Mark Lisanti Out at Defamer

Hot, sexy Mark Lisanti says farewell at Defamer. From the post:

In an effort to keep this short and sweet, I’ll be climbing out of the blogging hamster-wheel this Friday, and though I wish I had exciting news about where my next paycheck will be coming from (or some great story about why I’m leaving other than “it’s time”), I’ll probably just be taking a little hiatus to figure out what’s next and work on some projects I haven’t had the time or energy for since, oh, mid 2004: writing that might not involve typing in a tiny box in a browser window, eating the occasional lunch, spending lazy afternoons standing in front of the Chinese Theater in a loose-fitting Power Ranger costume, shaking down tourists for money.
