    I don't really either at all but (devil's advocate) didn't his print magazine just die while Whitechapelains continue to multiply?


    If you'd read the link, you'd see that the intent was for it to mostly migrate to the web. And Whitechapelains do NOT continue to multiply, I'm afraid.

    I read it (twice now thanks to the accusation) and I think that Alan basically said exactly what I’m saying:

    What we’re doing after that is we will be putting original content up on the website, which we’re redesigning to make it more user-friendly, ’cause it was very pretty before, but not necessarily easy for people to use. It was a bit fussy and complicated, so on a lot of people’s computers there was a lot of delay time,

    I think Alan is saying his initial approach is was mistake (holding him back?) and an online presence would be a stronger force ( works for freakangels) Was the mag intended for communicating ideas to a major audience or was it meant to be

    an almost fetishistic object ?

    @Whitechapelains do NOT continue to multiply, I'm afraid.

    Warren you are to modest- this place is working & growing & communicative & accessible & sociologically significant, but you might have competetion if Alan get's his online arse together.

    I bought them all, but then I live in Northampton and the magazine increasingly became about my town.


    thats why i only bought the first 3. i flipped through later ones and it didnt appear to be much to really interest me. they were a little pricey so i didnt want to keep it up, and i sold them on ebay for about what i paid...turns out it was a whitechapel fellow (which one? i honestly dont remember right now).

    that ASTOUNDING WEIRD PENISIS mini that alan drew was totally mad.

    I've read a few, I never felt cool enough and didn't really 'understand' much of it.

    I wouldn't be too concerned about a Moore forum overtaking Whitechapel as he doesn't have an existing online presence, in comparison to Warren. We're safe.

    He is quite clearly saying only that the website needs a redesign. At no point does he state an opinion that print was a mistake.

    this place is working & growing & communicative & accessible & sociologically significant

    It is really none of those things.

    Yeah he's really just saying that he made a lot of mistakes with print, I guess it's just me thinking that the online route is a more appropriate way to communicate probably because I am unable to afford magazines and would like to think that other poor or unsuspecting users might also be exposed to the wonderful weirdness. Alan is certainly getting hip to this stuff though, I'm excited to see the redesign

    you're funny, if I was a giant parrot with a face as pretty as Julian Sands' I'd have no choice but to fall aggressively in love with you.
