...And in Other News

My goodness gracious.

The alternative newsweekly corporation (yes, I know how contrary that sounds) for whom I toiled in the early '90s as a Corporate Editorial Assistant to several gimongous egos, including the previously mentioned mini-Anna Wintour, is preparing a New York invasion.

I knew they wanted to, way back then, but they must have really saved their pennies, because they just bought Village Voice, Inc.

What will this mean for New Yorkers? Ask someone in San Francisco. Prepare to be dazzled by ad-heavy tabloids with long-form stories written expressly for journalism award contests, and a visual style that, like a Grande Mocha at Starbucks, is the same wherever in the world you find it.

Just as long as they dont get rid of those great "massage" ads in the back. Those women are hot! What? They're not women? Oh, uh... right. I knew that.
