Kissassertainment Tonight

Your jaw will hang open, barely attached by its thin wire of muscle and vein, when you listen to Eugene S. Robinson spitting out words like that Pavlovian pit bull Spalding Gray as he recounts his many impassioned interviews with hardened cons, CIA operatives, and cage fighters. A competitive fighter himself, Robinson’s also the vocalist for art-rock band Oxbow and an award-winning journalist, and his eloquent monologue re-creates the "kickassertainment" featured in his invective-filled coffee-table book Fight: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Ass-Kicking But Were Afraid You'd Get Your Ass Kicked For Asking.
