Are you a new member due to Juxtapoz?

Recommended Posts

I hope this don't mean we can't hate on Juxtapose anymore. I'll catch a ban, they put out some real garbage nowadays.

 

 

I think you're safe. I have a bunch of issues, but I used to get them for free from a job. Now I'll only buy one if I'm going on bus ride and see someone I'm interested in, mentioned on the cover. I can agree the issues are annoying.

 

 

You know what magazine really fucking blows huge bull cock? Beautiful Decay.

I bought this issue,

a while back, and it was mostly trains and walls. They had a really good interview with David Choe, and covered decent music. So a couple years ago, I was showing my girlfriend the issue, and said "I wonder what happened to this magazine?" So one of my x-mas gifts was a subscription. We started getting the issues, and it was loaded with lame art, and really fucking lame critiques. That magazine can eat a bag of shit.

I think Juxtapose is stuck in it's glory of 1997.

Every issue features a Spacemonkeyish like simple character "original" artist.

None of the issues have someone who isn't over published already.

It's a graphic design magazine for the most part to me, not art, definitely not going against the mainstream like they should IMO.

I see way better shit going down in here artistically speaking, not just graffiti.

I haven't looked at a Juxtapose issue in quite some time though.

But after not being surprised by opening one up for so long why would I keep looking.

David Choe failed once he found God. He was our only savior of the modern art scene and he has fallen. Bow down before the hipster, pajama monsters.

Lol, never heard of ozone. D4T ShiT Iz tItE Do! There have been quite a few graff mags that got all mainstream and went downhill, IMO. Juxtapoz is still decent, I never really considered it a graff mag. Some of the other shit that has been mentioned though, straight garbage.

99 pages of ads that I will never spend my money on. Never paid money for the paper they are printed on for that matter.

Oh --and you're not an "official" member of the forum until DRUNKENASSHOLEONER "negaprops" you. It's not that hard to achieve. Just say you like Law and Order S.V.U or something.

 

 

 

I don't think I've ever negapropped you.

I hope this revelation doesn't revoke your status.

If it does, I call dibs on your mod duties.

For the lamers that actually read current issues of Juxtapoz I am sure they don't even know what juxtapose means.

mass appeal even tho it basically became a big hipster advertisement doing features with actors and other mainstream entertainers to promote their up and coming watnot was still a great toilet/transit read and worth the boost at barnes and nobles.

Aw man, some of my tags and posters wound up in that mag in 2003. It doesn't surprise me that it took a turn for the worse. A lot of mags from that era suck ass now if they're still around at all.

 

"While You Were Sleeping" and "Life Sucks Die" were probably my favorites until they started to suck...I'm not going to lie and say "Yo, I was all about 12 oz in da 90s cuzz" because I only saw one issue (OS GEMEOS). Nice mag, though. I respect Raven for ending it on a high note. "Mass Appeal" was okay till around 2002 or so. "Can Control" and "The Line's Toughest" were all right in the 90s, but they were kind of raw.

 

I had the first issue of Juxtapoz along with the META interview. I haven't looked at a graffiti magazine in years...in fact you could day that I am a shunner. I was recently "forced" to watch a graff video...all it made me do was yawn a lot and say "These guys suck" about 50 or 60 times. It was slightly better once I turned off the sound, though I still cut it short about halfway through.

 

I don't consider Juxtapoz to be a graff magazine per se. I've met some of the people that put it together through a distro in SF various friends of mine have worked at over the years...their hearts are in the right place but I think they're always a little bit behind the curve (3-6 months) when it comes to what's really hot in art.

 

As far as people migrating here from there, just don't ask any stupid questions and you should be all right. Bonus points will be awarded for funny and/or nude content.

i wouldnt even rack that magazine.

 

hah.

 

 

i dug the issue that came out a minute ago on seventhletter,

although ive never bought an issue i do tend to loiter in bookstores for large amounts of time reading comics,manga,video game magazines and at one point i read stephen kings stand in the course of 3 days.

 

jux has pretty much been slowly going down hill since 2001.

 

 

i have a request though , i remember being on a greyhound in the summer of 2000 from dc to ca and met a dude from sf that said he wrote cosmo and said he was featured in jux like 99 or 98 ..dude showed me how to make my D's not so shitty ...give me a holler if somebody can find a back issue link or something

I've got that Alexa ranking system on my browser, and in the past two weeks, the site has jumped up considerably compared to previous months. I don't know if we've got a bunch of new members.....

 

Maybe it's just ppl comming back after Twink was banned?
