I love reading magazines. I subscribed to over 20 magazines such as BusinessWeek, Vanity Fair, Forbes and Fortune.

What magazines do you like?

The Economist, The Week, National Review, Atlantic Monthly (so good its scary), The New Republic, Foreign Policy, Foreign Affairs, Top Gear (though they seem to hate every car!) and one guilty pleasure - Entertainment Weekly. Paris Match or Der Stern are fun sometimes just to see how crudely anti-American their covers can be.

You aren't an environmentalist by any chance, are you?

The Economist, Harper's, Atlantic, Foreign Affairs. Also check in with Mother Jones and The Nation periodically. A good deal more of my reading is online.

My favorite? Gun World, of course!;)

(To those not in the know, I edit that publication.)
Actually, this is one of my favorites as well. Also, Gourmet, Spin, Blender, Rolling Stone, Business Week, Kiplingers, Guns & Ammo, Architectural Digest, and Guitar Player.

Make, 2600, American Bungalow, Style 1900, American Scientific, Reason, Cinefex, The Wire, Future Music, Retro Gamer, Dr. Dobbs Journal, Servo, Linux Gazette

And, from the past:

Radio Electronics, Byte, Commodore Gazette, Compute!, Omni (sometimes)

Make, I think, is one of the greatest magazines ever published. If you are at all, interested in DIY, gadgets, or technology in general, it's a must read.

Almost forgot to add one I actually subscribe to: Invention & Technology :)

Car and Driver, Motorcyclist, and Cook's Illustrated. Dear Lord, Yckmwia and I have something in common. If everyone will excuse me, I believe I will now go and commit seppuku and reclaim my now soiled honor. (just kidding, just kidding)

The New York Review of Books, The Art of Eating (everyone who loves food--subscribe now! www.artofeating.com ), Mojo, Dwell, Historic New England, New Yorker, Journal of the Early Republic, The Public Historian

CT: Cook's Illustrated has probably run a comparison test on knives with which to commit seppuku.

Regular reader or subscriber of: Stereophile, BBC Music, Opera News, Arch Digest, GQ (new to this), Esquire, NYT, Smithsonian, Midwest Living, Wine Spectator, various law journals.

My favorite right now is Arch Digest. I'm just getting into that stuff, and, in the obsessive/compulsive male way, reading everything I can get my hands on. It was AD that convinced me that my future is not in my McMansion, but in some perfectly decorated apartment in NYC, Chicago, or DC.

My former obsession was Sterophile, but (after 10 years of collecting equipment) now I have a perfect system and I'm not interested in changing anything.

I think watches might be next:)

Actually, my favorite magazine of the moment is the eight DVD, eighty-year, collected New Yorker. Every page of every issue, and a good search engine to boot. A hell of a deal: it retails for $100, but one can easily find it discounted for half that. Who knew Louis Auchincloss only published three of his stories in New Yorker? There's a story behind that by God.

Check out https://www.audioasylum.com, and prepare for a nervous breakdown. I used to be into Stereophile and The Absolute Sound, but then I started working for a consumer electronics company testing audio gear, and a lot of that stuff sounds like nonsense now.

An even more expensive hobby than audio, and all you get is the time, with relative precision :)

I used to post on Audio Asylum. Those people drove me nuts. They combined the worst aspects of the hobby, squared by the anonymity of the internet.
