Time Out New York Responds to Biggest Fan

This is Diane, Time Out New York’s biggest fan. You might enjoy TONY, but Diane cannot be without it. As you can see from her poster board, she was angry because a “dung head” postal employee had (allegedly!) been stealing her magazine.

To TONY’s credit, it heard Diane’s pleas, and responded by hand-delivering her a copy of its latest issue. Well done, America.

Chicago Transplant Grapples with NYC Dating Scene ‘Ghosting’

ShutterstockWomanTextingSteve Heisler is a comedian and freelance writer based in Brooklyn who has contributed to GQ, Variety, The AV Club and other outlets. He has also this week, via Time Out New York, stepped on to the battle-of-the-sexes soapbox.

Heisler moved to New York five years ago and even though it happened to him personally as recently again as Christmas 2013, he still can’t quite come to terms with one particular wrinkle of the New York dating scene. A behavior and slang term that muddy the mental picture of Demi Moore crying while navigating a pottery spinwheel:

Have you heard the term ghosting? I hadn’t until moving to New York City from Chicago; now I use it regularly. It’s when you have a bunch of awesome dates with somebody, and then one day, they suddenly stop responding to your texts: They have ghosted you…

Cover Battle: Town & Country or Time Out New York

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s Cover Battle, where each Thursday we throw two magazines in a pit of fire and see which lasts the longest. Sort of.

This week we have Town & Country versus Time Out New York. T&C went with a photograph of Lauren Hutton from 1968. There’s also a headline that reads “Hawaii’s Sexiest Secret: Bikini Island.” This confuses us, because isn’t a bikini considered standard clothing there? Maybe it’s a sexy secret because even dudes wear bikinis? And dogs! You’ll have to read the article to find out.

The Village Voice Sues Time Out New York For Using Phrase Everyone Has Used

(Via paidContent)

The people behind The Village Voice have lost their damn minds. That’s the only explanation we can think of for it suing Time Out New York (TONY) because the magazine used “Best of NYC” without permission from the Voice.

PaidContent reports that the Voice is suing for trademark infringement, and wants the profits from a TONY issue which used “Best of NYC” on its cover handed to the paper, and all the remaining magazines destroyed.

Yes, we’re serious. This isn’t an Onion article. The Voice actually thinks that they own the rights to “Best of NYC,” which might be the most generic phrase since “The big apple,” “Number one movie in America,” or “Hey tourist, try walking faster a**hole.”

But good luck with the lawsuit Voice; you’re going to need it. Wait. Do they own “good luck,” too?

UPDATE:
As you can see from the comment by Tony Ortega below, the Voice does own “Best of NYC.” We still wish them good luck.

PRNewser: An interview with Matthew Bishop, The Economist‘s New York bureau chief.

AgencySpy: Time Out New York launches new “Sex and Dating” section, putting dating and sex-related ads up front and center, and in with the editorial content.

BayNewser: Later this year, the FTC will hold a workshop series dedicated to the future of journalism

Ad Age: Some publishers are releasing circulation numbers in advance of the Audit Bureau of Circulations big semi-annual report, which is coming out soon. Many magazines reported declines in newsstand and subscriptions, but there were some gains: Saveur‘s single-copy sales rose 4 percent during the first half of the year and More magazine’s newsstand held steady.

New York Times: And speaking of More, the magazine for women older 40 seems to be penalized by advertisers for its older audience. “The average More reader makes about $93,000, around $30,000 more than the average for Vogue, Allure or Harper’s Bazaar…But More has hardly a luxury ad in it.”
