My Current Obsession

I've already discussed my love affair with Entertainment Weekly (Yes. I realize this is not something to brag about. I'd be much cooler if I was really into Pitchfork or NME, but I'm really not that cool) and reading ew.com fuels my obsession with my favorite columnist, Dalton Ross.

I first noticed Dalton when he wrote What to Watch each week for the magazine. It was hilarious and became my favorite part of each issue (no one else made reading about Temptation Island and Making the Band so funny and entertaining). Now, he writes a weekly column called The Glutton and provides Survivor TV Watch online. Reading his columns is the highlight of my websurfing each week. He is the ultimate beta male (which is so hot right now), he's married to Christina Kelly of Sassy magazine (which significantly shaped who I am today) and he likes most of the things I like (which makes him a genius). He also includes an Obsession of the Week and a video Top 5 in his columns...two things I write all the time. Actually, I think my obsession is so great, I've started to emulate Dalton. Maybe I need and EW intervention...

I subscribed to EW for 14 years and only recently let my subscription lapse. I still wake up with the shakes.

I'm telling you, the website fills the void!

Replace Dalton Ross with Josh Wolk and you have my obsession. It's really quite terrible. I've even dreamt about him a couple of times. That sounds awfully obsessive, huh?

He's just so.. so.. deliciously everything I ever wanted in a humorist. I can hardly wait for my EW in the mail to see what he's contributed.

I do like Josh Wolk, too. Does he know you've dreamt about him?!?

My obsession with Dalton has been so very long, he's #1 for me. I'm glad I'm not the only one with strange obsessions with EW writers :)
