    I had a religious subscription to Rolling Stone for the better part of two decades. It was when idiotic cover features like this one started to become more the norm that I opted to not renew. Kudos to them for finally having Rush on the cover of the current issue. To follow it up with this though…

    All, they do is post fan shot youtube videos from concerts. It really is more sad than anything else. Some fan thinks it is an honour when RS do that and all it is laziness on the mags part.

    This is heartbreaking on so many levels. The Music Industry has taken a hit, and so has feminism. And so has the intellect of humanity. We are doomed. Idiocracy is becoming less a satirical film and more a reality documentary.
