Save Paste Magazine

Posted :: May 13, 2009 | 12:13 pm ::

Decatur-based, Paste Magazine, saddled with the same sort of dwindling ad sales that sank fellow national mag Blender, is on its last legs, trying to scrounge up enough money to put out the next issue.

The magazine will launch a “Save Paste” campaign later today, appealing to readers to donate money in exchange for exclusive music from a variety of bands.

    Alas, it's not in the dying or the saving, it's in the re-creation. One must assume that will occur in the digital realm, if it's to occur at all.
