We’re about to go through some big changes here at CMG. As you may have noticed for the past (almost) 15 years we’ve been hacking it out on this new fangled idea called the Internet. Well, it appears that we may have backed the wrong horse.
With the federal government’s unwavering belief that print will once again reign supreme with the help of large tax dollar subsidies and the undeniable fact that there’s nothing quite like a print mag when you’re sitting on the shitter and fancy something to read, we’ve decided to back a winner and go back into print!
But for all you online addicts, fear thee not as we’ll be going with the latest trend in print-goes-online-without-having-to-reformat-itself and will have a clunky (but impressive to old people) PDF format of CMG that actually makes the sound of a turning page every time you want to read on!
Of course, you’ll have to pay us $20 a year for the privilege, but it also comes with 12 free issues of Inside Motorcycles. Hey, once those government subsidies have covered the staff drink tabs there isn’t a whole lot left for techno-wizardry like this.
But this isn’t all about switching horses. In a shock high court decision last week plucky upstarts Hell For Leather were granted all rights to the Internet, which will now be renamed Hell for Internet. They argued the case that because they were first at every story and everyone else just copied them they should be given exclusive rights to the Internet.
It’s a hard case to argue against, and I have to admit that CMG was really just Hell For Leather with a tricky little piece of software that changed the word "America" to "Canada" in all the articles.
The new print magazine will be called Mojo Bikers Inside Canada and goes on sale today.
