Hines A wonderful essay about choosing a soundtrack for a bank robbery manages the unheard of writing well about a love of music The format of the reviews is clever and compelling a pie chart shows us what an album is made of from the smell of a suburban basement to a 13 carlsberg best of all there s a Carlsberg Best of all there s a smell of a suburban basement to a 13 Carlsberg Best of all there s a graph of enjoyment by track showing at a glance whether the reviewer thought "it was an even or even likeable album Pitchfork take note The "was an even or even likeable album Pitchfork take note The section is about half delectable half tedious though I admit that s entirely subjective I m sure other people love outer space comics Many of the in depth features unfortunately are fairly meandering and while I found some of the sports biographies much compelling than I expected I was a little bored by the environmental writing I would expect to enjoy tremendously Stephen King of course should not be allowed to write about sports though I did learn that he apparently has vivid grass green snot since he compares it to the Phillies mascotAll in all the Panorama is a delight to read an interesting experiment and a thoroughly eye catching medium It provides some clever ideas for journalism to borrow and serves in some cases as a cautionary tale If American newspapers are really looking for a print format that could make them relevant to a new audience though I d actually suggest the NRCNext This issue of McSweeney s was absolutely monstrous and took me forever to read Fortunately a great deal of it was fantastic High An interesrting epilogue to the American newspaper a somewhat obvious reaction to the SF Chronicle s precipitous decline This paper possesses some great articles but some so important as to be damaged by this throwaway format A prime example is Jesse Nathan s The Tragedy of Mendocino which should be reuired reading for California voters deciding whether further decriminalization of marijuana is wise or not Not because the article masks an opinion of some 1 kind but because it examines issues that most California voters are blind toBut it is not available online so I can t link to it on Facebook so who is going to read it Sad but true At least the decimated Chronicle publishes online so that what little investigative journalism they do undertake is available to the massesNow I come from a place where the community paper has managed to remain vibrant and invested in the community Riverside the heart of darkness They managed this by being early adopters to the internet understanding that their paper doesn t serve just the city but the multitudinous suburbs beyond and doing low budget local stories that actually mean something Sure they don t have foreign correspondants but at least theynow Temecula from Temescal Valley In other words they approach their community as a network of places as opposed to a place Personally I m never going to read the Chronicle because it will never understand the North Bay but I am hardly going to read the Napa Valley Register because it will only take the most cursory examination of the facts Best newspaper I ve ever read. D Art Spiegelman and many others besides and a magazine and a weekend guide and will basically be an attempt to demonstrate all the great things print journalism can still do with as much first rate writing and reportage and design and posters and games and on location Antarctic travelogues. I don t think McSweeney s achieved their goal here The included magazines were nice and the entire thing is pretty But none of the reporting felt deeply investigative or professional with meandering stories and unclear conclusions the norm The paper mill piece is probably the worst example and the headline bridge piece probably was the strongest though in need of Bravo This one off Sunday Newspaper prototype represents an aspirational view of what our media could be if only That said It s clearly not sustainable As A Daily Or a daily or weekly and its elements point toward it being at best a 4xyear type special edition such as McSweeney s actually is But it seems to be a look both forward and backward a merger of the auto show concept car hey look how cool your future could be if you just get on See More board and a nostalgic epitaph for a dead media economics model Every section from Sports to Arts to the 96pg Book Review has been conceived with fresh eyes Articles "are unfailingly well executed entertaining and enlightening And most impressively for a newspaper produced by a "unfailingly well executed entertaining and enlightening And most impressively for a newspaper produced by a outfit It represents the highest standards of journalism in terms of accuracy fairness not the same as even handedness and dogged reportage I have begun collecting the last issues of dead newspapers such as the Rocky Mountain News For balance this one must be a eeper as well it could be called The Phoenix McSweeney s 33 takes the form of a one shot newspaper called The San Francisco Panorama about the size of a sunday paper Besides the news section brief you get sections of investigative reportage a sports section a food section a book review magazine another magazine of various articles and a comics section all of which is presented in broadsheet fashion with two magazines inside There are a huge number of contributors many of them big names Daniel Handler aka Lemo The San Francisco Panorama is massive Taking easily as long to read as a six hundred page novel it s David Eggers s Sunday paper on steroids an attempt to reinvision the American newspaper As a sort of satire of a newspaper the Panorama works very well some of the sections are thoroughly brilliant others use the large format of the newspaper in a way typically wasted by the big dailies Eggers however seems to have an idea that he has reinvented the newspaper for the 21st century creating a sustainable way forward Reading it reveals this as an obvious untruth but much of the writing is still great I loved the Magazine pullout almost in its entirety from a wonderful satirical essay on the bank bailout to the anniversary trip of two San Francisco men to a days long NASCAR rally in smalltown Michigan The walk through all of Spain got slightly tedious and a report on working at the South Pole provides good evidence for banning all future instances of autobiographical essay in the second personThe books section too has a lot of good writing in it And the arts section Typically writing about music and music reviews are unhelpful and unbearable but here the Panorama really Issue 33 of McSweeney’s uarterly will be a one time only Sunday edition sized newspaper the San Francisco Panorama It'll have news actual news tied to the day it comes out and sports and arts coverage and comics sixteen pages of glorious full color comics from Chris Ware and Dan Clowes an.
