Booze News: Modern Drunkard Magazine #52

>> Friday, March 23, 2007

I’m afraid I must interrupt “W.C. Fields Week Part Deux” for a bit of news. Fear not, Fields fans, the Great Man figures into the story. As I was perusing the local Borders bookstore, I noticed that the new issue of Modern Drunkard Magazine was available (issue 52 to be precise). I opened it up, hoping to find my first film column, and I was disappointed to discover that it wasn’t there. Then, I noticed that my name was still amongst the contributors. It turns out I have a six-page article, “Driven to Drink: The Films of W.C. Fields” in the current issue. I submitted the piece back in November, and I wasn’t aware MDM was going to feature it this month. Otherwise, I would have made a previous mention.

So there you have it, fellow inebriates. The film column will begin in MDM #53, but in the meantime, pick up the current issue for the longer piece on soused cinema’s patron saint, William Claude Dukenfield (a.k.a. W.C. Fields).

I now return you to your previously scheduled “W.C. Fields Week Part Deux” already in progress.

You should proly get a subscription.

MDM sends comp copies along with payment, so if I have a regular column that should be the same as holding a subscription. I'll likely end up buying the mag on the newsstand anyway, because I can never wait to see how the staff laid out my material and if they changed any of the text. We Americans are impatient, instant gratification people.
