All the senior editors quit Gawker last weekend. (Frankly, since editor Alex Balk—who hired me—quit a couple of months ago, the site has become boring as piss.) So instead of waiting for them to get their shit together about whether they still want my weekly ad column, I'm offering myself up to the best bidder. My rate is very reasonable. I am looking to write for a popular media/culture/advertising site, not a shitty blog like mine. I've worked for 16 years at the same small NYC ad agency. So unlike other ad columnists, I actually, you know, MAKE ADS. I've also guest taught ad courses at the School of Visual Arts and FIT. One more thing—I would prefer a place where I can fucking curse. If you want to view writing samples, just type Lies Well Disguised in Gawker's search window. No, I'm not married to that column name.

I read in a newspaper that Gawker wants to be a legitimate news source, and not a cutesy blog thingy.

Gawker always sucked. Kind of like Gigantic Vagina & Partners advertising. Except for when they made fun of that dude from Atlanta who wears a tuxedo and berates online daters. That was kind of funny.

So the powers that be at Gawker prevented you from cursing, eh? Did they also prevent you from being witty, insightful or even moderately amusing?

I guess this means I don't get the $100 dollar prize for the LWD logo.

There goes Christmas for my babies.(SIGH)

I'd hire you, but you'd have to be willing to work for pretzels.
