"Porno Buddhist" to speak, screen documentary

Zero Defex bassist and Suicide Girls columnist Brad Warner will read from his latest lively Zen Buddism book, Sit Down and Shut Up, at Visible Voice Books (1023 Kenilworth Ave., Tremont) tomorrow at 7 p.m. After the talk, he’ll screen his Cle-punk documentary, Cleveland’s Screaming. The event is free. Warner's tenure as a writer for alt-porno/social networking website Suicide Girls has earned him the misleading nickname "The Porno Buddhist," which he has since embraced. Warner recently launched The Porno Buddhist website, in which he applies Zen as therapy for survivors of sexual abuse. -- D.X. Ferris
