BASH! Magazine #7 -- Final Paper Issue

I saw it yesterday, but didn't get to grab a copy until this morning at the Vienna Metro station on the way into work (the kiosks downtown were removed just prior to the Inauguration, and seemingly never made their way back) -- BASH! Magazine #7's cover says:


but, don't worry,
everything you
love and more
will be at...


The back cover says:

BASH Magazine

bash online.


website relaunches March '09

In between the covers, expect the usual collection of eclectic content, ranging from the political to the bizarre and everything in between. This issue also has a color center page, "Tragic Relief presents 'The Bridge of Magpies'" by Colleen Frakes.

While I'll miss picking up the new issue at the beginning of the month, I'm not at all surprised to see it go the way of the dodo. Whereas the first issue or two had some very limited (to my recollection) ad content, the last few have been totally bereft, and if there's a business model that exists where this approach makes financial sense, I'm unaware of it.

So tune into www.bashmagazine.com in March I guess, or just seek out the cartoonists' web sites who probably already feature much of this material!

Thanks for the mention, Randy!

So far it looks like the on-line BASH! is still going to have a lot of the same great content (and ads by Google). I'm looking forward to seeing what happens!
