Pimp: The Story of My Life by Iceberg SlimI bought this as an impulse purchase because it was displayed right next to the cash register at Shakespeare & Co. Id seen it in the AK Press catalog before, and that is probably what made me pick it up. Pimp is entertaining in a kind of trashy way. Its a biography about a part of life that many middle class suburban folks like me dont know anything about. I have no idea how truthful the book is, or if it is sensationalism, or maybe even utter bullshit like those confessional books written for priveleged teen fucks such as Jays Journal, or Go Ask Alice. I dont even know why in my mind these books are all linked together in someway, maybe because of the voyeuristic thrill a reader would get? I dont know. They are all cautionary, and in that way they all fail, two of them because they are obviously bullshit, and this one because after reading it Im sure all the good stuff the author got out of being a pimp outweighs the awfulness that followed. I imagine the reader who is setting out to follow in his pimping footsteps would also think he (or she I guess, today girls can be anything they want, even pimps if they want, right?) wouldnt make Mr. Slims mistakes.
The one thing that I did learn from this book, and its a lesson that will stay ingrained in my head for the rest of my life is that even the freakiest bitch dont like to be hit with a wire coat hanger thats been twisted into a metal whip. Even if the woman likes being smacked around, being beaten with the coat hanger will set her straight (straight meaning here spread her legs willingly for you, and then spread them for money which she will then give to you without cheating you of any of it). I will never forget this lesson, and Im sure one day Ill be old and senile, and people I have known for years will come visit me and Ill no idea who they are, and if I have grandchildren I wont know there names, but I will pull them close to me and tell them what to do with freaky bitches who wont do what they are told, and I hope when this day comes my family will find it cute, but they will probably just hate me and wish I was dead.
