What a peculiar outlook on life you have!

Go on..?

I judge magazines by their cover. Something that im going to read on the shitter ill take for face value. How is that peculiar?

Ill save the not taking things for face value when its something that is actually important, and is worth looking into before judging. This maybe important to you, its not to me.

Im not hating on people, the magazine and its contents - only its name. Because i think its silly, and puts me off in the first place.

It's not that - it's the randomly insulting people I don't get... it's just weird!

I have a foul mouth, and im a bit of a cunt, but i mostly mean well.

Never random either, i called the boys that ran this magazine dickheads, becuase the first impression i got from the name of thier magazine was that they would be dickheads - like Kitty says up there ^^^ Being a dickhead is cool atm.
If i insult anyone its for a reason. If i insulted Jamie the other day, it was probably only because he has a fixie.  Bad Teeth

Funny though, I had this very conversation with someone the other day, when i got thinking about it - I insult everybody around me, and most of them do it back just as much, or vice versa.
Doesn't seem that weird to me. You should hear me talk to my parents on the phone, you'd think ive got tourettes.  Laugh

Yeah but don't you differntiate between people you know and people you don't? I certainly do (although the thread I just started might not suggest so lol)

Not really, no... i treat prettymuch everyone the same way, ill call you a cunt but ive got your back, from prettymuch day dot.
Some people actually turn out to be cunts, and some of them don't, i just stop investing time into the former, but ill still cuss the latter, and well... id expect the same back and ive been getting it back for years.

 Laugh bonkers - you don't know them and they don't know you - so how can you have their back? You're just insulting them!

Well, yeah... until i meet them. I did stop insulting them earlier mind, the conversation relating to it has just carried on.  Laugh


EDIT: ...and if you think about it, by the time this thread has hit 5 pages, its going to have a couple pages of me chatting shit in the middle of it to bulk it out, so although ive cussed them, ive also done them a favour.


probably.

Seems no less Barleyite than any other magazine based around music/lifestyle tbh.

That's the thing. I've always preferred (personally) mags that are about music, and don't bother with the lifestyle bit. I want music to be covered on whether it's any good or not, rather than whether some people in oversized baseball caps (or whatever) or hyping it.

Music and lifestyle do go hand in hand for a lot of people though, and I'm obviously a freak/sad music nerd. A magazine that appealed to me would probably be hated by 99% of the music-buying public  Laugh

That's not a dig at Crack by the way. I'm sure they choose music to include based on what they're into/what they think is interesting, rather than the shifting sands of fashion.

Who's doing TRAP Magazine by the way? I have a strong desire to bore readers by pointing out how all contemporary British bass music is descended from music they don't like and/or haven't heard, and wouldn't listen to even though they should  Bad Teeth

Has anyone seen this article on Ryan and Russell Oliver in Crack.. I saw it t'other day.

perfect example of featuring slightly risque art in this graffiti saturated city. Its pretty fucking dark but definitely something new. really good article actually,  I cant decide whether the art is amazing or just disturbing but it did make me question the ethics of fashion photography.  worth looking at...

i wouldn't say that was particularly "new", but it's definitely quite interesting. 

Is it being exhibited at Spike Island at the moment?  Skim read the article and it didn't seem to say. possibly I'm just a massive spastic though.

As pointed out here:

http://www.youlovecrack.com/blog/written/

Most of this thread is unconstructive criticism and a waste of words. Crack is the best music/arts/entertainment magazine out there at the moment; as a point of comparison, it’s what NME was in the early/mid 90’s (the newspaper version) but far better and with a wider range of topics. 

They (the Crack team) started with nothing but a creative idea and have improved with every issue to produce what is the most entertaining and informing read you’re going to find for free anywhere. All of this will be lost on the haters, but it needs to be said.

Currently loving Issue No.8, find it while you can.

And no, I’m not affiliated with the magazine, I’m just a fan.

I am of the opinion that no genre should contain the prefix 'funky'. The only genre allowed to be 'funky' in any way is funk.  OMG Death Star!!!11

Quote from:  that thar blog, innit
TOO MUCH NOISE ON THE NET AND NOT ENOUGH SENSE

I love the internet; it’s great. You can pretty much find anything your heart could desire, right at your fingertips. It’s revolutionised the way that we live and how we keep in touch with friends and relatives. It’s staggering the amount of information freely available to us, from websites offering to write your dissertation, to a video of two girls doing things with ‘one cup’ that is just wrong.

There is however one problem with the ‘world-wide-inter-me-web’, in anyone can say anything they want, regardless of whether it’s right or wrong and without having to worry about the ramifications. Freedom of speech is a cornerstone of any democracy and a basic human right; unfortunately some people really should just learn to keep their opinions to themselves.

There is a lot of interesting content on the internet, unfortunately there is a hell of lot of hate there too. You could even stretch it as far as to say that the internet has contributed to the development of some thoroughly modern stereotypes. Now I’m not necessarily talking about racism, sexism or homophobia, I’m thinking more along the lines of the Being A Dickhead’s Cool video (see end of article).

The stereotyping thing is nothing new. Just look at The Breakfast Club - you had the prom queen, the brain, the jock, the punk and the loner. A little bit of tweaking and you’ve got yourself the modern version walking the streets of Bristol today: Rahs, chavs, hipsters and emos.

I’m no psychologist, but I’m guessing that our intrinsic need to label people stems from a need to better define ourselves. Being part of a group gives a person a sense of belonging, status and reputation. A stereotype is a preconceived idea about a certain type of person, the issue here is most of the time first impressions are complete bull shit.

I’m pondering all of this after being made aware of the responses to a thread about Crack Magazine on Hijack - a website promoting Bristol’s music and culture. It is certainly impressive to see the amount of response the thread got so quickly and it's at this juncture it must be noted the response was, in the most part, constructive and positive.

I say the most part as there were one or two less than glowing appraisals.

One person, imaginatively named ‘Pigsgo Oink’, started by admitting he hadn’t read a single issue of Crack. Yet he posted: “What kind of retarded pr*ck calls their magazine Crack? Erm…that’ll be the hipsters that have never been near the stuff (the drug) before.”

Is not doing crack a bad thing? He then went on to write a (clearly well informed) portrait of the two people who founded Crack:

"Come on Tarquin, Lets make a magazine and call it Crack Magazine because if we really were on crack we'd never get a magazine made..."

"Oh hooh hooh! Jonty you are clever, we're so ironic... come lets jump on our fixies, ride down to Starbucks and discuss it over a mochachino"

I'm sure i don't need to point out the pure and unadulterated prejudice prevalent in this guy's words, considering he has never met the two people in question.

And even more hilariously, another contributor to the thread jovially named 'Chunky Lover' wrote: “I assume the producers of this magazine have never been a victim of the effects of crack / cocaine and are instead in the fortunate position of being able to prey upon the sadness, misery and notoriety this drug has caused countless people both in this city and beyond …You creation is unimaginative and utterly distasteful. I can only assume you are either too desperate for attention that you can't come up with anything better or too stupid to realise that you are disgrace to this city and to journalism. Twats.”

Now that is one seriously upset person there. How do people come up with these scathing versions of people without ever having met them? It really comes down to something as simple as a name. Your name is, in effect, your own personalised brand. This is the reason that people don’t casually name their newborns Adolf or Mike - if your surname just so happens to be Hunt.

I suppose Crack is an interesting choice of name for a publication, but surely there is no underlying desire there to subconsciously promote illicit substances to Bristol’s unknowing citizens?

Constructive criticism is a good thing, I’m all for it, but there seems to be a lot of criticism here and not a lot of it is constructive in any way. It seems this is the way the internet is heading with too many voiced opinions creating one massive shouting noise that offers no clarity, substance and certainly not a lot of validity.

I went to Sexey's  Eek

I must say though, the line 'because i needed to experience the "real world" of a state school' just screams of 'Mummy and Daddy ran out of money to send me to a private school so I ended up in Bruton'.

 Laughing I should never have stopped reading this thread. That is just classic.

Quote from: Article
The internet is full of wankers saying wankery things that don't matter and will never matter. However we've decided the best way to deal with these inconsequential nonsenses is to publish an editorial on them, giving them a platform that by our own admission they in no way deserve

There's always been a dig at people who went to private school, which I've never understood. Firstly, you go to the school that your mum and dad decide on, you usually have very little say in the matter; secondly you can bet that if you had the money and the local comp wasn't up to scratch you'd send your own little offspring to one. What school you go to doesn't make you a tosser, being a tosser makes you a tosser.

Growing up in an environment full of spoiled rich wanker kids when you yourself are a spoiled rich wanker kid reinforces the notion that it is OK to be a spoiled rich wanker kid. Worst case scenario what you end up with is Gideon Osborne. And I don't care what anyone says, being Gideon osborne is not cool.

DO NOT FEED THE TROLLS  Tut Tut

I was really on the side of the magazine, but the multiple login (and blatantly lying about it), and that ridiculously pompous and precious blog post have kind of knocked me sideways. I want to support their venture but a part of me is now whispering 'tossers' to my sub-conscious  Undecided
