I'm not one to usually jump in the middle of anything but I just had to get a few comments off my chest.
First TP is TP. I've never met him, folks tell me he's a good guy. Based on his on line persona I think he's he's an self centered, egotistical, brat that loves permit more than people but that's neither here nor there. He's gonna do what he's gonna do and nobody is going to change that, at least not through PMs and posts.
The criticism of the magazine disturbs me more. Tom just got interviewed by Forbes and we can't even let him enjoy the glow of success until after the holidays. I mean sure it's another sign that proves your point that the mag has gone mainstream but who cares. Half of us don't read the magazine (primarily because our subscription never comes), a third of us only buy the magazine to support the forums, and a third of us are just living in Tom's basement, eating his food and complaining because the meatloaf is dry.
I personally fall into the second category. Because I am wiser, smarter, thinner and better looking than the rest of you lot I am going to share this advice because it is Christmas. BUY the magazine. I don't care if you do it at Barnes and Nobles, your local fly shop or subscribe to it. JUST BUY IT. After you buy it, use it as kindling, bird cage flooring or do origami with it I don't care.
The deal is: there is more and better content HERE than you will find anywhere else. The writing, the photography, the people (oh the people) are unparalleled at this little interweb shit hole and you need to do your part to make sure it doesn't disappear.
