Indeed, they did finally do five blades. With that in mind…

Right: John Krasinski, unspeallably-named anchor of an elite team of performers in Pennsylvania.
(ALSO: John should make sure his agent is on top on any Big Ben Roethlisberger biopic news because, damn.)
Left: Pillar of virtue and advice, Dr. Drew, with his wife.
Right: Probably not Dr. Drew’s wife.
Earlier: What do Other Doctors Think of Drew?

I’ve already pointed out that February’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief is an orgy of iPhone product placement. But what else do we have to look forward to from Apple onscreen in the coming year?
HIGH School certainly looks to contain an iMac.
The Spy Next Door is a vehicle for iPod.
And, after the jump, is that a Mac in Bounty Hunter and what about Toy Story 3?
Left: Elian Gonalez, a motherless boy many enraged Americans insisted not be returned to his real father.
Right: Sean Goldman, a motherless boy many enraged Americans insisted be returned to his real father.
“I think the short answer is that writers go back because Gawker Media sites and sites modeled after them spent the bulk of this past decade systematically obviating and destroying most all of writers’ other options for regular employment. We’ll all work at Gawker one day!”
I would also hazard that the “style” needed to be a good Gawker writer just does not translate well to any other medium. Magazines do not want shallowly-researched snark. Ditto, newspapers. Meanwhile, writers for other Gawker sites like Gizmodo and Deadspin have specialized knowledge bases that translate throughout targeted industries. That is to say, A Gizmodo writer could probably easily move to PC Magazine or wherever. What is a Gawker writer’s specialized knowledge base? Media? Only for a tiny few.
Not to say that Gawker writers cannot give magazines and other media the content they want, they just don’t excel at it any more than the glut of writers out there. And once they experience that, Gawker looks like a warmplace to return to flex what they are best at.
