Everyone likes a sweet deal and everyone and their grandma likes a sweet deal on their terms. Paste Magazine billed as “Signs of Life in Music Film and Culture” is letting you pay what you want for a year long subscription.
This subscription not only lets you get a magazine monthly, but it comes with a CD every month. 11 CDs, 11 songs, thats about 220 songs, for as little as $1. And if it sucks, well, then its just something more to add to the recycling bin. If its great, there you go.
The website is promising. Each section has recent stories that I haven’t heard about, but are interesting–always a good thing. Topics include: What song would you like to play in a Guitar Hero Sequel?, Disney Land on 5 bucks, Justice League film, free listens to the New Pornographer‘s very good CD The Challengers, a review of the intriguing One Hundred and Forty Five Stories in a Small Box, and a lot of indie stuff. Oh, and theres a video game section. Gross.
Check out the magazine, be generous, and if you hate it, remember: reduce, reuse recycle!
