Pictured: The future of music blogs? (Click to enlarge.) [MBV]
Add some darker colors, some random and completely illegible cursive print and a random 19th century picture of “winter in New England” and you have yourself a blogzine, my friends.
That Arcade Fire picture/headline gave me a good laugh.
I really wish I’d been around for Smash Hits‘ heyday.
Maura, saying “the future?” implies that we’re not already there.
“That Guy From Deerhunter Has A New BLOG POST”
Hah, “ZOMG look it’s BRITT DANIEL!!!” is pretty damn accurate.
The future is now: [www.absolutepunk.net]
I really want this to be a real magazine. Maybe it’s just because I’ve been waist-deep in Asthmatic Kitty releases for the past month… starting to go a bit batty.
The funny part is that Sufyawn is just as gay as any current Tiger Beat cover star.
One thing that is missing…“WIN A DATE WITH __________!!” contest
@NewHillBilly: I think “Win a date with ANY MEMBER OF BROKEN SOCIAL SCENE” would be fitting.
@NewHillBilly: Ha. Good call. “Win a date with Ezra Koenig!”
@NewHillBilly: Well, there’s always that “Win a date at IKEA with a member of Pavement!” contest…
@Michaelangelo Matos: Man, Smash Hits was the best (was there a US Smash Hits too, or are you referring to the British one?)
to a ten year old, it was the coolest music mag ever, although my switch to Select when I was thirteen made me feel so grown up.
@moomintroll: the British one. I have the book commemorating its ’80s heyday, before I was into music mags.
Whoa, backwards day for me. Awesome.
No girls with advice on how to be more like them though? It needs Jenny Lewis style tips or sommat.
@Michaelangelo Matos: I missed the heyday, I was well into the Take That/Bros/Kylie years when I was taking my pocket money to the newsagents. I did love the fact that although they were a teeny bopper magazine by the time I was ten, they had a good mix of decent bands. I thought I was so alternative because I liked Shakespeare’s Sister.
You’d win a date with Marnie Stern, obvs.
Needs to be a gallisticle.
@Silverfuture: Her or Jenny Conlee of the Decemberists. Or Shonna Tucker of Drive-By Truckers. Or 3/7 of Los Campesinos!
@MayhemintheHood: He’s hit the mainstream already:
O, wait, Salon isn’t the mainstream. My mistake.
