So Long and Thanks For All the Fish… BowlLA!

I was offered a gig as managing editor of the award-winning mega-blog Crooks and Liars and I’ve decided to take it. Regrettably, this means I will not have the time to blog here any longer. So because I’ve been an editor at FishbowlLA for over three years–the longest I’ve ever worked anywhere (I am a freelancer)–I wanted to pen my own exit interview:

Q. What is the weirdest thing to happen to you at FishbowlLA?

A. Remember the Mini Me sex tape? Vern Troyer had this tape leaked of he and his girlfriend going at it. The girlfriend just so happened to look a lot like my co-editor at the time, Mayrav Saar. So I thought it would be hilarious (it was) to write a post with the image saying, “We just wanted to get in front of this – this is NOT Mayrav in the Mini Me sex tape.” The next day we got a cease and desist letter from Troyer’s lawyers telling us to take down the image. So the weirdest? A cease and desist from Mini Me’s attorney over an in-office joke.

See my response to the lawyer here.
