Hug a Rock Critic II: Vibe Has Folded

Hug a Rock Critic II: Vibe Has Folded

Vibe magazine, 1993-2009. As with Blender's demise (just with more history), this puts a ton of talented folks either out of work (occasional Voice contributor Sean Fennessey springs immediately to mind) or in an even worse bind from a freelancer's perspective. In happier times, Vibe supplied my favorite reocurring American Idol coverage scheme: Sean and Jon Caramanica sassing each other on IM.

"So who's left?" my editor just asked, and it took me an uncomfortably long time to come up with the music mags that remain, and an uncomfortably short amount of time to name them.
