Jerilyn Jordan Cook is a Detroit-based storyteller and is currently the music editor with the Detroit Metro Times.
As her alter ego, Cunter S. Thompson, she has coined the term “glitter gonzo” to describe her brand of journalism which is equal parts personal exorcism as it is right time, right place eavesdropping.
Terrence Malick once wrote her a letter about love. Upon meeting her, she will likely tell you about all the times she almost died (at least 5) and almost every conversation includes an intimate detail about an ex-lover. She can compare any one of their scents to a childhood cereal.
Jerilyn loves when things are difficult. She talks about Radiohead a lot and dreams of being in the writer’s room for the reboot of Frasier. She is currently writing her second screenplay (and re-writing her first one,) a memoir, and dreams of Kyoto. Ironically, she thinks most music is only ok.
jJerilyn loves karaoke, Radiohead, and identifies with the hopeless romanticism of Frasier Crane. SHE IS CURRENTLY WRITING A SCREENPLAY, A MEMOIR, AND DREAMS OF LAS VEGAS. IRONICALLY, SHE THINKS MUSIC IS ONLY OK. jJ
