To me, just as good as Jack Blacks distinctive style of comedy are the characters that have been created for this movie. But thats DreamWorks Animation for you. How could the company that brought us Shrek, Madagascar, and Bee Movie not give us something crazy cool (and, yes, crazy is the word of the day)?
In fact, these characters are so cool and complex, they may remind you of people you know or even of yourself. Dont believe me? Head back to our website (did I mention its www.americanwaymag.com?) and take the Kung Fu Panda quiz.
Just by answering five simple questions, you can find out which character youre most like. And, yes, Im serious. To make this more fun, see if you can figure out which character I am! Send your vote in to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Speaking of voting, thank you for your input in our Readership Survey. It provided us with all kinds of interesting information on your likes and dislikes (I was especially excited to see that half of you know that we publish the magazine twice a month; were gaining ground!), which well use to shape future issues.
But because I tend to focus on the negative, lets talk about Word of Mouth. Thats the new story we run each issue in which locals give you the inside scoop on what not to miss in their cities.
Also, in each issue , we ask you for recommendations on your favorite cities, places you travel to often, or your hometown.
Do you know how many of those recommendations weve received? Fewer than five. Way fewer than five. How can that be? I know you guys know about a lot of places. And to road warriors like yourselves, trading great finds is like what trading baseball cards is for kids. Why withhold that information? Do you just not want to share your favorite hangouts? Are you not reading these tips? Are you afraid youll see me there and the place will be ruined forever? Come on, give it a shot if not for me, then for your fellow travelers.
But enough negativity. On a positive (and final) note, please welcome the newest member of our staff, associate editor Jessica Jones. Shell be responsible for bringing you our outstanding cover celebrities as well as all the great information in Down- Low, our entertainment section in the back of the magazine.
Feel free to send her your thoughts, concerns, and compliments (at email@example.com). Just please dont drive her crazy!
