The wife thinks I am a magazine junkie. On some Thursdays or Fridays, our mailbox is filled with different periodicals. I don't even have time to read through them all, yet I have to count to 20 sometimes to stop from adding a new subscription to the list. Here is some of my magazine history.
1. Sports Illustrated-A natural, its the bible of sports reporting, or at least the bible that has the most customers.
2.The Sporting News-While I still get this magazine, it was much better when I was a kid. It came in newspaper variety instead of the glossy version of today and it was the only place I could get all sorts of stats before the internet existed.
3 & 4-Time and Newsweek-Time was first, but I find Newsweek to be a bit better. I think there is a tad less slant to the right to it.
5.A Taste of Home-Some great recipes, but, they also seem to be very very fattening recipes.
6.Maxim-The King of the non nudie men's magazine. I still have the Anna Kournikova and Christina Aguilera editions stored safely in a box in my basement.
7.Rolling Stone-I think I started getting the subscription just before it really began to suck. Though it still feels like a magazine for my father and not me.
8.PSM-A Unofficial Playstation Magazine, that used to be great once a month for some game samples. Plus they had some good reviews. I am in a holding pattern until I get my hands on a PS3, so I have let this one lapse.
9.ESPN-Yes, Another sports magazine, big and glossy. I think I might be a tad to old for this magazine, because there are a lot of times that I feel smarter then the actual articles.
10.Electronic Gaming Monthly-It has since become Games for Windows. IMO the best magazine for games for your PC. Not only do they tell you what sucks, they had a great editorial last month about how computer developers are making games that the computers right now are too slow for.
11.Blender-A men's Magazine for music. But ladies, don't run from the magazine, its the new Rolling Stone, since they have embraced the Itunes generation by telling you what songs to download individually. Plus, yes, the chicks are hot.
12.Everyday with Rachael Ray-The great recipes of Rachael Ray, without the annoying perky voice in your face.
13.Cosmopolitan-Mrs Duck actually got this magazine, though we kept getting it even after we started living together, because my cousin, Bowdoin, was writing for them. Now that she has moved to Fitness, I think the 30 tips for great sex issue wont be showing up in the mailbox.
