I think Crawl is about the only legit magazine out there.

I used to get all of them, but after a while I got tired of paying for what was basically a monthly catalog.

Yeah, its like theres less and less actual articles to read and tons of pages about buying junk. I used to buy petersons, but they dont really build anything anymore

And even the articles they did have are fucking jokes. They seem to be written for people like Krista that need a how to on installing seat covers.

What I hate most is when you Google something and one of the top results is a write up they did in their magazine with about a half dozen pictures and a very high level overview of what happened...and that's it.

If the majority of your time is spent here, then National Enquirer or Star would be the mag to get.

I have Petersons but they're quality keeps going downhill.. Crawl is great but Imo a bit pricey for a bi monthly mag (although the content is MUCH better and its a Thicker mag)

He worked for the original Crawl and when the owner fucked everyone and took off with the money I'm guessing he or the new owners that took over didn't think it was very important to pay him. But I'm just guessing.
