The Classical Magazine Issue Five/5/V Is Out

Share |

So, I went over the delayed release of the most recent issue of The Classical Magazine recently, and the most important thing to know about it is that there are no more delays. It's here. Or rather it's here. And if you want a non-iOS version, you can email Pete here for a bespoke version in your platform of choice: .MOBI, .PDF, .PUIG or whatever you want.

The issue is called Talking, Sports, and it's full of very good things -- a long interview with John Starks by Tom Scharpling and Chris Gethard, a real profile of American Oracle and good dude Nate Silver by Bryan Joiner and a fake profile of a Charlestown Chiefs legend, and one of the very first and very best pieces to run on the site, and an interview with David Whitford, author of the definitive book on the most corrupt college football program in history, by Max Thorn. There is also a sprawling director's cut of Rob Trump's three-part oral history of Fire Joe Morgan. And I wrote an introduction, although of course I did. There is, per the usual, a bunch of great art from Brad Beatson, Lee Ginsberg, Jeffrey Dowdy, Robert Silverman, Paul Windle and the unstoppable J.O. Applegate, whose cover is above. It's really good. You should probably buy it.

And that is all there is to say about it, probably, although I'll say one more thing because I'm tired and in a sentimental type of mode. The issue was delayed for a bunch of reasons, starting back in August when I was off the internet for a bit, expanding into September when I suddenly realized I was way behind on the production process, spiraling further into September as I got buried in other work and other things, and finally wrapping up early Friday. There's no reason why this should matter to you, and it certainly isn't an excuse, but a good bit of the delay in these last days was because I found myself suddenly and very deeply in the psychological shit -- an old and typically persistent tendency toward depression jumped up at me, with a little unneeded help from our shitty politics having an especially and epically shitty week, and I suddenly found myself doing the things I usually do very sleepily, very heavily, very slowly and with very little in the way of delight or even relief. Which of course made them harder to do. Again, not an excuse, or even fully an explanation. Just a thing that happens.

I'm feeling somewhat better, if you were curious, for the reasons that I usually feel better. I spent some time out and with people and away from media -- I wrote about this particular antidepressant at SB Nation today -- and I spent some time working on this magazine while figuring out how to use the (actually very intuitive and hugely impressive) publishing tool built by our brilliant friends at 29th Street.

They both helped, but working on this issue -- thinking about what it was about and writing about it, which is always the best thing for me, but also just the rote work of fixing tags and copy stuff, and reading and editing all these awesome words and putting all this fantastic art on it -- was a huge boost. All of us here are hugely fortunate to still be doing this all this time after we started, and to be doing it with writers and artists as talented as these, and for readers like you. I'm humbled and hugely grateful for that good luck, and to you all for reading it. Thanks to all of you for all of it, and for your patience. Enjoy the issue.
