Phoenix - oh snickerdoodle, Chuck is writing about me.....

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Unfortunately, Chuck will never get to hear this... but he just wrote about me. My name, now, is Reggie Phoenix. My soon-to-be-ex-wife Jennifer and I both changed our last name to Phoenix many years ago. She and I ARE that couple in the story. We don't have a blind daughter, our house didn't burn down. But those "characters" are us. To a T. We're about to get divorced now, and even reading that story...called Phoenix... I get fucking chills thinking about it. I still can't tell if I'm the fucked up one, or she is, or what to do about the fact that basically we're both stupid. Chuck... I want you to KNOW how heavily this piece hit me. I am a huge fan. Have been for years. I actually got to ask a question of you when you were in Minneapolis last year. I am almost in tears typing this.

Thank you Chuck Palahniuk. Thank you.
