About me

Occupation Officemonkey
Location Medford, MA, United States
Introduction The Caustic Critic is a sometimes-writer and wannabe cartoonist. A great lover of TV and pop-culture, a fativist, a terrible dancer, an avid tambourine-player, a rabid bookworm, an expert on disaster-related literature, and a burrito enthusiast. A rogue critic, refusing to bow to society's standards of "good" or "bad", refusing to allow perceived "coolness" to influence the reviews. With a heartfelt appreciation for cheesiness, trashiness, and well-played sap, the Caustic Critic will show no mercy to the pretentious, the boring, or the overwrought. She will take no prisoners, and will not hesitate to hate that which everyone else loves. She is also on a mission to rescue Nicolas Cage from himself. Current progress: *headdesk*
