Booze News: Meet the Newest Columnist for Modern Drunkard Magazine

>> Sunday, February 25, 2007

Glorious news! The editor of Modern Drunkard Magazine checked out the Booze Movies blog and invited me to write a regular film column for the illustrious periodical. The column will cover the same territory as this site--reviews, news, and features spanning the history of soused cinema. However, that doesn’t mean that Booze Movies is going away. If anything, there will be more inebriated exchanges between liquor-centric film fans, as the magazine drives more traffic to the site.

I will try to keep to my schedule of a posting a couple of new reviews each week. However, I want to make sure the majority of each column consists of material that has not appeared on the blog (there will be some overlap). Consequently, I may post less content on the weeks in which I’m preparing material that will premiere in MDM.

The first column is a mixture of the old and the new. My review of Withnail and I is the old, but the column will also feature a new review of a flick similarly centered around drunken camaraderie. I won’t reveal the movie’s title here, but if you know your film history, the photo that accompanies this post is a dead giveaway.

The magazine is going to press on Monday, so my first column should be hitting the newsstands soon. However, if you can’t find MDM at a store near you, subscriptions can be obtained at If you enjoy the content here at Booze Movies, you’re sure to love the rest of the potted prose that fills each issue. After all, some of the world’s best writers have been hoochhounds.

Now, I think I’ll enjoy a celebratory drink.

Congrats garv...although I contratted you already.

Um, while I am all in favor of the celebratory drink I also noticed that your last entry was posted at 8:35am.

If you can't develop the self-restraint to wait until 9:00am for that first drink you may not be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor for long.

What the hell am I talking about...I probably have no business posting here anyhow. My biggest vices these days are choclate milk and hot dogs.

I bet the hot dogs get you before the rye gets me. Actually, I could see us going out together in some highly embarrassing and public accident that rains shame down upon both our houses.

I hate it when it shame-rains.

Cool! It's nice to hear that there is a Modern Drunkard Magazine today! This is another good contribution to the old and new issues about drunken camaraderie that can be discussed in a magazine. Keep it up!
