Gone from best magazine ever to not worth the paper it is printed on, millionairs only apply
on June 26, 2016
Maxim has went from the average everyday guy magazine to a rich and famous luxury magazine and now is rubbish. Let me explain.
I subscribed to maxim from near it start for years and years until I had to take a break due to some life issues. Maxim was the only magazine I could read from cover to cover and enjoy at least 99% of it. It was great information, interesting articles, cool gadgets a normal person could afford, and so much more. Maxim was like the holy grail of mens magazines, even a lot of women I knew loved it.
Fast forward to somewhere in the near past...
I resubscribed to maxim a few months ago excitedly awaiting my favorite reader ever to come back in to my life. I got the first issue and was like what in the hell is this crap... For instance, I just sat down to read the may issue. Usually an issue would take me a week to read as they are usually bathroom or before bed readers. I literally flipped through the entire issue in about 2 minutes, and that is being generous. The magazine went from amazing things I could afford to the "new look" of maxim. I do not think I could afford a single thing in this magazine now, well to be fair there was an ad for chewing tobacco but I would never use that anyways. The whole magazine is million dollar cars, thousand dollar champagnes, watches that are worth more than my life, etc. The articles have went from interesting to how rich this person is and the lavish lifestyle they lead. What used to be interesting articles on models and what they like to do have gone to pages of nice pictures, hardly any words, and empty articles.
I do not know when they decided to change, but the best magazine ever is now the most worthless magazine to be in print, well unless you are a millionaire, then it may peak your interest and desires.
