CLUAS Writers: profile of Cormac Looney
Embittered real-life news reporter living Greil Marcus-fantasy world through medium of Cluas. Less chance of being sued here and the company's good. Likes: Wooden instruments, bars (musical and non), Saturday afternoons, Manhattan (second only to Athlone), idly listening to the radio while driving, burritos with corona, girlfriend. Dislikes: Mostly everything else, particularly Irish singer-songwriters.
Joined CLUAS: August 2001
