Ugh

I am thisclose to canceling my Vanity Fair subscription. And finding out that ol' Graydon is putting celebunot Paris Hilton on the cover may be the proverbial straw.

Even though you know that, much like the handful of M&Ms that pushes me over the line from satiated to sick, I'm going to read the article on her. And I'll hate myself in the morning.

I think you should cancel it. Paris is a definite no-no.

We stopped subscribing back in '98. We found the magazine to be full of inaccuracies.
Hey, look at me! Using technology and all.

Hi Lopez!

I find VF amusing because it is so openly snobby. And secretly, I want to be a snob, too. But lately, it's gotten too lowbrow. Russian swimsuit models, Angelina Jolie, Paris Hilton---it's getting to be like US or People but with more ads.

For a dishy read about Graydon Carter and life at Vanity Fair, I recommend "How to Lose Friends and Alienate People" by Tobey Young. It's nonfiction and very funny.

Bearette!

You and my mother. Feeding my addiction.

I'll have to look for that book, though.

It was not only full of inaccuracies, it was already becoming a giant cardboard box filled with foam peanuts - big, but light. It's basically turned into an East Coast version of "People."

Lopez? Lopez!
