137: Shangri-La-Di-Da

Shangri-La-Di-Da

"As an outsider to the industry whose only window into the tenuous relationship between PR companies and publications has been a few Penny Arcade posts and snippets of bygone E3 coverage, I vaguely expected The Escapist to be inundated with free games and useless swag: T-shirts, key chains, coasters, you name it. It's been two weeks, and I don't even have so much as a glossy press release to show for my newly acquired credentials. Turns out, someone has to know you exist before you get the full PR treatment."

Jordan Deam, AKA "The New Guy," opens up about his first few days at The Escapist.

So now the world knows you exist you'll get deluged with free t-shirts? ;-)

You are where I want to be. Couple more years, maybe.

Yes, now we know The Escapist has a new writer.
Was this the point of this article?

I'm disappointed.

Good luck in Durham man. It's 3.5 hours to Asheville, sweet bluegrass, and great mountain scenery.
