i guess i'd rather have one of my favorite magazines transition to the web than outright die. but it's still a sad day when you can no longer grab that zine and stuff it in yr shoulder bag to read where ever.
according to tiny mix tapes, skyscraper is doing just that. the spring 2009 installment on the shelves on yr local bookstore/record shop will be the last. skyscrapermagazine.com will get an overhaul and be the new home for one of the best sources for indie rock interviews and reviews. damn i always loved the day when the new issue came in the revolver order. i guess i'll just have to bookmark them with the rest of the music sites.
the lesson here is that you have to continue to support yr favorite magazine, otherwise they will keep dying. it just doesn't have to be this way...........
(postscript, arthur magazine already went online only awhile back, rolling stone shrunk its format, and punk planet died, who's next?)
