When I was married we maintained two subscriptions so we'd not have to share. Marriage would no doubt have ended sooner had we tried to make due with just one sub.

the reporter who profiled guillermo del toro in this weeks issue seems a little over obsessed with his weight. like, comically so.

i think i've had a new yorker subscription for a decade now
lol old

xp i agree there were several descriptor details (not just weight stuff, cant remember off hand) that made me cringe

johnny crunch, Wednesday, 2 February 2011 03:43 (3 years ago) Permalink

It'll be a decade for me this summer. One of the first issues I got featured that Alex Ross article on Radiohead.

yeah just the constant status updates on his weight like it must be a sign of his anxiousness!!!

I'm on a $20-something subscription for one year, I randomly got a solicitation letter one day and was all, woah nice deal.

Lamp, Wednesday, 2 February 2011 16:21 (3 years ago) Permalink

Well, then she'll thumb through the first 20 pages or so and see a bunch of listings for upcoming local NY events, so I guess I can sort of see it. I'm trying to give my mam the benefit of the doubt, dudes

when people ask me that i just tell them the nyer has hilarious cartoons and that's why i subscribe

i tell them it's for nancy franklins incisive tv criticism

i need to know consumer goods prices from patricia marx

johnny crunch, Wednesday, 2 February 2011 19:49 (3 years ago) Permalink

what is up with patricia marx anyway?

horseshoe, Wednesday, 2 February 2011 19:51 (3 years ago) Permalink

she's working it on the avenue

partricia marx stuff is just crazy. how long has she been writing for the magazine?

just sayin, Wednesday, 2 February 2011 19:52 (3 years ago) Permalink

sometimes it's funny, but most of the time I start reading it without paying attention and start thinking, when is this interesting article about shopping going to get to the point? Then I notice it's her article and I realize it's just going to be 3 more pages of gift prices and snarky comments.

dan selzer, Wednesday, 2 February 2011 20:13 (3 years ago) Permalink

ugh fuckin hate patricia marx

congratulations (n/a), Wednesday, 2 February 2011 20:14 (3 years ago) Permalink

partricia marx stuff is just crazy. how long has she been writing for the magazine?

feel like shes been writing the xmas issue 'upper west siders buy shit' article since i started reading the mag in high school but google says 1989

sometimes i half enjoy the ivy league legacy types @ the new yorker but marx is p worthless & unfunny

Prom Dressantino 2011 (Lamp), Wednesday, 2 February 2011 20:17 (3 years ago) Permalink

yeah but as bad as she is, even she isn't as unfunny and uninteresting as shouts and murmurs routinely is.

الله basedأكبر (forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 2 February 2011 20:31 (3 years ago) Permalink

do people find the woody allen shouts & murmurs funny? i can barley get through those and they're only like a page long.

and patricia marx articles are the only ones i skip by byline alone.

Moreno, Wednesday, 2 February 2011 20:41 (3 years ago) Permalink

i wonder why i don't spend more time being enraged by patricia marx, the way i do with nancy franklin? it's like i forget she exists as soon as i see her byline and think "wtf?"

horseshoe, Wednesday, 2 February 2011 20:43 (3 years ago) Permalink

I don't mind Nancy Franklin.

I loved Woody Allen growing up, but his S + M stuff is terrible. Maybe it's no different and I'm the one who changed. I love Jack Handey and a few others. Every few issues there's a S + M that I think is pretty funny.

dan selzer, Wednesday, 2 February 2011 20:55 (3 years ago) Permalink

Did not know that Ben McGrath was only 34.

Tyler/Perry's "Dude (Looks Like a Lady)" (jaymc), Wednesday, 2 February 2011 21:04 (3 years ago) Permalink

I'm not sure that I've ever laughed, even internally, at Shouts + Murmurs. Not even Woody Allen, and I love that guy.

Z S, Wednesday, 2 February 2011 21:05 (3 years ago) Permalink

this was good - What I imagined the people around me were saying when I was...

sad to see bob odenkirk being unfunny in last weeks S&M.

Moreno, Wednesday, 2 February 2011 21:29 (3 years ago) Permalink

it's like trying to be funny at a funeral; the location makes things more difficult.

Simon Rich has a lot of funny ones:

I don't care for any of those really.

الله basedأكبر (forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 2 February 2011 21:33 (3 years ago) Permalink

but that's me i guess.

الله basedأكبر (forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 2 February 2011 21:33 (3 years ago) Permalink

i don't even bother w/ "shouts & murmurs" anymore

gr8080, Wednesday, 2 February 2011 21:37 (3 years ago) Permalink

I like a enough of them. Maybe you guys aren't "new yorker" enough. Maybe Hawaii and New Jersey have their own funny magazines for your sensibilities.
