early comment[edit]

In response to DuncanCummings tagging of "uncited statements" ("citation needed"), I have begun to insert dated citations for the quotes. These are being taken from press quotes and reviews from Gary Lucas's website and other online sources, with his permission. Gyre2k

Gods and Monsters[edit]

This is currently linking to an unrelated movie - it either needs to be re-named or unlinked SatuSuro 14:00, 8 November 2006 (UTC)

I delinked Gods and Monsters, it leads to a movie not related to this article. There is an album title by that name but its by "I Am Kloot"[1] and also not related to this title. Added a citation needed.--Dakota 18:35, 21 November 2006 (UTC)

Speedy delete request denied[edit]

This article was listed for speedy deletion but after reviewing I have declined to do so - while the first two paragraphs resemble the text here they are not identical. The article has a long history from multiple contributors, which means it does not satisfy WP:CSD G12. Qwghlm 23:10, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Accepted. For the record though, there's only really been one contributor and he's only made edits to this article - perhaps this is a case of WP:AUTO. The editor needs to understand that this is an encyclopaedia and is not a place to insert promotional material about yourself however tempting that opportunity may be. I hope that he or someone else can devote some time to rewriting the article in an neutral, encyclopaedic tone. —Moondyne 23:34, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Article style and referencing[edit]

I've had a go at updating this article to more neutral and appropriate style, and better information and cites. It does need the many quotes, claims, and accolades to be cited though. FT2 (Talk | email) 22:07, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Gary Lucas / Frank Wood[edit]

Point of confusion: this article, as well as the article on Frank Wood, and IMDB, and Gary Lucas' web site all say that Lucas was portrayed in this film by Frank Wood. But the film's credits list Gary Lucas as being played by Gary Lucas (I am looking at the credit roll on the DVD right now, and assume it is taken directly from the theatrical print). Who to believe? The first impulse is to go with the multiple sources that agree with each other, but we all know how misinformation breeds on the internet once it is started. One person copies and pastes, and another, and another... Seems like someone should get confirmation from the film maker?--Nonseq (talk) 21:08, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
