Condé Nast Publication’s 2009 Magazine Lineup

August 13, 2009

There are many who have stated that print media is dying. Well, it is, but let’s not let that spoil its last breaths. CondéNast, pusher of fine magazines everywhere has spent the last several years perfecting its lineup, trying to pinpoint exact demographics in hopes of a sale. How exact? See for yourself.

The adult bookstore hadn't been the same since Rudy Giuliani took over

  1. Fine publications all (with the possible exception of that damned Soylent Green rag!)

    Phrenology today is a personal favourite. Damned lost art if you ask me.

    Excellent post (once again) CLT. I suspect your skull must be one interesting read.


  2. Don forgot to mention that he also subscribes and submits to AARP Swimsuit Issues.

    Dateless Wonder Personals competes with http://www.Craigslist.org

    • CC! Great to see you.

      The subscription was understandable but submitting? Oh. My. Various Sumerian dieties.

      Excellent point on craigslist. No wonder everyone is always unhappily suing them.

      Thanks for visiting, Claire.

  3. Is Olestra the stuff that makes you poop a little everytime you sit down or walk?

    • It sure is. Also coughing, sneezing, laughing, burping or moving upright from a reclining or seated position (you know, like getting up from the toilet you’ve been on all day).

      Great to see you, TL.

  4. Tablatures for Jethro Tull You’re killing me CLT. What, no mag for Clive F**king Cussler? Funny as always.

    • Hey, FJ! Great to see your nomadic face again.

      Those tablatures come with stage directions as well, so you can properly prance and mince in a somewhat metal fashion.

      Did I omit Clive F. Cussler? Must be an oversight due to our panicky legal team, whose Vicodin has just run out.

      Ceast-and-desist order? Sounds like a dare to me.

  5. I was sad to see Capitalist Lion Tamer weekly or journal or times or digest. Also I’m thinking of signing up my son for Hustler Jr. This seems like the best way to avoid an awkward conversation.

    • The CLT publishing plans are still up in the air, what with my constant mockery of print journalism.

      However, Hustler Jr. will do nicely. The mag’s motto is: “The Best Way to Avoid an Awkward Conversation.”

      Have fun with it, RR.

  6. I’m already elbow deep!

    • Is that the yearly bonus issue? That’s an incredibly descriptive title. I imagine it sells well. They always do.
