Vulture is an entertainment blog set on "devouring culture." And like its winged namesake, there isn't a whole lot this blog won't pick apart. Vulture is the entertainment and culture blog for New York magazine. But it's hardly just a division of the magazine. In fact, Vulture has become its own stand-alone brand, considered to be one of the top entertainment blogs around, listed as number 2 in the world in that category byTechnorati.
Vulture covers not only TV, film and music, but also theater, art and books. And while the site does do its fair share of reviewing, they also conduct interviews, recap popular TV shows and provide aggregated and often breaking news from all over the entertainment industry.There's also something called an "Anticipation Index" which tracks what movies, music, etc people are talking about before their release. This is great for two reasons. One: Half the fun of talking about movies, music, really all of media, is the anticipation of your favorite author/actress/musician releasing something new. Two: This index is essentially tracking conversations. It reads like a stock market index with certain "stocks" rising and falling. In reality, entertainment properties are probably a lot like stocks. It's nice to see someone represent them that way visually as well.
But really, Vulture's all about our culture. They circle around the mass of it, looking for everything - good and bad - that appears before them on the landscape. And there doesn't seem to be anything at which they won't swoop down and take a peek.
