Fairuza Balk – a tribute?

It seems a band called “The Lawnmowers” have written and recorded a song about our dear Fairuza. Quite logically titled “Fairuza Balk”, it involves the singer wanting to talk with her, and also wanting Ru to “take off her skin and send it to me” (huh?)

For those who want to hear it, go to the website and navigate your way to the music section, and thereafter clicking the song. The site requires Flash (get it here).

Interview: Don’t Knock The Balk

A Fairuza Balk Fansite – 4.0

I don’t think any of you have missed that the world of Fairuza Balk has been revolving rather slow lately. I haven’t heard a single peep about what she might be up to nowadays.
