Introducing the Cranky Weekly Review Presented by Oakland International Airport

Cranky Weekly Review

When I killed off the weekly “3 Links I Love” post last month, I told you something new was coming. Today I’m pleased to announce that every Friday will be home to the Cranky Weekly Review presented by Oakland International Airport. The first post will be next Friday, September 30.

What exactly is the Cranky Weekly Review? If you were a subscriber to Cranky Daily, this will be very familiar. Instead of daily, however, we will post the 5 top trends of the week along with some potpourri and Andrew’s famed dad joke moment of levity every Friday afternoon.

If you don’t know who Andrew is, well, you’re missing out. He has written most Cranky Dailies and has been instrumental in putting on the Cranky Network Awards — he was the guy pacing back and forth and sweating when we had those sound issues last year with our vendor — all while also doing his duty as a concierge and being a partner in a marketing company. He’s a busy man.

If you were a subscriber to Cranky Daily, you already know that today is your last issue. We know that’s sad, but on the other hand, you’ll now get a weekly post with similar content absolutely free. Why on earth would we do that? Thank OAK.

The good people at Oakland International Airport were fans of Cranky Daily, but they decided that the world should get to enjoy our snark and most importantly, Andrew’s levity. They’ve become the title sponsor of the Cranky Weekly Review so everyone can now read it. We thank them, and you will too once you’ve had a chance to read a couple issues.

You now have one week to build up impossibly high expectations for our first issue next Friday. Let’s hope the airlines give us plenty of good fodder to meet those expectations.

(Oh, and I apologize in advance if any ongoing Cranky Daily jokes — like Wheneverfest or WestJet’s archnemesis Eastar Jet — sneak into the CWR. It’s going to happen, but feel free to hit the comments and we can explain if needed.)

  1. Great work on Cranky Daily! Going to miss it, but it was an awesome product since 2020 )and prior to that, Cranky Coronavirus Daily Update).

      1. Correction, this is a DC-9! Should have known Cranky would use a Long Beach constructed aircraft instead of a Seattle one! Those two rectangles above the yellow cranky box give it away.

  2. > You now have one week to build up impossibly high expectations for our first issue next Friday.

    Andrew will reveal the true identity of D. B. Cooper in next Friday’s first issue of CWR next week, solving the mystery and definitively quieting all skeptics and conspiracy theorists.

    /How’s that for “impossibly high expectations”?

    Then again, my avgeek ability to recognize the plane in the photo is limited to “airstairs + rear engines = D. B. Cooper = 727, maybe?” so I may have misidentified that plane. :-)

  3. The NEA case is supposed to go to trial Tuesday, Sept. 27. Maybe that will provide some interesting fodder for your first issue.
