Eddie Aikau Peace Talk With Wayne “Rabbit” Bartholomew

“The following season on the North Shore would prove to be one Wayne “Rabbit” Bartholomew would never forget. Death threats and punch-outs meted out by local surfers soon forced Rabbit and a handful of other Down Under crew to live in a state of siege in a nearby resort.” – BUSTIN’ DOWN THE DOOR

More Heat For The Enthusiast Network

“The company formerly known as Source Interlink has restructured as TEN: The Enthusiast Network. They had been distributors for 2600 magazine, a beloved, longstanding tech-counterculture institution, and they owed 2600 nearly $100K.” – Cory Doctorow

“But we also have a message for TEN: The Enthusiast Network: You don’t get to just make mistakes in one area, change your name, and set up shop in another without fulfilling your outstanding obligations. Sure, your half of Source Interlink may not have been the one that fell apart. But it was still part of the same company. You had the same name! (until you realized that you no longer wanted to be seen as connected to your failed endeavors)” – 2600 Magazine

The affected print titles are mostly niche, aftermarket brands affiliated with magazines that have broader market coverage. – Source Interlink closes 12 magazines


We are pleased to know Surfer and Surfing magazine are safe for now

Source Interlink Distribution Parent Company Claims Bankruptcy

“In the meantime, the other former Source Interlink Co. operation, TEN, publishes niche magazines, such as car titles that include Hot Rod, Motor Trend and Truckin (and Surfer, Surfing)’. But things are looking gloomy on the editorial front, too.” – Jamie Mason

Kamen, for one, believes TEN will end up having to sell these publications. “I don’t see anything good on the horizon for [TEN],” he asserted. “Their future is pretty much doomed.” – Kevin Kamen (CEO of print media brokerage firm Kamen & Co. Group)

“Source Interlink Distribution — will be closing its doors.” – New York Post

“We are losing some great magazines, and more importantly thousands of our own are going to be standing in the unemployment line.” – Media Shepherd
