A CRITICAL LOOK AT REVOLVER MAGAZINE
The “Anono-Critic” over at Idolator did a nice writeup about the history, life and times of metal-mag Revolver. It’s a pretty good look at a magazine we all read, and this kind of a meta-commentary is a welcome specialty of Idolator’s. And of course the all-important last sentence:
In a back-of book review of a pre-Christmas Ozzy Osbourne/Rob Zombie show at Madison Square Garden, contributing writer Kory Grow uses the Yiddish term “yenta” to describe some of the individuals waiting in line to see Cirque de Soleil in the adjoining theater. YB salutes the copyeditor who allowed said term to reach the eyes of a readership almost certain to be unacquainted with it.
How many MetalSucks readers know the meaning of “yenta” (no googling!)? We’re welling to bet the percentage is higher than that of Revolver’s readership!
