Give me some ideas for magazines to subscribe to. In the past I have subscribed to everything from comics to sports illustrated to maxim to rolling stone to seventeen to games to entertainment weekly to mad to etc. What's out there that I should be reading?

Grape Soda Today, Orange Soda Quarterly & The Fruit Punch Reader


Honestly, right now all I have is a Games subscription. I've been thinking about re-subscribing to Astronomy -- it often had some interesting articles and always had great shots of the universe (if that's your bag, baby)

I can only get Empire online, can you get it in Swedish? The only other one I read which is in French is Premiere.

I get the UK Empire delivered here. The annual subscription costs a little extra, but I've been indulging for years.

Cool, I'll have to look into that, thanks.

Right now I subscribe to Newsweek, EW, Car and Driver, and Esquire. Esquire's probably the most entertaining and has a nice mix of items, especially after I rip out the first 20 pages or so of "GQ-ish" ads.

I get an embarassing number of magazines--Mom was a big believer in giving gift subscriptions. I'm still trying to get Dad to let a bunch of these expire.

Esquire (and I agree with Knarf, this is a fave, and not just because an Iowa classmate is one of their writers at large)
Vanity Fair
New Yorker
Audubon
Birdwatcher's Digest
Backyard Bird
Birds & Blooms
Fine Cooking
Cooking Light
Bon Appetit
Gourmet
Cuisine at Home
Prevention
National Geographic

"Backyard Bird" sounds interesting.

If you play golf, Golf Digest is a good one. After a long enough subscription you can collect a pretty good library of golf tips. /golf geek out.

And The Sporting News always has some good insight if you're a stat guy.

Go back in time to around 1988 and get a two year subscription to Spy magazine. Then let it expire.

(Print is dead.)

Recently, I bought Glamour and Cosmopolitan for the first time in a while. God, I'd forgotten how cheesy the writing is. It made me appreciate Entertainment Weekly even more (I've subscribed to EW for many years). I'm consistently impressed with the quality of writing in EW.

This past summer I stayed at the house of a friend who subscribes to Smithsonian, and on several occasions I ended up taking it out of the can to finish an article. Seems like a decent endorsement. The magazine had interesting articles on a variety of topics.

Ooh, this gives me another chance to use one of my favorite quotes from The Big Chill - Jeff Goldblum (discussing his job for People magazine): "We only have one editorial rule: You can't write anything longer than the average person can read during the average crap."

Empire fail. Evidently I live on the wrong continent to subscribe.

Er, yeah, sorry about that. You must have some equivalent though, or do you only get shitty movie magazines over there.?

I occasionally buy Total Film at Borders but its ridiculously expensive to subscribe to. Entertainment Weekly is ok, I guess.
