Housekeeping: Say Hi (Again) To Maura Johnston

A quick note about happy news: We have somehow conned the amazing Maura Johnston into spending the next few weeks here with us. You know Maura from Idolator when it was good, her recaps of "American Idol", and the terrific contributions she has made on this site previously. Maura will be tasked with writing all the lady stuff that Messrs. Sicha, Bry and I are too masculine to address. KIDDING! She's going to write whatever she wants. Anyway, we're thrilled to have her and we hope you will be as well. One small warning: She'll have access to our general e-mail line (to which you send so many helpful links and stories that we are so very grateful for), so those of you who use that address to offer graphic details of your Choire Sicha sexual fantasies might wish to find another forum in which to share those. Thanks! This should be fun.

This place wouldn't be half-bad with a woman's touch.

She lives near me.
I sent her a note telling her that once.
She never replied.
That alone is reason enough to like her.

I get sick and you all go around shaking things up? Well… well… well… I LIKE IT!

^ This is obviously in the wrong place. Sorry Rod :(

I've been a fan ever since her radio show on WPRB. Great addition, Awl.

Aww, how'd I miss that? Well, all the more reason to give you a big "Hi (Again)", Maura!

Let's be honest, Maura's only hanging around until the Zac Posen campaign expires. She's in it for the discounts!

I do like this! And thanks Maura for the pazz and jop introduction, I'm still making my way through all the ballots and finding new things I love all the time!

theheckle (#621)

Wait. Can't we just expand the pool of people we have detailed sexual fantasies about?

Mindpowered (#948)

Indeed. My Choi-ra Princess of power Dom fantasy is on it's way.

deepomega (#1,720)

Speaking of graphic Sicha-related fantasies, I'ma put on my Outsider Hat and ask: What is the proper pronunciation of Choire?

Rod T (#33)


Ha okay fine. It's as in "Haim" or "Feldman." SURPRISE!

jolie (#16)

Please to bring back the pronunciation mp3?

deepomega (#1,720)

You just blew my FACE right off of my HEAD. Not what I was expecting! What is happening!

garge (#736)

Still waiting for the results for Scocca ..

David Cho (#3)

Just put the MP3 on the About page.

brad (#1,678)

does not compute.

"Cho, ire."

Bittersweet (#765)

?!?!?!? on the Haim/Feldman thing. Anyone know how to pronounce 'Bry'?

Bittersweet (#765)

(P.S. Sticking with "choir" pronunciation in my head as world is unstable enough already.)

garge (#736)

Oh, Bry was covered .. is like brie, the cheese!

HiredGoons (#603)


deepomega (#1,720)

I guess I literally could have googled "choire pronunciation" and read the first hit but fuck. that. noise. (Literally! It's an mp3!)

deepomega (#1,720)

Bitteersweet, yeah, same! This is too much change for my poor brain to handle. Next I will learn that balk is some sort of Gaelic or Welsh shit. Pronounced Bwo-lal-lal-kay.

garge (#736)

Hurrah! Just try not to leave them marked as read, dear Maura, until the sexual propositions are received as directed. (If you could put in a good word for me .. ?)

cherrispryte (#444)

Wooohooo femiladyism!

irishbreakfast (#4,123)

Does this mean you guys are finally going to stop making out in public and just get a room? Yay Maura!

MikeBarthel (#1,884)

I look forward to the in-depth investigation of Nuno's departure from Satellite Party.

maebefunke (#154)

Excellent news. !!!

Does this mean it's safe to say rude things about . . . oh nevermind.

jfruh (#713)

Ha ha, my plans for making big money off a members-only Choire/Balk slashfic message board are finally coming to fruition!

I love Maura for telling me who Justin Bieber is a few months ago. Now I'm so in the know with the kids these days and their shaggy-coiffed Canadian pop stars!
So, Yay!

whygreenberg (#1,880)

Cool but you left out the most important info here: where do we now send our descriptions of our Choire Sicha sexual fantasies???

myfanwy (#1,124)

I, for one, welcome our new female overlords.
