Snark/Riff

Hey guys, maybe we should investigate some sort of joint-venture opportunity with Riffmarket. Rex just pointed to one of his posts. This is my first exposure, and his voice is terrific: sharp, fluid, fair.

I admit it, I’m really only linking because it’s called Riffmarket.

I really couldn't tell: was the sprawling desperate-for-an editor structure of that Riffmarket thing meant to be a commentary on the bizarrely insightful Hipster Runoff post that it was attacking?

That's Nick Sylvester. He used to write for the Village Voice, and Pitchfork before that. He ran into some trouble about three years ago for writing a fictionalized story for the Voice, lost both gigs. Good writer and reviewer, though -- I used to read Riff Raff, his now defunct blog.

I'm with Josh; I was going to suggest you JV so youcould find him an editor.

Ha. I went to school with Nick. The internet is a tiny tiny place.
