The Fake Death of Andy Kaufman
Most people think that the comedian Andy Kaufman died of lung cancer on May 16, 1984. But Enrique P. believes that Kaufman faked his death. And he's put up a website where he argues his case. (Thanks to Julie H. for the link).

Hello there. I may as well blow this horn, as noone else is likely to. Andy Kaufman's death has been questioned since his imminent demise was announced in tabloids before he died. There are even those among people who knew Andy fairly well that still question his death.

Universal Studios used the website, www.andylives.org surreptiously to promote their film, Man On the Moon. I picked it up after the domain lapsed and after some guy had squatted on it for several months thereafter.

Enrique's site, www.andykaufmanlives.com, was started somtime after that, and is a diaristic list of ruminations and suppositions.

For more info, go to www.andylives.org/text.html

Thanks.

ANDY

He came like a comet through the skies,
He left before we could speak our goodbyes,
And in-between we cast forth our eyes,
To the magic and spirit of Andy.

Both to the woeful and the wise,
He was the bond that forever ties,
The bond between self and disguise,
And,for that,we love you Andy.

He caused us to think and realize,
The boundaries existant in truth and lies,
He give us hope for further tries,
To claim for ourselves the ultimate prize:

The admiration life often denies,
All the world over, long after one dies,
So, it is with pride that my voice decries,
"Godspeed unto you, Andy!"

Some folks, they won't accept your demise ---
Too many "hows" and "ifs" and "whys",
They insist that,once again,you'll rise,
But,whether or not, it still applies:

When one succeeds where each odd defies,
And, out of each low,creates new highs,
Regardless of name or shape or size,
Therein lies the essence of Andy.

Around 9 years ago in 2001, I saw Andy Kaufman at a bar called Pats II Cocktails in Redondo Beach, CA. I was then a 19 year old, working next door at a record store. He was tall, slightly overweight, older... his face, the mole on his cheek was a dead give away. He was alone and he was quiet and did not talk to me. He had a strange aura. He struck me as a shady person, a con-artist. I cannot ever shake the memory. I have told people from time-to-time, but it wasn't until the Jaoquin Phoenix prank lead me to links about Andy Kaufman that I realized there were forums for discussions about Mr. Kaufman.
