The greatest magazine of 2005*, dead in 2009

Posted By on Thu, Mar 26, 2009 at 12:06 PM

Blender, the music-focused sister pub of Maxim, is the latest magazine to die in The Year That All the Magazines Died.

It's the first magazine that I subscribe to fold. I'm a bit bummed. It was pretty good. Snarky, irreverent and incisive — at least in the pithy review section. Joe Levy, the longtime music editor of Rolling Stone, took over as editor early last year and brought all the writers that had previously made RS marginally readable (now, it's the foggie-est, most self-important jumble of doo-doo around).

Levy's now onto helm Maxim. Yikes.

*The link's dead now, but apparently, the Chicago Tribune named it the best in 2005.
