Among the other reasons to purchase Longshot magazine-the 60-page magazine created, written, designed and edited over the course of last weekend!-is that among the nearly 60 contributors is one Alexandra Paul (AKA Lt. Stephanie Holden of Baywatch fame). Also for nerds like myself, there is a short and elegant piece by Nick Sylvester, in which he (for what I believe is the first time) addresses a semi-long-ago dust-up of conflicting values, which ended in him being tossed out of Pitchfork and the Village Voice. The main reason to purchase it is to support weird media projects, of course! Alternately, you could just get it on your iPad for free.
