New Subject Matter

I'll admit that I am one to read gossip magazine. Heck, I even watched an episode of "Gossip Girl" because I thought it would be about gossip--well interesting gossip, not gossip about a bunch of spoiled teenagers who could order drinks like martinis without getting carded.

But these magazines need new subject matter. For a few years now, it's the same cover. Some celebrity who is too skinny, anorexic. And if they aren't anorexic, they've gained too much weight. Another one has drank way too much or popped too many pills and have landed themselves in a posh rehab center. One celebrity wore a dress 40 percent better than another one.

Now I see why most normal people are turned off by these "news" updates. It's the same thing. How have I failed to see that it really isn't all that important? Or is it time that I start buying better magazines to place by the toilet?


  • There are only three kinds of magazines a man should have by his toilet: 1) trade papers for whatever industry the man works in; 2) SI; 3) girly magazines.

  • For toilet reading, I recommend Reader's Digest. As much as I loathe tabloids, I take a peek for the latest crap. After a few minutes I'm usually dizzy and toss it away. Happy reading!

  • I think this is a sign of maturity Angel, and the time is now to upgrade your magazines. I recommend Playboy.

  • Yeah those gossip magazines are just starting to repeat themselves. It's no wonder that I don't bother buying them anymore and just flip through them at the bookstore. I get through them pretty quickly now though.

  • I used to read them sometimes...then I started thinking I should be reading things that made me feel better when I was done reading them.izbcum

  • I borrow them from friends to read whilst on the treadmill at the gym to keep me occupied. I would never spend money on such filth. In fact, i'd prefer if I could concentrate on a book while on the bloody machines, but alas I cannot.

  • Yeah, I could live with the whole documenting of celebrity lives stopping!

  • I stopped buying those gossip magazines long ago ... (although I confess to having a flick through them at the news stand !!!).
    HOpe you are well, Angel.
    Take care, Meow

  • After a short while, I grow tired of hearing about all the celebs drinking problems. One should allways stick to the classics for bathroom literature; Readers Digest and Nudie Mags.

  • Playboy needs to pay Britney, Paris, and Lohan enough to pose for a giant drunken, pill poppin' naked orgy so the media will get over their fascination with this trio and move on.

  • OK is an upscale version of those rags
    national inquirer, this doubles as toilet paper

  • you could use Britney, Lindsey, and Paris' face to wipe with!! :)

    My favorite magazines are Tennis, and Sports Illustrated, but from time to time I will read People.

    have a good one

  • I love my mindless crap magazines. After reading, I feel really good to have such a normal life then feel bad because I can't fit in any of the clothes the celebrities wear!

    I have a shallow life.

  • I read Wired magazine in the toilet. And a current issue of the district paper where I live called the Midtown Post. That's not an advice. It's me parading my geek all over the place. ;-) Take care, Angel.
