Last Night “Awesome,” Sean Nelson, Dan Savage, and Neal Pollack at Chop Suey
posted by February 2 at 15:29 PMon
Sean Nelson, MC’ing: “Hello, everybody, and welcome to WHO’S YOUR DADDY, a celebration of alternative fatherhood presented by The Stranger, a paper that has never made any secret of being a complete bastard. As you know, our proceedings tonight will be a parade of literature, or memoir at any rate, featuring two of the most self-involved writers the English language has ever known…”
“Awesome” singing a song written in the voice of Neal Pollack. The chorus: “Oh. My. God. I’m. So. Baked.” (Or, alternately, “Oh. My. God. I’m. So. Stoned… Oh. My. God. I’m. So. High.”)
Dan Savage reading about fingering his son’s, uh, very special place. With antibiotic ointment!
Neal Pollack reading about getting really high on something strange in Amsterdam, feeling like his body was on fire, and dumping a pitcher of water over his head in front of an audience of Dutch literary intelligentsia.
