Listen Up, Nashville Scene

Now that Stephen Fotopulos is head of TIRCC, you’ve got an excuse to put him in next year’s swimsuit edition!

Speaking of cuties, I notice you never include any fat, sloppy blogger bitches in your summer guide.  Is it because of some kind of envious fear of the wonderfulness of my boob freckle?

Also, you might consider John Lamb, who is cute in that Roger Abramson sort of way.

Just throwing some stuff out there for the new editor to mull over.

  1. AuntB, I would not only pay to see you included. I’d offer to hold the hose pipe over you in the kiddie pool photo shoot… but only if you are Miss December. ;)

  2. YASNI all it takes to get you choked up is a nomination for the Scene’s swimsuit edition.

    Thanks, Aunt B. I should put that Roger Abramson comparison on the About page of HispanicNashville.com. :)

  3. The Scene has a new editor?

    Ha Ha, Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.

    That strikes me as being very funny. Kat, you’re killin me.

  4. No, seriously. I’m kind of out of touch when it comes to things the popular kids are doing…like reading the Scene.

    The fact that they took me off their blogroll hasn’t really endeared me to them anyway.

  5. Kat, I’m laughing because i didn’t know either, as i don’t read the Scene. I would read an alternative paper, if there wasn’t a conservative at the helm. I like Liz, quite a bit, but there seemed to be so much the paper overlooked, or only featured once, then never followed up.

    I’m also laughing because we exchanged emails a couple of times last week, she never mentioned it.

  6. As Johnny Cash once famously asked, in a different context, “alternative to what?” I don’t particularly blame Liz, who I assume has been doing the bidding of her corporate overlords all this time, but the Scene is a paper for Vandy kids with their parents’ credit cards and a certain very narrow taste in music and clothing. And seeing the staff complain about an outside editor being brought in, as if they were an anonymous corporate entity, when that’s exactly what they are and have been, makes me smile.

  7. Maybe y’all better start at least reading Jim Romanesko’s media news, even if you don’t read any local papers.

    But let’s not lose sight of the important things, like getting John Lamb in his bathing suit and onto the pages of the Scene!

    But if I don’t read any local papers, why would I give a crap about who edits them? I mean, I don’t care who the manager of Deja Vu is, either.

    Abramson first, that’s what I say.

  9. Mack —

    Hey now. My laptop briefcase thingie is kind of heavy.

    Anyway, I run an average of 30 miles a week. That should count for something, right?

  10. Same company that bought out The Scene also bought out LEO, our alt-weekly up in Louisville, a couple of months ago. First thing they did up here was to fire the managing editor as well.

  11. I believe I’d tuck a copy back,

    Just so you know, whenever I hear a man say he’ll tuck something back I always think of my, well, my drag-queen friends.

  12. Two things, folks: John Lamb *is* indisputably hot. We almost asked him to be part of our Lust List, and now I can’t remember the reason we didn’t. (I made the nomination.)

    Second, your sentiments about the Scene really warm the cockel’s of my heart. Tough crowd.

  13. Doesn’t the Village Voice halo own the Scene, the Louisville weekly, and several other alt-weeklies?

    Or was that now “previous owner”?

  14. Coble, lame ducks get stupid on their way out. It should have been “cockles,” of course. Fair criticism.

    Lynnster, no. VVM owns the Scene, but the Louisville weekly was just bought by a Nashville-based media company headed by former Scene publisher Chris Ferrell–the same company that is about to close on the City Paper, that has consumed Nashville Post and that has just launched the monthly chick mag Her. It’s called SouthComm, and there are several other smaller media properties under its umbrella.

    Media ownership is a little tough to follow these days.
