not a beautiful or unique snowflake


So for no apparent reason I got a copy of Blender (the magazine, not the 3d editing software) in the mail. Its superficial apparent lameness was confirmed by the images of previous covers (all in the sex-sells mode) and especially the promise that next issue will feature "SHAKIRA and the 50 SEXIEST WOMEN in music today!" (exclamation mark theirs).

This is slightly offset by the fact that on the last page they have a brief Q&A with Chrissy Hynde in which she observes, "Janis Joplin was our icon: she was considered ugly and had acne. Now, all the chicks go to movie premieres and are surgically enhanced. To me, that's the antithesis of rock & roll." Too bad Chrissy didn't just refuse to give them the time of day.
