Magazine trendspotting

Magzine trendspotting:“Pop culture critic” Cary Darling of the Dallas Ft. Worth Star Telegram, does a round-up of some new (and not-so-new) magazines he thinks are cool, many of which have been mentioned here previously. As apparently dictated in the “guidelines and bye-laws” of the organization, “Reporters Who Once In A While Write About Magazines,” (RWOIAWWAM), there are plenty of quotes from Samir Husni in the article.

Cary starts the article out with this opening sentence: “Isn’t the printed word supposed to be going the way of the $1.50 gallon of gas?” I’ll skip the fisking and merely share Cary’s “Top 26” (which is a great example of reporter-math, as there are 37 magazines on the list) of the magazines he thinks are worthy. If I didn’t have anything better to do, I’d link to each one. However, if you want to purchase a subscription to any of them, here’s a rexblog contextual commerce link to a place you can do so and allow the rexblog to become a revenue generating machine:

    The Star Telegram is in Fort Worth, and always has been. Dallas’ only daily newspaper is the Dallas Morning News. There’s a world of difference (and 30 miles) between the cities.

    I stand corrected. My apologies.
