Mmm, write Reviews for Money?

No, I haven't forgotten about you guys. I've been a little busy with work, apartment hunting, avoiding bum smells and what have you, but now I need your advice.

Chicks dig Pulitzers. And scars.

You see, I've got a few servings of hot, steamy busy-ness on my plate already, but I recently saw an ad on craigslist for movie reviewers for a very small weekly publication. They're hiring people to review new releases and offering to reimburse movie fees as compensation. So basically the work is for free, but I would get my name on something homeless people live in so in a way I'd be contributing to New York's civil infrastructure. Also, I think I might do it just to say I'm a professional and not be talking about male prostitution.

What do you guys think?

Oh god, man, do it. At worst, you'll have a notch on your professional resume. You'll be doing what you already do, except you won't have to pay for tickets. That's win-win-win situation shit right there.

Sarah said...

Have you reached out to them for more info yet? How you get reinbursed and when, etc? I say if it sounds legit than go for it. If nothing else you can use the reviews for your portfolio and maybe get a referrence out of it.

Sadie said...

I agree with mike spoodles. Do it. Worst case scenario, you right reviews, they don't pay you back for your tickets. And that sounds pretty much like what you got going on right now, so what's to lose?

In the battle between newsprint and bums, the bums always win.

That may not help you at all, but it's fun to think about regardless.

I'm pretty sure I'd jump a the chance, so I say YES do it.

Matt said...

mike - I've always wanted to be in a win-win-win situation. You sold me!

sarah - I've asked them for some info on the publication, but I'm still waiting for a response. I've got my fingers crossed.

sadie - Excellent points. I have absolutely nothing to lose. (That's good, right?)

fletch - Yes?

april - I'm gonna do it!

Matt said...

Update: It's possible somebody is curious what happened about this whole writing reviews for money affair. I'll tell you: I never got a reply. Stupid, teasing craigslist.
