Style Weekly Article On... Me

In this weeks Style Weekly (released today), you will find on Page 9 and here(JGF) on their website, an article discussing my recent spat with channel 6. YES, that is me in the picture. My secret crime-fighting persona has now been made public. The picture sucks, but I guess that's what you get when you're out till 3 AM the previous night drinking whatever is put in front of you.

Check out the article for a good laugh. In the 12 hours that this article has been on every street corner, restaurant and grocery store in Richmond, I've already received 15 texts/calls from people I haven't spoken to in months. I'm almost afraid of what this week holds in store for me now.

I'm going to try and make this the last time I mention Channel 6 and this whole incident. I feel like I'm basically poking a huge bear with a stick right now. It's funny, but I doubt that bear (channel 6) intends to stay quiet much longer.

Don't be afraid of a little old TV station man. Poke them and poke them again.

You'd be surprised at how non-big TV stations actually are.

You're much better looking in person.

I think the article painted you in a good light. Channel 6 on the other hand, well they sort of looked like fools.

Just heard about the story on a.m radio. They think it is hysterically funny. ME too! They gave Channel 5 the 'thin-skinned award'..

Can you use this as leverage to get hired by a channel 6 competitor? I mean, maybe you can do a special report on nightlife on the CW or something, I don't know. In any case, I suddenly feel that you have a future in TV. Your continual encounters with TV personas are all signs pointing in that direction.

This whole fiasco has been very entertaining to read about.

There's nothing sweeter than controversy when it comes to promoting your work, especially when it makes some jagoff look stupid.

DC- funny you should say the CW b/c I saw the esteemed Ric Young is now an anchor there while watching 90210 last night. So I think JGF is out as a reporter there.
And I think its a travesty the article did not mention your lawyer or his ability to crush coors light while still being able to wax eloquently about the first amendment. Jason if you are out there, I blame you for this oversight.

Poke away.

that tattoo on your arm says it all, JGF ... you're an egocentric and untalented fool ... funny when you get a quote inked on your arm that you can't 'even live up to ... pretty ironic, cracks me up

wow i always pictured you differently in my head.

JGF, you really don't have mastery of anything but how to make a piss poor mai tai and verbally masturbate online. But then again you are in your 20s and know it all. So, yep, good luck with that. At least you have some friends who are just as stupid as you. Lucky you. I mean, I agree that a lawsuit probably won't happen but it would be pretty classic if a bunch of faceless TV folks rushed your bar and then stiffed you. I'd like to see THAT blog post ... Cheers.

A mention in Style Weekly? For someone who calls blogging a hobby, that's pretty impressive JGF.

Don't let anonymous idiots rain on the parade!

Finally I get to see what you look like! As soon as things get better on my side, we'll meet and have a drink. After all, I believe you and I am the only Richmond bloggers that had been featured in Style Weekly so far!

Dude, that's awesome. I love all the haters too. If they don't like what you do on your blog, why are they still reading? Keep up the good work, man. All us old bartenders who got sucked into the real world in their late 20s continue to live vicariously through you...
