Help me order a magazine subscription for a pre-teen girl. I know she reads and enjoys the "bubblegum" teen magazines her mother buys for her occasionally, but I think they're mindless crap. [more inside]

I am curious about the meaning of an image listed as one of the Top 40 magazine covers of the past 40 years
. Specifically, what was the meaning behind magazine cover #37, which is a Wired from June 1997 with an Apple Computer logo wrapped in what appears to be barbed wire, along with the word "Pray." What does the barbed wire signify? Why are we being told to "pray." ? [more inside]

I'm founding a small magazine, with some friends. What software should we use to lay out the magazine? I think we want something like Quark. It needs to be freeware, 'cause we're starting out really small, with minimal income (we'll just cover printing).

Help me find a gift for my 55 yr. old mother that will help her begin to wonder of her own thoughts and wishes, and think that just maybe she could be a force of her very own in this world.

Glossy magazine paper!
I need to buy the same kind of paper that typical, nicely-put together magazines use, within the next 2 days. [more inside]

I have tons of magazines. They are my facvorite thing...each week I buy about 5-10. I am wondering if anyone has any great shelving for magazines or just great examples of storage that I can see online? I'm really looking for a great home office type solution. I read ReadyMade every month hoping to my find my dream solution but never do. Does anyone have any sites they recommend?

As a teenage writer I was thrilled when my first article was published by the Toronto Pet User's Group (TPUG). It was a review of Summer Games by Epyx
in all its sprite goodness on the Commodore 64.
Flash forward and I cannot find the copy in my files. I've attempted to contact the TPUG folks
, but haven't had any luck.
My attempts even included Usenet, but go there either.
Lately I've been watching eBay for TPUG magazine sales, but haven't been able to find the right issue.
I need to find the TPUG Magazines from 1984 and have someone locate the article for me. At this point I'd take a handheld scan of it, but the original would be awesome.
Does anyone have any old issues, know where to find them or know someone in the TPUG organization that can help?

Are free business magazines worth it? Magazines.com
and a couple of other websites are offerring free magazines to "qualified subscribers." Has anyone signed up before? Do these magazines generally have valuable content or are they created just to gather names and addresses for advertisers?

: our marketing/communications department has had a Communication Arts subscription for a while now. The past few issues seem to have taken it into a new editorial direction. Much less inspiring stuff there. Is there some hot new contender that we should look at subscribing to instead? We'd probably only get just one.

While reading this thread
I began, for obvious reasons, to consider expanding my media collection. I have plenty of books, but I have virtually no magazines around the house. As I looked over potential subscriptions I realized that I know almost nothing about the world of magazines (outside of what I have learned from my dentist's waiting room). Do any of you have any recommendations?

Would like to get my wife a cooking magazine subscription for Xmas. They all look the same to me! She is a serious cook, scoffs as kitchen gadgetry, and is only sort-of interested in wine. Help!

Magazine Filter: How does one get past issues of magazines without going through the publisher? I'm looking for the April 2004 issue of Esquire Magazine. The publisher takes 2-3 weeks to ship past issues... is there a better/faster way I'm missing?

OK -- Regan does at roughly 3:00pm Saturday. Monday at roughly 2:00, the obituary issue of Time magazine arrives in my mailbox. Question: How in god's name did they do that? Even if if they had the issue sitting on pallets waiting to go (which they didn't because there was non-Regan material in there) how did they get the USPS to deliver it on the next business day?

UK-dwelling or motorcycle enthusiast MeFites may be able to help on this one. I'm coming up with nothing in my search for information about a magazine about motorcycle touring that's based in Bristol, England. I believe the title is Motorcycle Ventures, but that could be wrong. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

I know I saw a feature in a recent magazine, which I thought was Entertainment Weekly, but now I can't find it again. It was a full page of photos of regular people from around the nation, and they had asked each person to name the movie they most wanted to see that never came to their town -- "Capturing the Friedmans" was named, among others. Has anyone seen this feature, and if so, can you tell me which magazine it was in? We get a LOT of magazines, so if not EW it could have been in Esquire, People, Vanity Fair, etc. Any help will be much appreciated!
