Gawker Media Greenlights Defamer Reboot; Ankled Exec to HelmS

Does anyone remember Beejoli Shah? She was the former GENERATE media employee whose toes were once slurped by director Quentin Tarantino after the two met at a party in The Hills a couple of years ago. The reason some of you may know this is because Beejoli sent a graphic play-by-play of the toe-coital encounter in an email to 15 of her closest CC's, including visual evidence of her nuzzling in a photo booth with QT himself, which was haphazardly forwarded and then published on many sites across the internet. The world laughed, Beejoli was fired, the world moved on. (Beejoli is still on Twitter, btw, so Follow Friday, Friendsicles.)

This, in my opinion, was a perfect Defamer post, but there was no Defamer with a proper existence at the time. Now it's about to be reanimated and I've been summoned to help with the staffing process, while serving as temporary re-founding ur-editor. I'll be spending a good majority of the next three months in Los Angeles, searching for the ideal candidates to oversee its revival. Are you interested? Great. Email me at adaulerio@gmail.com. You don't have to live in the Los Angeles area right now but be aware that should you get hired full-time, you will have to. But first, please email me a clever manifesto detailing your vision for the new Defamer: Something about undermining the PR stasi, exposing the infantile degeneracy of adderalled junior executives, neo-speakeasy-hopping with an aging Wilmer Valderrama, and a comprehensive oral history of Hollywood toe-slurping.

We'll take it from there.
