'The first issue of the music magazine, which was linked with Channel 4's Popworld show, had an initial print run of 130,000 copies but sold just 9,000.'
i saw it looking forlorn on news stands and thought it looked shit. trudat.
and also WHY?
buy Smash Hits and TOTP Magazine. Thought I'd give it a go
you have a fan/stalker
You've got me anyhoo, seeing as I copy all your childhood memories.
on both counts.
i'm going to go buy one
i'm going to sell it on ebay.
I've never heard of it.
neither did the rest of the country apparently
MEANS NOTHING TO US. I like living in this bubble.
and I'm no bubble boy.
Welcome to the bubble! Join us, it's cosy in here! We have typewriters and a clockwork radio!
I bet the viewing figures for the show have dropped considerably now those 2 planks are presenting it.
but that's thank to the retarded way we've all acted post-911 probably - but.........maybe its aimed at 13 year olds but as none of us can grow up they target 'us' as well?
for having found a way to link this magazine's misfortune to 9/11.
In general never mind one based on the most annoying show on T.V with the two most annoying, unfunny twats in history presenting it
10 of the magazine's 14 staff have been made redundant?
so 4 people are going to carry on picking up a wage for doing nothing? I bet it was the 4 people who came up with the stupid idea in the first place and the 10 people who busted a gut getting it all written, subbed and laid out got shown the door
this is wild speculation by the way
I COULDN'T CARE LESS - other than the fact that it's heartening to see people failing miserably - natch
Magazines aren't dead - you just need a credible rival to NME and everything will follow - you just need to rethink the format and try to outwit current trends and then you'll be bigger than erm....Popworld Pulp?
as it wasn't a hit straight away it was dashed against the wall - that comments more loudly on our musical times than any other act of petulance ever.
and it was actually ok. By which, I mean it was what NME will surely become within the next couple of years (if its current trajectory continues unchecked), but without any pretensions of being anything other than a Pop magazine.
I bought issues 1 AND 2. They might be worth something one day. Were it not for the fact that I've scrawled "DIE" on Pete Wentz's face in permanent marker on the cover of issue 2.
presumably they'll just be reassigned elsewhere.
back to the call centres where they belong, and good.
Bet the guys at the pulping plant have a hearty chuckle while they get on with destroying the leftovers.
(from l-r) The baddie from the Incredibles, Simon Amstell's even gayer little brother and Beast from Disney's Beauty and the Beast?
He'll respond to my PMs now......
good fickle talking point.
She's got enough on her plate with old Ben Elton's scripts.
