Just Reminding a site of interesting and odd news, reviews and pundits.
About the TV & Movie Critic: Gary is a graduate of NYU’s Dramatic Writing Program, reasonably tall and pleasant smelling. Yet the caprices of fate and a godless universe have doomed him to work in an insurance office, where he vents his frustration by critiquing the creative output of others. Like all critics, he is single and childless and therefore watches entirely way too much television. He is also known to appreciate Stanley Kubrick, Martin Scorcese, Buster Keaton, Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello, Frank Sinatra, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Hunter S. Thompson, Christopher Hitchens, Audi, Infiniti, Aston Martin, New York City, London, certain parts of Los Angeles, the Sonoma coastline, Chicago style pizza, Super Burger in Santa Rosa, and Craisins. The woman who designed this site probably has an entirely different perspective on him.
About the Publisher: If Gary smells good, the female publisher smells even better. This women pushes Gary to the brink of insanity, in his personal and electronic tech life, forcing him to learn and use the latest technology. When this blog began, Gary’s missives were written on lambskin with his bar mitzvah fountain pen, then sent by overland courier to Mountain View, California where he assumed wizards transferred it to what you kids call the internet.
Joanna met Gary at a San Francisco bar in 2007 and since then has frustrated him to the point that their relationship can be adapted into either a hit comedy or murder suicide. She has been referred to as equal parts “Mary Ann” and “Ginger” from Gilligan’s Island, “Felix” and “Oscar” from The Odd Couple, and “Ethel” from I Love Lucy. Gary, on the other hand thinks of Joanna as “Amber Wilson” aka “Cutthroat Bitch,” from House. Although Joanna wasn’t too pleased about this strikingly accurate comparison, she does admit the others fits her diverse complexity as an entrepreneurial and analytic girl next door, as well as a sexy vixen who can drive any man crazy. Just go with it. Joanna founded Just Reminding and organizes the content, the contributors and sites out reach.
