Re: (TV) Please Kill Me. No, not me. The Book.
Admittedly, I did find some of the anecdotes amusing--Sid thinking
that a "vacuum cleaner" was some kind of drug delivery system, Ron
Ashton hanging out with Larry from the Three Stooges (more
heartwarming, I guess, than amusing). I liked the Quine interviews,
I liked being able to hear people who were actually there talk about
their own experiences in their own words. As RL sez in the interview
on Bibi's site, however, it looks like Legs edited for maximum dirt
content, and it does seem that people were taking the opportunity to
grind their personal axes, so the people who couldn't or wouldn't
talk come out with the short end of the stick.
It's also responsible for me going out and getting the _Punk_
magazine collection. The Lou Reed story alone is worth it--a
phenomenally brilliant cartoon.
I will say that I read _PKM_ from start to finish without stopping,
so it definitely was an engaging read for a mind brought up on Creem
Magazine, even if from time to time I got that weird feeling from
time to time that I was sitting in on some character assassination
