Pavemant cracks

After thirteen years of almost porn and not-quite paedofile handbooks Pavement magazine is shutting down the presses. According to editor in chief Barney Mac, the move is not because of recent outrage about a 'photo essay' where you can see up the snatch of a ten year old girl and out of her mouth. It is for financial reasons.

"Advertisers are being harder to come by, all the magazines are suffering." Barney was loosely paraphrased as saying. We at IS IT ART don't see Home and Garden going out of business, but then again, we don't see objectionable material gracing their pages. The same goes for all the other fashion magazines.

So gee whizz, Barn. Ads are hard to come by? I wonder why... Maybe companies just don't want to advertise any more. Unlikely.

Fortunately, Pavement has an offspring- Grow Up magazine, which is like Vice magazine for teeny-boppers, if such a demographic exists. Now if you thought Pavement was rubbish, but found the pages to be too glossy to absorb rectal scrapings, then Grow Up might just be what you are looking for.

So what's next for Barney? Will he continue to fill his drawers with candid up-the-skirt-polaroids while wearing ladies undergarments stolen from the washing lines of top execs above the AK skyline? Sadly unavoidably, we will be watching.

Jesus that teen issue of Pavement was perverted. I felt like I was committing a sex crime just by reading it. Its worth noting that Pavement is distributed in Melbourne and is generally found gracing badly constructed Ikea furniture in most hair salons. I noticed that the latest issue of pavement was inconspicuously absent last week when I got my bi-monthly $20 cut. Where will the anorexics and fashionistas get their holy dose self flagelation now?

That issue was one of their best, it sold the most copies to men in raincoats than any other issue. We at IS IT ART are glad to see the back of it.

Love you too, you irascible old arsehole.

If only people would stop doing searches on themselves, they wouldn't get so insulted.

Insulted? Hardly. I'd expect nothing less of you.
