Fashion Magazine

I have a subscription to Wired (a Conde Nast publication these days) which I pay for. Some time ago they bundled a Portfolio magazine in with my Wired and after a couple of these, the Portfolio started coming in its own wrapper.

Portfolio actually has some interesting-to-me articles about business issues so I do read it although I doubt if I'd subscribe to it. The recent one had some articles about the declining evolution of network TV because of all the cable channels and niche programming as well as stuff about some of the execs. There was also an article about clusters of suicides in companies and in particular at Renault after Ghosn took over because he apparently drove his workers too hard by making them work nights and weekends until they couldn't take it anymore.

Then this month I got a copy of Fashion Rocks Magazine. I scanned through it and I can make absolutely no connection to anything in it. OK, I recognized two names out of many - Justin Timberlake who I know about from the wardrobe malfunction in the Super Bowl a few years ago Mariah Carey who I think was rumored to be dating several baseball players, and Beyoncé who I might actually be able to recognize if I saw a picture of her without her name. I've glanced inside a couple of times but couldn't really read anything - this is a whole different world to me - it's ready for recyling.

    It seems appropriate when on a Road Scholar trip to see a statue of Cecil John Rhodes.
