Contradiction in terms

Rip & Burn – the music magazine for the download generation”

Isn’t that an oxymoron? I particularly like their “Free tunes! Downloads… coming soon”. But wahey, they’ve got a blog! With no permalinks, no trackbacks, no blogroll, virtually no content and possibly the crappest navigation I’ve seen in ages.

Come on, where’s the podcasting? Where are the enclosures? The mash-ups? The free Creative Commons content? Honestly, this blog is so pathetic, I can’t even be bothered to explain why.

Still, I suppose it’s what one should expect from Haymarket Consumer, a company which thinks that the hip young kids who rip, mix and burn are going to be out at the news stands thinking ‘My, I just can’t wait to spend some of my hard-earned cash on a magazine covering stuff I can get for free online’.

Great thinking, guys. Keep it up.
