Well you don't have to like Jandek to post here. Let's not start getting into gradations of fanhood. Don't forget that one of the most important figures in the progression of the Corwood legend is Irwin Chusid, a guy who's done nothing but mock the dude from day one. Besides, I think the point that Jandek must prove himself to be independent of his fast-dying mystique is a very valid one- it's something everyone who thinks he or she is a fan must consider: do I really like this, or do I just like the idea of it?

As for Rufus Wainwright, you say "who (sic) 99% of his career exists because you know why." Well, we know why YOU think so. So why don't you just come out and say it? Go ahead. Call him a faggot. Us faggots (including someone EXTREMELY CENTRAL to this list) can handle it.
