Mourning a Loss

Gentle friends, the thorough destruction of Gawker.com is underway. Peruse the postings this week and you will see ample evidence of the decline. (Journalism school would have served Ms. Coen well.) Please join me as I don a black sackcloth and walk the streets in mourning. We'll be gathering in the lobby of Conde Nast at 2PM.

A Touch of Irony

Sweet, sweet irony:

Huh. Does Maxim staff have experience writing? Were these guys putting actual words in the mag? And when were there words in Maxim? Has anyone read these supposed words? Do FHM and Stuff have words too?

The Death of Gawker

A 24-year-old named Jessica Coen was named the Editor of Gawker.com, the inside New York media/gossip site beloved by so many. She has no writing experience. The personal blog she's written until now has been a joke. And she didn't even move to New York City until two weeks ago.

Today, gentle friends, Gawker died.
