PostSubject: irritating part of reading magazines   Wed Jul 29, 2009 1:39 pm

what do you guys think the most irritating part of reading magazines?

for me, i feel it is the advertisement part.. every few pages i turn, there will be a HUGE. DISTRACTING. advertisement lurking behind the pages waiting for me. Sometimes, these advertisements are veiled as articles, but still, these advertisements seriously take up huge space in those magazines i buy.

if you don't believe me, buy a copy of her world, and cut out all the advertisements, and note the difference. the advertisements take up at least 70% of the magazine. which leaves me only 30% of the original bulk to read up on gossip, women's sexual health, make-up, fashion, etc.

oops, why am i even reading her world? albino

yeah.. whenever i buy a magazine at the store, what i usually do is just to hold it by the spine and give it a few shakes at the magazine rack itself.. this usually gets rid of the irritating pamphlets and causes much irritation to the staff at the bookstore..

I saw the bag the other day at the Den. Quite err.. cutesy. It'll definitely attract attention on the course, but it looks more like a collector's item than anything else.
