Local website blog4reel has announced the winners of its inaugural most filmable web journal competition. Local artist and UTSA grad Tom Trevino took home top honors for his blog chocolate mojo, beating out second-place winner Alex Pollack’s Writing the Ship, which chronicles his experiences as an English teacher in South Korea, and Connecticut resident Tina Roberts’s tina-cious.com.
Considering Roberts, a self-described [sic] “35-year-old, former Mormon, turn teenaged mom, turn lesbian,” only took home third place, you have to assume that either Trevino and Pollack are way more interesting than their descriptions made them sound or the judges graded pretty heavily on grammar.
As the grand-prize winner, Trevino, whose most recent blog as of this writing details accidentally deleting his iTunes wishlist, wins $2,000 and help from the site’s administrators — filmmakers Kimberly Suta and Catherine Nored — adapting his blog into a film. If they make a movie titled Chocolate Mojo, I'm pretty sure they're required by law to cast Samuel L. Jackson in the lead, even if he doesn't look anything like Trevino.
