So, the fan club have ditched the Better Than Life brand, after several years of neglect left the magazine moribund and generally shit. Good. Now, they’re after a name for the new, re-branded, better-edited, hopefully-on-time replacement. Chairman Bull has posted a few suggestions on the fan club forums, such as sdrawkcaB, Back To Reality, Smeg, Goit and, ahem, Smegazine.
Look, everyone, there’s no point feeling sorry about BTL. It’s a kindness. Like a blind old incontinent sheepdog, it’s had its day. Take it out to the barn with a double-barreled shot-gun and blow the mother away. And I’m only saying that because I’m so fond of it.
That’s right; after 52 issues the official Fan Club magazine, Better Than Life, is to be put out of its considerable misery and replaced with something just that little bit different.
