Courtney: Help wanted

Courtney Love has been busy on her blog, first to post a couple of situations vacant:

is anyone insanely clean neatfreak near malibu? i need a non thieving non freaky housekeeper
also i need we need a documentarist, someone to document our studio as we go in wedsday, and i have ALOT of work to do til then and i wont just hand this to hbo or bbc 2 or bravo and god forbid not vh1! A DOCUMENATRY NOT A REALITY SHOW. get in touch with jason whp will further put you in touch with jason wienberg at untitled.
and am looking for a young PA type someone whor eally wants to get nto the film business cos as we startramping up pay some dues with me for a few months and you can be on this HTH movie - i think i know who i want to play kurt- he may not be as BEAUTIFUL as the other two but hes got something special and looks alot like him and has a great voice.
i know this is wierd- the agencies suck and im sick of PIGS who steal itts simple as that., so fuck it why not try my space , beats monster . no superfans please. and its very good money. btw the housekeeping part just early hours .

Yes, Courtney. If you can't rely on agencies who have defined hiring policies and require cvs and references to filter out the PIGS, you're much, much better off flinging the job offer up onto the flakiest internet community site and seeing who turns up?

Especially given your habit of posting in the past about how people you trust often turn out to rip you off, are you sure you want to go with 'bad judge of character seeks someone to rummage through drawers'?

Later, Courtney returns to the keyboard for a post headed "That's just weird" - alarming, because if something is so weird Courtney notices, how weird is this going to be?

It turns out, advertising on MySpace for staff is weird:
that i went on here MYSPACE to get an assnt! im INSANE ,,,,but hey i did look at the "sir" fr teh documentary part....that isnt something i take lightly now i need to go listen to Bonnie Prince Billie and Muse HARD cos im coasting into the homerun onthese mpotherfucking lyrics and i welcome the muse and the muse can have me for breakfast lunch and dinner i am only her avatar, come on it musey ive got a very fine fine sharp pen and Leonard Cohens given me everything hes gonna, headleass footless, i am bound to you and no other but my child and the art i have made les=ts make LIGHTNING mama.
on our broooooms yay

The Muses would like to point out that they had no part in the construction of that blog entry.

What's more amusing than the original posts, though, are the responses from people who clearly won't hear Courtney be talked down by anyone - even Courtney herself:
you were open to a new approach. even if it didn't merit great results, it's still the kind of "crazy" a creative person should have.

As yet, no annoyed response from anyone who's bought three gallons of Flash Liquid and a roll of gaffer tape, but perhaps they're sending those through the back channel.
