Chaim Witz, Ubermensch

Thank God there is something worthwhile to come out of this Gene Simmons Sex Tape situation — namely this mindblowing Gene Simmons NPR Interview, in which the Tongued One destroys Socrates’ doctrine of degenerative types through a virtuoso fusion of the oligarchic, democratic, and tyrannical souls that leaves the heart of “Fresh Air” host Terry Gross thoroughly battered by the three-personed performance:

Terry Gross: I would like to think that the personality you’ve presented on our show today is a persona that you’ve affected as a member of KISS, something you do on stage, before the microphone, but that you’re not nearly as obnoxious in the privacy of your own home or when you’re having dinner with friends.

Gene Simmons: Fair enough. And I’d like to think that the boring lady who’s talking to me now is a lot sexier and more interesting than the one who’s doing NPR. You know, studious and reserved, and — I bet you’re a lot of fun at a party.
