To go off of my last point, in which I discussed being so thrilled to write about films, I find this:

Citing "economic reasons" at The Village Voice, critic Nathan Lee said today that he was laid off by New York's alternative weekly effective immediately, according to The Reeler. The move marks the fourth recent full-time film writer departure at a New York paper, The Reeler's S.T. VanAirsdale noted, citing the recent Newsday announcement that Pat Wiedenkeller, Jan Stuart and Gene Seymour are exiting the daily. "And so I am, as they say, 'looking for work', though presumably not as a staff film critic as such jobs no longer appear to exist," Nathan Lee wrote in Monday's email, according to The Reeler.


Well, no work as a critic (I blame internet blogs).

I'll stick with finding art jobs. Film does not have good career opportunities. Ugh.
