new york blames us for "rex and the city" [bloglove]

Today Gawker brings us [#] the New York Observer’s look inside the world of ‘blogger playboy and must-read linkblogger RexfimoculousSorgatz and his microcelebrity-climbing conquest of the particular world NYC-style, Tumblette-infused blogdating. They place the blame his Gossip Girl assisted adventures squarely in Seattle’s court:

(1)  Not to mention the blogger scene in Seattle was as sterile as the Microsoft campus where his office had been for two years.

(2) “The difference was that in Seattle there was no scene,” [Sorgatz] said. “Once you met [sex columnist] Dan Savage that was it—there weren’t a lot of people that you wanted to know. [nyo]

Seattle Freeze, there is thy sting! They almost imply that the absence of such a scene is a bad thing. But it’s entirely possible that he was just looking in all the wrong places or before putting in the required time in the city-mandated isolation chamber before jumping into it.

    Oh, Rex. We would have let you into the Secret Seattle Blogger Cabal if you’d asked.

    Wait, no, I was at that cabal meeting. We blackballed you. Sorry!

    wait, he’s blaming Seattle because he’s only interested in knowing Dan Savage? how is Seattle to blame for his interests, or lack thereof?
