Issue 70 - arrived

Postby r900p » Sat Mar 01, 2008 1:59 pm

Yes the April issue of whisky mag has arrived, very early! Ah well just about to open it up.

Does this mean we have to go 2 months with no mag now.

I've been out since 8am. Taking the wee fella to his swimming lesson, followed by his football coaching (he has a very sporting morning, whilst I make inroads into the Saturday papers!!).

We've just popped into my work for 10 minutes after a spot of lunch - so hoping the postie will have left me a nice surprise when we get back home!!

:lol:

You guys are so fortunate staying at home today. Some of us had to go out before Dave the postie arrived with the post. Or we went to Whisky Live London and picked up our complimentary issue there. The things we have to do A. By the way I've posted this before Matt and Paul A Jellis. :wink:

Matt, i had a very bad train journey last weekend, bus from sheffield-manchester-preston! Try and get some money back! Virgin trains if they are the ones you used are normally quite good at that.

LSD the cover price in the UK is £4.25. So actually with the current exchange rate your $6.99 is in real terms cheaper than in the UK where it is edited and printed. You should be on your knees thanking your lucky stars. :wink:

I'm still waiting for issue #69, hopefully the first to arrive with my new subscription! But I have yet to finish issue #69, so I'm patient.

I saw it in Borders through the window when I was passing this morning. Unfortunately that was before they opened.

:cry:

Do you think they would've minded if I'd smashed the window and left the money for the mag on the counter?

If you left a note what the money was for. I'm sure they would've been alright with that. :) After all that's what insurance is for.

Kevin Macalister did it in Home Alone 2 when he broke the toy shop window, like him you could just say you did it to set the alarm off to catch the burgulars, you managed to stop them getting away with loads of stuff but oddly they did steal a whisky mag. :wink:

Jonathan you can order back issues, from this website. They would probably come through pretty quick as well. :)

Got it, and I didn't have to smash any glass.

Just had a quick flick, but good to see the War on Fakers logo getting a wee plug...

So tell me Matt, Rob, whoever...did anyone notice that issue 69 and 70 both state April 2008? Check out Les' pic of his copy, was it a typo which only appeared on the WL precopies?

Since I just received Issue 69, yesterday, I guess we're only a month behind the other continent rather than the 6 weeks we used to "enjoy".

(Oh and LSD please note that we used to pay $6.95, so from our perspective it's only gone up 4 cents!)

I thought Issue 69 said February/March or something...but I'd need to check. Not got it to hand.

I know that's when they come out in Norfolk, howbeit may, I'm sitting here looking at Issue 69, (in my hand) which cover shows April 2008 and the picture of Issue 69 posted by Les clearly shows April 2008 as well. On a side note Issue 68 states March 2008.

It's obviously a typo, which I know happens from my past experience in editoring a university rag back in the 70's. It would be interesting to see if everyone has the same typo or if it was caught and corrected. if so, my copy may be more valuable than yours! :D
...Or, are there are different dates for foreign printings?

Musky you got me going now. I had to double check my copies. And it is exactly as Wille said Issue 69 Feb/March. Issue 70 April. If you want a close up I'd be happy to oblige.

So, Les, do I still have you going? Honest, this is the cover I'm looking at right now. I wonder why the variation?
I scanned it at 10% and it still comes out as a pretty big jpeg.

Musky you are totally right. The UK edition of that mag has February/March 2008 on it.

Where that leaves us I don't know. Perhaps a letter to the editor might give the answer. You never know your letter might get published and you get a bottle of SM for your trouble.

Okey Dokey:

I have written a short missive to Rob to find out why the variation in covers globally. I've also posed the query whether there is variance in the content of the magazine as well. I know that we don't receive those minis, back massages or visits to read the magazine outloud that the UK subscribers seem to vow they receive. :D

I'll let you know what the response is.
