Post Sarcastic Existence
Is it supposed to be funny, is it supposed to be funny because it's not funny or am I completely missing the point?

Just seen this in the latest issue, Christ, he's resorted to desperate, cringeworthy space-filling very early on in his contract.

I'm guessing this is a Merlin piece?

It's almost as cringe and sad as some of the old Sgt. D material.If Terrorizer want to do humour then just print a readers joke page.

Na,. the Term has a point. It's shit. It's a 1/2 page column in the news section given over to an "Occult comedian" (who has said he hates being a metal fan and a comedian cos he can't reference metal in his on stage stuff as no one would know what he was on about) who gets a few hundred words to write about, well, I guess, something funny. It really isn't. This month is a list of "Things That Metal People Like". It goes on for about 400 or so words and is just a list of stuff like "Old churches. Black. Gray (but only if it used to be black and is from the first tour),. Stickers. Arguing. Gas masks. Bullets. Tiny fridges. Bombs. Pool. Tentacles. Chips...."

I could go on - he does. It finishes with "Columns written by smartarses. Disagreeing with lists". Oh the sarcastic irony.

Campaign to give the column to Richie for "This Month's Metaphors" should start now. Disgrace to printed journalism.

Well, whether it is shit or not, the relish on here for finding stuff in the mag and scoffing at it is palpable.

Fair. As per comment in the "New Issue" thread, it's a really good issue. Reminds me of the good old days, (it's almost up to Nick Terry-era standards lol!), and this column is my only gripe this month, TBF.

i will say, a lot depends on the bands, and there were a lot of bands featured in this issue that were of interest, one way or another; for me, and that's not always the case.

Am also pleased the choice cuts has been slimmed down and makes more sense, pitching the magazine more as a professional product rather than a fanzine

Not at all, much of it gets a pretty easy ride. Steve has also said in another thread how much he enjoyed the issue, there's more relish in sharing things that impress. But being equally honest and eloquent about the weaknesses is only fair and proper, any critical organ respects that! Bottom line is, there are about 20 people on this forum alone who'd have written a better column.

No I mean't the Sarcastic Existence columns. The issue have been increasing in quality over the last 2 or 3 for sure.

No I rarely get free issues unless I ask for them. But to be honest, I prefer to pay for a copy - I figure the money helps me get paid for commissions in some round about way :-)

Sgt. D was and still is funny. Great guy.

It might have been funny if they hadn't have stolen it from SOD.
