Another One Bites The Dust: Giant Mag Folds

15

Posted by Witch Hazel | Posted in Giant Magazine, Recession | Posted on 30-11-2009

Radio One’s Giant Magazine is folding…sorta.  Giant will stop printing and become a web-only publication.  Radio One bought the magazine two years ago for just $270,000.  The mag is aimed at 20-somethings (does this mean they don’t read or they’ve cut reading from the budget?  Justaskin…).  Anyway, the mag covers entertainment, celebs and fashion and has had (in my humble opinion) some of the flyest, most thinking-out-of-the-box covers.   

You’ll be able to find Giant online at GIANTlife.com, a new Web site as part of its Interactive One division.  No word though on who’ll get the ax over at Giant.  

Among their web ventures, Radio One also owns BlackPlanet (yo….that still exists?) and NewsOne. 

Damn… times are tough!

Straight from the Ungrateful Summabitch Files, there are citizens of New Orleans that are complaining about the Brad Pitt’s Make It Right, eco- houses. Lemme get this ish straight. You lost your homes, neighborhoods, and family members. Shit, was UNDER WATER– Aqua Man Stylee, Son!! Someone came in and said ‘hey not only are we gonna help you rebuild what you lost- but we’re going to do it in such a way that we aren’t ruining the earth further. And should this happen again, your home should be secure.” We will engineer a home that will RISE WITH YOUR MOTHERFLIPPIN TIDES AND FLOAT, SUCKA- FLOAT!!! Because God forbid the government – replace your levies…. (Ok here’s an idea. You guys go down to home depot and jerry rig them up with some planks and duct tape, yourselves. Since you have all the answers!- I gave you that one for free!) Now your ass is up in arms, because according to you these homes ‘don’t reflect the history of New Orleans’ Mind you, these houses are NOT in a historical district. So, which history are you trying to re-create? The one where your house was UNDERWATER, because it was not structurally correct for your terrain?! You got your FEMA check and got brand effing new, didn’t you, Son?

Tell you what, why don’t you spend less time busting caps in the ass of Bayou Classic tourists; call an all hands on deck, and come up with a way to build the neighborhoods of your dreams. You don’t like what people are giving you? Find a way to make what you want out of your homes, YOURSELVES.

Pissed Brewchie, Out!
