Comment of the Day: An American Psycho

Categories: Whatever

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

We pointed to an old interview by alleged ex-wife dismemberer Grant Haze, a singer who said his greatest influences were Sting and Lionel Richie (in terms of music, not ex-wife dismembering, we assume.)

One reader noted a similarity to a fictional character.

Lionel Richie and Sting, huh?

Reminds me of "American Psycho" and its discussion of Genesis and Huey lewis...

What is it with (real and fictional) killers and 80's pop?

The prosecution should find fertile ground in some of the comments in those interviews.  Like the reason why he named his son "Gentle"--because he discovered real masculinity involved gentleness.  Or how it is such a responsibility and honor that his current wife and the kids in their blended family allows him "to lead them".  So he led the new wife to an alligator-infested creek to dump the dismembered body of the baby-mama?  His "leadership" could land the new wife on death row.  Even law enforcement is baffled as to why they drove to the wife's sister's house to dump the body--the police spokesman said something to the effect of "luckily, most criminals are stupid".  This guy sounds so articulate in his interviews; but some of the arrogance he also shows in those comments will probably be his undoing.  Too bad 4 innocent kids will suffer as a result.


Well, "American Psycho" was written in the '80's, so at the time it was just "pop" not "1980's pop."
