Larry, you make me laugh.  :)

I do? That's nice to hear. Thank you!

Speaking of Nimrod in yesterday's posts, I cannot believe that Oaf has the same name as one of the most glorious and moving pieces of music ever written!

I was thinking the same thing.  :)

It was your "Weekly Reader" comment that brightened my morning.  ;)

I forgot to include Show Music on that list. I think I have every copy. I've saved those longer than the cooking magazines. I still get Bon Appetit, but it's not really for reading any more. The articles are often just two sentences, some pictures and some recipes.

TOD - Talk of THE WEEKLY READER, which I loved when I was a kid, reminded me that Richard and I now subscribe to THE WEEK, which is kind of like a grown-up version of TWR.  We also get TIME and NEWSWEEK, but I often don't have the patience for some of their long, detailed articles.

BK, I know the collapsing of the neswpapers, both in size and quality, is tough, but people just aren't buying them or magazines much anymore and they are all fighting for survival.  Though our local paper is pretty much crap, I still subscribe because I like to hold a physical paper at the breakfast table.  The saddest part, of course, is that newspapers are no longer strong independent voices for news and people rely on the 24-hour faux news stations in cableland.  Clowns like Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck have replaced the Walter Cronkites and Edward R. Murrows of the news world.

TOD:  In my house, we subscribed to LIFE, LOOK, and THE SATURDAY EVENING POST and I looked at them every week.  As Elmore mentioned, we had the WEEKLY READER in school.  My dad bought PLAYBOY and it was on the coffee table for all to peruse -- he saw nothing dirty in the nude female form.   I later subscribed to it from the 1980's for about 20 years, finally stopping when it started reviewing video games and the playmates could be my daughter.  Since high school, I used to buy TV GUIDE every week and marked the movies I wanted to watch.  When it changed format and got so unwieldy with all the cable channels, I just stopped.

As a teenager, I was heavily into Edgar Rice Burroughs and subscribed to several fanzines.  My grandfather gave me a gift subscription to CIVIL WAR ILLUSTRATED.  For awhile my dad had subs to shortlived magazines like SHOW BUSINESS ILLUSTRATED & SHOW and I still have several copies.  I used to read any Theatre magazines and FILMS IN REVIEW in the library.  I used to buy AFTER DARK on the newstand until it finally just got so blatantly gay, it wasn't worth it for the theatre articles.  I used to subscribe to PLAYS INTERNATIONAL, a British Theatre magazine, and pick up another, PLAYS & PLAYERS whenever I saw it on the newstand.  I also used to subscribe to BIBLIO, a magazine about book collecting, now defunct, I believe.   My mother has long given me a Birthday subscription to CINCINNATI MAGAZINE.  Since she passed away this year, I guess I'll have to renew it myself.  In high school, our history teacher made us subscrbe to either NEWSWEEK or TIME.  I choose TIME.  For awhile there was a revival of LIBERTY MAGAZINE (both new and old articles) and I used to buy that.  And I used to buy the late Richard Valley's SCARLET STREET.  Belonging to AFI, I used to get the now-defunct AMERICAN FILM.   One of my joys when I lived on Yucca in LA was walking my dog, Hotspur, down to the newstand on Cahuenga between Hollywood and Sunset Blvds. several times a week.

The magazines for which I currently have subscriptions are CINCINNATI MAGAZINE, MYSTERY SCENE MAGAZINE, THE DRAMATIST (as a member of Dramatist Guild), AMERICAN THEATRE (as a member of American Theatre), WRITTEN BY (as a member of the WGA),  SOUTHERN THEATRE (as a member of Southeastern Theatre Conference), THE WEEK, and THE BURROUGHS BULLETIN (as a member of The Burroughs Bibliophiles).

I have several boxes of old magazines on theatre, books, film, and history as well as several I've saved for various articles or memorabilia (Kennedy assasination, etc.)

TOD - Theatre Week, Show Music, and In Theatre (I think it was called).  I still have my Sunset Blvd copy of Theatre Week, the rest I think I got rid of in one of my moves.

bk - Many newspapers have "downsized" to "tabloid size" over the past couple of years.  Usually the change in format is done for economic and "green" factors.  Alas, if the quality of the content goes down too, well, that's a totally different matter.

I think my first memory of actually plunking down money for a magazine was MAD.  Then I did Famous Monsters of Filmland pretty regularly and all the MAD ripoffs like Help, Sick, Panic, etc, as well as those magazines in the mid-1950s that printed lyrics to songs. 

In the 1960s I didn't do much with magazines, I think, save for Theatre Arts - I didn't buy it regularly but I did get the occasional issue and loved it.  I, too, bought Show Business Illustrated and Show when I'd see them at the newsstand.

My regular magazine buying habit began around 1969.  Like Pogue, TV Guide every week, circling the movies I needed to watch.  I subscribed to both Time and Newsweek for a while.  I also did the New Yorker and New York for a while.  I did Gourmet for a year, I think.  Then came the cinema magazines - I became obsessive about doing complete runs, and I had Films and Filming, Films in Review, Sight and Sound, all pretty much complete, plus some oddball publications like The Velvet Light Trap and several other short-lived film mags.  I still have lots of those.  In the 1980s the quality of everything declined and I stopped buying and subscribing.  I held out with TV Guide until the cable came and then I couldn't make sense of it anymore.

I did read Show Music and Theatre World (then In Theatre) regularly because they frequently reviewed my albums.

Good afternoon, all! Happy birthday, DR Jane!

TOD:
I used to read "Reader's Digest" regularly at my grandparents' home, and the occasional "Mad" from whichever friend had a copy. We had a "Highlights" subscription when I was a kid, and I periodically leafed through my father's "Smithsonian."

I subscribed to the Sondheim Review for a while, but let that lapse for some reason. Ditto with my "Games" subscription (although I sometimes pick up a copy at the newsstand: we need more cryptic crossword writers on this side of the pond). Currently, I only get the New York Times magazine, which, while shrunk, does still have pretty decent articles (and a fun rotation of food series).

BK:  I'm going to say this here rather than at FilmScoreMonthlyMessageboard:

I was really saddened by what I read in that "Lost Horizon" thread (the earlier pages).  Cliff is "out there" at the best of times and a bit of a manic depressive when times aren't great for him.  I wasn't prepared for the ugliness of his rants.  I don't think he's really attuned to discourse on the internet.  It's easy enough to call him on stuff he says when talking live but he lacks finesse when he's disagreed with.

Sorry if you felt I was siding with him despite the earlier posts.  The only reason I entered the thread was because I saw his name as the last person who posted (at the time I saw the thread near the top of the thread list).   

Much of what he said, of the personal nature, is really not something I expected from him OF ALL PEOPLE.  He was actually describing himself, except substituting the word "soundtrack" for whatever it is he's into these days.  There's quite a bit of self-loathing that comes out in his written rants/rages.  I'm sorry anyone had to see that.

And...given all that I read later last night...I'm not at all sorry he won't be sharing his thoughts with us on film and film music.

Topic of the Day:  I used to subscribe to TV Guide, but gave up on the print version when they changed the size and on-line version was much better, anyway.  Also, for several years, I used to subscribe to the monthly Playbill magazine.  Again, I stopped when I was getting more information from the on-line website.  I started getting Show Music probably four or five years before it ended and I'm a charter subscriber to The Sondheim Review.  Those are all the magazines that I've ever gotten.
