someone once told me that i was dumb for majoring in communications; their reason being that by the time I graduated from college the world of publication would be deserted. I mean at first I believed them mainly because the internet has taken over EVERYTHING. "feel my pain u lyin" IF that were true that would mean all industries would suffer including Advertising, Marketing, and all the companies that invest in these services. THEREFORE i dont believe it to be true. Above you see pix of a portion of my magazine collection. All handled with care. My favorites include Missbehave, VIBE, and of course VOGUE. I hope to work for them one day. I think I study VOGUE more than I do my school books. SAD i know? Guys do me a favor...take care of your zines....BTW im very excited...By the end of the semester I plan to have a zine of my own...LOL i doubt it will come out how I am expecting but its worth a shot.Anyway im preparing myself for another Champagne Chronic Nightmare (Solange) tonight.

Whoever told you that majoring in Communications was a mistake, their wrong. No matter how bad the economy is, people will still buy newspaper and magazines, whether it's the actual paper/magazine or an online subscription. Sales for advertisements might be down but that will only be for so long. And nice collection of magazines! Lovin' the new Vibe with 'Ye on the cover.

i mean internet blogs are biting a chunk out of the magazine industry, but magazines are more than what most think. its an art form. like people who read Monocle Magazine. 1/2 of em aren't even interested in the articles they just read because how great the design is. The layout of it is amazing. You should google or ebay vintage Vanity Fair magazines. They are beautiful. They look more like a piece of art than an magazine. My fav mags are fucking hard as fuck to find though.
