I Think I Have A Magazine Problem (AKA Whatcha Readin'?)
I have what my girlfriend calls a "magazine fetish." If i could ingest them and live off the print dye i would.
Since I know longer have the time really or the patience to sit through an entire book (sad, i know), I love finding magazines with short-form or long-form articles and stories.
I love well-written magazines that tell me something about worlds I never knew existed or other parts of them I have yet to explore or know about.
I just read my first Popular Science and it's the best layman's guide to cutting edge science and awesome random new discoveries I have seen in a while. I also love and usually read every week/bi-week/month:
Time (for my slight left news bent)
Newsweek (for my slight right news bent)
Game Informer (horrible review scoring system, but great for real game info and fun facts about game culture)
Retro Gamer (Amazing English magazine investigating the tales and folklore of early videogames, old reviews, new revies of old games, stories behind the making of immortal games and tons of other fun stuff)
Rolling Stone (love the random fascinating stories and the political writing, Matt Taibbi is our generation's Hunter Thompson)
Atlantic (A new discovery for me, just a nice selection of information and viewpoints)
The Economist (Pretty much a magazine not meant to be read cover to cover, each issue would take a month to read, but argueably the best print magazine detailing the best of the world's stories politically, financially and culturaly)
National Geographic (The best cultural photography each month, and some great scientific stories and discoveries)
Adbusters (The "Fight Club" of magazines, just an interesting artistic dissection of one topic each month, culture jamming, and ways to mess with modern society and possibly, maybe, make it a better and more caring place)
What's some of the magazines you read? I'm always looking for more, more, MORE!
