On 11/25/15, I've requeried Jonah Straus with Venom. I've nudged him after the holidays, 2.5 weeks ago and didn't hear back. CNR. I'll try him in March with Chain Reaction.

4/25/16: 4/25/16--On 2/22/16, I've requeried Jonah with Chain Reaction. After a nudge I've sent him two weeks ago, it's CNR.

check his website prior to submission because his genres here don't match his genres there.
