Rexie! The nerdy Midwestern micro-celebrity "expert" and blogger who allegedly makes Tumblr girls (and the HuffPo's Rachel Sklar) weak in the knees has inexplicably grabbed yet another bit of micro-fame—he's in some b-roll for the local news in St. Paul, outside the Daily Show. What does the voice-over say about him? Just wait. (Bonus footage: the redhead is former Wonkette editor Anna Marie Cox.)
Vanity Fair's increasingly lively web producers have put together a handy grid of the world's blogs arranged by newsiness (the y-axis) and scurrilousness (the x-axis). Gawker and sister gossip site Defamer are positioned-thankfully-at the far left of the matrix. The full-size chart has clickable icons which link through to the featured site.
