“Haven’t you had enough milk, Christine?”
Christine Rosamond is caught in the act of going for some more milk. This world famous artist – to be – took after her narcissistic parents, who could never own enough narcissistic material. Mark and I admired her Daring Greed, because we could never pull it off, without being severely punished.
At the time of this photo I caught Christine being Very Greedy. The milk man would come and stop in front of our house and give me all the unsold little cartons of chocolate milk to give the other kids on the block. After receiving about ten of them, I put them in the freezer to turn them into ice cream. and went looking for my friends. When we came running for our share, there was Christine sitting a red wagon, being pulled around the block – once again – by a little girl that was crying. Between Christine legs were the empty cantons of chocolate milk. The little girl cries;
“She promised me a chocolate milk if I pulled her around the block, but, she drank them all!”
My crazy-ass sister began her autobiography with the fight we had over the last of the milk. The question I put forth is this;
Havent you had enough milk Stacey Pierrot? How about you, Julie Lynch?
Here’s another one. Why should any member of my family haul your parasitical ass around the block – one more time! Get out! Get off my friggen case!
Current Showtime Movie Channel Schedule
GETTING OFF is a gut-wrenching confessional that mixes sex and emotional violence with insight and redemption.
It’s 1992. Josie (Christine Harnos), a 28 year old downtown artist is tormented by a traumatic event that happened during a drunken blackout in college. Unable to face the painful experience, she’s spent the past decade locked into a compulsive cycle of excessive drinking and sleeping with abusive men.
When one of Josie’s best friends from college is diagnosed with AIDS, Josie and two girlfriends from her college days, a stand-up comedian (Brooke Smith) and an MBA student (Amy Ryan), decide to take an AIDS test. Using the excruciating wait for their results as a backdrop, writer/director Julie Lynch paints a canvas of raw emotion as the three women begin to examine their pasts. As Josie opens up, consciously exploring each sexual encounter she can remember, her subconscious reveals the truth she’s never before had the courage to confront.
In the end, GETTING OFF exposes the truth about all three women’s relationships to sex, to men, and to each other.
