magazines n such

I was talking to my friends Tore and Linda about this and that, and we go into the subject of magazine subscripions. I think it is interesting to see what kind of newspapers, magazines and the like different people subscribe to. It tells you something about them, no? I believe so.

Personally I subscribe to two magazines; American GQ and Vice. I'm not really GQ's target audience, I don't even own a suit. But I enjoy the advertisements, and the articles and editorials are great. Vice just...fascinates me. Those people really don't have any limits at all.


In my attempt to get to know you all better, I want you to tell me what newspapers or magazines you subscribe to and why. I would just really like to know.

vogue (american) - the ads and fashion business side
vogue (paris) - best ads and more style
HOW - progressive design ideas and layouts, for business & enjoyment
surface & V - edgey and slightly alternative high fashion
GQ - clean layouts and fun ads

I actually don't subscribe to any. If I did, it would be Shape, Fitness, National Geographic Adventure, National Geographic Traveler, and Outside. I would love to be able to do everything in each of those magazines.

"Self"-for fitness stuff, but it's also got yummy beauty tips and isn't so hardcore health that I feel like a loser.
"Fitness"- for fitness stuffies only, it makes me feel like a loser! *laugh*
I don't subscribe to it, but I love Vogue :D :D

Haha yay beauty tips!

I don't subscribe to anything, because I can usually read most magazines either at work or online for free. If I were subscribing to anything, though...I think it'd be:

-Premiere Magazine = because I think they have excellent articles about movies and actors, and aren't always so taken with the gossipy "OMG IT'S A CELEBRITY" side, and are more concentrated on the quality of the films
-Everyday Food from Martha Stewart = because they consistently have very good recipes and innovative ideas about old standby recipes that are actually implementable by the average cook (not needing seventeen ingredients and an expensive trip to the gourmet market and all that - though I do enjoy buying and cooking gourmet food as well :D )
-Cooks Illustrated = because they go about explaining the cooking process in a very scientific way, so as to teach you exactly why things could be done this way or that way, and how it'll affect your cooking
-Jane Austen's Regency World = history/lit geek am I
-Print = excellent graphic design magazine
-HOW = more of a layman's graphic design magazine, but still quite talented and worth the read-through for graphic designers
-Wired = because I like their articles about technology

Plus various linguistic and ancient history academic journals that'd likely bore most people. :D

That's the second HOW :) *makes a note to check it out*

And I had no idea you were such a cook either. THIS ENTRY IS JUST FULL OF SURPRISES ^_^

I'm more of a baker than a cook; my favorite thing to bake at home is pies from scratch. :) But I also enjoy the cooking aspects.

And yeah; HOW and Print are remnants of my days as a graphic design student, my first year of college. :P

Those were the days, eh?

I love pastries. A lot :D
