This one even we saw coming. On the heels of Spin’s rather unspectacular
sale to Hartle Media, and yesterday’s shuffling of the editorial decks, famed essayist and Spin writer Chuck Klosterman has decided to pack it up. Our source confirms a tip we recieved earlier in the day that the author
of Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs and Killing Yourself to Live: 85% of a True Story was cleaning out his desk today.

You’re probably as shocked as I am. Chuck had a desk?

That said, Spin’s loss is undoubtedly some other smart magazine’s gain. Surely there is another widely distributed glossy whose readers are dying to be schooled in why Bobby Blotzer has done more for our culture than Alex Chilton.
