    Dr. Hook: now that is the true face of evil. I had no issue with them putting the Boston bomber on the cover: it was a big story. (I assume so, anyway; I did not read it.) I did have an issue with their doing it in such a way that it looked like a reprise of the classic Jim Morrison “He’s hot, he’s sexy, and he’s dead” cover from the early 80s. Miley Cyrus: to say I only barely even know who Miley Cyrus is would be overstating it, but, then, I suspect that’s the case with a lot of people who land on the cover that long past its expiration date mag.

    I thought the bomber guy looked like the recent Bob Dylan cover. I didn’t get to read the bomber article because my cat barfed on that issue. At least it was easy to clean up. Miley Cyrus looks like a boy. A little boy. She creeps me out.

  3. I voted for Cyrus for be less worthy as well. Sad as it is to say, the bomber guy actually accomplished something newsworthy, if absolutely horrible. The accompanying article, by the way, sucked. It was one of those thumb-sucking pieces asking me to feel sorry for the sweet, young lad who was corrupted by his big, bad brother and screwed-up parents. Happens all the time: damn dysfunctional families turning out murderer kids.

    I thought Rolling Stone’s choice of cover image, though, was meant to evoke the Dead Milkmen’s Joe Jack Talcum:


  4. I read the Bomber article and thought it was useful as a celebrity account of a kid who, except for a dysfunctional family, might have been any other kid. They rarely try to humanize these guys so it was an untried perspective.

    And OK for Miley Cyrus as well. Get to work on a collab w/ Ke$hsa right away!

  5. I actually still like Rolling Stone. I think it’s better than it has been in years (that might be damning with faint praise but it’s praise nonetheless).

    As for the covers, the Boston bomber was a big story so I think it was a legit cover.

    What I’ve heard of Miley’s music is abysmal but she’s been around now for longer than most people would have imagined so I guess there’s some justification for her being on the cover of a pop culture magazine. I just wish she would stop sticking her tongue out so much when it’s all coated. That shit is nasty.
