Lozo put together a nice list of things he'd change if he were "Mayor" of Deadspin, which is a far more accurate title than "Editor."
It'll be interesting to see what direction the Gawker folks go in making the hire, but we can't imagine the site will get better than it was in the early days.
The guy is the best Web writer on the, ugh, Web and is mind-fuckingly funny.
A few bloggers have put out odds on who the next "Editor" or "Mayor" or whatever will be. Maybe it should be an election and not a job application. We would endorse MJD. Or write in ourselves. But we don't think of ourselves as an "Editor," so that wouldn't really work.
If we had to rank the likely candidates, here's how we'd go:
2. Lozo (don't think he's actually interested)
3. Big Daddy Drew
We played this game in our last Ramblings post, but it was so mind-fuckingly (great new term, yes?) fun, we'll play again, but with a new person.
To sleep with Allison Stokke -- one night, no strings attached, no anal -- how far would you go? Would you...
-Give up red meat for a year?
-Lose (without pain) your left small toe?
-Go to work naked?
-Not have any other sex the rest of the year?
-Watch an entire hockey game?
-Admit to liking Jack Black?
Anyone see that new Adam Sandler train wreck? If "Click" didn't put a hiccup in his movie career, this one surely will.
Saw a bumper sticker yesterday that said, "I love my kids."
Way to go out on a limb on that one. We don't imagine you would drive around with a bumper sticker that said, "I beat my child," or "I thought about flushing my baby down the toilet at Prom."
But "I love my kids"? OK, whatever. Beats the "My child is an Honor Student" bullshit.
Sports. Let's talk about sports.
College World Series. Love it! We're rooting for Fresno St. at this point, obviously, but we think Rice and Miami are the teams to beat.
NBA Finals? Could care less. Two days between games in the same location is absolutely outrageous, but getting into that would be like beating Barbaro or Eight Belles. (Hey-O! Zing! (That, by the way, is our third -- and certainly not last -- time making that joke)).
A double parenthesis is strange and probably grammatically incorrect.
