Hey, sometimes I do things other than write movie reviews and talk trash on the internet. A narrative nonfiction essay I wrote, “Welcome to the Gun Show,” was just published by Gris-Gris, a literary journal out of Nicholls State University in Louisiana. It’s about the first time I ever shot a gun, which didn’t end well. But don’t worry, I still manage to talk about movies quite a bit—it’s really all about the discrepancy between my lifelong fascination with ultraviolent cinema and a general abhorrence of real world violence. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but it’s a damn good time. Hit the jump to give it a read.
