Elsewhere on mediabistro.com: Commie Girls and Olsen Twins

schoenkopftexas.jpgFormer OC Weekly columnist Rebecca Schoenkopf chats with FishbowlLA blogger Mayrav Saar about Commie Girl in the O.C., the collection of articles Verso is publishing this summer, and how it was born of necessity:

“I quit my job, and I was lying on my bed in the sunshine for two weeks. I was utterly bone-deep relaxed. I was lying around watching my ass grow, and I loved it. After two weeks, my mom called and started bitching at me and telling me I need to get a job. So I went back, and of course I didn’t keep my clips, so I had to copy and paste everything from the Web site.”

Now that the book’s done, says Schoenkopf, “I am still looking for jobs… Hopefully, I can be the editor of my own paper somewhere.” Meanwhile, UnBeige, mediabistro.com’s design blog finds something to look forward to from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen‘s Influence: It’s going to be designed by Rodrigo Corral, whose most famous jackets include A Million Little Pieces, The Subject Steve, and a bunch of Chuck Palahniuk novels.
