Suck it, Zune! You aren't the only thing launching today! After many weeks of speculatin', Gawker finally unveiled Idolator, their new music-industry blog. Now, you'll be able to use it as s shibboleth to see who's REALLY DOWN at the Velvet Lounge and who's not:
"EYE-dull-ay-ter" = collar poppin' douchetoast
Actually, our favorite part of their first day is their description of Lockhart's travails in seeking out the right editors:
For months, Gawker Media O.G. Lockhart Steele trolled through New York's dingiest clubs and concert halls, hoping to find the rock n' roll animals wild enough to become the frontman (and/or frontwoman) for the company's new music blog.
Imagining this, we like to think that it all happened in a manner similar to the video for "Hungry Like The Wolf."
Anyway, we, for one, welcome our new musicblog overlords. At long last, SOMEONE finally had the GUTS to snark about music!
