2011: The Year of the Movie Nerd
So after a freak set of events that started two years ago with this humble blog and eventually led up to a sweet, sweet gig working at GetGlue.com, the big update around these parts is that, as of yesterday, the awesome folks over at The Huffington Post offered me a full-time position as an Associate Editor at Moviefone. After mulling over the notion of getting paid to write about movies and go to premieres for all of zero seconds, I played it cool, humbly accepted, then went home and danced around like Kevin Bacon in the lobby of my apartment building. Not trying to get on a soap box or anything, it’s just effing crazy on the one hand, and I couldn’t have done it without all you loyal readers on the other. Seriously, if it weren’t for every last one of you who’s stopped by here and told me I was nuts for hating Kick-Ass, strangely impressed/understandably sad for the way I sat through Battlefield Earth, Troll 2 and Gigli all on my own free will, or just dropped in to say “I love you,” I would have put the lid on this thing a long time ago. So thanks to infinity and I swear I’ll get back to all your comments one of these days.
And as for the future of Cut The Crap, pretty sure I’ll be keeping up this snail’s pace of writing reviews when I can. It ain’t ideal, but since I can’t let my baby go the way of Pets.com, it’ll have to do. But hey, a new door has been opened and who knows what could happen if I play my cards right. So on that note, you guys rock and here goes nothin’.
Oh, and I can’t stop listening to this song. Give it a listen, it makes me happy.
