What Makes You So Special?

gawker_guest_editor.jpgJust as there's hardly an actor/waiter left in New York who hasn't made rent by doing a couple day's work on some Law & Order spin-off or other as an at-first tearful but increasingly suspecious relative or a neighbor who conveniently pins down the time of death by recounting what they were watching on TV, there's hardly a blogger left in the city who hasn't had to feign interest in Radar Magazine and cop to a fondness for the hard stuff while doing a "guest-editor" stint at some Gawker Media blog or other.

Forget S.I. Newhouse, Nick's clearly on his way to becoming the Dick Wolf of the blogosphere, increasingly intdistinguishable spin-offs and all.

Come to think of it, Dickwolfer kinda sounds like a Gawker Media title already. Come to think of it. heh.

Memo to Diane Neal: Who are you again? [gawker.com]
GET YOUR 15 MINUTES! [radarmagazine.com]
Blogging, as in Slogging [nyt on guest-blogging, via gawker, please make me pure.]

[but not yet. 5/18 update with the best disclaimer ever: "(Disclaimer: Everybody involved in the Gawker-Radar spat works for or with everybody else involved, including The Observer.)"]

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
