no wig collection - i think if he made profit from selling records, all the money went into the purchase of paintings by Mark Ryden, Todd Schorr, Camille Rose Garcia, Robert Williams etc. - dunno what to think about it - he released some essential records and his artwork and ads were always awesome - i think he stopped the label at the right time (miss deringer & the ettes ain't my cup of tea to say the least!) - anyway, i really enjoyed the film because i followed the label from start to finnish and it was great to look behind the curtains and into the mind of an extravagant collector!

I was always amazed at how many delusional musicians were convinced he was not only gonna make a killing off their single, but that his plan was in place to burn them before a deal was ever signed and a recording ever made. I know of two independent to films that would not have been shot to completion or edited for release (in a reasonable amount of time) without his sizable last minute cash infusions. He's a mensch in my book.
