Turning my fuckups into writeups has become my favorite accidental high, and the Huffington Post is the latest venue to deal me a fix. That site’s Seema Kalia just interviewed me for her regular column, “My Favorite Mistake,” in which various notables and eccentrics reveal the big boo-boo that threatened to destroy their lives, but which they somehow emerged from all chastened and wiser. Mine was a career messup way back in the ’80s, when a chance for me to become even more rich and famous was sabotaged by a horribly conficted little person named Michael Musto. I ended up being mad at him, mad at them, mad at the world, and mad at the dirt, but fortunately a few decades later, I’ve managed to get some press out of the whole thing. Don’t make the mistake of not clicking on the interview.
