Indeed I have, folks. And now, writing in Sensitive Skin magazine, author bart plantenga tells you how many times and why. Does it in the context of
discoursing about my latest book, Tennessee Williams in Bangkok. And follows
up the telling by interviewing yours truly. It’s a lively read that pulls no
punches. And it’s here
Btw, the moment my Bangkok book is again Amazon available (there wuz this
little blip, eh), I’ll be sending out a brief mailing informing y’all. The
good Lord willing and those damn creeks don’t rise too high, I’m figuring on
no later than the end of November. So stay tuned for that, eh.
While speaking of rising creeks ‘n such, my heart definitely goes out to
those everywhere who occasionally suffer terribly from natural disasters.
And at the moment in particular to the good people of the Philippines. Back
in the 1970s, I went around many a block there and loved it. If there’s any
way you can financially help with the relief efforts, I strongly urge you to
do so. We may each be different individual critters, but in the end we are
all one. Yeah…
Ever onward with love, EDDIE

I simply cannot resist sending this out. That’s how truly chuffed I am (as the English like to say).
bart plantenga, author of the fantabulously wild-cum-surrealistically inebriated novel Beer Mystic, is progressively penning a profile of each and every one of the 40-odd people/websites/magazines/blogs that are hosting chapters of his book. And now it’s my turn. bart’s piece on me is entitled “Eddie Don’t Do Beer.” And the lad is right. Except for the very occasional witbier or Weißbier (with a slice of lemon added!) on a hot summer’s afternoon, I am nowadays pretty much a gentleman wino.

But there’s more to tell. Beginning with the news that after 28 years Exquisite Corpse is no more.

As Superman would say: Up, up and away!
Hey, I was Superman once! (A little ‘in joke,’ for those in the know. Tee-hee.)
And so I’m here to tell you that Sensitive Skin #3 has been launched and is flying high.
I could talk and talk about how great it is. But seeing is believing and so too is hearing. Writing and photography and videos and audios and…like wow! Sensitive Skin has all that and more.
Yes, I too am there. With a short video some of you have seen, but most of you not. (And this is its best ever presentation.) Namely Yaron Ben-Nun’s film adaptation of my poem “Bananas.” Along with a brief back-story about how the poem happened, and then the film. From me going down on a black GI in Hong Kong to meeting Yaron at Xaviera Hollander’s and reciting “Bananas” for him.
But this is not only about me. This is about lots of good stuff!
