On that Jewel post, one of you commented “Funny how Spin and RS look more and more like Blender every year.”
So that inspired me to do something I was planning to do when I first got the June issues in the mail: scan the covers. (I hate scanning things.)
Can you say Separated At Birth? Of course the insides are the same too — slanted red and yellow text in easily digestible blurbs, blogger mugshots (Blender: Perez Hilton, Spin: Ultragrrrl), and 3-star Pearl Jam CD reviews that reference Ticketmaster and conclude with “DOWNLOAD: ‘Parachutes'” — but you’ll have to take my word for it. I hate scanning things.
As for former (?) Spin EIC Andy Pemberton, Gawker’s still stalking him.
Does anyone still read music magazines? Which ones?
