About the Author

To the chagrin of friends, family and his limited pool ofromantic interests, Wil Forbis launched Acid Logic (www.acidlogic.com), ahumor/pop/culture web site, during the Internet boom of the late 1990s. Whilemanaging to be ignored by the hoards of venture capitalists intent on fundingany entity with a "dot com" in its name, Acid Logic has become theweb site of note for obnoxious banter, pithy commentary and pee pee jokes.Forbis lives in Los Angeles.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Wil Forbis lets his iconoclast flag fly with Acid Logic, a funny and near-funny collection of hilarious funny rants about all sorts of things, some really great interviews (the Great Kat interview, despite all your inclinations otherwise, is not fake), and Wil's bizarre upside-down-world fiction. He is very much like Will Self in his fictitious view of how the world might be if things were the opposite of what they are, which makes him a true iconoclast in that sense. This is a great book for the bathroom because the pieces are broken up into easily pinched off sections that take about as long to read as it does to see a man about a dog. Forbis may not be for everyone, but nothing good ever is. He's a truly original talent and Acid Logic is a great cross-section of an intellectually curious mind.

While this book may be the author's first print title, he is no stranger to writing. Wil's blog, My So-called [...], has archives going back to September 2000. Anyone on the fence about buying the book should feel free to peruse his blog: [...]

Now, onto the contents! There are 5 sections to the book (not counting the Foreward by John Saleeby and Preface by the author):
1. Miscellaneous Writing
__ a. Three's a Crowd!
__ b. Interview with King Kong
__ c. Dean Koontz can BLOW ME!!!
__ d. Don't Tell Us, We'll Tell You!
__ e. Nothing but a G-rated Thang
__ f. Clinton's Punishment--Examining Alternate Proposals
__ g. Americana Splendor
__ h. Cabin Fever and the Next Wave of Kentucky Fried Horror!
__ i. The Rebirth of Jason Becker
__ j. Let's Hear It For THog-Zar
2. Interesting Motherf*ckers (Reviewer's note: Amazon doesn't allow for profanity in reviews, however the book does)
__ a. Roz Chast
__ b. David Allan Coe
__ c. Doris Wishman
__ d. Sho Kosugi
__ e. Penelope Spheeris
__ f. Saddam Hussein
__ g. Antonio Fargas
__ h. Toshiro Mifune
__ i. Nina Hagen
__ j. Steve Ditko
__ k. Thelonius Monk
__ l. Joan and John Cusack
__ m. GG Allin
3. Reviews
__ a. Revenge of the Nerds
__ b. Sid and Nancy
__ c. Dead Presidents
__ d. Office Space
__ e. Bargain Bin Culture
__ f. Mr. Bungle--self-titled
4. Interviews
__ a. Rikki Rockett
__ b. The Great Kat
__ c. Stuart Gordon
__ d. Curtis Armstrong
__ e. Gerald V Casale of Devo
5. Fiction
__ a. The Parish Hill Slasher/Pruner
__ b. The Suckiest Superhero In The World

Of these, my favorite is definitely the last section, Fiction.
