playing dirty?

i can't decide whether to laugh at this, or be pissed. on second thought i think i'll laugh it off, since i have enough these days to be pissed about.

Heh. I seem to remember someone once telling me something about the greatest praise one can ever receive from another is their vehement slagging. No rag is gonna be perfection in itself or perfectly please everyone all the time. But if readers didn't care to read the content - then they wouldn't. There's a following for any flavor of spin - Utahns know that better than most. I hope anyway!

I would like to point out that your dating bullshit is amusing, and apparently famous enough that Frost threw it into his list. What I thought was the best part was that it was simply referred to as "dating bullshit" Dating is always bullshit. And furthermore, he works for a publication that people mostly pick up because a) they are bored and want to read the "I saw you" section and laugh at it, or b) are bored and want it to provide them with information about how to immediately find entertainment or amusement in the area.

I wait for IN each week and go straight for the hot blonde with the dating bullshit and then hit the shopping and dining sections on my way out. I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Oh and one more thing you have up on Mr. Frost while we're playing dirty: You're not in a shitty rock band.

City weekly sucks!

Dave said...

i have to admit, i did laugh out loud at "this Cleveland Steamer of an "alternative weekly"".

You seem like a woman with a thick skin. That's all you need to deal with stuff like this.

h.justin said...

Laugh. Definitely.

Bob said...

I've expressed my opinion before about how much I dislike the little paper you write for. Your column is usually the best thing in there.

However, you've got to admit that last week was the worst edition yet.

Oh, and I found where the strange smell was coming from in their office. One only had to read the article on Cup O Noodles to figure it out.

Sorry Sarah, I have to go with Bob on this. Your column is the best thing the mag has going. Why don't they have you write more than the column? You're an excellent writer and obviously have a following. If your editor was on top of things he'd scoop you up full-time. (Since you're looking anyway.)

Playing all sides said...

There's been some funny articles but for the most part your the best read there.

CW I read most articles. Maybe you should move over there?

Jayson said...

Yes they are playing dirty. I've been reading IN since you went to write for them. I've never seen anything where you trash them.

Looks like they don't like competition in town.

I don't agree with Bob, I like your paper. I find it entertaining and not politic heavy. But I'd sure like to read more of you as well.

Laugh it off. They're obviously having problems coming up with their own entertaining blog.

Speaking of which, why doesn't IN have a blog? There's your blog and Dan's but why not start an IN blog. I'd read it, and I suspect all your readers would. If you wrote on it they surely would. Have you noticed your fan base? Wowzers!

I'll admit that I pick up both CW and IN. CW for the personals (always good for a laugh when read with appropriate voices) and IN for your column. The problem with both is that they're not glossy. If they were, well, that's a different story...

Someone said...

I am not going to trash IN, but I am going to say your column is the highlight of each and every issue.

It's why I pick it up.

The consensus is for you to write more for them. I heavily agree. In fact maybe I'll shoot an email to your editor making that suggestion. Maybe the rest of you commenters can do the same?

Why would they write that unless they are worried? It's about time another weekly came to town.

Who is "Bill Frost"? Is that a pseudonym for one of Lavar Christensen's 23 kids?

Part of the Plan said...

Oops, what I meant to say was:

"Bill Frost doesn't know Jack".

Hope that makes better sense.

That One Guy said...

I guess that's part of the reason I've always called it The Shitty Weekly...

"Cleveland Steamer..." I almost spewed coffee between guffaws..
