Mongrel. RIP.

This is the cover of the very last copy of Mongrel Magazine:



A sad time folks. Despite my very real grief, I now present you with my epitaph for the publication. Composed in the idiom of their famous music reviews:

86%

Mongrel Magazine.
Mongrel Press Ltd.

Oh, the merriment. A bunch of Trinners types with delightfully pointless humanities degrees - probably - decide to festoon their witticisms and scorns upon Joe Public. Whoever the fuck he is. They nestle ironic editorials and willfully obscure slices of investigative journalism into a carefully manicured hedgerow of hipster ads. Who cares if the shops aren't even to be found in the country? Get with the times you square. Get the in-jokes too, or expose yourself as a retrograde culchie with damp turf for teeth. Where's your keffiyah, Snack Box? This really should be an annoying pile of shite. Trouble is, the writers are brilliantly funny. And namedropping it makes you cool... Bastards.
Cav.

The cur is dead! Long live State!

I enjoy a lot when saw an investigative journalism because is a very dangerous job and they have to work and many hours.
I think that the blog is very important and so funny.

One of the reasons why I like visiting your blog so much is because it has become a daily reference I can use in order to learn new nice stuff. It's like a curiosities box that surprises you over and over again.
