Mutual Appreciation Blogging

This is totally cool: the Alliance of Women Film Journalists, one of the best sources for film criticism on the web, has named me one of their “Men We Love” of 2008. As you’ll see, I’m in great company here, so this is very exciting news.  The AWFJ continues to do outstanding work, so if you haven’t yet bookmarked their site (or added it to your blogroll), you really should.

    Congrats, Chuck. I see I’m there too, for my savvy legal advice, no less. Well, my namesake, but given that the other Jonathan Grays out there include a porn photographer and a scary looking kids musician on a group called “Jump Children” (a band whose grammar worries me), it’s nice to see I have better company.

    But for being the actual Chuck Tryon they’re talking of, bravo. Your blog deserves as many kudos as it gets and more.

    I did a double take when I saw “your” name on the list. I had no idea that you were moonlighting as a lawyer. The same name thing has always been interesting to me, as well. There are a surprising number of prolific “Chuck Tryons” out there, including a fly fisherman and a fantasy novelist.

    Thanks for the kind words about the blog!

    I’m also a Biblical archaeologist, a football player, and if you shorten to Jon or John, I wrote the Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus series, I’m a British philosopher-cultural critics, a Canadian playwright. I get around. I’m surprised to hear that the Chuck Tryons of the world do too. Good for you 🙂

    It’s a surprisingly common combination, even if my last name is relatively rare. I’d forgotten that you (sort of) share a name with the “Men are From Mars” dude.
