We all want to be well-rounded. Whether it's banter about global intrigue with the boss, talking shop with the guys, or exchanging edgy repartee with our girlfriend's girlfriends, every guy should be able to hold his own in a conversation. Don't get stuck between the nervous laughs and ignorant nods of agreement while you down your [insert favorite drink here] in hopes no one looks to you for insight. Here are five magazines to help keep your many facets gleaming:
1.) The Economist Skip the local news after Oprah and read The Economist once a week. It pulls double duty by allowing you to forgo that typical news weekly.
2.) National Geographic Brush up on your history and humanities. Plus the photos are just plain awesome.
3.) The New Yorker Pretend you're a social insider and get your hint of the arts.
4.) Wired Technology drives the 21st century. Be sure you're in-the-know about the latest developments.
5.) GQ Know what fashions are out there. Nobody likes the guy who can't tell a Prince Albert from a Four in Hand. Stay sharp, as GQ says.
I've decided to go ahead and take this blog completely toward politics/economy. It's all I talk about anyway. Remember, you can email me at randy [at] circularlife [dot] com or use the chat box in the lower right.
