This is so exciting Mari! I'm excited for Tucson! It feels like we're getting an edgy zine!
Good luck! As a start maybe you fix the links to the comics on this site. They haven't worked in months.
Dan feels the lonliness of magnets...
Now I'm trying to wrap my head around the miraculous vision of ICP covering 69 Love Songs.
Dylan, one good physicist could solve your and Dan's magnet problem quite easily. Understand magnetic fields. It's the fields that's key to the whole thing.
Getting to the bottom of this magnets thing is going to take a task force with reporters from a multitude of news orgs. Too bad you won't be able to spearhead that one ; )
Safe travels, Dan.
Stay gold, ponyboy.
Would love to have seen what amazing things the Weekly would have done under Dan's leadership. Bummed he's leaving the Weekly but best wishes to him in his next adventure.
So when they add the ad size the killed I will come back.
...and I thought that was them being gracious. You're saying it's an ideology.
Now I get it. I thought they were just reflecting their readers beliefs.
But that's exactly what killed the Star.
I wish I could say I thought Chuckle was wrong, but I can't.
Smarmy responses to posts - Scarpia - have become de rigeur at the TW by Gibson, Danehy and Safier. That may well be absent under the bean counter culture of its new owners. Smarmy responses lead to the realization that TW writers, warts and all, are human and at times peculiarly thin-skinned given their choice of work.
I would miss that.
So, 10/13 Communications, in its infinite wisdom, has named Thelma Grimes as editor of Tucson Weekly, in addition to her editorial management of all the other 10/13 shlock publications in the market? Wow, we are so fucking impressed. Somebody really oughta start up a competitor, because these yokels, led by "Best Buy" Ryan Kedzierski, are fucking clueless.
I think the longest term as TW editor goes to founding editor Doug Biggers, who was in the position for nearly 17 years.
To be completely truthful, I am not going to miss the smarmy responses to posts.
Good luck over on the Dark Side.
Thanks for your stint at the Tucson Weekly Dan, you've been a great editor. I wish you all success in your next endeavors!
Best wishes to you Dan. I know you'll be successful.
It's all about effort!
I didn't particularly care for Gibson's voice, and he had a negative reputation among a lot of freelance writers, but I won't pretend his leaving isn't the final death knell for the Tucson Weekly we once knew and loved. 10/13 has been simply gutting the thing in the interest of turning it into just another sleek, shitty, local listings blog. Journalism here is truly dead. Sad. This was a great paper. Thank you to Banks, Regan, Vanderpool, Nintzel, and all the other talented writers of the past that made this paper a true representation of the community, of a Tucson that once was!
