Defamer Hiring

helpwanted si.jpegWith the news that Mark Lisanti is leaving that swampy hole of self-hatred that is Defamer, the site is advertising for his old gig:

“Specifically, we are looking to hire a small handful of talented writers, of either the aspiring or proven variety, who have the ability to cut a unique swath through all of the tired bullshit and who can consistently deliver insightful and entertaining pieces about the accursed industry that consumes our souls when it isn’t already claiming our firstborn. Ideal candidates will have strong, original voices as well as a close familiarity with the machinations that make Hollywood and the culture of celebrity go ’round.”

It kinda sounds dreadful. But they’re forking up benefits and an actual salary, so who are we to snipe?
