Au Revoir, Simone!


Well well well, as someone whose name I can't be bothered to look up on Google once said, "All good things must come to an end." And so, after some sixteen months as your pop cultural cruise director aboard the good ship Vulture, it's time for me to bid a fond adieu (for now). I'm not much for mushy good-byes, but I would like to take a quick second to thank a few people before I sign off. First, my sincere thanks goes out to the members of the immediate Vulture team — "Uptown" Lane Brown, Amos Barshad, Nick Catucci, Ben Williams, Josh Wolk, and Edith Zimmerman — for being such a supportive, hilarious, intelligent, and delightful group to work with each and every day. I'd also like to thank Ben Silverman for being pretty much the most awesome person ever to walk the face of the Earth; please come back to public life soon! And lastly, I would like to thank you, the loyal Vulture reader, for consistently engaging with (and hopefully mostly enjoying!) the material that I have written for this site. So, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go grab myself a McFlurry before hitting the gym, going tanning, and doing some much-needed laundry.

Oh, and if for any reason you'd like to keep up with my post-Vulture antics, you can follow me on Twitter and Tumblr.

Yours always,
"Juice" Springsteen
