Pepitone is a master of aggressive tweeting and self-defense and can spot a gang member at 20 paces (the suits, ties, and smiles are the giveaway). The Norma Rae of porn unions and a mourner of the ascot, Pepitone says bluntly, “It’s all about pain here tonight. It all hurts, and it hurts a lot.” See, being an incarnation of the Buddha isn’t all smiles and sunshine: it’s truth. The truth of pain, the choice of suffering. And if you want to stave off suffering, one glorious CD and/or silky-smooth limited edition vinyl album full of directness, short-lived cause commitment (he, too, can be an ardent vegan for 20 minutes if he gets too bored on Netflix), and great Tweets from history might just be the thing.
