flightless hag

A chronicle of the adventures of birdwoman: a lonely, talentless freak who wanders the internet in search of entertainment.

My Favorite Charity

I subscribe to a magazine that’s been through hell. They have a hard time getting to publication; they are in a business that’s going the way of the dodo. Yet, I continue to subscribe.

There were times when we’d go a month or more without a copy, but then, like a resuscitated heart patient, another copy would come in the mail.

What is this magazine?

College Music Journal, now called CMJ New Music Monthly.

They expose all kinds of music and they have fantastic reviews. Nothing you can’t get off iTunes these days, however. They send you a disk of about 20 new songs on a monthly, maybe bi-monthly basis. Again, the internet provides the same.

At one point, they had new publishers coming in and they were giving a presentation for better funding – September 12, 2001 was the day scheduled for that – in Windows on the World, I believe. So runs the luck of this magazine.

But they still rock. I just re-upped for 3 years, even if they’ll only be around for one. I figure it’s just as worthy as a check to some arts fund, who would just use my money to buy politicians…
