Slug #227

Slug #227 / Free / 64M / 1:30 / http://www.slugmag.com /

The individuals that work to create Slug Magazine are nice. So nice, in fact, that they send NeuFutur 3 copies of the magazine an issue. This issue provides individuals with probably their last glimpse of skateboarding in Utah (or in Utah print) until everything warms back up. In order to hold individuals over until then, there is perhaps the most skateboarding related content in this issue that I’ve ever seen in Slug. There are reviews of boards, different interviews with skateboarders, and the like – enough for those individuals to go into hibernation until the spring, stuffed with the nourishment of material that Slug provided. Beyond the skateboarding information, there are pieces regarding the mayoral election in Salt Lake City, the continued ordeals of Marty Kasteler (a bicycler that was hit by a delivery van), and the story about the importance of Boy George as important in the lives of Oomingmak and Boudica Juicyfruit. The amount of advertisements in this issue feels a little bit larger than in previous issues, but it may just be my own perception. However, as is always the case with issues of Slug, the quality of the writings in this issue are strong enough to make up for flipping through the advertisements. Individuals that want to know what albums they should buy from the holiday season should look into thee very detailed and interesting reviews put forth by Slug. If you are local, pick up Slug. If you have a few extra bucks, throw it to them and they will send you a copy.

Rating: 6.8/10
