For those of you who've been to Starwood, neither it
nor Paul Krassner needs any further introduction - enjoy his take on it.
For those of you who've heard me talk about it, here's a little
insight into the Starwood Festival from one of its treasured speakers, Paul Krassner. (I sat next to Paul at the "Shamans and Drugs" workshop he mentions, and briefy talked to him afterwards about this article.)
Life Among the Neo-Pagans
As a stand-up commentator, I rarely work the comedy-club circuit,
preferring to appear at more offbeat venues. Several years ago, I
performed at the Starwood Festival ("a Magickal, psychedelic & multi-cultural event") in Sherman, New York--Amish country on the border near Ohio and Pennsylvania--on private campgrounds, where clothing was optional. Many women were bare-breasted, and several men and women were fully naked, a practice known as "going skyclad."
