kind of like lucky charms, but the cereal is in the shape of pound, dollar, yen and euro signs. If you collect enough tokens from the box, you can send off for one of those horrible blazers that bankers wear.
Post Of The Day goes to you, good sir!
well, minus the blazer. they would taste like golden nuggets.
of the nme i always think of this:
the paperboy from spaced singing?!!
although it must be said that i preferred colon's earlier stuff.
"WHAT TO WEAR" section deserves certain death.
and i was just working on the six month figures, yearly sounds worse.
the website and channel are doing well :( expending the brand, not good.
at work with the crossword, and man it's difficult now. I think this must be the reason for the slump. Also they can't be covering 'poogaze' enough.
it when they give away free stuff on the cover and I got it when Beth Ditto was in the altogether on the cover.
I remember it when it was all trees and meant something.
He was looking stressed and checking his phone a lot.
doing another series of Scrubs?
i actually think nme radio is pretty good. has a varied playlist of old and new. Nowhere else except 6music would you hear Spaceman 3 or the Dead Kennedy's next to Mystery Jets.
The tv channel isn't too bad either, not great but not disgraceful. The magazine is terrible though.
I hope kerrang goes under, i've had a healthy hatred of it since my early teens.
and Blah Blah Blah,
and Sleaze (post-sleazenation version only).
Anyone remember a magazine from the mid 90s called "The Zine"?. Had some short stories, some poetry, some artwork etc...?
It's just The Prayer on repeat play, isn't it? I last watched it when i was at home over Christmas, and i swear to god it came on every fourth video.
sounds like a traditional Cockney folk song.
The minute we knew Errors was going to be at the Joiners I entered the gig on the website, then I set a reminder in my calender at work to re-do it every 5 days. Still they don't include it in today's listings.
It's a fucking disgrace.
Looks like weekly titles are suffering the most though. It's that or the fact that NME and K! are 90% dire these days.
they've got their fingers in so many pies they're probably still in good shape. u.s. excursions etc.
quite a good article:
also, anyone catch the last awards show? if it got any less rowdy a funeral would have broken out
"Since the invention of youth culture in the 1960s, each generation of British teenagers has grown up feeling that they owned NME and the bands inside. It is a fairly intense and obsessive relationship that tends to end with a messy split over musical differences around the age of 25. Former readers then become like embittered ex-spouses, forever recalling a rose-tinted Golden Age of rock journalism."
What they missed was the bit about how those/us peeps end up on DiS. Having a good bitch. :-)
as was melody maker, in that grey area between britpop and the strokes. peaked around around 1999/2000 when they were putting primal scream (xtrmntr era), asian dub foundation, the beta band and godspeed on their covers
but you cant win em all
someone described it as heat magazine for indie kids.
The magazine part will disappear completely within 3-5 years and it will continue online and via putting it's name on shitty indie clubs and clothing.
An "Indie-heat shitrag" was how I heard it described.
Still got a 3 foot high pile of 'em from the 90s that I'll probably end up charity shopping or fleabaying.
It's still an extremely popular publication whether you like it or not. Not everyone will scrutinise the level of journalism if the NME is writing about the artists/bands they are interested in...
Conor McCunt or whatever his name is will be fired as he is shiiiiiiiiiiiit.
that specialise in new music, as opposed to continual reassessments of 'classics' from the past, will very largely disappear.
With the internet, you don't just get to read about a band, you get to see, hear and maybe interact with them them too. 'NME' will be a website that allows people to do this - they won't need a paper equivalent.
Kerrang down 27.1%
because it's shit.
