Wizard Magainze Has Come To An End

For some of the nerdier people in the crowd Wizard Magazine had a special spot for those who loved comic from the early 90s. Wizard World has just announced the end of this niche magazine which has developed over the years. Its honestly sad to see print magazines not able to make it in this market, but they have just announced it will turn into a digital magazine. I remember Wizard Magazine when I used to check comic releases and prices of comic, collectibles, and other releases. I thought that it was doing relatively well for its niche market but it didn’t survive the digital age. I just hope the digital version is just as good as the nerdy original magazine.

T-Square Magazine will be hosting its second dinner night under the theme “Why Design? Cause and Effect”. The theme of the night will be the theme of our upcoming 8th issue of T-Square Magazine. The night will include 4 presentations from 4 different Architects, an exhibition showcasing students work and a timeline of the history of the Department of Architecture at Kuwait University.

Organized by T-Square Magazine, a student based architectural magazine together with KASA(Kuwait Architectural Student Association) and AIAS(American Institute for Architecture Students) “A Night for Architecture” at the Americani Cultural Center. January 13, 2010 6-9pm.

I’m a fan of architecture so I’m curious to check this exhibit out, and especially since checking out their magazine online, a lot of great articles and amazing pictures.

Why The Reselience?

I guess it’s two fold. For starters, 2008 saw some of the strongest new bikes for years escape from manufacturers’ R&D departments, inspiring otherwise happy bikers to shun their garage-wife, and buy a new one.

Secondly, our addiction to bikes isn’t about economic stability, the prosperity of the country, or the state of the banking industry.  In fact, it couldn’t be much more off a reaction against the status quo. Bikes are the escape, the freedom, the hedonism that give us the antidote to the real world that we need to function. We need more then than ever right now, and with the veritable flange of stunners we have heading our way this year, there’s every reason to keep bucking the trend.

Our bikes, and the way we modify and use them, defines who we are. It’s a lifestyle choice, not a fashion statement, and they’ve never boon so good.

This is a statement from the editor of FastBikes, Richard ‘Moby’ Newland, and I couldn’t have said it any better about the feeling of riders to their machines.
