Oh, SmAlbany!

Daily posts and occasional longer essays about politics, culture, and life in the Capital Region...updated M-F, midmorning

"I write this not as a booster of Albany, which I am, nor an apologist for the city, which I sometimes am, but rather as a person whose imagination has become fused with a single place, and in that place finds all the elements that a man ever needs..." -W. Kennedy, from O Albany!

Inquiring minds: want to know why would you subscribe to Capital Region Living? While perusing their circuliation numbers, I noticed that a subscription to the print edition is $18 for the year, which is twelve issues. Now, it's not a bad magazine, by any means. In fact, I glance at it once in a while. But I read it online, where you can get the full content of the magazine for free. Oh wait, you say, what about people who don't like reading on a computer, or who prefer to have the physical magazine in front of them, or just like being able to see the pictures? Well, not only can you read it online, but you can pick up a copy for free at "over 500 locations" including "every Price Chopper and Hannaford" in the capital district.

P.S. I dont' want to pump the magainze up too much. They did include this clunker article this month about finding "time in your life to date" which includes such tips as "turning off your cell phone," "use a crockpot," and "don't make your bed," presumably because that will save you time that you could spend dating. I suppose the bed advice might save you some time at the end of a date, although probably not, given that you're getting dating tips from CRL.

P.P.S. Then again, I don't want to dump on the magazine too much. Sure, it's a little disingenuous to call itself the area's "premier magainze," but it does have some decent features, like this article on local chefs. And i thought the saratoga guide last month was decent. [Don't you occasionally call Oh, SmAlbany! the area's premier blog?-ed. I would never use that terminology. But you do think it's true?-ed. Shut up.]

I'm not sure what to say - i saw her $40/day Saratoga dining episode, perhaps I could do a post on that. Should have done it during track season, i guess.

I'm rather indifferent to her - i would never watch the show unless i had some good reason - like the saratoga show - but i don't find her annoying like a lot of people.
