Hi everyone. Just wanted to let you know that today is my last day as editor of Idolator. The site will continue on, and I will continue to write about music, but we’ve decided to part ways. Despite my nominal status as a “writer,” I am straight-up terrible at goodbyes. So I just have a list of people to thank before I exit stage left. More »
1881, President James Garfield is fatally shot; 1937, Amelia Earhart disappears over the Pacific; 1962, the first Wal-Mart store opens in Rogers, Arkansas. More »
Hello, I’m Jess Harvell. I don’t own a home computer at the moment. I can’t “work an RSS feed.” I have never knowingly looked at Stereogum. I don’t have cable. My knowledge of pop culture these days is almost entirely down to what one of the editors of this site copies and pastes to me in IM chats. More »
Hi. I’m Michaelangelo Matos. I’ve been a regular Idolator contributor since December, when I undertook the Jackin’ Pop Critics Poll. After that I finagled a column, Project X, in which I examine a different Top 10 list every other week. It’s the most sheerly enjoyable writing I do by a mile. Today, I’m co-blogging with Maura while that deadbeat Raftery hides in the cupboard. More about me after the jump.
After months of shooting my mouth off and basically treating Idolator as my de facto blog, I, Chris “dennisobell” Molanphy, am proud to be pinch-hitting as guest editor for a day. I’m filling in for esteemed Editor Brian Raftery, who is off in an undisclosed location–let’s just say the skills he’s picked up from certain nameless American Idol contenders might come in handy. I’ll be sharing the virtual editor’s desk today with the mighty Maura, who’ll hopefully keep me from wandering off somewhere.

Eric Harvey here, taking the baton from Dan Gibson and filling in for your esteemed Idolator Brian, who, despite vicious rumors to the contrary, is not bedbound in my rural home like James Caan in Misery. Not at all. More »
With one of your Idolator editors out on a Lindsay Lohan-style break due to exhaustion, I’ll be filling in for the day, embarrassing myself and, possibly, the Idolator institution in the process. More »
