i think as a group we should buy a shitload of amazing comedy dvd's (mr. show, arrested development, let america lauigh, ben stiller, etc.) and donate them to the austin public library so that future comedy nerds in texas have access to this stuff with out having to buy the stuff right away,

i'd like to think julie would have loved to have stumbled upon that stuff at the library when she was 14, and i think she would want more people to laugh and enjoy what was so dear to her.

What makes you guys think Julie would use a library for anything other than free internet?

That just reminded me of getting a Brooklyn Public Library card so I could email my teacher and Julie ended up using about 23 of my 30 minutes checking her emails, myspace, here, etc.

I remember when we were going out for the third show at Invite Them Up and Julie was wearing these real ugly shoes and I asked Chris about them and he said "yeah i told her, but she thinks they look good"... oh man they were so ugly.

I don't know why I remembered that, but it was so funny because she looked good and then you'd glance down at her shoes and they were horrific. It was like "you never knew this girl was from Texas, if it wasn't for her ugly shoes"...

I love how these little things keep popping into my head.

I've thought before about burning Bill Hicks cds or Mr. Show dvds and just mailing them to random people or leaving them in public places.

Anyway, I like your idea.

Unhappy former lurker, first-time poster...

Although I've never posted, felt it was necessary to express my sympathy...I loved reading Julie's posts!! She was hysterically witty and sarcastic as hell!! She sounded like a wonderfully giving person...one who would put her family first, above all else, even to sacrifice her own happiness...that is rare in this day and age...she will truly be missed, and my deepest sympathy goes out to her friends, family and anyone who was lucky enough to know her...

that's awesome, thanks so much jersey girl. Julie loved her fans. But she hated the movie Jersey Girl, so I guess we're back to square one.

I kid. She hated her fans.

Keep 'em coming Gleep Glop!

Well, it's official... I've purchased my tickets to the show.

I think we should have "Giggle Brother" t-shirts made.

Julie's friend, Christina, contacted me. She said she had some funny things Julie wrote, and I asked her for them. I told her we were all bouncing back and forth stories about her that made us laugh, and that more "Julie Writings" would put a smile on our faces. Here is something she sent me:
Quote:
"Cristina, I have a horribly sad story to share. Yesterday in Geometry I was thinking 'Man, I need to get this sheet copied. Which one of my friend's parents owns a Mailboxes Etc type place?' And I was getting mad 'cause I couldn't remember which of my friend's parents owned such a place. Then I remembered 'Oh-she's got red hair! Ah, what's her name?' So I was gettin real mad at this point. For, like, an hour I tried to remember, then it hit me. I don't have a friend with red hair whose parents own a copy-fax-machine place. I know a girl named Angela Chase whose parents own a copy-fax maching place...Yes, from MY SO-CALLED LIFE!!!! That shows how badly my life revolves around television. Isn't that sad?? Aaaah, I got, Uncle Jess is picking DJ and I up to go get some Elvis peanut butter."

I'm just so very sorry for all of you who knew Julie. It sounds like she was an amazing person. It was always such a treat to hear her stories and chuckle in agreement with her opinions and ideals. She will be sorely missed. For as many of us that are strangers I surprised myself with uncontrollable tears when I came upon this thread. I thought you all should know how much I look forward to checking in on all of you and commiserating over daily bullshit when I can.
Please be safe. I've discovered today, I care about you all.

I lost one of my best friends 2 weeks ago. The experience itself drove me to this site seeking others for the sake of humor. Now I'm broken. It's hard to tell you how much you guys mean to me without sounding like a fuckin' psycho. But now -- Julie -- My mind is totally blown.

There's a place nearby -- it's called "TreePeople" it's in Los Angeles --- they plant trees and dedicate them to people we've lost -- It would be my sincere pleasure to dedicate a beautiful Oak tree planting to Julie. Please let me know if you're interested in joining the planting.

Much love to all. Those in the Los Angeles area interested in joining me for the planting, contact me.

Thoughts and prayers to Julie's family today. I only knew Julie from her postings, but like many here I've found myself very sad these last few days. I always enjoyed her posts, and I looked forward to what she had to say, because it was always smart, funny and original. I found a PM from her in my inbox where she gave me info to help me out on a project, and surely many others have similar notes from her. She was an instigator, a booster, and the kind of person who energizes the people around her. She will be missed by people in different countries and walks of life across the world. We've all been a little quieter this week.

Like a lot of people on this board I don’t post much but I do read the threads every day I’m at work. I never had any personal interaction with Julie but feel that I’ve gotten to know her a little through her posts. I was working when I found out and had to hold back tears. I knew that no one at work would understand why I was so upset.

It only became harder as I continued to read everyone’s posts. I've always thought that this was a very unique message board. After reading how sincerely devastated the entire board was over this loss, I realized just how amazing you are as a group. This board prides itself on being cynical mean fucks (which I love), that it broke my heart to read such sad and sincere posts from all of you.

I am going to make an effort to post more and get to know more of the people on this board. You are all so much more real than the most of the people I actually see on a regular basis.

My heart goes out to Julie’s family.
