Here ya go. Decent write up too. Factually quite accurate, and they guy actually likes the flavor, unlike all of the other absinthe novices that bash it in their articles.

Playboy was always under-appreciated for its articles.

You got a problem with that?

Honestly, the only thing I ever look at on the site is the booze and tech reviews. Airbrushed girls with huge fake boobs never appealed to me.

For some reason I'm reminded of an exchange from "Play It Again, Sam" (I think):

Woman: "Sex without love is an empty experience."

Woody Allan: "Yeah, but as empty experiences go, it's one of the best."

Bah. That arguement lost its cred AGES ago. I've actually read the articles, and they were always boring as hell... and poorly written to boot.


Maxim is a more enjoyable read, and is 'respectable' enough that you can read it in most public places without getting too many dirty looks.


(Hustler... God, those articles used to be funny. Some old-ass codger at my very first job at a bowling alley? His wife made him throw out his entire collection. He brought it in to work one day instead, and gave it all to me and the other 15 year old porter. Funny reading.)

Ha!

I can't stomach Maxim either. Most of the articles are terribly researched and the photos are even more photochopped and airbrushed than playboy.

I was basically referring to the sixties, and earlier...by the time I was 16 (being both an extremely avid reader, and an irredeemable pervert), I found Playboy to be too tame, and lame on both literary, and pictorial levels.

Oh, and what Pan said. :tongue:

You, a pervert? Irredeemable at that? Lies and untruth!
;P
Or not.

I remember in the past some "Playboy Interviews" were very nice...... but it has been a very long time that I don't look at that magazine... :devil:

I'm actually okay with this trend. I don't need a ton of parsley around when I am trying to eat my steak.

Ahem... so yeah. That was a good article in the magazine.

I'm good with the article. A pretty fair piece. The booze wasn't abused.

OK, you can re-arrange the letters any way you'd like. :dev-cheers:
Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

Well, crudity aside, like most fashions it is popular for any number of reasons. Ultimately, it is because it makes their partners happy or it is an attempt to make their partners happy. I'm guessing you probably succumb to the whims of fashion to please someone, too.

As this thread is open to public viewing, I would also encourage a little sensitivity to the wandering reader lest we appear sexist.
