Reading Matter For The Weekend

At Last A Luxurious Arts And Belles Lettres Magazine You Can Afford: If you have zilch, it's yours: The SCREAMonline, full of goodies for your pleasure. There's Kenn Brown's 8.5 foot DNA illustration [Flash req.]; sober reflections on the fattening of America; the strangely beautiful and boring Mt.Wilson Tower cam; Michael Corrigan's Confessions of a Shanty Irishman; some classic quotations from Woody Allen and the likes; a selection of bizarre record covers - and much more that is lovely to look at and entertaining to read. It's not exactly FMR, but then, how could it be? A propósito, does anybody know of other rich coffee-table weblogs or online magazines that are worth reading and yet look good enough to leave lying around on one's monitor? ;) And isn't still amazing that there are still so many free luxury items on the Web? [Via woods lot, itself a superb left-of-field example of the genre, much as it might pain it to be so described.]

I've read this FPP thrice and I still have no idea what it's trying to say.

It's about an online magazine, lupus_yonderboy. You click on the links and you're magically transported to several of the articles contained therein. In my FPP, I recommend this magazine and then invite users to recommend other similarly interesting and good-looking magazines. I end by expressing our good fortune at having so many of them on the Web for free. As to my style, I tried to follow your own example of brevity, clarity and untortured syntax. And thus ends my Cliff's Notes effort for today.

"You click on the links and you're magically transported to several of the articles"

*gasp* Why, he's right! What will modern technology bring us next?

As an aside, if you follow the line of her gaze, you will see that the young lady at the bottom center of the Bizarre Record Covers link seems to be fascinated with whatever the gentleman to her right (your left) is holding in his lap.

Also on the subject of bizarre record covers.

Miguel, this is great, as usual, although you really should have taken more time and effort to spell out that we had to click on the links to see what was on these... what are they called... Web pages? As with many people already, I gravitated to the bizarre record covers. I think this album should instead have been titled: Caution - Men riding sawhorses while pretending to fellate extremely tall quadrupeds. Or is that what "swinging" means these days?

Mix & Match! This record cover goes perfectly with this editorial!

Oh, and follow the bizarre record covers links till you get to the mother lode, where there are larger versions of some of these plus occasional back sides (of the jackets, you pervs) and commentary!

i love Papotage, put out by the people who run Florent, a restaurant here. A different theme for each issue, and a good balance of visual and verbal.

Man, who could ever be cooler than Korla Pandit?
