"Spin" magazine? More like "I'm never, ever going to read that piece of crap ever again" magazine*

Killing Yourself to Leave Spin: 100% of a True Story
This one even we saw coming. On the heels of Spin's rather unspectacular sale to Hartle Media, and yesterday's shuffling of the editorial decks, famed essayist and Spin writer Chuck Klosterman has decided to pack it up. Our source confirms a tip we recieved earlier in the day that the author of Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs and Killing Yourself to Live: 85% of a True Story was cleaning out his desk today.

There is now officially no good reason to ever read Spin ever again. Even if the little subscription card screams 9,376 months for only $11, don't do it. It's not worth it. It's become the Star of music magazines: all fun facts, weird out of context quotes from Dave Grohl and "Celebrities: they're just like us"-style features with Gwen Stefani.

Today: 60-minute power walk

*Unless, of course, there's something in there about the Smashing Pumpkins reunion or Kim Deal/The Breeders.
