More of the same

Toronto’s weekly magazine EYE Weekly decided to transform itself into a new publication called The Grid. Why? I’m not sure, but the transformation has proven very disappointing on many fronts in this first issue. Instead of a true re-imagining of the magazine and all its potential, all that seems to have changed is a little of the layout, the size (now inconveniently larger) and the fonts, supposedly very unique, yet very undistinguishable from any other font style. Not even the pass-times or the horoscopes can be salvaged, and the feature article couldn’t be more cliché and unexciting: chefs in Toronto.  Here’s hoping they can find some meat to put in this empty grid.
These people's claim to looking so smug is that they 
cook pork really well.
