Overstocked with Magazines

Having completed a number of large acquisitions in the past few months, Downtown Magazine is currently pleased to be overstocked with Playboy magazines dating from the late 50s to the present, plus a large collection of Playboy Special Editions with a grand assortment of the popular Book of Lingerie series, College Girls and other more obscure early titles, when they were known as Newsstand Specials, such as Working Women, Wet & Wild, Bathing Beauties, Girls of Summer and many more.

Anyone with an interest in expanding a Playboy collection or acquiring single issues of Special Editions, should contact Rick Gagliano by email, or check for frequent eBay auctions under the IDs of magsmedia and idle-assets.

Many of these magazines are also featured at Downtown Magazine's Mostly Magazines Online Store.

Downtown Magazine is always interested in acquiring collections of any size, and our unique financing method allows us to pay more than most traditional book and magazine dealers.

The following song is dedicated to Mark Zuckerberg, for all he's done to make Facebook the least enjoyable experience on the internet, EVER. Dude, what the hell? It's so messed up now that you've "improved" it, I had to call three teenagers just to confirm that I was not alone in my angst. They all said they hated the changes, find it difficult to use and can't figure out how to do much with it. A couple of thoughts came immediately to mind. First, if Steve Jobs had designed it, it would work. Second, this is what happens when you let the kids design a communications interface. Hey, Mark, change the Z at the start of your last name to an F, because YOU. HAVE. FAILED. I hope you lose every penny of the 112 or 17 billion Fortune magazine says you have. And now, with Meg Whitman running HP, we can all rest assured that our nation's technology is in hands similar to those running the government. Good luck, loser.
