Ooh, PROJECT!


This is my new baby project. I would like to re-acquire all my most favorite/influential magazines from when I was younger. Right now this means I am on the lookout for issues of VOGUE and SEVENTEEN from the years 1995 to 1997. I tore the pages of most of my favorite editorials from that period, but I've decided I want to have the whole kit n' kaboodle. Eventually I hope to have them all bound, just like a professional library (my professional library!?!). I know I can find many issues on eBay, but sometimes they go for like, 25 bucks, so I figured I'd give a shoutout in case anyone had some lying around that they were trying to get rid of or knew of any cool hot spots where I can get them for cheaper. Email me if you've got the 411 on the back issues and I will love you forever.
Thanks in advance guys!



*Yeah, I'd like to say that I was TOTALLY cool and read Sassy, but sadly that was a bit before my time. In any case, Seventeen used to be a pretty rad mag, and that's how I learned about the Tibetan Freedom Concert and Kim Gordon and Welcome to the Dollhouse (which I actually hated once I watched it, but that's another story).

You know...until the great purge of 2001, I could have helped you out. I had about every issue of Seventeen from 1995 on. I agree, it was a damn good magazine back then.

Having your own personal library is such a fantastic idea. Perhaps I'll have to do this for all my old ELLEgirl magazines - I still have them, but basically everything I liked about them I tore out.

You hate Welcome to the Dollhouse, because out of all the movies that have ever covered being a "nerd", this shit actually got it right. Go watch fucking disingenuous shows like Daria and movies like Juno.
