Don't start thanking The Almighty til you see those new circ numbers, Ed.

OH MY GOD! No Time magazine waiting for me when I got to the office this morning! How the hell am I supposed to get through my week? Feel so naked, so...uninformed. Seriously Ed McCarrick, who seriously reads Time these days besides retirees? Every day is fucking Friday for them. (note: See, the "creativity" with this ad is that the art director used the typeface of the Time logo but replaced it with the hip phrase "TGIF," which also happens to be 4 letters long. Brilliant.)
(ad scanned from the Wall Street Journal)
previously in magazines:
1. geezerJock? Yes, geezerJock.
2. Rocketry Mockery.
3. Jason Binn is a prick: The Evidence.
4. How many "Trumps" are there in Trump magazine?

I read Time; hell, I can't get my wireless internet connection to work from Whitlock avenue to Union Square.

I also read the Economist. Did you know Indonesia is at a crossroads?

in these politically-correct times, is it still kosher to say "thank god it's friday"?

TIME? That rag hasn't been relevant sinces the '50's fer chrisesake! Why don't TIME and it's first cousin, NEWSWEEK, do the decent thing and retire themselves out to the green pastures where their idiot predecessors in retirement, LIFE and LOOK, graze mindless and harmless, immemorium.

I guess using a print ad to anounce this horseshit in another dinosaur like the now anorexic WSJ is just fucking brilliant. The use of the empty space is a perfect metaphor for their empty content (must of been one of those horny coked up ivy ad boys who cooked up that hardy har har). It's time to die, Time. So die, bitch.
