Not much anymore.  

ScoreGolf (Canadian)
Insider (where's my membership kit ??? >:()

Used to have a ton more.  Pick up Toyfare often, no point in subscribing, it's cheaper to buy at Walmart than to have the subscription when in Canada.

You know what's funny, is that someone apparently gave us a subscription to Sports Illustrated for Christmas, I think, but we've never figured out who it was, and they obviously never mentioned it...  Not that we mind at all.

Other than that, the only subscription I get anymore is the Insider.  Meanwhile, my intellectual college history instructor wife gets a whole ****load of them, including National Geographic, Smithsonian, Archaelogy, and about 7 others.  She reads entirely too much...  Ugh.  :P

I subscribe to:

Maxim
Stuff
FHM
Golf
Boston Globe (not a magazine but worth mentioning)

And buy every month:
Playboy
Wizard


I let me subscriptions run out on Maxim, FHM and Stuff.  I still get Golf, but only because I signed up for a 3 year deal.  I'm going to let that one expire too.  I do subscribe to Playboy now instead of buying it on the newstands.  Still buy Wizard at the comic book shop every month.

Metropolis
Architectural Record
Interiors

Heard of this one.  My wife studied architecture in school (not registered yet) and this mag was common around the dorms.  It's one damn expensive magazine.  Isn't a subscription like $100+ a year? (less if you're an AIA member?)

Architectural Record is down to $49.00.

They've got a nice site as well, check it out here.

I think a lot of the more expensive magazines from a few years ago have reduced subscription costs to keep/attract subscribers. I know ID was once up in the $70 or $90 range, and it's down to $30 per year (8 issues)... I also think they publish less frquently to reduce cost, like 8 instead of 12 issues per year.

I found a free subscription on the 'net for the following:

FHM
Stuff
Playboy

Free is GOOD! :)
Something for the guys to read while I am working on their cars. There are some interesting articles in some of these! ;)

Magazines I actually pay for:

Inside Kung Fu
Black Belt
SW Insider
SW Fact Files
Rolling Stone

SW Fact Files

Ouch.  I assume that's not actually a direct subscription straight to your residence though, right Sharon?  Are you subscribed through a European buddy, and they just forward it all to you?  I would've liked to get all of those myself, but just didn't want to deal with the high cost and overseas hassles.  Considered buying Adam's collection when he finally parted with it, but still refrained.  Maybe some day...

Thankfully, a good trade friend through Fed has helped with Fact Files.  They are a fantastic publication, well worth the trouble.  Hard to fathom they were never done in the US? ::)
