CSTB : Launching Pad For All Sorts Of Multimedia Exposure, Acclaim

Posted in Internal Affairs, non-sporting journalism, politics at 4:23 pm by

OK, that’s not entirely true. There’s no evidence to suggest the outside activities of this blog’s talented contributors have in any fashion become more lucrative in the wake of their CSTB notoriety. But with no money to pay any of the new writers, I’ve got to do something to make it look like this is a useful stepping stone.

I have to admit, I’d never heard of the Sex Positive Journalism Awards, but now that I have, I’m pretty fucking sure Matt Ufford’s never been nominated for one. Our own Jason Cohen, however, is one of 2008’s winners, his July ’07 “There’s Something About Mary’s” (a Portland Monthly profile of a venerable local strip joint) was recognized as a 3rd place finisher.

Not to be outdone, David Roth can be seen at Slate.com, creating a homemade /  econo political ad. You’ve got to admit, he accomplished a ton without once showing a revolving door or mentioning Willie Horton.

    David, you’ve got this Chicagoan’s votes.

    Thanks, Rob. I promise I’ll never let you down. Unless you ask me to do a good job looking comfortable on camera. Then you’re on your own, bub.

    Despite ducking the Sox/Cub issues that divide Mr. Warmowski and myself, I will vote for you if there’s a city no-show job in it for me. Like I do around here.

    And Jason, exactly what is the difference between a strip club “revue” and just naked women dancing?

  5. Jason Cohen says:

    I think that sign has been up for almost as long as the club has existed. Definitely deceptive, like it holds the promise of Rockettes with no clothes on.
