I somehow sold a story to the Onion A.V. Club

See the picture in the lower right hand corner? That's my story!

Quick update: I managed to sell a story to my favorite entertainment website, The A.V. Club, aka the pop-culture-reviewing spinoff of the satirical newspaper The Onion. It's a goofy little item about child actor Mason Reese. While I realize this is a modest accomplishment indeed, I'm completely psyched about being in the AVC, a site which has been a heavy influence on this blog. Here's a link to the article. I hope you will enjoy it. This was so much fun to write, and I hope I get the chance to write more for them in the future.


  1. Somehow I failed to catch your byline yesterday, but I didn't miss it on today's article about the IMFDb. And, again, I'm sorry about the "Hey Joe" joke. I'm sure you've heard enough variations on that to last a lifetime.

    1. I've come to sort of dread that song over the course of a lifetime... which is odd because it's the type of record I'd normally love. Thanks for commenting.

    2. You're quite welcome. Now we just need to see if they're interested in running a "Craig and Joe Watch Movies You've Actually Heard Of"-type column.

    3. Thinking of doing some recycling perhaps? Those articles never really did get the eyeballs they deserved.

    4. I've actually had cause to link to a couple of them several times in recent months. Heck, when you do a Google search for my name, our Top Secret! article shows up right there on the first page of results.

    5. No shame in that. Better a movie review than an arrest record, right?

    6. Indeed. And it proves that people are reading our work.
