The Opposite of Sex

This is an amazing, brilliant and yes very black comedy about the joy of teenage pregnancy. It stars the wonderfully dark Christina Ricci and yes I saw it on a Wednesday. (See Adam’s Family). The story line is not so simple. It involves a gay brother, (or half brother) and disturbed and troubling Lisa Kudrow, and last of all a single balled boyfriend. Confused yet? Well Ms. Ricci’s narration makes it all fairly easy to follow and not difficult to understand. Lyle Lovett also stars. It is however fun. Well written so you don’t realizes how dark the path really is. It, at one hour and forty-five minutes you are sucks you in the entire time. It is definitely a movie you will remember for a long time to come. It is entertaining, engaging and just wonderful to see over and over again. While I admit it lost a little the 2nd time around it still scores high in my book. Grade B+

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
