“You know, we live in an ironic age,” he says. “To hear Garry go up there in this quite probably cheesy ceremony from another time – you know, campy, kitschy, in a crappy part of Hollywood – it could be just awful. If you pull back a certain way, you want to just run. Listening there, I don’t know what Garry is going to say, and I hear him try to say heartfelt, loving things as a friend, and I’m like, ‘Yeah, he’s really trying to communicate, and that’s beautiful and ballsy.’ Because people are out of that habit. It’s so hostile the way we communicate socially now, and so ironic and so meta and distant and multilayered. To hear a guy go out there and say, ‘I love Dave.’ I felt exposed.”
Before I found your blog I was conflicted in liking Billy. Sure he's an ass but with the stress of the abuse he is mostly forgiven though some of the things he did aren't forgiven. As a fellow abuse victim I get it being a dick is how he vents and possibly how he keeps people away so they don't see him as a victim. I just want to say thanks I'm glad I found your blog.
