Post Dispatch


A couple of times over the course of this website's checkered history, I've professed my respect, love, lust, what-have-you for Arianna Huffington.

I'll do her the favor of not calling her the Greek goddess of political commentary or anything like that, but there's no doubt that she's one of the strongest minds wrapped inside one of the nicest faces you're likely to find anywhere these days.

I've never passed up an opportunity to praise her or her excellent online journal, the Huffington Post.

Well, I'll assume that it couldn't have been my fanboy attempts at flattery, but for whatever reason I've now been asked to be a regular contributor to the Huffington Post.

They say it's an honor to have me onboard -- which just shocks the ever-loving shit out of me, seeing as how I'm basically an overgrown adolescent miscreant who only recently stopped drinking too much and who'll probably die with his hands wrapped around his XBOX controller.

Translation: The honor is all mine.

I'll post updates here whenever I write something for HuffPo.

One more thing -- seeing as how I said I loved Arianna Huffington and it landed me a gig writing for her, let me take this opportunity to say how I'd do just about anything to "write for" Liz Phair.

I used to tell Alyssa Milano all the time how I would make her favorite kind of pancakes with those cinnamon almonds you get at the fair, but according to that court order, I guess the judge doesn't appreciate my pancake recipe so much, even though how sweet little Alyssa likes her pancakes in the morning is none of that judge's business.


Jesus H. Christ On A Stick, congratulations, dude!

Congratulations, Chez!

That's awesome news! I think you definitely deserve the praise and newly found accolaids. I'm excited to read your first post!

Congratulations, Chez! I'm already a fan of HuffPo (and how can anyone not love Ms. Huffington?) but with you contributing it's like my favorite internet people have come together. Now I'll never get anything done on the days you post there.

Congrats Chez...surely even more people now will bear witness to your writing talents...at the same time as increasing the number of people you will piss off. Kudos chief.

Congrats! I'll keep my eyes peeled, and I'm pretty sure your posts will at least be better than Jermaine Dupri's.

Margie said...

Kudos. Keep her in line, because she's getting a little too big for her britches.

From the Living section of HuffPo: Oprah Talks Masturbation.

Looks like you've got your first column.

Congratulations, Chez. Really, I couldn't be happier for you.

ok now instead of shitting on me with your email blasts such as:
"Deus Ex Malcontent has published a new blog post on MySpace" a site I despise - just fucking tell me when you are on Huffington.

It is quite a compliment she recognizes your talent(s). She deserves to invoked with high esteem. She was married to a closet case and turned into a non-bitter fag hag - love her for it.

Good luck Chez - keep on doing whatever the fuck you do :)

Get Talaga on Huffington too.

any thoughts on what the first rant, er, contribution shall be? and, which pic shall represent you?

Jon said...

Damn, Chez...
My first two stops on the daily internet trawl are Pajiba and HuffPo.
SERIOUS congratulations and I look forward to reading your contributions.
I concur with your opinions on Arianna but the fact that your share my love for all things Phair moves you WAY up in the pantheon.
Have fun over there!
