Hell, to each their own.

An ex of mine met him once. She was drunk and he was with his wife and the only thing she could think of to say is "Is this your woman?" She was mortified later.

Did you don't know Spaulding Grey. Here's a bit he did for talking heads "True Stories".

Wonderful monologues and pornography, what's not to like about Spalding Grey? God rest his soul.

The headline should either begin with "If you're considering," or use a question mark in place of that ugly comma splice. Otherwise, it looks like a sentence written by a spammer selling counterfeit Viagra out of India.

CSB, but not really mine...

I saw Spalding Gray perform a monologue at Stanford U. many years ago.  Can't remember much (yeah, tell me what YOU remember from "Swimming to Cambodia" other than it was interesting), but one story stood out.

He was taking magic mushrooms for the first time, and his host, the only other participant, told him that if he had to pee, he should urinate in a pint glass and drink it so as not to lose all those important drug stuff his body was wasting.

Eventually, he had to go, so he did as instructed, and peed in the glass.  His host, at some point, also peed in his own glass.  Spalding went on to describe his hesitance, and eventual determination to drink the foul beverage because he was high and it was his first time doing mushrooms, and if that's what people did, he was going to act like a veteran.  He described the experience in less than desirable terms.

Eventually, he got around to the punchline, which was his grinning host, also very high, stating, "You notice I didn't drink mine."

In that eternal maxim of never hesitate, he actually did a show once in Colorado Springs when I lived there, and I didn't go. "Next time," I said. He jumped a month later.

Spalding Gray, the humorist, was an amazing storyteller. I HIGHLY recommend his monologues.
