Musings of the Day: Do You Read Magazines?

Musings of the Day Mags

Damn, I’m trying to remember this magazine I used to read when I was in high school. YA, Y&A, something along those lines…it was one of those magazines that features the typical beauty, interview, etc…dealio and had one of those embarrassing story sections.

I believe those stories were completely made up and false. They were too damn crazy to be real. There were stories along the lines of “I was swimming at my best friend’s pool and my super cute crush was there, when I dived into the pool my tampon flew out and floated next to his head…OMGZ I was so embarrassed” or “My boyfriend and I were having a hot and heavy make out section when I suddenly farted!”

I totally wanted to write a fictional embarrassing story and have it published.

Granted, embarrassing shiz happens all the time but some of these were SUPER far out.

Which brings me to my Musings of the Day….

Do you still read magazines?

Or are you an online media whore?

Do you get the latest celeb news, beauty launches, and womanly advice from both mags, blogs, and sites?

Jump!

I can’t honestly say I’ve read a magazine in a while outside of Heavy Metal and Doctor Who Magazine both of which I read like they are the holy bible and they’ll save my soul. I have a backlog of both which dates back well into the early 70′s and 80′s, yeah, I’m a pack rat.

I was always rather big on Japanese Beauty mags as well until recently.

I will say I am jealous of magazines who have access to the latest and greatest far more advanced than we lowly bloggers do. Public Relation teams make it pretty difficult to weasel information for upcoming collections out of them but freely give it to magazines which I personally believe is kinda a dying breed.

Do you read ‘em?

Depend on all your info from websites and blogs?

Do share!

    Y&M! I think it used to be called Young & Modern, and then just Y&M, and now it probably doesn’t exist. I love Lucky magazine though. I love magazines. I can’t take the internet into the bath tub with me. OK, I guess I can, but I like magazines.

    I don’t read magazines at all. I’ll sometimes browse over them when I’m in line at a store but they always seem really dumb lol. So I’m definitely a online media whore lol, TMZ app for my celeb news, and I circle a few sites for my skincare and makeup news :)

    YM! That was a good magazine. Sassy, however, was the best. A lot of teen mags changed their formats to copy Sassy.

    I read several magazines. I get Lucky ( ;) ), All You, & People Style Watch. I used to get Instyle & Allure too.

    Those are just the “girly” ones. I used to get Dreamwatch (when they were still printing it), BtVS & Angel, Realms of Fantasy off & one, & Locus. I love Locus (news magazine for sci fi, fantasy, & horror writers/readers), but it’s almost $70 a year for a subscription and I just don’t read as much as I used to. :(

    Hahah I am a magazine whore and a makeup blog whore…so Im just a big ol slutbag. But yeah I still read them. I LOVE Instyle, People Style watch, Lucky, Glamour, and now that I am getting a little older (the ripe of age of almost 28) I get decorator magazines too like Martha Stewart and Southern Living. I love them. I love online media and I love things like the Kindle and Nook, but there is something awesome about being able to put in post its, take a picture to the hairdresser, hold the pages in your hand etc. I also enjoy blogs like yours because I can find out what is up and coming. The people at our Bath and Body works cant figure out why I always know what is coming out before they do. :)

Haha such as…..I was at the mall, and I saw my number one crush and didnt realize I had spinach in my teeth…then I farted.

    Hey Muse, I think the mag you are thinking of was YM? I am the biggest mag junkie. I stalk the newstands the day they come out, also now I get about 6 different ones that come to my house. I pretty much get them for the beauty and fashion but it is entertaining to read the funny advise in some of them. I love blogs(yours #1) because you get to see new stuff everyday and there is always something to read unlike mags where its only once a month or so. Although there is something special and exciting about getting a mag and flipping through it. I guess Im a blog and mag junkie. :)

    Was that magazine YM? It stood for “Young & Modern”, and then changed to “Your Magazine”, and then it like died or something. I loved that magazine! And I totally remember the embarassing moments stories.

    Are you thinking of YM? I think it stood for young miss for a long time, before rebranding itself as young & modern. I used to read that in high school, although old-school Sassy was always my favourite! I used to read tooonnnnnnnnns of magazines… it’s only recently that I’ve stopped wasting money on them, because the information I got from them was always at least a month behind in comparison to the blogosphere. I trust bloggers more than I trust editors, anyway.

    I read magazines! I love them! I prefer them to looking at things online because they often have closeups of products and I can stare at them and refer back to images without using electricity!

    I subscribe to Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, and recently Allure because the beauty section of Elle and Bazaar is way too skimpy for me.

    On the other hand, I love reading blogs, like yours, for the reliable reviews and information. Especially in the beauty section of magazines, how do I know if a certain product was sponsored to be featured? I also love blogs for featuring products from other countries. That’s how I found out about BB creams!

    I do still read magazines, just because it’s nice to have something you can hold in your hands sometimes. And it has pretty glossy pictures. :) But for useful beauty reviews and upcoming products, I definitely rely on blogs and Make Up Alley. I also read Gothic Beauty but really that is purely an inspirational magazine, not a whole lot of useful information there either.

    I like the tactile pleasure of having a magazine to flip through while enjoying coffee outside on a nice day…..but I don’t actually have many magazines and *hate* those shitty ones with the recycled stories and “tips” (like Cosmo). Currently I’m only subscribed to two magazines (Fight! and AllYou), which is two more than I’ve had in the last ten years.

    Magazines *are* a dying breed (as you said), but what makes me sad is the dying breed of good writers and real journalists. I’m sick of fluff and reading the same tired story five times full of plot holes and spelling errors.

    Lol – those “embarrassing story” sections are the same now as they were twenty years ago! Just the way they’re written has changed. Either we’re all out of embarrassment, or nobody sends anything new in anymore.

He seemed to think I should try harder. I think since I’m not actually writing mass-read blogs that it’s ok my stuff is a little messy. :p

        Your typos are never glaring, Muse! Everything is always well written and I love the personality that flows through the screen when reading your posts. It’s as if we’re all having a conversation instead of posts being chucked out like ads (I’ve noticed several bloggers just seem to post a photo of a product in its packing without a review, swatch, or really anything beyond the photo and where to buy…shameful really to still call it a blog at that point). :)

    I still read magazines AND am also an online media whore.

    I am so old school in that I like the glossy pages and even like to look at the ads (which I HATE on the internet). I especially like mags around the fall and holidays. And of course, I keep them in my bathroom. However, as far as beauty articles go– I just always feel as if the mag editors are just promoting advertisers. It’s hard to believe them. Its almost comical to read what makeup the cover model is “‘supposedly” wearing (usually Cover Girl, a main advertiser– puleze!).

    I way more rely on my Muse.

    I did an internship for a teen magazine ages ago, and those stories are somewhat true. People would send them in, and they’d be embellished to be more outrageous.
    We were all convinced the already outrageous ones were either made up, or embellished to be outrageous so it would get printed.

    I wouldn’t buy gossip mags or read gossip websites if it wasn’t for my undying love for Angelina Joile (huge fan since 1995). I remember when hardly anyone knew who she was then, around 2000 it was like Bam! and then she was everywhere. I’ll pretty much buy any mag she graces the cover of like Vogue, Vanity Fair, etc and only gossip mags if there are lots of photos of her. The stories mean nothing to me.

    I recently subscribed to Allure again after many years. It’s my favorite because it’s an actual beauty mag, there’s no sex quizzes or crap like that.

    I will also buy anything that Green Day or Rise Against are on the cover of, my two all time favorite bands. I have every single Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel magazine except for just a few issues (hello, eBay!). I have too many flippin magazines in my life!

    I used to read so many magazines in my teens years, wanted to keep updating about latest beauty news , fashion or celebs gossip! Now I rarely touch those only when I’m in a book shop or a waiting room in a clinic or whatever… Plus with new technology such as Internet, there’s no need to buy anymore, so it’s good to save money, there’s e -magazine to download at such a cheap prices and so many free webs about celebrities gossip and beauty blogs now!

    I read YM and Seventeen when I was a girl, and I used to sneek my Mom’s Cosmo back in the day! That was very interesting reading for a 14 year old! LOL

    I read some online, but I still subscribe to a lot of magazines. I have been able to score some of my favorites dirt cheap, and take advantage of the ‘get 2 years for the price of one’ sales. Amazon has really great sales sometimes.

    I love to read, and life is so crazy busy right now, I have a hard time picking up a book. Magazines lets you ‘read’ and finish a story or an article in little clusters of time you may find.

    Plus I can donate my older issues to my local library, which they sell for a quarter to others who want to read them. Or I bring a few to my YMCA for others to read.

    Now for the embarrassing moments.. are you guys getting some of them confused with Redbook? I don’t remember YM being so racy! But then again I am a dinasor around here.. and most of the beauty ideas were squishing berries for blush and rubbing dirt on our eyelids for color ;)

The embarrassing story and “Ask YM” sections were the worst – “So……my best friend is like, always hitting on my boyfriend. I asked her to stop, but she says she’s just flirting – what do I do??”

    As a former intern I can say you’re all correct.
    Young Miss was shortened to YM
    Then to modernize it, YM then stood for Young & Modern
    In it’s later years (Early 2000′s) it was again changed and stood for Your Magazine.
    In retrospect, I’m sad it folded because I felt like it filled a void the other teen magazines didn’t fill. Sort of like Sassy. Sassy filled the void for the girls who weren’t interested in cheerleading and baking cookies.

    Guilty as charged for reading magazines. I subscribe to Vogue, In Style, Lucky, Cosmo, Allure, and Glamour. I read all types of blogs right along with them on a daily basis. I look to both sources for beauty news and products and for inspiration and products to weite about in my own blog. Often, I wish I was a beauty editor and had access to their beauty closets.

    I can’t give up either the mags or the blogs. I just wish there was more time in the day! I cut back my subscriptions this year, now it’s just Allure, Marie Claire, Cosmo, Wired, and Sunset. No more celebrity rags, lol! The blogs are more niche and have betterr practical info like swatches. Also, where else am I going to see Asian skin care reviews? Vogue? No chance!

    have loved magazines since I was a kid then it was comcs, now Allure, vogue, Instyle, People Style WAtch,
    Used to read the cooking and decorating ones but not so much anymore, Just read Elle on my iPad and that was really fun, loving the ability to zoom in on the page which as I get older is much appreciated; although the pricing isnt

    YM (Young Miss) was the best…there was another that dealt in music (forget the name) but I drove my mom crazy with the pinups of christian slater / tom cruise/ kevin costner / and hair bands like nelson twins – poison – cinderella …all over my walls :) of course this is back in the days when they were all still “young” and cute lol guess my age is showing….
    Instyle / cosmo/ glamour / Allure are my currents…
