Layoffs Hit Condé Nast

We figured layoffs were coming when Condé Nast asked their titles to make budget cutbacks, and now they’re starting to happen.

There have been several cuts across a few Condé Nast titles. The New York Post reports eight staffers from Self and Susan Portnoy, vice president of corporate communications for the past seven years, were cut.

Additionally, Logan Hill from GQ was let go. “Budget cuts got me,” tweeted Hill. “Loved my colleagues at GQ and the magazine, but now I’m a freelance writer.”

There are also expected to be cuts at Glamour and Fairchild Fashion Media.

Dave Eggers Interview with New York Mag

wildside090831_2_198.jpgGo on and read the whole interview by Logan Hill…it’s worth it.

We like how Dave Eggers got the gig. It’s every fanboy’s ultimate fantasy:

How did you hook up with Spike Jonze?

I wrote him a fan letter for Being John Malkovich. And I was a longtime worshipper of Maurice. I grew up wanting to be a writer and illustrator of children’s books – I still have a lot of books I did as a kid. So it was a ridiculous combination: I was a fanboy of both.

Proof flattery will get you everywhere.

Sundance News: Worst, Kinkiest, Best–Take Your Pick

FBLA knows that even if our readers can’t go to Sundance, you still need to be able spout all the gossip/conventional wisdom/buzz about the offerings. So, we’ve rounded up the best–feel free to pass off any cogent remarks as your own.

Sundance 2007
David Poland says it’s the worst ever. Logan Hill makes a case for kinkiest.

Grace is Gone seems to be the biggest hit thus far, which isn’t saying much. The Weinsteins have picked up this homespun drama, starring John Cusack as a family man whose wife gets killed in action in Iraq.

The Hollywood Reporter thinks Savages from Tamara Jenkins is the festival hit. Laura Linney and Philip Seymour Hoffman turn in strong performances as siblings taking care of their aging father.

Hounddog, aka the Dakota Fanning rape project, got a lot of pre-festival press. Audience reactions remain to be seen.

Richard Corliss, writing in Time, confirms what the rest of us think: Sundance movies are their own genre.

The program is heavy with earnest studies of emotional accommodation.
