African-American Ladies Get “Juicy,” Their Own Celebrity Rag

Lots of our beloved magazines have been flushed down the tubes. Au revoir, Gourmet! Goodbye, Modern Bride! We’ll never forget you, Domino! But it’s not all dark clouds at the newsstand. Juicy, the first celebrity, hair and beauty magazine just for African-American women (from the same folks who publish XXL), will launch in May. (You can also check out their site, JuicyMagOnline.com, shortly before the May launch.) Will Juicy be able to hold up next to the gajillion other gossip rags like In Touch and US Weekly? If all the dramz in Rihanna, Kanye and Usher‘s lives are any indication, Juicy won’t have a problem. Keep reading »

How To Save Print Media: “T-Post” Is A Wearable Magazine

Everyone’s thinking digital when it comes to saving the news publishing industry, but maybe the answer is to actually go more for the physical. That’s kind of the idea behind T-Post, a magazine you can wear. Each shirt concentrates on an off-beat (yet relevant) news story; past articles have covered how “Google Earth was being used to find a lost Eden” or “The ethics of mind-enhancing super drugs.” The editors then have artists come up with a related graphic for the front of the shirt, and print the text of the story on the inside. This, in the eyes of the T-Post editors, constitutes an “issue,” which comes out every six weeks. The genius catch: to get your hands on one you have to be a subscriber. OK, so it might not be the most efficient way to get your news. But at least you won’t have to deal with messy ink hands. After the jump, a video by the folks at T-Post, breaking down the details.

This week, the gang was up to all their usual hijinks and the tabloids were stalking them to make sure every minute detail was captured. And because we love you guys so much, we trolled through those inked pages to pull out the most interesting stories once again. Enjoy! Keep reading »

The “Full House” Home Is Way Nicer Now That The Tanners Don’t Live There

Not to ruin the small screen for you, but characters on TV don’t actually live in the houses shown on shows. No, those exteriors shots are of homes where real people live. And actually, the homes inside can be even more magical than the sets used for filming, as we learned in the January/February issue of Elle Decor. The home where the Tanners supposedly lived on “Full House” is featured in the issue, and we’d find a way to put up with Stephanie’s incessant “How rude!” exclamations if we could move in. Check out the rest of the Tanners’ former San Francisco three-bedroom Victorian, then compare the current owners’ decor to that of the ’80s show after the jump. [Elle Decor] Keep reading »
