Everything I ever said has come true and everything I've done has been right.
Yesterday, Vox ran an article on (Rap) Genius that more or less echoes what I wrote in my article on Medium on Monday, this despite the fact that my article was mostly based on speculation and I was kinda drunk and under the weather when I wrote it.
In short, (Rap) Genius is growing increasingly desperate, and that's why they hired/purchased Sasha Frere-Jones away from the New Yorker. They don't appear to have a plan to make money other than soliciting for investments from venture capitalists and no one wants to use their embeddable annotations, which have been around for like a year now.
In response, a supposedly upset Mahbod Moghadam fired off the following email.
I haven't eaten at McDonald's on a regular basis since I was in my late 20s, mostly because it ends up being more expensive than you'd think, if your financial situation isn't as strong as it should be, definitely more expensive than it should be, for what it is, but I still fuxwit it heavy. I grew up on the Big Mac (if it wasn't already clear), and then as an adult I discovered the magic of the McNugget, which I suspect tastes better now than I remember it from back in like '83, when they were giving out those free ET records on 45, probably the first record I ever owned. #FYI
I mostly took this to mean that she's gonna give celebs a chance to cut her a (second) check before she puts them on blast in this book. If it comes with a boink -- which it should, really -- that would be a pretty good deal, this could turn out to be a lucrative venture, especially compared to what pr0n pays these days.
