You know what always goes great after a round of Bible Girl, even when it's guest-written? Porn.
A few weeks back we mentioned that our old pal Josh Alan Friedman has penned the autobiography (sorta, kinda) of Screw founder Al Goldstein, titled I, Goldstein: My Screwed Life. Well, next week clear the schedule if you wanna hang out with the self-proclaimed "fat, disgusting buffoon" without whom Larry Flynt would probaby be, oh, fine, Larry Flynt. He'll be here November 1 and 2 for various events around town, because Dallas is nothing if not a hospitable environment for porn pioneers: On Wednesday there will be a private shindig for the guy at The Lodge, followed on Thursday by a public gathering. He'll be on the main stage. Not kidding.
But before that little miracle takes place, from 6 to 8 p.m. on November 2, Goldstein will be the guest of honor at, appropriately enough, Art Prostitute in Deep Ellum. At 6 you can drink and mingle with Goldstein, who not so long ago was homeless and sleeping on the floor of the Second Ave. Deli in NYC, then at 6:45 Josh and Goldstein will host a little chit-chat, then they'll take questions after that.
Oh, and mazel tov in advance to Messers Freidman and Goldstein: Word is the book's due for a review in The New York Times in the next few days, since Al is nothing if not a Manhattan landmark, like the Empire State Building but bigger, so he says.
