Yesterday I received an email from Paste Magazine that after about a year after ceasing production as a print magazine they have transformed themselves into what they are calling an mPlayer. I like Paste Magazine and its tagline of “Signs of Life in Music, Film & Culture”. They cover music, films and books I may be interested in but I hate reading on a computer (I know, this coming from a guy that blogs). This is why I keep my entries brief. I’m thankful for the 2 minutes you may give me and hopefully I reward you with information about an artist you might not have known previously.
Speaking as someone with a very short attention span (Cows!) I do like to focus on one thing without distractions. I know we will never go back to a time before the internet when we relied on music critics to bring back tales of life on the road or let us know about a band that was about to be huge (note to self, time to re-watch “Almost Famous”) but I do miss that time.
I did a search for CREEM, my favorite music magazine growing up and I saw this cover.
I can’t stop staring at it. First of all, this was before Photoshop so we know Robert leans to the left but just the whole layout screams Rock ‘n Roll. I want to open this up and pour through it. I can’t do that with an e-zine. Sad.
