you should write one of your signature rants to them (they do do a letter/feed back section dont they?) explaining how they are doing such a terrible job. Maybe they will put it in the mag and try to come up with some witty response.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

I can't speak for the rest of the magazine. I have only thumbed through it a few times before reading this article. It's just my initial impression. If this whole article was intended to be taken seriously, then it is an epic fail. I still suspect that this article is a bit tongue-in-cheek but who knows, maybe I'm giving them too much credit.

There's no irony they bag on bro's and then talk just like them. It's written like every fucking douche bag weekend warrior Boulderite talks.

I've got something in the works that is going to take care of this.

It was a little bro-mosexual, but I read another article (Cloud Seeding) and it didn't have nearly as much bro-brah in it.

I'm guessing they did it on purpose though, because if they didn't... I don't know how it would have gotten published other than a dude starting his own magazine and making his own rules.

The way it's written does nothing for it's content... which is, er, lacking to say the least

That's pretty much exactly what it is.

The Breck article is awful. Serious grade school stuff, and not even that good. I think maybe Tyrant wrote it...

What is funny though, the cloud seeding article is actually decent.
