Blender Magazine Goes Under
Well this shouldn't really come as a shocker, but Blender Magazine has closed its doors. With huge newspapers like the New York Times struggling to survive, it's no wonder that a magazine like Blender had to shut down. Alpha Media Group has let go of everyone except for editor-in-chief Joe Levy, who will continue to work with Maxim Magazine, Alpha Media's premier magazine. Blender was a great mag, it mixed music and sex super well. Although the cover's often featured promiscuously dressed young superstars, the musical content within was quality. Blender pushed new bands, and had some primo articles on great bands. Hopefully we will see Blender resurface in the not-to-distant future.
