Gawker Launches Idolator Blog

There is a new blog among the Gawker brethren. It is called Idolator. It has a site design and logo that cost several more dollars than ours, but don’t hold that against them. After all, who doesn’t love jewels on poki-stick pink? Sibling rivalry aside, Idolator will definitely be about music in the same fashion that Defamer is about cinematography. That’s not a diss. HQ says, “Idolator is focused on the digital music space and the bands who rise and fall in it — the universes of iTunes, MySpace, and Hype Machine — rather than, say, the world of tourdates.”

A&R reps, promoters and tour bus tailpipe suckers of all ages, your reaper most grim has a love ballad written just for you.

Go forth and enjoy Idolator!

    I can truly find no joy in that pile of crap. I read the Gawker blogs because they are (usually) the best in their class but music blogs always strike me as biased and pointless.

    and from the Idolator blog?

    Oh well, keep trying.
