What are you guys doing Friday night? Well, Ned and I are going to TAKE BACK THE INTERNET. Gessen has put down his sword and picked up a 40 oz in the name of The Most Important Literary Fight Of Our Time and invited everyone to the n+1 offices to - I'm assuming - get drunk and engage in some intense verbal sparring. The event is in Brooklyn =/ but I'm picturing an open bar and pretty literary boys reading galleys, so I will suck up my hatred for the F train and head on over there. It's time I put to bed my existential funk concerning Gawker vs. n+1. I kind of just want everyone to put aside their bitching and affection for erudition and get drunk and get creative. Am I asking too much?
