Blender was...not a very good magazine. They didn't really break any new ground, establish any new stars, or recommend any good music in general. They doted on Coldplay, Fall Out Boy, Avril, and (the) Black Eyed Peas more than any self-respecting publication really should.

But dammit, if you needed a top X list to argue about on a monthly basis, they were THERE. Top 250 songs since I was born? Top 100 songs from mid-March 2003? DONE. Top ten performances in the remake of Moulin Rouge? THEY WERE THERE.

So while it may not seem as big of a deal as the Christian Science Monitor going online-only, today we come to bury one more magazine or newspaper in a field that continues to evaporate before our eyes.

Sing this special song. It's just for you.
I'm just glad I don't care that much since I'm still not over EGM's death.

If anything happens to Mental Floss it's time to buy a laptop/smart phone because that's the only way I'll get any reading done.

Maxim's gone down in quality (and quantity) over the past year; I picked up a copy a couple of months back, and was amazed that it'd shrunk to about half it's original size.

A quick view of their Wikipedia article says that their sister magazine (Stuff) ceased publication in October. It's kinda sad, but at the same time, I couldn't tell the difference between Maxim and Stuff. The UK edition seemed more gadget-oriented, but here? It was like Maxim2 or whatever.

Sorry to hear about Blender; I can only imagine what's going on through the minds of the people working for their publishing company. I, for one, wasn't a huge fan of Blender (I found they didn't have enough Country content) but regardless, it's never easy to read about people losing their jobs.
