MEETINGS CONTAIN HIDEOUS CONTENT –
SERIOUSLY!

17 Hideous Men / 16 Interviews / 1 Unknown Questioner

Watch and listen as 17 different men, played by 7 actors, reveal their innermost thoughts and give confessions that might very well cause a therapist or clergy to run from their respective positions of enquiry. Join us and be part of the SUPPORT GROUP who bears witness to these HIDEOUS MEN as they try to explain, justify, con, and make sense of the world as they each see it … however tilted, narrow or askew that perspective might be.

WARNING: This show contains words and discussions that may offend certain people — use your imagination!

INTERVIEW #42
— HIDEOUS MAN ‘M8’

“Some of the stalls’ shoes touching their mate hesitantly, tentatively, as if sniffing it. The damp lisp of buttocks shifting on padded seats. The tiny pulse of each bowl’s pool. The little dottles that survive flushing.”

INTERVIEW #51
— HIDEOUS MAN ‘T19’

“I always think, “What if I can’t?” Then I always think, “Oh shit, don’t think that.” Because thinking about it can make it happen. Not like it’s happened that often.”

INTERVIEW #59
— HIDEOUS MAN ‘J22’

“I have not yet explained the great secondary power which I also possess in the masturbation fantasy, the supernatural power to halt time and magically to freeze all other of the room’s exercisers in their tracks with a covert circular motion of my hand.”

INTERVIEW #3
— HIDEOUS MAN ‘B46’

“I swear kid but you have never seen anything like this heartbreak on this girl with the tits, and I start telling her how she’s right the guy’s a shit and don’t even deserve and how it’s true most guys are shit and how my heart’s going out and all like that.”

INTERVIEW #15
— HIDEOUS MAN ‘M24’

“Well, my own father was, you might say, a man who was by natural proclivity not a good man but who nevertheless tried diligently to be a good man. Temper and so forth.”

INTERVIEW #3
— HIDEOUS MAN ‘B47’

“Heh heh. So then what happened?”

INTERVIEW #36
— HIDEOUS MAN ‘D41’

“I saw that she would forever go on playing victim to my villain. I was powerless to change her. She was not the part of the problem I could, you know, address. So I made a decision. To get help for me.”

INTERVIEW #40
— HIDEOUS MAN ‘B14’

“It’s the arm. You wouldn’t think of it as a asset like that would you. But it’s the arm. You want to see it? You won’t get disgusted? Well here it is. Here’s the arm. This is why I go by the name Johnny One-Arm. I made it up, not anybody being, like, hardhearted — me.”

INTERVIEW #31
— HIDEOUS MAN ‘B3’

“Oh like oh say going down on her yingyang for hours on hours, holding off their own coming so they can keep at it for hours, knowing the G-spot and Ecstasy Posture and such.”

INTERVIEW #19
— HIDEOUS MAN ‘B3’

“Ha. That’s possible, I suppose, from your point of view. I suppose it could be. Except think about it a minute: would that possibility have even occurred to a girl who wasn’t so darn smart? Would a dumb girl have had the sense to suspect that?”

INTERVIEW #30
— HIDEOUS MAN ‘D2’

“I have to admit it was a big reason for marrying her … because of the way she had a good body even after she’d had a kid … it probably sounds shallow, but it’s the truth.”

INTERVIEW #11
— HIDEOUS MAN ‘R7’

“Maybe if I loved you a little less or cared about you less I could take it. But I can’t. So yes, thats what the bags are, I’m leaving.”

INTERVIEW #59
— HIDEOUS MAN ‘J22’

“Years later, I began, like many adolescent boys, to masturbate, creating erotic fantasies in my imagination as I did so.”


Scott Shannon is a ‘HIDEOUS MAN

INTERVIEW #31
— HIDEOUS MAN ‘T31’

“I love women. I really do. I love them. Everything about them. I can’t even describe it.”

INTERVIEW #48
— HIDEOUS MAN ‘S17’

“The point being that this is what makes it so difficult, when for example you’re sexually interested in one, to figure out what she really wants from a male.”

INTERVIEW #19
— HIDEOUS MAN ‘X5’

“And plus now also she knows more about the human condition and suffering and terror and degradation. I mean, all of us will admit suffering and horror are part of being alive and existing, or at least we all pay lip service to knowing it, the human condition. But now she really knows it.”


Matthew Spinney is a ‘HIDEOUS MAN

INTERVIEW #14
– HIDEOUS MAN ‘T7’

“I’ll be doing it with some girl, it doesn’t matter who. It’s when I start to come. That it happens. I’m not a Democrat. I don’t even vote.”

INTERVIEW #28
– HIDEOUS MAN ‘S18’

“You can go nuts trying to figure out what tack to take. She might go for it, she might not. Today’s woman’s a total crap-shoot. It’s like trying to figure out a Zen koan. Where what they want’s concerned, you pretty much have to just shut your eyes and leap.”

INTERVIEW #2
– HIDEOUS MAN ‘R29’

“All right. That’s the bad part. Dozens of times. At least. Forty, forty-five times, maybe. To be honest, possibly more. As in a lot more, I’m afraid. I guess I’m not even sure anymore.”
