Launch is a media magazine containing the latest in music and other pop culture. Instead of a paper medium like most magazines, launch comes in a handy-dandy Frisbee shaped piece of plastic most often referred to as a CD. Launch usually contains:
  • A live music video from a featured band
  • A video interview with that band
  • Mini-interviews with a couple of other bands
  • An interview with a film actor coming out with a new movie
  • Sound clips from 20-30 other bands
  • A new game demo

  • and
  • much, much, more.
