  1. This is really cool to hear. It actually would be cool to hear everyone’s story about how they came across the Andy Kaufman phenomenon and how long they have been following it. I can’t remember if I directed you towards this link or not, but here is a song I created about him, in case you would like to hear it. You have my permission to play it on the Rampler, should you choose to do so.

  2. can’t remember when or why so i have to invent all that to justify the ungodly amount of time i’ve spent on this one. when? maybe he was that idiot in the forum i went to seek help in after my husband was diagnosed with ptsd in 2000 or 2001. it has been alluded to. or maybe that’s just what someone wanted me to think. why? I DON’T KNOW WHY. that’s just one example. if it’s an internet hoax, why us? why now?

    This is the first letter from me that maddox/king/andykaufman/whoever posted to his page and trust me, it was a joke on my part. written out of frustration.

    An email from Kay

    you are not a king, you are not the king, you are KING. Is this how you are known in important, historical, world-changing circles?
    are you known as KING because of what you do or who you are?
    should we be worried?
    or Kay Oh because I don’t feel Oh Kay.

    His reply: I am KING

    An email from Kay

    After I shared the personal message I received from KING with the crew at the allusion forum, someone posted something about David Letterman introducing Andy to Nathan McCoy, a young man dying of cancer. Is that true? They also said that the yearbook photograph KING sent me depicted Nathan. Now, this photo does resemble Andy somewhat but it is definitely NOT Andy’s yearbook photo as I’ve seen his online. Did KING send me a picture of Nathan McCoy? If so, I am definitely starting to lean toward believing he faked it. The personal message written on the back blew me away because it spoke so well to the hope I keep for the world and my fellow human beings.
    Also, it was mentioned by “Maddox” that you had sent a group puzzle to him. Will we be learning anything more about this puzzle soon?
    As you have never answered any of the inquiries and emails I’ve sent over the years I don’t really expect you to answer this one, but it would be a pleasant surprise if you did!

    no reply

    An email from Kat

    I’m goin for broke and creating a reality that looks good enough to share with the whole world.
    it’ll be a fun ride while it lasts.
    i believe in magic. the good kind. 🙂

    his reply: I feel it is better to share the concept of me than attempt to own the concept of me.

    So andy fans, hope that helps some to know my part in the crazy. I think it’s all in our heads. Coming off our hands. LOL

  3. The most historic event ever will take place on Sunday morning November 9, 2008

    ftr, i met this one guy in a political forum years ago. He goes by the handle StealthUK. For some reason, the date November 9 popped up in my research. I think some big ppv wrestling event was taking place. Anyway, this stealth dude would kid around with me and a couple of times he’s joked (?) that he’s andy kaufman. If he’s not, he knows him or he knows I’m stalking him and is making fun. lol

    Here’s a little part of a private conversation we had on 08/11/08 (i hope he doesn’t mind my sharing it)
