Spiers' Launches New Site

Elizabeth Spiers' The Gloss, which Peter Feld reviews in GuestofaGuest today:

When Spiers described her earlier idea for an online "Maxim for women, Women's Wear Daily noted comparisons to Gawker Media women's site Jezebel (where that story's writer, Irin Carmon, now works). However, The Gloss feels quite different from Jezebel. It's female-positive, for sure, but without the overtly feminist voice often found in Jezebel. (Spiers' "Maxim" concept was intended to cater to the female id and the female ego.")

New York's okay if you like saxophones a women's site catering to your ego where the only dude is Michael Orell. --DG


I already don't understand your jokes!

I've always said Fimoculous could use more refernces to LA Hardcore.

Well that and references to Michael Orell, of course.

For your edification, Rex:

That joke I get. It's name-checking you that confuses me!

Also: hey buddy, where's the launch sponsor?

Rex, Michael gets name-checked because he's still paying off his debt for this.
