We are Simone, Channon, Michelle, John and Monika. We all met sitting near each other in gray and blue cubicles and working in mass entertainment. We find entertainment mesmorizing, and we often write about it. But we also think that many of the really interesting things in life are self-generated and peer-promoted.
We write about life as we see it and as it happens – rosey or not rosey, neat or messy, straightforward or crooked, sensible and insane…, funny or way-off-the-mark, young or young-at-heart…. (you can fill in the rest…aren’t antonyms a fun way to fill a page? – try it on your next company memo, better yet – start rattling some off when you’re called on to comment in your next boring meeting…’brilliant’ they’ll all be thinking…brilliant).
Channon grew up wrong. The first 21 years went swimmingly…and then she found herself staring at color bars on a computer screen all day for not much money. She is now a studying journalism at CUNY’s Graduate School for Journalism and freelancing as a multi-media journalist. Link to Channon’s Articles
Simone (aka Chocoholic) is generally curious about all things, which makes it really difficult to become good at anything. Currently, she works in the corporate-ish world of TV, but one day hopes to be writing for it instead.
She is skeptical of people that regularly eat ice-cream in the winter and wonders why there are words that are pronounced differently and have different meanings despite being spelled the same (like envelope or progress). Link to Simone’s Articles
John K. (aka nothingjerk ) finds everything quirky and interesting worth pondering over all day long instead of doing your boring work. He is, however, very good at doing his work, too. Link to John’s Articles Here
Michelle (aka Michelle) loves to travel and her favorite places include Cuba, Italy and Argentina. When not traveling, she finds inspiration in thought-provoking movies, great novels, and debating ideas with her husband. Link to Michelle’s Articles Here
Monika (aka Monika) is a poet & photographer living in Harlem. She is the author of Ms’d Opportunities, a collection of poetry. Her second collection, Struggling for Beauty, is due out in spring 2009. Link to Monika’s Articles
