the [award] goes to kris chen

Several weeks ago Kris Chen, who works at Domino Records US, wrote me to tell me that he didn't belong on the Promocopy Players list. "I think real publicists are jealous because I'm not one," he told me. "I run the mailroom and pay the bills and pretend to be a publicist when I don't have enough budget to hire one." I guess I had caught him on a few of those occasions when he was pretending.

I only mention it now because I've made him Promocopy's honorary mascot. "Sadly," he said at the time. "I don't think anyone is jealous. Yet." How could I not be charmed?

Also, Kris: If you find this demeaning, feel free to tell me to knock it off.
