The Man of Mythological Proportions! Oh, the mystery!

I was listening to a summer mix CD in my car (yeah, it's summertime, let's bust out the mixes!), and it just so happened that an Electric Six song found it's way onto the mix YET AGAIN. I am going to spare you the details of my mix (I am the worst mix CD maker ever), but the Electric Six song did get me thinking:

Who the hell is Dick Valentine?

I have never met the guy. I am unsure if I would even want to meet him. He is shrouded in mystery, taking on whatever disguise he deems fit for the day/show/music video. He might as well be wearing a mask! At all times. This would be excessive. Just a bit. Maybe Dick Valentine is just a tangible incarnation of all the excesses of the world, rolled into one man.

So this mystery man, what makes him so mysterious? I don't know. I have never met him. That, my friends, is part of the mystery. But I know people who have met him. I would just rather not bother those people about it.* Maybe DV** is so mysterious that even the people closest to him don't even really know him.

Wikipedia doesn't know him.

The Myspace doesn't know him.

Youtube claims to know him, but just has lots of videos of him.

Same with Flickr. But with pictures.

He seems to live a charmed life. Maybe he has magical powers. I do not know for sure. Thus, the mystery continues...

I would like to interview him someday. But it would be a top-secret interview (over the phone, I don't know if I can go face-to-face with this guy***). And no one would ever be able to read it. I wouldn't write anything down or record it. I would like Dick Valentine to remain a mystery to everyone else. I am selfish like that.

*Although, I was told that he does voice-over work. I do not want to know what he does voice-over work for. I would like to be surprised.
**do his friends call him that? Further more, what DO his friends call him? Does he even have friends?
***because he might, in fact, have magical powers and might be able to hypnotize me. But if his powers are strong enough, he could probably do it on the phone too.

You're kidding, right? His name is Tyler Spencer. His friends call him Tyler.

No. I'm the first anonymous. I didn't say dumb, and I didn't say I'm the nice one. I'm the first one! It's not dumb, I just didn't know if you were serious.

That was the most awesome anonymous drama ever on this blog.

It was so polite.
