Today is Nick Denton’s 50th birthday. As you know, Denton hasn’t had the best few months. He was forced to sell Gawker Media, saw Gawker.com get shut down and had to file for bankruptcy, all because a rich man was sad.
Even today, the day of his birth, Politico reports that Denton was in bankruptcy court to see if a judge would allow him to rent his SoHo apartment for $12,500 a month.
With all this going on, we thought Denton could use some reasons to be happy today, so we’ve collected a few below. Happy birthday, Nick. Turn that frown upside-down.
REASONS TO BE HAPPY
- The weather should start getting a little cooler soon.
- Univision is paying you $16,666 a month for the next two years in exchange for not working for any competitors.
- Kristaps Porzingis.
- 50 years young!
- Mr. Robot is a pretty good show.
- Ice cream.
- Hulk Hogan is still a moron.
