My personal experience with thinly veiled media industry roman à clefs
consists of superagent Kate Lee rejecting a proposal for a thinly veiled media industry roman à clef about a person in the media industry who creates a fraudulent thinly veiled media industry roman à clef in order to sleep with his ex-girlfriend, a literary agent. Superagent Kate Lee rejected the proposal because the characters were not believable, which they were not, nor are they now as they go about their real flesh and blood lives, sans veils, all unsuspecting. (No characters were based on superagent Kate Lee in this thinly veiled media industry roman à clef. She is a consummate professional with impeccable taste.)
this is kind of obvious and asinine of me, but i have to tell you that i've been seeing a bunch of litterbox cat photoshops for awhile now. i know of other ways to tell you, but this way seems more attention getting. i'm on Tumblr too much, this one of my many accounts, but if you ever want to _______ i'm always on Summer of Megadeth under the username "6h057" and please when you do see me next time, please don't act weird
Does this turn you on y/y/n?
this is kind of weird and awkward for me, but i have to tell you that i've been having the biggest crush on you for awhile now. i don't know how else to tell you, only this way. i don't go on here a lot, this isn't even my account, but if you ever want to talk i'm always on www.dateapply.com under the username "wishfulthinker" and please when you do see me next time, please don't act weird =/
man. I like how the inherent soul-sadness of this dating site spam uses the hook “wishfulthinker”. As in, you’re a wishful thinker if you think some hot tamale is contacting you anonymously on a tumblr and directing you to their dating site profile.
I’ve seen a fair share of abortionplexes in my day, and this one is only so-so. As with any establishment I review on Yelp, though, I’m willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. After all, it just opened. There are going to be kinks that need to be worked out, that sort of thing. For now, it earns three stars.
One highlight that truly stood out to me was the “prep room.” Surprised that no one else had mentioned it in their reviews, I took a photo of some nice ladies there who had shown up for their “big day” and were readying themselves with beer bongs. What a great attitude! I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have a couple myself while waiting for the missus to finish up her business.
R u gonna use that dope ass tumblr moneys to pay the freelancers you’ve been dicking over for a year or what, dud? Or is that considered “sharing” ur precious moneys?? Answer in 140 words or less.
No offense taken! I like joeks, even joeks like U. Truthfully I’m still not happy with the rapidity of paying off the freelancers we owe but it’s something I work on every day of my miserable life. We’ve certainly made a lot more progress on it in the past year than anyone had here in the previous five or ten or fifteen years, which is also no excuse of course. $35k in checks went out this past month in fact. As always, any freelancers not getting a response about payments from elsewhere in BlackBook should email me directly at cmohney at blackbookmag dot com.
Have any of you subscribed to a magazine because they have a Tumblr blog?
Hey Noah Davis at Business Insider, I’m a let you finish, but just FYI BlackBook has actually sold magazine subscriptions directly through Tumblr — once through Gilt, and more recently, via our own devices because why should we share our precious moneys. So I’d say we, at least, can actually kind of prove it? Also, far as I know, we’re the only one to actually sell an ad campaign via a Tumblr-based campaign a la Ann Taylor’s Art She Said? Plus our magazine Tumblr predates all the ones mentioned in your article, but that’s cool, I know Vogue needs some more attention and stuff.
“It’s what I call the new C word — content,” said Monocle editor Tyler Brûlé, over the phone from the garden at his offices in London on Friday afternoon (“Leave the wine on the table,” he said to somebody nearby).”—My self-destructive love for Tyler Brûlé just took on a new pansexual dimension. LEAVE THE WINE ON THE TABLE I WANT TO SAY TO SOMEBODY NEARBY.
