alexskolnick Great night at Over the Eight in Brooklyn for the launch of UNBUILT, the new biannual print mag edited by Randy Blythe, Tom Bergrowicz & yours truly. Terrific Q&A/moderating by Brad Tolinski + fun hang, followed by a signing with many fans who showed up to support. It was nice to have some of our subjects in attendance including Tom's story on Reiner album design (the legendary pair behind Metallica's "And Justice For All") as well as my own stories on architecture (architect & urban planner Maddy Samaddar - also part of the recent New York Times article on female architects) and the hidden world of musicians on Broadway (guitarist and rocker turned pit-maestro Jake Schwartz , currently holding it down at The Book of Mormon). Preview, ordering instructions & other info on Issue #1 can be http://manalivecreative.bigcartel.com/product/unbuilt-issue-01 @unbuiltmag @drandallblythe 6d

alexskolnick #Prince gone (?!?). Beyond crushed. Icon. Genius. 2 much 2 say. No words. Photo via AP & printed in today's NY Times. Even if you're not a fan, you should watch this video to find out why guitarists (myself included) hold him in the highest regard, right up there with all the greats. Google this: "Prince, Tom Petty, Steve Winwood, Jeff Lynne and others -- "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=6SFNW5F8K9Y. RIP 1w

alexskolnick Got a very exciting announcement! Those who've wondered when I'll start blogging again (it's been a while) or write another book (haven't had time), here is a new vehicle for my own writing and much more: UNBUILT is a biannual, limited edition culture and lifestyle publication created by graphic designer and music biz vet Tom Bejgrowicz, who chose as his editorial team myself and my bro @drandallblythe (<click here to glimpse our first cover, shot by Randy, a serious photog). #UNBUILT will feature articles, interviews, art and photos worthy of your undivided attention, which is why it's only available in glorious high quality print! In Issue 1, I hang with two Broadway musician pals (Jake Schwartz and Mat Fields) who play for groundbreaking musicals: The Book of Mormon (by the South Park team) and Matilda (music by Tim Minchin) respectively; I "shadow" them in the pit, document the experience and call it (what else) "Into the Pit." I also interview expert architect Maddy Samaddar who offers fascinating insight into the craft and shows why, indeed, "Architecture Matters." In addition, Issue 1 includes interviews with activist artist Sue Coe, documentary/video director Tom Berninger, author and veteran Kevin Powers and Reiner Design, the artists behind the packaging for Metallica’s …And Justice For All and “The Black Album” as well as Randy's photographic essay on surfing culture created during a trip to the Cayman Islands. UNBUILT’s “Exhibition Space” centerfold spread will spotlight a different artist in each issue with Pittsburgh’s Mike Egan gracing the inaugural edition. There are some really nice ideas cooking for future issues too. And how cool is this:
$1 from every sale of UNBUILT will go to help those in need around the world. Humane Society International and the International Committee of the Red Cross will each receive 50¢ from every issue sold.
Self-published and ad-free, UNBUILT can be pre-ordered online and begins shipping worldwide on April 26, 2016! Order copies of UNBUILT, t-shirts and more: manalivecreative.bigcartel.com
Follow UNBUILT on Instagram: @unbuiltmag #unbuiltmagazine Cheers and Enjoy! AS

  •   lovingscup I like the fact that it it limited to being bi-annual. Putting complete thought and sincerity in your writing is a time consuming task that you definitely take to heart. Cheers @alexskolnick 1mon
  •   triplegoddess13 Very nice! Reminds me a bit of early "Paper Magazine" days. Quality coffee-table worthy publications are few and far between anymore, it seems. The Internet has put a damper on that. Hard copy is so much sexier when done right, too...What a cool project to be in on the ground floor on! 🍾 1mon
  •   kristaldotcom His looks awesome I look forward to purchasing this 1mon

alexskolnick Several chapters in so far...Breathtaking (deserves a classic Hetfield "Yeahhh!"). When I took this on tour, had no idea that a few wks back, I'd get to visit the very room where it was written (Hemingway House, Key West, Fla). 1mon
