ALSO: We lose The Awl and Doug Moore’s Black Market, but Black Metal and Brews is Alive Again

ALSO is a collection of miscellaneous bits I find during the week, and also the name of the quarterly print zine I send to members.

:: The Awl and The Hairpin close up shop. I’m sure we’re gonna see a lot more sites closing in the coming year.

:: I didn’t catch this, but Doug Moore’s Black Market column ended over at Stereo Gum. “I’ve just been writing about metal for a very long time, since I was in high school,” he wrote in his last piece, “and the time has come to move on.”

:: Ben posted ‘2017’s Finest’ over at his new / old Black Metal and Brews blogspot.
