State Magazine. Sweet.


Having spent the weekend sporadically delving into the new Irish musical payload that is State Magazine, I would like to take this opportunity to offer a "bloody good show" to all concerned... A fresh and clean design, smells lovely too... An eclectic range of content, offering insights into the REMs of this world as well as the !Kaboogies... And most importantly of all, a talented and engaging pack of scribes.

I await the second issue with considerable interest. Until then, I shall make do with the second State podcast. Starring Choice winners Super Extra Bonus Party, a click forth would be quite worthwhile.

As is this fantastic blog, the Dalston Oxfam Shop. It is a treasure trove of nostalgia, bygone cool and kitsch. It is a library of old cassette tapes found on the dusty shelves of charity shops. The nuggets are numerous. And all available for download... The requisite hat tip must go to Nialler and his exceedingly high Blog Standard buzz.

Sweet find dude.

good to know I'm not the only person who likes the smell of fresh print

MyTopFive: Been that way ever since I opened my first Ann & Barry... Ah, sweet memories.

For come-on's sake Cavs, it was only a few short days ago you were sitting in your darkened bedroom sobbing over Mongrel, and how great it could been if it had just stayed.

Now you've spotted a new mag, and you're diving in head first, without a second thought for your former sweet-heart. Don't expect any pity from me when this one goes under, or puts Fallout Boy on the front cover.

Frailty, thy name is hipster.

Slurkid: Cynicism, thy name is Slurkid.

Hey, I just gotta be me.

Slurkid: And we wouldn't have you any other way chief... Well, perhaps if we could swap your left arm for a laser guided surface to air missile launcher of some description... That would be cool.

That would be class. If I were a heavily armed, near indestructible cyborg, then I might start getting some respect around here.
