links: Time Magazine – Then vs. Now.

A very interesting piece by Mike Johnston of the Online Photographer comparing Time Magazine circa 1968 with Time Magazine today.

He hits the nail on the head on the reasons I stopped reading Time/Newsweek and started (sorta) reading The Economist (albeit online).

He also posted another piece that is definitely worth the price of admission, Never meet your heroes, a take on why people important to you never turn out just the way your expected.

AOB:

+ Snow White and Prince Charming four years on.

+ The Onion seems almost prescient in their work: they post this piece on The Supreme Court allowing corporations to run for office and 3 days later, we see Murray Corp. run for office. Makes me wonder if they know when this boycott will end?

+ Finally, every back issue of Fader Magazine. The ones that have ‘.pdf’ link under the image can be downloaded – I think thats every issue starting July/August 2006’s issue #39.

    I loved these links. It’s probably good advice to never meet your heroes, but I still have a list of people I’d like to meet. It is very true that the work is not a portal into the artist, the work stands alone.

    Never meet your heroes! So true especially now that you can friend them on facebook. Most of my heroes are turning out to be people I would pick a fight with if the watered at my local.
