>Happy 1000th Issue!!!This is the cover of next week’s Entertainment Weekly!!!! I just wanted to congratulate my favorite magazine on reaching a huge milestone. A 1000 issues is just plain ridiculous. I have been a fan of Entertainment Weekly since grade 11 when I started subscribing, and I have never thrown out an issue since…much to my parent’s crowded basement’s chagrin.
Fun Fact: I was once featured in the Letters to the Editor thanking them for their complete Buffy the Vampire Slayer Issues. You can read it here
And then the thing that changed a lot of things for me was also a product of Entertainment Weekly and it’s also the piece of writing I’m probably most proud of. I never tire of linking to my piece about losing my Star Wars Virginity!
Fun Fact: I am missing one single issues. I remember lending it to a classmate (Rita Monson) in Grade 12 and I never saw it again. Luckily, I can still read it on the EW Magazine Archive. Oh Mulder and Scully, who knew you would still be around?
So needless to say I’m so excited to get my hands on EW’s newest issue. Based on the cover alone (Buffy! double issue! Best Of!) for a pop-culture freak like me, it is pretty much the equivalent of a teenage “grown up” dream.
ps. Mike’s Bloggity Blog Blob is only a couple of months away from the same milestone! I’m registered at Canadian Tire.
