Subject: What magazines do you read/subscribe to?

Written By: Ashkicksass on 12/05/08 at 3:22 pm

I'm surprised there isn't a thread about this.  At least not one that I could find, anyway.  Maybe I just didn't look hard enough.  Anyway, what magazines do you read on a regular basis?  What do you subscribe to?

Isn't Playboy for people that want to read about current events and interesting articles. and as for the pictorials, don't they airbush the. wait... I mean they airbrush  ::)  the fox's naughty tingly parts.  I think I have 1 Playboy ( a collectors issues) of course, where the famous wrestler WWE diva Sable bared all.

I used to buy a monthly console/games mag for the Playstation 2. Collected every single issue for the best part of 3 years. Then they got in this new editor and he tried completely re-designing the entire magazine and made it crap so I stopped collecting. That and the fact that during the time i'd been collecting it, i'd only bought a handful of games

I never subscribed, but I used to buy issues of GAMEPRO Magazine in the 90s.  Back in the day, GAMEPRO was the #1 video game magazine.  There was even a short-lived TV series based on the magazine that was hosted by J.D. Roth and Brennan Howard (I didn't even have to look those names up either.  That show is still fresh in my mind lol)

Poor Howard. The very pages he covets .... seeing again.

Actually ... there WAS a Christmas calendar ..... that used to ... uhm ... amuse me .... back in the early 70's ? Tried to find it on the net .... but ...

I'm not entirely certain ... coulda been from the late 60's to mid 70's .... and I don't even remember if it was Penthouse, Playboy .... or maybe even 'Mayfair' ?

Don't know what became of it .... but for old  times sake /sentimental reasons (and a possible wank    :o  read ) ... even though it was only VERY  SOFT porn ... I wouldn't mind seeing it again.  Lost to the sands of time.   :(

I had a subscription for awhile, but now only buy them if the cover stories look interesting.  The last one I bought had an article about how the Valley of the Kings was in danger from all the tourists and other people who don't give a schitt about preserving awesome stuff. :P

I think it's interesting to see what people are into.  You can see sides of people that you might not have before.

Jess - I didn't know there was such a thing as Archaeology magazine.  I will have to check it out.  Being an Archaeologist was my childhood dream.  I used to subscribe to Smithsonian magazine thinking it would be that sort of thing, but it wasn't.


I subscribe to Glamour, Good Housekeeping, US and Self.  I don't really read any of them though.  I hate to say it but it's true.  I usually end up giving most of them to my sister.

It was interesting.  I guess I liked it...I just didn't love it.  I don't know if that makes sense or not.  I just didn't really feel the need to renew my subscription.  The magazine had a few good stories, but it was kind of thin.  It just wasn't what I expected it to be.

I had a subscription to a magazine service. I paid a flat fee and got something like 10 magazines and I could switch them at any time. Some of the ones I got:


Soap Opera Digest
Time
Omni
Discover
Fate
I Love Cats
Entertainment Weekly
Life

Several others I can't remember.

For my ex, there were Golf Digest & Penthouse. The funny thing was, when I went overseas, the magazines were still coming to me-in my name. I'm sure the people who got the mail wondered why I was getting Penthouse Magazine.  :D ;D ;D ;D


After that ran out, there were a few that continued with a subscription:

I Love Cats
Fate
Soap Opera Digest

But I let all of them run out. I was getting the History Channel Magazine for a short period of time but now, the only magazine that I read is Parade in the Sunday paper.

Carlos on the other hand gets Playboy & AARP.
