The unsinkable Mike Edison — former High Times Publisher, Screw editor, Hustler correspondent, and professional wrestler of no small repute — is hitting the road to promote the new paperback of his outrageous memoir, I Have Fun Everywhere I Go: Savage Tales of Pot, Porn, Punk Rock, Pro Wrestling, Talking Apes, Evil Bosses, Dirty Blues, American Heroes, and the Most Notorious Magazines in the World.
This week he began his “I Have Fun in Brooklyn Tour”, a five-neighborhood odyssey that he promises will be “more fun than the circus”. He’ll be blogging his adventures here. (See below for dates.)
Is That a Bomb in Your Bra Or Are You Happy to See Me?
Andy Shernoff is so tough that he took his last vacation in Syria.
That’s not a joke. Given the choice between a week on the beach in Bermuda or wandering around the axis of evil flirting with terrorists, he boarded the first plane to Damascus, a brave move for a Jew from Queens, even if he did go to high school with Johnny Thunders.
Last night, however, he was back safely in Brooklyn, where he lives, helping me turn what could have been an uneventful gig at a book store into a wild beatnik happening. (Thanks to the minimalists at the Delta Science Institute for the clip!)
