Nice piece...and apparently SCENE agreed...so nice they ran it twice...in the Comedy Issue in December and again in March for the City Guide.
Got a lot of positive feedback the first time...the second time--not so much.
A much bigger mistake was trying to stretch "I Moved To Cleveland" into a series, full of snarky Millennial one-liners about our biggest draws and tourist attractions... sorta like taking an amusing "feel-good-hit-of the-summer" comedic film and attempting to turn it into a "hip, cutting-edge, laff riot" sitcom series.
The formula worked once, and only once.
It didn't fly the second time around .
It's crashing and burning now.

This sounds like a conversation worth continuing. Wow!
Cleveland born and bred but now living in central PA. I like it here but in the spring and hall it smells so bad outside from the farms you don't even want to open your mouth outside. Cleveland will always be my home and I will end up moving back. My biggest complaint about Cleveland POTHOLES!!!
wish they would do something about that, came home one February for a visit and by the time I got go back to PA I needed an alignment. I am glad you like your new home.
Really? So you are going to do a very poor satire article on a talented artist who has helped hundreds of thousands of out of state dollars to Cleveland and Ohio as well as helped Cleveland get into national conversations? Don't get mad because he had the courage to chase his dream and bet on himself and actually succeeded .
How you gonna have the name of the city in the name of the magazine and trash an artist that is constantly puts on for the city.... SCENE IS TRASH
Are you kidding? What a waste of Internet space. Don't you guys have better things to report? Why bash a local artist, one who is doing quite well at that!
Wow, that's singlehandedly the worst satire I've ever had the displeasure of wasting my time reading. 0/10 article, didn't laugh once, and quite frankly putting MGK on blast after essentially bringing cleavland on the map is a little ignorant. Elaina, kindly suck a fat one.
LeBron James, who again left the Cavs for Miami in July 2016 and after three more stunning championship performances with the Heat over the next five seasons, has announced that he will return to Cleveland for his final NBA campaign in 2021-2022. An irate Stephen A. Smith announces to the world that the contract gives James total autonomy over the daily operation of the franchise -- including the hiring of arena ushers and food vendors.
The only stipulation is the live reads for the few sponsors the stations have must be weaved into the enlightening arguments.....the placebo masquerading as something all natural, ticket scalpers operating as legit box offices and places to buy heavily marked up golf gear (Look great while shooting 108!) -- remain quite popular in the market.
You jokers do realize this article is a sarcastic commentary on the future, right? These things haven't actually happened in the present.
By 2021, the franchise will have a new ownership and be known as the Las Vegas Chips.

Goddammit, I want my shortcut from the West Side to Wade Oval Wednesday. How else can I get there sooner and earlier? I need to get to the Circle ASAP... fast enough to snag a parking space and to keep the east suburban Canadians from hogging all the best patches of lawn.
Get this damn thing fixed!

Trying too hard to be funny again , eh?
Grade: C-/D+...Revise and re-submit.
Will be watching this ThreadSpace for a second draft.
keep up the good work Henry...somebody has to
Jackson will face the toughest challenge he ever had during his lengthy political career......as Dallas Cowboys quarterback and Super Bowl MVP Johnny Manziel shocked the NFL by stating he wants to make things right in Cleveland and announced his retirement from the game, while purchasing a home in the city for a mayoral bid.
.....and only the classic tag team of Jimmy Dimora and Frank Russo can right the wrong!
Pretty sure this would be classified under "satire", Terry V.
I appreciate that CLE Scene is trying hard to 'make up' neighborhoods. The fact of the matter is your have these: West and East Bank Flats, Ohio City, Detroit-Shoreway, Tremont, Old Brooklyn, Uptown (Case/Hospital/Museum District), maybe a few more. Were are not NYC so stop trying to make up these 2-square block areas and call them something. If the editors, residents and business owners don't even know they live in these areas or the geographical boundaries , then they don't exist....get it! If you refute my post then please provide a detailed map. I do like having named neighborhoods but lets get real here.
