An “article”:http://www.nwanews.com/adg/story_Style.php?storyid=38705 at the “Arkansas Democrat-Gazette”:http://www.nwanews.com (yes, that’s what I said) discusses fair and balanced alternatives for your music magazine fix after your “Rolling Stone”:http://www.rollingstone.com subscription expires. I would have let mine expire years ago but somehow I was on a four-year sub that is just now about to end. I don’t agree with the writers distaste of the unclad and sexed-up status (but I agree with overhyped and they may be undertalented, but their producers rock) of Britney, … Justin, Christina, … Eminem, [and] Madonna but I do agree that I can’t be bothered to listen to Whitney, J-Lo, … Mariah, and Celine. Either way, though, Rolling Stone has become “US Weekly”:http://www.usmagazine.com/ for music and I think music is too personal a choice to get bogged down in the personal lives of the artists. (While mass-market TV and movies are generally so-much-candy and I love the weekly gossip in my US and Entertainment Weekly subscriptions.) Summarily, he’s got a good list of mags (and I have heard people I respect say that you should buy every copy of “Oxford American”:http://www.oxfordamericanmag.com’s CD that you can lay your hands on — escpecially now that they’ve “suspended publication”:http://www.usatoday.com/life/2003-07-16-oxford-american_x.htm) but he should have thrown “CMJ”:http://www.cmj.com/ in there. It’s a good price for 12 CDs of stuff that will be on the ‘alternative’ radio next month.

Hopefully I was one of those people recommending the OA.

I’m pretty bummed they’re suspending publication AGAIN. It’s another sign of southern culture on the skids.
