    Default Dear Vanessa Franko Of The LA Times

    Okay, so I have to ask, and I really don't mean this to be mean (the way I normally do) but more just because every time I open an article by you I am... jarred, let's say.

    So here goes...





    WHY THE FUCK IS A GIANT CLOSEUP OF YOUR FACE IN YOUR BYLINE?

    NOBODY BE MEAN. This is not about being mean. Which is what we would normally do. Rather, I want Ms. Franko to come in here and... just talk.

    I'm about 99% sure her editor makes that decision, not her. You should be asking the editor of her section. Usually writers have absolutely no control over the layout and design. That's the art department, and all final decisions go through the editor of the section.

    Vanessa, is your editor some cruel prankster who has a grudge against your moon face?

    More importantly, what chimp with access to photoshop would intentionally make a header that hideous? And why the fuck are they still on the LA Times payroll when there are a million perfectly competent graphic designers within a 30-mile radius?

    Yeah seriously. Like, I'm not blaming Vanessa at all, in fact I feel like she's being wronged here because she's a pretty decent music journalist who covers Coachella well enough to not piss me off. But what the fuck is the story with that horrible graphic (it's not horrible because of you Vanessa, it's just a horrible graphic).

    Also, if you would like to go out for moon pies and talk music and journalism sometime, I'm down, Vanessa.

    I believe the dude who should be the focus of your wrath should be Graphics Editor Les Dunseith. Feel free to e-mail him hate mail.

    Oh jesus, he's a graphic design professor at USC when he's not working at the LA Times. That's terrifying. Pity the youth.

    Randy just something that could be construed as being positive about a writer who isn't in possession of a cock.

    I'm not entirely certain her content is from the LA Times, from Randy's link posted above. Perhaps the LA Times is just syndicating content from other sources.

    You have a good point. Although I think the funnier scenario would be if Vanessa punched Supre.


    Clearly, the only logical response is to make a fake gmail account with Supre's picture and start harassing this chick a lot.

    She's picked up a little weight since being on Rosanne.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
