Some recent issues of our favorite magazines are featuring eye-catching photography. The May issue of Allure, for instance, has the title’s annual “naked celebrity” feature–which I now personally look forward to more than the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. Who wants to look at one-name models in bikinis when you can see comedians (Chelsea Handler), TV hosts (Padma Lakshmi), and and actresses (Elisha Dushku)? We’re going to miss magazines when they’re all gone, because magazine’s don’t have pop-up ads and the pictures are bigger than when you get them online–David Schonauer
