I was digging up a few links to old Cosmik Debris articles (see the And page above) when I came across this link to Consumable Online’s last publication. Consumable was one of the first, if not the first, electronic magazines on the Internet featuring music and pop culture reviews. The Editor was the tireless Bob Gajarsky, and there were no bells and whistles, just text copy. There were also no advertisements, links to porn sites or RAM-chewing pop-ups. Just the facts, ma’am.
Anyway, after seven years of being the tireless Editor, Bob saw the sports cars coming along the road and decided to park the buggy by the curb for good. There’s a nice recap about the magazine’s history along with farewells from many of the regular writers. But that’s not the weird part.
Scan about halfway down the page to an article titled Why Do I Bother, which was written in 2000. Damned if that guy doesn’t share the same passion that I do. Could have sworn I said something similar just the other day.
