We were all saddened, but not surprised, to hear the news that SPIN Magazine decided to pull the plug on their print publication, adding themselves to the ranks of online-only properties last month.
I was a SPIN acolyte as a teen in those heady days of the 90s, and recently decided to re-up when I was offered the rate of $6/year for 6 issues. Then, as a pre-Christmas consolation gift, I was sent an issue of Car and Driver Magazine to fulfill my remaining subscription. While my dad was delighted, I was a bit dismayed. But the accompanying letter from the editor was so hilarious, I thought I would share here:

That’s hilarious and so perfect… Cars as pop culture replacement – a new paradigm.
