I still stand by this one.
This one ran with a graphic that Jake Newton made. It was a team effort.
This is probably a good example of “baptism through column-writing fire.” I don’t know how common that occurs.
I don’t write much about sports or emo anymore.
I received some positive feedback on this one. All the songs mentioned were real ones I heard in Ping, so I guess you could call it an investigative effort.
After being asked by The Post’s former opinion editor to write a humor column, this was the first one I turned in. I don’t think it was a bad first effort, but it’s easy to tell that I had ways to go. At the time, I was all about getting jokes and secret references in and less focused on proving or satirizing something. I still like jokes, though, even if I’m the only one laughing.
