Kardashian Internet Holocaust!

I am not sure of their motives or their means to the end, but Paper magazine is trying to break the internet by putting heavily photoshopped photos of Kim Kardashian on the cover of their paper magazine. Eh, people need a goal in life, I suppose. But 'break the internet'? Paper has been in the paper world far too long; it takes more than a huge ass -- seriously, they enlarged it to over 1/2 the length of her torso, and that wasp-waist is missing some organs -- to break the internet. Yeah, it's going to get some attention, but to sufficiently break the internet you need images on the scale of THIS. OMG JUST LOOK AT IT I CAN'T EVEN GO IN TO WORK TODAY BECAUSE OF THOSE PICTURES. No Kardashian ass can stand up to that link.


Playboy Back To Its Roots!

The Playboy company, after years of trying to fit into TV and internet adult entertainment molds, is turning back to its roots, trimming the fat and looking towards a lifestyle-mag format, which is exactly how the magazine started. Esquire, GQ, and even Maxim have been trying to ride on Playboy's coattails as a men's lifestyle magazine, and by heading back in that directly Playboy is going to have some competition for the audience, but they've got sixty years of experience behind them. They seem to be even looking in the right direction: the article says they have brought in experts to help them find their way in the world of free internet pornography. Playboy was never entirely about the photos; reading it 'for the articles' was always a genuine pleasure of having Playboy, and regaining that aura again will be awesome...if they can do it right.
