Ok, this might be the longest article I've ever read online. And I barely even know Andrew W.K. (mostly because of his Gundam song covers, really, of all things... "Ai Senshi" is *excellent*).

I had some vague notion that AWK had been briefly famous at the start of the 2000s in the USA as a "party rocker", and then his career lapsed and he had become a motivational speaker, or some such.
It's a much, much deeper rabbit hole.
Read it all, if you can. It's an effin' trip.

@renatoram I have lived in utter awe at that guy’s ability to live his authentic life.

@renatoram There was a big, wacky Timecube-like website about the conspiracy of Andrew W.K. back in 1999 or so. Maybe 2000 or 2001. I remember discussing it with my sister, and I remember where I discussed it with her, which places it in our kitchen in Boston between May 1999 and September 2001.

She was the first person to say, “I think he wrote that website”.
