What I hated was when some music magazines, a few years ago, started reviewing films, DVDs, etc. And I'm not talking music-related films or music-related DVDs, but non-music stuff.

I don't mind a magazine covering books about music or reviewing live concerts that have made their way to DVD. But if I want to read about a film, I'll buy a movie magazine.
Problem with the world in 2018: everyone wants to be a generalist, but no-one wants to be a specialist. The butcher's shop near me was selling Easter eggs last Easter. Fucking Easter eggs. Why not just continue to specialise in selling meat? Why branch out? Why have a slice of every pie?
The greengrocer's store by me is now selling flowers. Again, stick to selling fruit and vegetables, let florists sell flowers.
As I said in the video rental thread, the guy running an already-small video store started selling ice cream and soft drinks in bottles. He hardly had the space for videotapes, let alone that crap. I could go over the road to get ice cream and Coca-Cola.
I prefer specialists to generalists. I'd rather music magazines stuck to what they know.
