He loved making the pictures of the smart little blonde girl with big brown eyes.
They did Zero Zero in He loved the way they lived, starting with the style of their apartment on Broome Street—it was like a reflection of her intricate brain, stuffed with all her books and knickknacks. She was a pack rat. He loved that they knew interesting people, had them over all the time—artists, musicians, writers, producers—constantly drank, smoked, laughed, and never turned on the television. She started promoting him.
As with everything else she did, she was fervent about it, making friends with gallerists in the New York art world Andrea Rosen, Bronwyn Keenan. Suddenly his work was showing everywhere. He was getting known himself. Her confidence was contagious. She made him feel free, and that made him feel loyal.
No one knew for sure; all anyone could say with certainty was that Jeremy and Theresa loved each other. It was The History of Glamour —the witty, minute-long animated film Duncan made while at Nicholson—that got her noticed by Hollywood. Glamour was co-illustrated by Jeremy Blake.

Her movie is full of wry humor and silliness, and is a cautionary tale about the emptiness of fame and the corrupting influence of ambition. Ironically, the attention it received only made Duncan more ambitious. But in Hollywood, no one gets to be Warhol, not even Warhol. She wanted to make a more expensive and complicated film than the studio had envisioned, but she also had, she said, a real rock star attached.

The last time I heard from them was Meanwhile, Duncan was e-mailing people photographs of herself and Blake relaxing on a Malibu beach with Beck and his wife, Marissa Ribisi twin sister of actor Giovanni Ribisi , who was pregnant at the time, dating the photograph to Marissa gave birth to their first child, Cosimo, that year.
Duncan told people that their friendship ended abruptly when Beck called her up out of the blue, she said, politely bowing out of her film without explanation. Duncan seemed personally wounded—frustrated, too, at another setback in her efforts to get a movie made. She blamed the Church of Scientology. According to Duncan, sometime in their two-year acquaintance, Beck expressed to her and Blake a desire to leave the church, and they had offered him encouragement and even assistance. He told me he wanted to leave the cult desperately, and this is what they do when someone knows that.
Scientology claims 10 million members worldwide. A representative for Beck said he did not know whether Beck was a donor. District Court in New York after the piece was published. Ten years later, in January of , after a lengthy legal battle, the U. Court of Appeals in New York upheld an earlier ruling saying that the defendants had an absence of malice in publishing the article, because Behar had conducted a standard investigation before writing his article.
People attack auditors, or staff, or organisations, or me.
I never forget until the slate is clear. None of what Blake and Duncan said can be proven, and perhaps none of it is true, but sometime in they began to believe they were being harassed. There was a real fear there. It started, they said, with repeated phone calls late at night. She began taking pictures of out-of-state license plates. It became an obsession. It would be too bad if something happened to it. I still believe her. She was never paranoid before this. It started to seem to her that no one could be trusted, that everyone was suspect.
How did these people watching them know so much about them? She came to believe that someone was informing on them. Then, in , the couple accused her of being the person behind an inflammatory e-mail about them that had been sent around to people they knew. Nichols denies being the sender. We stopped communicating with them about a year or so ago. Blake wrote a page document encapsulating their claims, which he planned on using as the basis for a lawsuit against the Church of Scientology. In it, Tom Cruise was blamed for undermining the project at Paramount, something Cruise has denied.
Duncan wrote screeds on her blog which she launched in about people she claimed were connected to C. Gaskell and Aslan have both denied her allegations. Which she did.
The Winchester Mystery House, now a tourist attraction in San Jose, California, built over 38 years, has rooms, 40 staircases, doors, and 10, windows. The cosmic pileup was in overdrive when, in mid-January of , Blake and Duncan moved into the St. Morales, 58, is a longtime East Village activist, generally credited as being the leader of the New York squatter movement of the 80s and 90s.
She never mentioned why they left their last residence, and the vestry apparently never checked up on their past. Blake and Duncan later borrowed money for their security deposit from family members.

Blake installed himself in a consulting job at Rockstar Games, the outfit behind Grand Theft Auto, where he had worked nearly 10 years before.

She bought things, a shiny, silver metal cuckoo clock. She seemed cheerful, always running home with flowers. She drank champagne by the bottle—all there ever was in their refrigerator.
