Sort of… Well, my activism is in the new issue of Playboy, anyway.
Neat! It may appear on slightly different pages, regionally. Perhaps not at all internationally.
Cliche ‘I read the articles’ jokes aside, I’ve really seen some interesting articles in the pages of that mag. Shit, I even discovered Peter Max’s artwork through Playboy. There seriously is some high-brow stuff in there, for those who never looked.
Personally, I don’t find the so-called ‘bombshell look’ all that appealing. It’s too unrealistic to me. I just see a picture of a woman who needs more time in front of a mirror than is reasonable, and how that enormous amount of time was wasted trying to achieve a look that others want for her. I’m sure there are plenty of exceptions, but all I’m saying is that for me – the only thing about Playboy that I find redeemable is the word-content. Then again, I’ve not read it in several years.
My wife’s going to pick up a copy tomorrow for posterity. This and the NY Times front page story from last year are the only two things I’ve purchased like a total dork bragging about shit. I gloated around at work today saying “I’m in this month’s Playboy!” to my friends. They laughed like a bastard.
