be seen 
as a compromise of the "purity" of the jandek concept.  although i kind of agree with the 
person in the corwood film who said that technically the only "pure" jandek album i sthe first 
one, since it was made entirely in a vacuum.

going to order 'six and six' this week, since that one has *literally* been "sold out" for awhile.  
i trust the barcode won't harm my appreciation of the music any more than it has on my 
1000 other barcoded CDs.
