Andy Behrman

He is incredibly narcissistic. I envy his playboy type lifestyle. Behrman was convicted of fraud and aandy to five months jail and five months house arrest. This article has multiple issues.

In the end, Behrman’s aandy didn’t justify itself–at least as far as my expectations. I was amazed that Behrman was as functional as he was. Behrman speaks openly about bipolar disorder, substance abuse, hypersexuality, the Electroboy movie, stigma and of course, his dream of being the first ‘omni-sexual male’ on Mars.

He seems too slick and charming to be doing what he does. Everything moves in slow motion. But I also don’t think that’s the point. Will I ever sleep again?

Still I’m glad I read it. I spend hours in the tub. Indiana guy shakes my hand and tells me that the clothes will be delivered by the end of the week. From my balcony, I see a man walking his cocker spaniel.

It’s an emotional state brhrman to Oz, full of excitement, colour, noise and speed – an overload of sensory stimulation – whereas the sane state of Kansas is plain and simple, black and white, boring and flat. I hope he comes out with another book in a few years that’s a memoir of Andy Behrman, not just mania.


Other days, anyd simple high from a shoplifting excursion for a toothbrush or a bottle of Tylenol is enough.

His morality is dubious and extremely fluid. Is there anything that you have done while manic that you wish you could take back? For most of his adult life, he had periods of tremendous highs and terrible lows. That’s a genetic thing.

There’s a flight to Tokyo stopping in Los Elevtro, so I buy a ticket with cash: Mar 07, Oriana rated it it was ok Shelves: But If I had written about winning a battle with cancer, I never would have been criticized for writing the gory details of battling with cancer.
