third riff around
Nick Slyvester is back
. The recent Harvard graduate fabricated the circumstances of the final paragraph of Village Voice
cover story about a convtroversial dating guide. Consequently, his editor was fired, was fired, and Mr. Slyvester also lost his job at Pitchfork, fine purveyors of meaningful, experimental music reviews. His new blog seems to just offer straight features reports and concert reviews, probably left overs from his old (paying) gigs. It conspicuously avoids any of the satirical interviews or technicolor nuclear fireworks that made his writing read like unadulterated adderal; sugared-up lit crit kids are post-everything
and the world revolves around Tony Yayo's bucket hat, duuuude
! This is his third blog (by my count), following Riff Raff and Riff Central. The above picture comes from BrooklynVegan, and shows Nick reading a Malcolm Gladwell article instead of presenting at the Plug Awards, while a bored TV on the Radio take pictures of the Waldo lookalike. More on them later.
