Michael Musto was laid off from the Village Voice today.
When I was in college, I saw him and former Voice fashion writer Lynn Yeager at the K Mart on Astor Place. They both looked like the last remaining vestiges of the New York I came to experience and was sorely disappointed when it was replaced by a K Mart on Astor Place. He saw me, clearly, following them around the store and stopped and smiled and waved at me because he knew that it takes a special kind of weirdo to follow journalists around a K Mart. And Michael Musto is so great because he’s a weirdo too.
Everything I do is just a shade of what I read in him.
This business is a motherfucker.
