Eric Celeste Shoots a Middle Finger to Dallas

I wish I’d known about this earlier so I could have had the time to workshop my jokes. But our old buddy Eric Celeste has been named the editor in chief of Atlanta’s Creative Loafing. You can read how “incredibly excited” he is about the new gig on their blog. Feel free, those of you who know Eric, to use our comments section to tell the CL staff what they need to know about their new boss.

  1. Eric, we barely knew ye…or I barely knew ye. But I am confident you will have a shirt for every occasion in Atlanta. All the best.

  2. Whenever a young, eager journalist calls and asks to meet with me, I think of Eric. He took that call and had a meeting with me four years ago, which led to my first job at the papers and then my job at D. Thanks, Eric! Good luck.

  3. Oh no, what about his awesome special lady friend? Hoping she isn’t leaving too, but also hopiong they aren’t breaking it off. Dilemma.

  4. @Mark: If you had the over, you win. Took him longer than any of us figured to get run out of town.

    @Ohno: I could make about seven awesome jokes here. I love the guy, though. So I won’t. For now.

  5. Of course not — but I thought that the whole theme of Eric’s career was mediocrity. I was merely following suit.

  6. sorry to see Eric leave Dallas, but Creative Loafing is lucky to get him. favoriting their site now

  7. not sure i can legally discuss the kind of boss I found eric to be many moons ago at the met. ;) good luck old friend.
