From ABC News:
IT’S ABOUT THAT TIME

Here we are at the end of another year, another year filled with assorted epochs of shift as the seasons and months have once again melted into each other so quickly. Where has the time gone? It seems like so much activity was filled into the space of the last 12 months. With the election of our first African-American President, the epidemic of swine flu, the introduction of Nadya Suleman and her octo-wonderland, an unsteady economy, Twilight Mania, the death of Farrah Fawcett, MVPuppet commercials, Susan Boyle, the flight of Falcon Heene, the death of Sen. Ted Kennedy, our soldiers still fighting in two wars, the reform of healthcare, the influx of Tiger Woods’s personal life and the death of Michael Jackson, this year will be pretty hard to forget. But as we ring in the New Year, we will forget, because 2010 will encompass just as many twists and turns from years past. We will need to have our memory banks clear and our eyes glued on the ills and joys of society–collecting what we need to build our spiritual scrapbooks for the days ahead.
With a new year, there will be a new era–and with that, we hope to bring in the new era right with our launch of The Cost Magazine. With this inaugural issue, Our CoverCosts will feature Harlem hip-hop heavyweight Juelz Santana as he talks about his new album, how his fashion sense and rhyme skills intersect, and why The Diplomats will forever be a movement. We also caught up with R&B ace Omarion as he talks about the influence of Michael Jackson on his career, the origin of his new record label and how he interprets the future of the music business. We’ll also feature Q&A interviews from up-and-coming Florida rapper Smokey and distinguished songwriter Claude “Studio Beast” Kelly.
We’ve witnessed so much in 2009, and as we wait anxiously for our respective clocks to strike 12 a.m. on December 31st, The Cost Magazine strives to be an integral part of your experiences in 2010. Stay tuned as we assemble and cultivate an innovative online venture that will hopefully stand the test of time.
Goodbye 2009. There goes another one for the scrapbook.
We hope that you have a blessed, healthy, safe and prosperous holiday season. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from The Cost Magazine.
