Bullshit Book Party

stanley_bing_book_party_061406.jpgYes, it was our own party, but we were nevertheless impressed by the luminaries gathered at the 100 Bullshit Jobs and How to Get Them book launch last night at Manahatta.

Author Stanley Bing brought along an entourage, including his alterego — CBS spokesperson Gil Schwartz — co-worker Shannon Jacobs, frequent Michael’s luncher and Bullshit editor David Hirshey, Harper Collins chief Joe Tessitore, Harper Collins business imprint head Marion Maneker, Schwartz’ daughter Nina of Simon and Schuster, business editor and reporter Joe Nocera, coloringthenews.com author Bill McGowan, Eat the Press‘s Rachel Sklar, and someone who told us that Commercial Property News is not only regularly on the phone with Donald Trump but also is the fourth richest publication in the VNU empire.

No speeches, plenty of bullsh*tting, mojitos, signed books and the line forming for Sonic Youth’s gig at CBGB’s across the street.
