But that gives us 9 magazines. Wait! Ten magazines- I get ESPN the Magazine digitally.
Considering I'm in the media, and that I blog about Cosmo and Maxim (a Maxim review will be up soon), I think that's a good amount. Plus, I want to write for a magazine at some point. So its job research. It's much cheaper than buying them in the store. That, and I can save the embarrassment of trying to buy Cosmo for myself.
Entertainment Weekly and Vanity Fair were recent add-ons, as they were practically giving them away on Amazon.com. EW is the trash, VF is the class. Unless it's that naked Miley Cyrus issue. Then everybody's a loser.
Esquire and GQ are both for entertainment, style and great features. That, and a fair amount of thinly-veiled nipples, which in many ways are sexier than Playboy nipple -- I prefer to Where's Waldo my photo nipples, as you appreciate it much more when you find it.
So where does it stop? Do we keep adding subscriptions until we resemble gas station magazine rack? If we get any more magazines, I'll have to start drinking more fluids to add to my bathroom reading time. There's only so much time in the day.
Do we start subscribing to everything we see, from Cat Fancy to World of Warcraft Official Magazine to Girls & Corpses? Playboy keeps sending me offers in the mail for a steeply-discounted subscription, blithely unaware I can see all the nude girls I want online for free, or on most episodes of "True Blood." Eventually, Hef will learn about the World Wide Web.
What magazines do you subscribe to? If you answer World of Warcraft, please stop following my blog. I won't hold it against you. Society will, but I won't. But if you have a magazine subscription you're ashamed of, now is the time to confess. Meme this up...
