Whalecome Aboard! Say hello to our new contributor, Gabriel Ruzin

Rachel Fox

May 23rd, 2012

Gordon and the Whale is very pleased to welcome Gabriel Ruzin to our team.

Gabriel began his meteoric online career writing a WordPress blog aptly titled "The Schadendude" (in a somewhat shaky bit of word play on "schadenfreude"), and has been a Contributing Editor to UK geek site Shadowlocked, as well as contributing to Mile High Cinema, AV Club Denver/Boulder (RIP), and HorseRacing.com (not a typo).

He lives in Denver, is married to the beautiful Leora (who continually proves that the Thinner curse isn't necessarily a bad thing) and is a stay-at-home dad to their 4-year-old daughter Natasha, aka The Amazing Vibrating Child.

An admirer of an oodles' worth of entertainment genres and a despiser of two oodles' worth, Gabriel loves black comedies, suspense, classic TV, and all things non-sucky. He is currently writing a book on The Twilight Zone for Applause Books. He's watched an estimated 900 films, but has never seen CITIZEN KANE.

    Only 900?

  • GabrielRuzin

    I’ve been using letterboxd and (to a greater extent) ICheckMovies to try to remember everything I’ve seen. I’m currently around 900. It will surely go up once I can remember more. It’s fun coming up with a number, but how would one honestly go about figuring out exactly how many movies they’ve seen, without missing some? It’s impossible.
