Rolling Stone gets a little nip-tuck
Yes ladies and gentlemen, the popular music publication, Rolling Stone Magazine is going under the knife and getting a face lift--or maybe it can be considered a breast reduction?
For over 40 years the magazine has been notorious for it's over sized pages and stapled end binding. Beginning October 17 2008, RS will standardize it's look, resorting to the standard magazine size paper and glossy, flat edge binding--yawn.
We here at Barricade Buzz are wondering how the change will affect the magazine's sales. Obviously we're going to continue to read, but we know we're definitely going to miss the jumbo size covers to pin up on the walls.
