Associated Content is a pioneer among online publishers. It operates as a sort of topic-specific encyclopedia of modern knowledge, and articles are written by a teeming fleet of freelance Content Producers.
I am an AC Content Producer and here are a couple of my pieces:
“Restaurants to Help You Survive Boston as a Vegetarian”
“The Running of the Brides at Filene’s Basement”
“A Comparison of Hoop Dreams and Boys of Baraka“
“An Application of Fair Use Laws”
“Inexpensive Wedding Gifts”
My father, Big Pops, maintains a voicemail message on his business line that I hope he never elects to erase. It is worth calling on your lunch break. It is prime material for a screenplay. It is infamous.
His tone is so severe, you are waiting for him to ask you for proof of citizenship, and what you did – exactly – on Feb. 4, 1983. He could scare ex-boyfriends into last year.
After he announces his name and title, he says, “Presently, I am unavailable due to the fact that I…”
Then, he details every reason why he isn’t available to receive your call.
He is on the other line. He is meeting with a client. He got religion.
He has acid indigestion. He just saved a bundle on his car insurance.
It is roughly 7 minutes long.
