Read a story in Variety about these aspiring film critics and how they are coping in this crummy economy where writers are doing all they can to make it. A lot of them are working for free!!!

But it's hard to get into entertainment writing when so many of these publications and TV channels are enduring bloodbaths.
Oh, and my Film School Rejects box office column is up. Too bad this column doesn't pay the bills -- instead, I rely on my mainstream media job. Which, by the way, has been a big help as far as meeting girls is concerned.
"Hi! I report on city council meetings!" Yeah, that really works.
