Magazines

Southern Metropolis Weekly

A highly entertaining magazine with a split personality.

On Wednesdays, the Entertainment edition contains trashy celebrity gossip equal to best of the paparazzi press, married to high-concept features, serious interviews with people in the arts, and film and album reviews.

On Fridays, the Life edition publishes in-depth social analysis, interviews with academics, and book reviews, filling out the magazine with interesting articles translated from the foreign press. Like its parent newspaper, Southern Metropolis Daily, SMW does substantial reporting on social inequality and bureaucratic malfeasance.

The editors indulge their sense of humor fairly often. They publish an annual spoof issue, and their covers are often wickedly funny (here's their take on Chinabounder, for example).

Note: The website lags a few days behind the print edition.
