How about a movie? POPEYE Issue 867
What is POPEYE magazine?
POPEYE magazine is the “Magazine for City Boys”. The founders printed this on the cover of the magazine when it debuted in 1976. What’s a “city boy”? The term doesn’t appear in the dictionary and no expert panel could define it. So we felt we should explore every aspect of what this “city boy” might be. After decades of debate, it still makes for a topic of lively discussion. It can be a style or a way of thinking. To get an idea of what makes a city boy, read POPEYE magazine.
POPEYE magazine Founded: 1976 Type: Monthly (on sale from the 10th of every month) Readership: ages 25 to 35 – and anyone who thinks of himself as a city boy Topics: fashion, food, outdoor activities, travel and life in our favorite cities New York, Paris, London and Tokyo
How about a movie?
How do we find a movie that perfectly matches our tastes? It’s really difficult to do so nowadays, as the genre doesn’t exactly tell you about what kind of story it might be, and more importantly, we may have a very specific sense of humor, fear and empathy. In other words, understanding ourselves and having a good knowledge of what we genuinely enjoy watching, could allow us to follow others who have similar tastes, this may be a shortcut to making a decision about what we should give it a try. That’s what we thought, therefore, in this issue we interviewed 56 renown people, such as Harmony Korine, about their favorite films in the hope that you will finally encounter the one that you are willing to watch 100 times or more. Let’s stay indoors, time for a movie!
