"People don't seem to get it. He wasn't obsessed with Elvis, he was obsessed with the celebrity of Elvis. He was fascinated at what made people react to Elvis the way they did. When Elvis died he was just as fascinated with how they reacted to his death. He read every tabloid. He studied every sighting. He was more mesmerized with the death of Elvis than he was the celebrity of Elvis. He used to say 'what if...  what if he is alive somewhere watching all this?' 'That really would be heaven on earth.' Then he would get that look. That look he got when he wasn't just thinking a thought, he was feeling a thought." - A Friend

 Danika Patrick“Andy would begin doing things he did not tell George about, such as plotting his own death, which was nothing if not the penultimate bombing.” “Throughout the next year he would posit the idea to other people - to Zmuda, certainly, as well as his sister and his brother and also Mimi Lambert.”

 Danika Patrick"He had been waiting for the cancer. Danica Patrick He saw something oddly romantic about it. He was going to use cancer to save his career. Cancer was how he would fake his death, he told them".  Sir Henry Neville Andy Kaufman

 Danika Patrick"He heard about the healers who pulled clumps of disease out of bodies by magic. He and Lynne found one in the California desert; some clumps were extracted which looked like animal intestines"

 Danika Patrick"The brace had browned from sweat and folly. He wore it and wore it and kept on wearing it and it became a wreath of perpetual martyrdom--and martyrs, everyone knew, were supposed to die. Of course, he had been giving it serious thought. Most certainly, it was on his mind. the idea excited him very much. He had discussed it with eminent hoaxer Alan Abel, who had managed to do it but then called a press conference immediately after his obituary was published. Abel had not properly lingered in death. Elvis, he liked to believe, was doing it well. "  Andy Kaufman

From Bob Zmuda

Andy: What if I faked my own death?  

Bob: Count me out. That’s too much

Andy: But Why? It’s perfect!

eBob: I’ll tell you why, because faking your own death is illegal. I’d be an accomplice to a crime. I don’t want to do that for a living, be a criminal. Besides, it’s nothing new, that’s why it’s a crime… people fake their deaths everyday.

Andy: They do? Why?

Bob: Sure. Insurance fraud, child support, bankruptcy, maybe they pissed off the mob, you know, lots of reasons. You know, some people want to disappear and start again from scratch, a whole new life. No, Kaufman, if you really wanted to fake your death, you couldn’t tell anybody, and I mean anybody.

Andy: Why?

Bob: Well, because I don’t think anyone would be able to stand up to questioning. Plus they have lie detectors and stuff. You couldn’t tell a soul. Not a soul.

 Skyler StoneMiddle of the night, 1980 (4 years before Andy’s “death”)

 Danica Patrick Andy called Zmuda. It happened often. “Andy was the kind of guy who, when he came up with an idea in the middle of the night, he had to talk with you right then. So we met at Canter’s, and I said, ‘So what is it?’ He said, ‘This is the greatest idea ever! This is the greatest put-on of all time!’ Now, at this time, Elvis had died, and there were already rumors going around about did Elvis fake his death, did Jim Morrison fake his death. Andy said, ‘You know, if some celebrity really did this, do you know how big it would be? How legendary it would be?’

“And don’t get me wrong: Andy was always looking to be legendary. Always looking to be legendary. So I knew where he was going with this, but I was tired. I said, ‘So . . .?’ And he said, ‘I’m thinking about faking my death. What do you think about that concept?’ I said, ‘Andy, I think it’s absolutely brilliant. But count me out. I don’t wanna hear any more about it.’

“He said, ‘Why?’ I said, ‘Because it’s illegal to fake your death — I think it’s a felony. Because there’s insurance fraud, there’s premiums paid, you’re a member of AFTRA, of SAG. People fake their deaths all the time for insurance money, or they don’t wanna pay child support or whatever. If you’re really serious about this, you gotta take that into consideration.

“‘And besides that, I’m not gonna lie to your parents that you’re dead when you’re not. I don’t think you could ask anyone to do that.  

“‘I think it’s a great idea, but don’t ever bring it up to me again. Get it?’

“And he said, ‘Got it.’ And that was it.”

________________________________________________________________________________

 Skyler StoneLynne Margulies  

“Yeah, we used to discuss the proper — you know, I thought he was just kidding — but what would be the ‘proper’ amount of time to go away for, after he ‘died.’ And at first it was 10 years, but then he decided, no, 10 years wasn’t enough. Twenty years would be good. Ten years — he could see someone going away for that long. But 20 years . . .”

 Skyler StoneExcerpt from “The Tony Clifton Story” written by Andy Kaufman & Bob Zmuda 
“the camera pulls back so that the frozen frame is seen on the film editing console, where Andy sits and now addresses the camera to introduce himself as Andy Kaufman, maker of the Tony Clifton story, and he goes on to say that on July 18, 1980, with three scenes left to be completed in the film, Tony Clifton, age Forty-seven, died of lung cancer at Cedars-Sanai Medical Center in Los Angeles” Danika Patrick

 Skyler StoneJessica 

My friend's dad was in Jamaica in June of 1984. He was in the elevator going up to his hotel room when a guy who was a dead-ringer for Kaufman walked on. He was such a dead-ringer, in fact, that Scott's dad said, jokingly, "Hey, aren't you supposed to be dead?" "Kaufman" looked straight at him and said, "I don't know what you're talking about." (strange reply, in my opinion. If someone asked me if I was supposed to be dead, I'd be like, "Huh?") Scott's dad says it sure as hell sounded like Kaufman, so he pushed on and said, "Anyone ever tell you you look like Andy Kaufman?" "Andy" replied. "I have never heard of Andy Kaufman in my life". And said nothing else until he quickly exited the elevator. An interesting fact. . . When Scott's dad pronounced his name, he pronounced it incorrectly, as in "Cough-man", but "Andy" pronounced it correctly even though he had "never heard of Andy Kaufman". Skyler Stone
Well, that's my story. It's not made up, I promise you. Scott's dad swears on his life that he met Andy Kaufman that day, but I wouldn't know. It could have just been a look-a-like with a strange attitude.

 Skyler StoneFrank Ford
I was led here by my son's good friend, Jessica. I would like to clear something up about my Andy sighting in the elevator. The man I spoke with DID, in fact, have a short beard and moustache. Having been a huge Taxi fan, I recognized him as Andy Kaufman immediately. At the time, I knew nothing about the man, other than his stint on the show. After meeting with him on the elevator, I did some more research into his character, and became 101% convinced that the prankster was, indeed, the man on the elevator. He seemed very nervous at my comments and quick to get away from me. I DID meet Kaufman that day. I would stake my life on it.

I have lived in Taos, New Mexico for 2 years. Andy K. is here and it doesn't seem to be the most important kept secret locally... people just seem to respect that all men have their reasons for living private lives. I didn't know he had any kind of following until I heard people talking about him after leaving the co-op and google searched his name. I don't see what the big deal is. Peace

Hi again, so now you guys have given me a new hobby. I feel like a private detective... so I snooped a bit and asked a few questions... here's what I've heard- according to two people (I know them fairly well on friendly terms so I wont say their names) that both donate time to the co-op... its him, he doesn't talk to anyone and he's pretty weird all around, but supposedly its definitely him. I also found out my friends think he's hooked up with the llama foundation... a new age cult here, they keep to themselves and these are real deal old hippie types (very common here) im going to talk to the only person i know who grew up here whose mom is with the llama people and ask if he's ever heard of him.. but I don't know what else to do. I'll try to help you guys any way I can. I won't lie, this is fun. Take care, Patrick 007

Hi There... Agent Patrick 007 reporting in today. I've asked what few friends i have around here who have lived here for more than a couple years, this is a transient town... ski bums like myself, young hippies, you get the picture. Well anyway, a friend of mine who works at the Taos cow which is an organic ice cream place near the mountain says she has heard that Andy Kaufman goes there, she herself has never seen him nor really knows who he is other than the guy from Taxi (I really didn't either until a week ago) but she has heard from people of him being somewhat of a regular... but please take this face value.. this girls a bit of a whacko. You have to understand that Taos is kind of weird in that there's a lot of land and little communities here, you can disappear if you really want to... people live off P.O. Boxes.. not mailing addresses. Julia Roberts and Mel Gibson live here.. I know where they live, but have never seen them. My friend says there's been an open mic night at the Taos Inn for years, I myself have never gone. Hope this helps! Take care, Patrick

I met someone I believe to be Andy back in the late 80's. I was living as a beach bum in Santa Monica. He use to wander with the homeless crowd. He said his name was Eric. I found out later it was Eric Presley although he never told me this. We became fairly good friends, he was a blast. One night he would be like he was homeless digging in the trash and sleeping under the pier. Then later he would be a street musician doing bad Elvis and Everly brothers songs. Sometimes he would be wrapped in a blanket like and invalid in a wheelchair asking for money. He would sit in a cafe playing crazy homeless and yell, "leave me alone, I'm writing my script! BJ needs it this afternoon and I must finish it" He was very cool and free spirited. He would go to the Mexican restaurant at the Santa Monica pier and just walk in with a guitar and act like he was Spanish. He did call himself Enrique then, when he was talking like he was Spanish. That is how I found this board. I heard about the concert and started searching on words and names I remember that Summer I hung out with him. even though he said he was homeless I followed him a couple time to a rundown hotel on Ocean Ave called the hotel California. He stayed in room 22. That is how I found out his name was Eric Presley. I went to the front desk and they said he rents a room month to month. One time I said you know you look like that dude from taxi and he went off. He started screaming and throwing things. He scared the nuts out of me. Later he apologized. He said the he knew Kaufman before he died. He said they had gone into a venture together called Andy incorporated. He said he had gotten screwed so bad by Kaufman that he lost everything. That is why he was homeless and had to live on the streets. He tells me this while we sit in his hotel room, but that didn't matter to him. just like walking into a Mexican restaurant with a big black mustache and singing la bam ba at the top of his lungs. Everybody knew he wasn't Mexican but nobody cared, not even the staff. This sounds odd in retrospect, but back then I didn't thin much of it. I just figured he died his hair blonde grew a long biker beard and wanted out of the spotlight. Or lost his fame and was kind of messed up about it. It wasn't until recently that I discovered you guys think he faked it on purpose to get attention or something.

Thank you. I would like to say, when I meet Mr. Andy Kaufman at the hospital of Jun Labo, I thought to the time that he was in the perfect health. I remained in the same hotel as Andy Kaufman, who was the Hyatt terrace hotel in Baguio City, and ate much in the same restaurant there and sometimes at the dinner with him. He had good appetite and seems healthy. He said never that he suffered from the cancer and I think that he was there, for seeing Jun Labo for healthful the experience. I was surprised, when I read that he died, if it were a trick. I think in such a way.

June 5, 1984

After just four weeks of twice-daily treatments Kaufman changed from a depressed, helpless near-vegetable to a happy, energetic man confident that soon he would return to his show business career. The change in Andy was amazing. When I first saw Andy he was thin, emaciated and frequently used a wheelchair. I saw he was incapable of dressing himself and was in great pain. He was glassy eyed and he never ate much. He was scared. "The American doctors have told me my cancer is incurable and that I don't have many months to live. This is my last hope" He (Kaufman) had to be lifted onto the treatment table. Then Labo began kneading Kaufman's body with his hands. Suddenly Labo appeared to remove bloody, oozing tissue from Kaufman's chest. And at each treatment over the next four days, Labo appeared to remove bloody tissue from Andy's body. On the fifth day, Andy said, 'something is wrong - I have pain!' He raised his hand and poointed to the back of his head. His eyes were filled with fear. Labo turned Kaufman over so that he was facedown and began to search Andy's head, which the star had shaved.

The main reason I have decided to set up this page is the fact that I do not see anyone discussing the concept that Andy Kaufman really did not die on May 16, 1984. I read a lot of info discussing opinions about Andy and his performances. On many occasions someone will bring up the possibility that he faked his death but always with a wink, wink, nudge, nudge, attitude. The occasional message board comment will start out "do you think he could be alive?" then after a few replies someone throws out the death certificate or some other "fact" and the discussion ends.

I am taking this opportunity to say that I have always firmly believed and will always firmly believe that Andy did not die on May 16, 1984.

An email from Daniel

Puzzlementary, what is about?

It was decided that this project, which concerns Andy Kaufman faking his death, needed a descriptive label. Since nothing like this project has ever been done before, it was determined that no word existed to label it. Stephen Maddox was assigned the task of creating a new word that had never been used before. The word was needed to label this project, a project that has never been attempted before. The word he created was Puzzlementary. This is a Puzzlementary.

A lot of people on the message board refer to this picture as a puzzle.

Is it a puzzle? Would you explain?

Yes, the picture was divided into 10 pieces. As people found the pieces they emailed us the information and we placed them in the puzzle. There are still 2 pieces missing. 

So are you the only one in possession of that photo?

It would appear so.

An email from Jerry

I still can't believe he would go so far as to commit a crime.

Who said he committed a crime? He wasn't the one that  signed the death certificate. He didn't claim his estate. If he was healed in the Philippines, moved directly from there to Shri lanka, and became a spiritual teacher, what crime did he commit? A monk not reading the papers or watching television is not a crime as long as he pays his taxes. How is he supposed to know he is dead? He never said he was dead. Everyone else said he was dead. They said the person on the hospital bed on May 16th 1984 was him, he didn't. This might be why those close to the situation don't go out of their way to say he didn't.

An email from John G

But he committed a crime if someone else received treatment as Andy Kaufman.

Who said Andy Kaufman ever received treatment? Are you aware of any documented instance (other than hearsay) of Andy Kaufman saying he had cancer? Any documented instance (other than hearsay) of Andy Kaufman saying he had cancer treatment? How do you know the person dying of cancer didn't become Andy Kaufman at the moment the death certificate was created? What if the name Andy Kaufman had never been uttered until the death certificate was created? What if Andy Kaufman was thousands of miles away when the death certificate was created?

An email from McRadar

I have heard Andy hated LA. Do you know if this is true? Why would he hate LA?

I would not know. It is possible he shares my feelings of amusement, not hatred, for places such as LA. When an individual places an additional importance on themselves through use of their imagination it tends to be humorous. When an entire community does it, it is that much more entertaining. I have never met a larger home or faster car that has altered the decaying process while in the grave. Throat' star

Kaufman could have faked his death, but you talk of Kaufman being the master illusionist and such. Here's a theory for you. What if Kaufman did all of this Faking his death stuff, talking to people about it and such because he wanted to live on after he did die. The people forever would be confused about whether he faked or didn't and he knew that? I'm a firm believer that no one wants to find what they claim to look for. Such stuff as bigfoot or whatever, if they truly wanted to find it or prove it doesn't exist, then the whole Bigfoot mystery would no longer be bugging people. This also goes for Andy Kaufman, it is possible to go to his grave and take DNA evidence to match it with Kaufman's or maybe even his daughter's if they have no record of Kaufman's. If that was to be done then it would be solid proof that Kaufman did not go to his grave and may still linger in another country or whatever. Don't you think so? Why not just do that?

Because I frequently state that I believe he did not die on May 16, 1984 in no way means that I do not know that he did not die on May 16, 1984. Such a test would serve me no purpose.

An email from  Tijl

I'm a Belgian student trying to gauge just how avant-garde Andy really was (quite in my opinion). Your site is intruiging to be sure, but what about Kaufman's incessant drive to become really veddy veddy famous? If he did in fact fake his death, during what was a low point in his career, wouldn't this ambition urge him to surface much much sooner (seeing it has been more than twenty years)? I know Andy (or his bubbling twin, or whoever) wanted an audience before all else, but it seems hard to believe he's staging fist fights on some solitary beach in Aruba or on the slopes of an Asian mountain to indulge a dozen spaced out hippies eating tofu on toast? And yes I am aware that his hoaxes were never meant to be exposed (thus revealing them as hoaxes), and yes he is the master of Baudrillard's simulacrum (coney island IS disneyland), but still...seems hard to believe he would pass up the opportunity to shock. Perhaps, in keeping with your site's dedication to the spirit of AK, you could let a Belgian student (inept at computer hermeneutics) in on a little more: it would be blended into an insignificant 4000-word paper on the avant-garde (which will have the emphasis throughout), submitted to the staff of the English faculty of a Belgian university (KUL), destined, after marking, to disappear into the dusty filing cabinet of a professor who is likely never to have heard of Andy Kaufman (Man on the Moon went straight to video in Belgium). And even if he had, he would shrug at the hidden implication of a faked death lingering in a marginalised footnote.

 
On the off chance you ever see Andy, tell him he has changed performance art forever, tell him too much macrobiotic food will give you the runs, tell him he should have a listen to el senor coconut conga's transforming "smoke on the water"
 
with regards,
 Tijl

Andy Kaufman is in the mind of the beholder

An email from Jervis

Enrique, I have always wondered why Bob Zmuda started Comic relief after Andy's "death" and raised over 50 million dollars for the homeless. Do you think it is because he knew Andy planned on living on the streets after he "died" or do you think it was guilt due to the fight he had with Andy over how the homeless are treated?

I wouldn't know. I have had no contact with Robert Zmuda for more than 20 years.

I read somewhere that the Kaufmans were suing Bob Zmuda awhile back. Do you know why this was? Was it because they were offended by the things Bob was saying about Andy and a death hoax? Or were they nervous about things Bob was saying about Andy and a death hoax?

I wouldn't know. I have had no contact with Robert Zmuda for more than 20 years.

What's up with all that hidden text on your enrique page? Do you
 reckon Andy, Piano-Man and Sywald Skeid are all the same guy? What
 makes you think that? And what is Farahnik Holdings, Great Neck?

 All the best,

We work for a Puzzlementary company over here in the US. We are developing a Puzzlementary about the actual meaning of life. Andy is still Andy not Piano Man or Skeid. The hidden text is to make new friends.

Enrique, Do you think 20 years is long enough? Perhaps not long enough time for freedom and a carefree life. Trading fame and fortune for peace of mind and happiness could even the scales for a person of great intellect and creativity. Being able to goof off and become anyone you wish to be at any given moment perhaps could bring a warmth and challenge to a otherwise cruel world. A true actor on the stage we call life, can adapt and become anyone or everyone in a given moment. Perhaps Andy is pranking Taos this week and Belen next. I have lived in New Mexico my entire life and have met more famous and infamous persons laying low than you can shake a stick at. The population is large, but the people here are easy on celebrities. Ace Freely visits and dines with us and never gets bothered. People recognize, but rarely gawk at celebs in our state, they are treated human rather than a god. Enrique,Andy,Tony,Eric,Joe or whoever we choose to be today, just remember what a great man once told me.......Stay high, but fly low. Joey

That is why I have never needed to look for Andy Kaufman. It's existence is irrelevant to me. Joey

For those of us that repeatedly read our own emotion guided views into it tell us in summary what this is not and what it is about.

It is not about a current life, it is not about a fake death, it is not about a person. It is about not dying and the significance of it. It is not about Andy Kaufman.

IT HAS BEEN CALCULATED THAT IF EVERYONE IN THE UNITED STATES DID NOT PURCHASE A DROP OF GASOLINE FOR ONE DAY AND ALL AT THE SAME TIME, THE OIL COMPANIES WOULD CHOKE ON THEIR STOCKPILES. AT THE SAME TIME IT WOULD HIT THE ENTIRE INDUSTRY WITH A NET LOSS OF OVER 4.6 BILLION DOLLARS WHICH AFFECTS THE BOTTOM LINES OF THE OIL COMPANIES. THEREFORE Sept 10TH HAS BEEN FORMALLY DECLARED "STICK IT TO THEM DAY" AND THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION SHOULD NOT BUY A SINGLE DROP OF GASOLINE THAT DAY. THE ONLY WAY THIS CAN BE DONE IS IF YOU FORWARD THIS E-MAIL TO AS MANY PEOPLE A S YOU CAN AND AS QUICKLY AS YOU CAN TO GET THE WORD OUT. WAITING ON THIS ADMINISTRATION TO STEP IN AND CONTROL THE PRICES IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE REDUCTION AND CONTROL IN PRICES THAT THE ARAB NATIONS PROMISED TWO WEEKS AGO? REMEMBER ONE THING, NOT ONLY IS THE PRICE OF GASOLINE GOING UP BUT AT THE SAME TIME AIRLINES ARE FORCED TO RAISE THEIR PRICES, TRUCKING COMPANIES ARE FORCED TO RAISE THEIR PRICES WHICH EFFECTS PRICES ON EVERYTHING THAT IS SHIPPED. THINGS LIKE FOOD, CLOTHING, BUILDING MATERIALS, MEDICAL SUPPLIES ETC. WHO PAYS IN THE END? WE DO! WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. IF THEY DON'T GET THE MESSAGE AFTER ONE DAY, WE WILL DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN. SO DO YOUR PART AND SPREAD THE WORD.

I only said how "enrique" would fake his death. The way Andy did not die was much simpler. He actually had little involvement in the final series of events. It was more of a parental responsibility.

From Steve

"The other camp, Empowerment, has weaned a generation of young people on the belief that simply aspiring to something is the same as achieving it, that a sense of 'positive self worth' is more valuable than developing talents or skills. Those in this second category tend to approach life as if it were an endless succession of New Year’s resolutions: It’s always what they’re going to do. Meanwhile, the months and years pass".

Daniels then dug up a woman's corpse, staged a fiery car accident to fake her husband's death, and had him re-emerge as her new boyfriend.

I found your "Andy Kaufman Lives" page doing some research on Andy Kaufman, obviously, and noticed your name was "Andy Milonakis." Is this the same guy that has the funny short clips on the net and the less funny, but still funny stint on MTV? Just curious, Cody.

No I am Juan. It Is possible that the same guy that has the funny short clips on the net and the less funny, but still funny stint on MTV is the person named Andy that you ask about but as to funny or less funny would be nothing more than a matter of opinion. For example when a human says "I can't decide if the movie was good or bad" it is as though the celluloid will somehow change it's properties once a conclusion has been reached. Never fully realizing that opinion is a belief nothing more nothing less. There is no right or wrong good or bad better or worse there is only perception which is opinion. When the majority favor an opinion it is still merely an opinion. For example the belief that a human is above an animal that it is perfectly fine to kill and eat an animal that if an animal is struck by a motor vehicle and left to rot on the side of the road rather than call an ambulance the fact that no dead animal count will be taken in the gulf is strictly a majority opinion in my opinion which is fine in my opinion. Majority rules but is neither right or wrong since there is truly no such thing in my opinion. Therefore I am Juan.

hey I cant find on your webisite your theory of how andy faked his death or how enrique would do it? Have you posted either? If not could you, i would lvoe to hear your thory on how he did it? I think all of your info is accuarate and i love how you don't need to know all answeres and you can let andy be a legen. Thanx for everything Sincerly Jarrett H.

I once posited a theory on how one might fake their death merely as a way to get people to explore the possibility. In reality I know andy did not fake his death. It is not my place to share how he did it. Not at this time.

I don't believe he could just give everything up and go away for so long. How could his ego take such a hit. It does not seem possible.

He had nowhere  else to go. He had no more to give. He had to wait for me. I would know what to do next.

am i right or indeed just dense? the format of the page always seems jumbled. thanks. i mean i must be. i would just like to enjoy it un-confused. jenn. i'm not asking for some revolutionary answer. i have frequented andykaufmanlives.com several times. i could be dense. steve rocco andy milonakis enrique and sir henry neville. but i enjoy the website as much as i can in my confusion. i refuse to practice proper capitalization. the more recent updates seems more cryptic and it seems the sites administrator's name changes more than prince.

 

cryptic is as cryptic doesn't.

I've been researching the hell out of this for quite sometime. And all it seems I can come across is recycled information and massive roadblock built by this website and all people and message boards associated with it.
 
Once again, I was never looking for a revolutionary answer, but trying to capture the intrigue of conspiracy theory for an article that I am writing. Intrigue that was once inspired by this theory and this website and message boards, etc, but was soon killed by the same.
 
Whether Kaufman be dead or alive, whether he died in 1984 of cancer or otherwise, he achieved the unsurpassable grande finale. But websites like this with their "cryptic is as cryptic doesn't" attitude quelches the spirit for everyone.
 
Thank you eversomuch, killjoy.
Jenn

You have to be a christian to be an "atheist in 2005 a.d.".
To be "hip" or "cool" are labels created by people who don't understand the state they are trying to describe. A child doesn't want to learn, a child learns because he wants. This is why most adults could never master such tasks as communicating with speech, reading, or walking. Just as the atheist doesn't realize he is a christian by labeling himself an atheist which by popular opinion is the christian term for a person who does not believe as they do in 2005 a.d..

I would whole heartedly like to condemn you for posting fabrication on the internets. Andy Kaufman is NOT alive! I don't really appreciate you tryin to make folks think so either. Now what you should really be doin' is devotin' your free time to promotin' me, an international singin' sensation. THEN you might get somewhere! I might even let you come out to Vegas and have a run with some of my chickadis backstage. Who knows? Anyways, until you smarten the hell up and stop whore mongering Kaufman's corpse, maybe you'd like to check out some cuts from my upcoming album "Ol' Blue Balls Is Back!" on Cliftones Productions.

Now go be enlightened and hopefully you can cut the crap with this fuckin' Kaufman lives bullshit!

Yours,
Tony C.

I have repeatedly stated that this has nothing to do with him being alive. This is about him not dying on May 16, 1984. Those who hang on to some hope that he is alive do not seem to appreciate the fact that he did not die on May 16 1984. They do not want to know that he did not die on May 16 1984. Most of them would be content with man on the moon part 2. I say it is a fool that waits for a man who may or may not be alive. Revel in the knowledge he did not die on May 16 1984. I believe that is all we need. For all I know or care he may be dead. This is not relevant to me. The relevance lies in the lack of death on May 16 1984. I have not spoken to Andrew in close to a year he could easily be dead but there was no death on May 16 1984. Those who want Elvis to be alive simply do not want him to be dead. They do not care what it would take to not be dead, they just want a return of some sort. This misses the point completely in my opinion. I believe it is the same with Andrew Kaufman. To want him to be alive is to accept that he did not die on May 16 1984 but miss the point completely.

Is the real Andy Kaufman part of your puzzlementary?

Yes. Only one person can fill the role of the son who has risen.

Don't you feel stupid when you realize millions of people believe Andy Kaufman is dead and you are one of the only nuts who think he is alive?

Billions believed the world was flat. They are called "mistaken certainties". You are limited by your mistaken certainties.

You are a fucking liar. This is bullshit. You said at the top of this page that a new part of the picture would be exposed for thirty minutes on December 26. Then you changed it to December 25. Then on the evening of December 24 you changed it December 24. How in the hell are we supposed to look for it if you keep lying to us.

I did not say it wouldn't be shown on the 26th. I didn't say it would not be shown on the 25th. It was in fact shown for 30 minutes on all three days.
