Welcome fascinating cultural icon Paul Krassner to the Community Interview!

Victoria Victoria
Welcome Paul Krassner - satirist, author, columnist, comedian, founder of The Realist magazine, co-founder of the Yippies with Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin, editor of Lenny Bruce's biography, one-time editor of Hustler, and publisher of the legendary Disneyland Memorial Orgy (featuring the Disney characters engaging in a bacchanalian sex spree after Walt died and they were free of their master, which you can buy a print of on his website) - to the Eden Community Interview!

Paul has authored several books; his most recent collections are Who's to Say What's Obscene: Politics, Culture and Comedy in America Today, with a foreword by Arianna Huffington; In Praise of Indecency: Dispatches From the Valley of Porn; and One Hand Jerking: Reports From an Investigative Satirist, with a foreword by Harry Shearer and an introduction by Lewis Black. Paul recently discussed some of these in his Naked Reader author profile over on SexIs Magazine. Paul continues to write and has no plans to sit back idly watching. He currently blogs for the Huffington Post and writes columns for High Times and Adult Video News.

So go ahead and ask –the questions are endless! Everything from: comedy and satire, political protest, conspiracy, counterculture icons, alternative media, sexuality, pornography, psychedelic revolution, writing, censorship, religion, absurdity, to the war on some people who use some drugs – it’s on the table, he’s got stories to tell and opinions to share! I am personally super excited to have a living legend on interview! What an awesome opportunity.

Ask as many questions as you’d like; you can even post about and link to the interview from your blog if you want to. Feel free to share your thoughts!

And there are prizes!

Paul will be giving away prizes for his favorite 3 questions! We’ll be announcing the winners in this thread next week on Thursday, June 17th.

The prizes are….

1st Prize: A copy of Paul’s book, In Praise of Indecency: The Leading Investigative Satirist Sounds off on Hypocrisy, Censorship and Free Expression, a copy of Best Sex Writing 2010 (which features Paul’s writing), and a $50 Eden gift card!

2nd Prize: A copy of In Praise of Indecency: The Leading Investigative Satirist Sounds off on Hypocrisy, Censorship and Free Expression, A copy of Best Sex Writing 2010, and a $25 Eden gift card!

3rd Prize: A copy of In Praise of Indecency: The Leading Investigative Satirist Sounds off on Hypocrisy, Censorship and Free Expression and a copy of Best Sex Writing 2010!

The interview is open for questions for a full from today (June 9th) – Tuesday, June 15th.

Everyone, please join us in a warm welcome to Paul Krassner!

I know! It's rather striking, isn't it? I kind of want to buy one, frame it, and hang it up in my apartment. I don't think my family would appreciate it if they ever visited though. Haha! I already have enough things I have to hide whenever they stop by for a visit.

1st prize: Splendwhore: "I loved George Carlin..."

2nd prize: VieuxCarre: "Have you accomplished more than you set out to..."

3rd prize: Carrie Ann: "I noticed you're writing an article..."

Congrats, ladies! Good questions!
