Sorry it took so long before I decided to write another critique™. I couldn’t because of… bears. You know, I had to drink a lot of beers… oops! I mean bears… To gather the courage to write a critique about the monster of ENC: Jim. You know, this guy was there since the beginning, he even is the author of the first user submitted article: Eaglelandian Idol. People tried to describe Jim’s style over the year but only one person came close. Yes! You guessed right: David Bowie. Almost everyone agrees that he was right about Jim with his “Golden years, gooooooooold WHOP WHOP WHOP”. It’s not an easy task to review Jim… But I shall try, risking my soul and my job, and bears.
Like I said before, Jim is the very first writer to submit an article to ENC. On top of it, this first article is one of the few Jim’s article with no badge. We shall remediate to the problem. So this critique™ will be in the honor of this awesome article.
Eaglelandian Idol may not be Jim’s finest piece of work, but it is still a great article. The reasons: humor, cultural references, it’s written by Jacky, and, most of all, it’s a highly informative opinion article. It really goes well with a cold bear. I remember being in Summers, on the beach, reading my copy of ENC and just drift away in the pure pleasure of Jim’s dad’s son’s articles. Okay, maybe “The Runaway Five are the Jackie Chans of the music industry” but Jim is the Runaway Five of EarthBoundy journalism.
Jim, you managed to do the impossible: You got out of Eugene Levy’s shadow. Congratulation! I raise this bear to you!
