My bowl-mate Claude has covered the recent epic media battle between Sylvester Stallone and the shoe fetishists below. But since I’m a footnotey kind of guy, I’m going to add a footnote. (Shoe fetishists? Footnote? Get it? Sorry.) American Media trainspotters will note that Sly, the magazine aimed at those who covet and want to know more about the lifestyle of you-know-who, was aborted after a three-issue test run, and then re-launched for a fourth go-around. But it seems like that’s it for the title. An AMI spokesman stated that: “The last issue is on the newsstand and there will be no additional issues.”
Too bad– I was dusting off my ‘Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot’ fan fiction.
