More Deleted Scene(s) Than You Can Shake a Stick At!
The above is a very cute deleted scene from Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and The Magnetic Fields. It features Ms. Claudia Gonson taking photographs of Mr. Merritt and Mr. Daniel Handler, the products of which ended up in the booklet for The Gothic Archies' The Tragic Treasury. I might also add that Ms. Gonson's sock collection has always made me jealous...
And speaking of that socked songstress, the video at this link is absolutely required viewing. It features Ms. Gonson extrapolating on the newfound joys and hardships of motherhood and is, if you can believe it, several times cuter than the above video. Oh, holy Christ, what an adorable baby.
Ever the pundit, Ms. Gonson goes on to describe some of her favorite books at different junctures in her life for NY Books here.
