Aw, damn! I liked Blender, despite its icky habit of having Maxim-esque covers.

I didn't realize it had been started by someone from Q magazine. I hope another magazine gives Rob Sheffield a job - his recent(ish) column has been the best thing in that magazine in every issue it appeared.

I have a subscription, didn't know anything about this.

I'll admit though, I was way overdue wanting to discontinue it but I was waiting until after all the initial NLOTH publicity to see if they would do anything good there. Oh well.

That happened with Premiere as well. I heard about the magazine folding somewhere online and never got another issue.

That's what they get for talking about Mercy and subjecting us to 4+ years of agony.

Yeah, a good number of years ago.

No wonder I haven't seen it sold anywhere for a while I used to like that one though.

Dammit. I had a free subscription and I liked reading it almost cover to cover.

And I just sent out an application for an internship to Blender last week. Well, there goes that idea. Hopefully not many more magazines will fold.
