Athens Blur Magazine announced on Tuesday that the next issue may very well be its last. It’s a very serious decision and may not be a final one. The possibility of ABM continuing as an online entity or eventually publishing again both hang in the air. For now though, Blur is on hiatus after a good two year run in a very treacherous era for both news publications and music in general. For all of us freelancers, well, this has been happening a lot lately and doesn’t seem like it’s going to stop anytime soon.
It’s a very sad thing to have to watch it go. I know Alec and all the staff poured a lot of time, effort, and love into Blur. I know nothing about their current state of affairs or what ultimately led to this decision but I honestly hope that Alec and the gang will be up and running again soon whether it be through Blur or something else.
