that's almost as good as that scene in Gremlins where Phoebe Cates' character talks about her dad dying after getting trapped in the chimmney trying to be Santa Clause.
It's the most wonderful time of the year!
"Gay Son (Me)" is my unauthorized biography of Christopher Frizzelle. Due in bookstores any minute.
Shit, Chris. You can come out for Chinese food next Christmas...
Interesting story. I can't wait for Sean Nelson's biography.
Where did you grow up?
Gee, and I thought my getting disowned by my parents for being gay at Christmas time was bad. But then Mom was not welding a knife around.
Wonderful story. It might make me feel better if I wasn't so depressed by my own family already.
Hey, when will we, at last, create a movement to declare christmas nonexistant? when? Every year it gets worse and I don't know anyone who doesn't fight with their family these days. Show me anyone older than 12 that's happy on Christmas and I might just believe in it again...
that is a heartbreaking story. i'm so sorry.
Therapy. The perfect Christmas gift. Get some.
Wow - that was great. But the funny thing is that after my Christmas (and childhood of Christmases) I am sort of jealous of you. My family is so passive aggressive that a knife fight would have been a positive step towards expressing our feelings.
God damn, Elliott Smith -- save that crap for your therapist.
Great story, Chris. Let me tell you about Thanksgiving 1984 sometime.
