    I subscribe to:

    Fortean Times
    Private Eye

    And pick up others as they appeal to me - New Scientist or one of the newsagent-stocked UFO/paranormal magazines if anything really odd jumps out at me (but haven't done that in a while as the news has usually done the rounds by the time they see print and their analysis is poor). I've also picked up copies of Magonia, The Anomlaist, UFO Magazine (UK), Lobster, Skeptical Inquirer, Animals & Men, 3rd Stone and Steamshovel Press when I can (and the content appeals to me - I wouldn't have the cash or space to hoover them all up each issue) but availability is always a little patchy, so I only have a handful of issues each.

    I was also buying Dodgem Logic.

    Wired (UK Edition)
    Judge Dredd Megazine (it has articles and therefore is a magazine)

    Linux Magazine

    I used to buy a truckload of magazines throughout the 90s. Pretty much everything I was interested in folded anyway and I got tired looking for replacement titlesthat maybe got 2-3 issues out so since about 2005 I've been magazine free. Around that time my focus shifted to English language reading and I had a big return to reading comics anyway.

    I get really excited over magazines. I kind of compulsively read them. The most common ones:

    Wired (I think my subscription is on auto-renew, and that's just okay w/ me)
    GameInformer (thanks, GameStop)
    Spin (probably not anymore, though; they had offered a super-cheap subscription a while back and it's just not worth renewing)
    Coilhouse (mmmf.)
    ReadyMade (it's kinda like Make for hipster ladies, I guess?)

    My grandparents get one called Birds and Blooms, and goddamn it, I take them after they're done and read them too.
    I have stacks of cooking mags everywhere. There's a box right next to me of issues of Wired and Blender (I fucking miss that one) and Spin from 2005-07. I've re-read them recently.
    I might have a problem.

    Sport Rocketry

    In both cases, I have something like a year of back issues to work through. The rocketry mag comes with membership in the national rocketry association, and I could almost do without it.

    Back In The Day I used to subscribe to Wired, bOING bOING, Whole Earth [Review | Quarterly], Mondo 2000 and similar zines. Back in Another Day, a bunch of gaming magazines. And there was a time I regularly read 3-4 home computer magazines.

    hi fructose - quarterly art mag, the only one i buy every issue of at moment.
    wired uk - was buying for a while, but been awhile now actually.
    economist - i go through phases, tend to buy specials, tend to drop it when i notice i have them piling up in unread.
    songlines/wire - depends whether there is a CD that catches my eye or not, i rarely actually read the content tbh.
    ad busters - actually been buying this regularly for the last few issues, partly out of interest, partly as reference.
    asimov/F&SF/interzone - i buy the story magazines occassionally, depending on availability/interest. i was subscribed to a couple, but again they were piling up unread so i've resisted resubscribing so far.

    big problem is the time/space issues with magazines. do i keep a magazine? there are some that are keepers, and some that are readers, but even then it feels weird to throw anything out ever. which is why i am currently in the process of filling boxes with compulsive random mags, books, comics, and shit, with the hope of actually clearing some floor/shelf space.

    I subscribe to Film Comment. Often pick up The Wire. Occasionally grab Sight & Sound. Since I can deduct them from my taxes I really should get more film magazines.

    Sub to Fortean Times. Pick up New Scientist at the newsstand once in a while. Occasionally get Helix for my kids.

    Used to read Wired and a bunch of my local music rags. Not so much anymore.
