Thanks for the peptalk bigwes but I can't. I'm really glad I was able to vent here and I appreciate everybody's opinion, pro or con, but I'm done. I've tried to cancel what's left of my subscription, but everytime I call the customer service number, it's either busy or out of service. Anyway, I have like 5 or 6 issues left, so I'm gonna let it run out and sit back and watch Fangoria die. The last several covers have been a complete disgrace. I've already been in a major pissing match with Chris Alexander on the Fango's website, and he has made his feelings known. He cannot accept any form of criticism and he simply doesn't understand why folks are upset. It is more than me. They have already deleted two posts of mine because they are fearful that others may agree with me. There are others who hate the Simmons cover as well. At this point, there is no turning back for me. Fangoria is close to becoming defunct anyway. The internet will eventually kill it altogether. It will go strictly online like it's sister publication Starlog. You'll see. What burns my ass the most is that Fangoria no longer gives a shit about the old guard..the war horses like you and me bigwes. They are trying desperately to grab a new audience..but the fact is, they are aiming at younger folks in their teens and 20's. That's fine in itself, but the problem with that is most teens and 20 some year olds are not reading magazines. They get all of their information online. Magazines might as well serve as toilet paper. Half probably don't even know who the hell Gene Simmons is, and if they do, it's because of his reality show, not from his days with KISS. I don't blame the younger generation for this either. They are living their lives in different technological times. Furthermore, Mr. Alexander accuses me of being narrowminded. I am not. I assure you that I like all types of horror, but Gene Simmon does not belong on the god damned cover, PERIOD!! If you want an article, fine, but he is attempting to make Fangoria into an american version of Rue Morgue, which I don't like either. Rue Morgue is okay, but there is a reason why Fangoria has always been my favorite, and now since Mr. Alexander has moved on board, he is fucking with the loyal few who actually give a shit about Fangoria. Perhaps he will read this post, but I wouldn't hold my breath. He and the rest of Fangoria's staff refuse to listen to any comments or criticism about the direction they are taking the magazine. Trust me. The fact that there was a major coo and shakedown at Fangoria, and a new owner to boot, tell me that not all is well in Fangorialand. It's just a matter of time. How damn sad!!
