@Ralph Haygood I'm with Ralph please tell us Ken
The part where he makes a brochure about how all the bad parts of his novel are actually good parts and staples it together and purchases it for the British Library for 50 pence is outstanding.
@Dave Bry Mac Miller? Iggy Azalea? KREAYSHAWN? That is just from last year!
@cory dodt@twitter Her age is given in the video as "mid-twenties." Is it your belief that this woman is ten years old? I do not agree that she is ten.
I'm so glad you wrote this! Sullivan's overreaction is the weirdest overreaction!
@Matt What if you strongly dislike both Big Sean and post-Black Album Jay-Z? Wouldn't everything be better if we were just getting nice Kanye solo EPs with some Pusha T features? And maybe 2 Chainz, if things must really be padded out?
David Boreanaz isn't in this movie, Choire! You got my hopes up for nothing!
@ImThraxx Sorry for the typo, should be $37,500, not "$37,500k." Typo nonwithstanding, both numbers are complete fabrications.
Choire, you misread. McClure isn't up 300 grand in 8 years. 300 grand was his starting capital, and he took the investment proceeds from that and kept investing, and so forth. Now, in the aggregate, the money he's gotten out is apparently over 2x the money he put in. Admittedly, it is a little unclear where he stops talking about his own personal money and starts talking about 500 Startups, the (totally legit) incubator he runs.
According to Crunchbase, they're an 80 million dollar fund, which is pretty large for an angel investor org not run by Ron Conway. Take issue with the general tenor of his piece if you like, but it's hard to construe the guy as small potatoes. $37,500k a year he does not make.
@Danzig! Totally. Ricky still reliably gets his name onto sales charts. Where is Fif?
And yes, my reading is also that 50 chose deliberately soft targets, but you have to admit his timing w/r/t Ja Rule was masterful. He took advantage of a huge latent dislike of that guy.
