Honestly, here's what I think happened: someone (not Franco) bought a cheap camera (to achieve that "faux vintage" feel), and proceeded to stop by each and every household featured on the TLC "Hoarders" show. This rogue artist then photographed the junk piles and picked the lousiest shots -- haphazard clusters of children's toys, dirty bed sheets, and paint-stained school chairs -- and uploaded them to Adobe Illustrator. Then someone -- still not James Franco -- went all crazy marking them up with random words and phrases like "Gucci" or "Eff You." Finally, James Franco attended a gallery opening somewhere and got his name attached to the "project" (is this a "project?") and donated pictures of his penis nose and... well, then this book -- I'm sorry, I mean "boomerang" -- came about. Oh... and something about William Faulkner in Paris. Yeah...
