Alright, lets start off by saying that technology for me these days could be taking a downward spiral. Call me old fashion, but there’s nothing like having an actual copy of your reading material. Even when it comes down to albums, I would much rather buy a copy, verses downloading it onto my computer. Now, you mean to tell me that I have to read some of my favorite magazines via my bulky, solid, tablet? Some things just should be left original, I guess I’m a purist. – My Rant
Anyways, with all that being said, I must admit, this new “digital underground” that has taken us by storm is pretty cool. I’ve never heard of a digital cover for a magazine, almost like something out the Fifth Element movie. Featured as part as a whole week dedicated to one of SWIFTLIFEACHIEVER’s favorite artists, Pharrell Williams takes a futuristic spin on your everyday magazine.
I highly urge you all to sit down and experience this new innovative way to read magazines and of course take time out to actually hear what Skateboard P has to say. I have yet to actually read the interview, still too amazed at the overall concept of a fully digital magazine. The concept of a moving and interactive magazine is quite brilliant I must say, I do however recommend having a fast computer when trying to enjoy, the lag could be a little annoying. Overall though, a great first experience! Great job complex!
