Well this is something new... (Well actually it's probably not new at all)...
Passed by a newsagent and was a bit bemused as to why Bruce Lee was on the latest Empire cover...
Turns out that the new Empire, featuring the 500 greatest movies of all time, has got 100 arty covers to choose from. Cool idea, altho some of the covers are better than others.
(The Carrie cover is amazing - Empire Strikes Back, Bladerunner, Gremlins and Matrix are gorgeous too. Heath Ledger has sold out, natch)
Although I'm sure they had that Catwoman cover as the actual cover way back when?
I'm actually trying to cut down on magazines at the moment - I usually get Empire, Q and Attitude - but i just never ever read them. They sit on my coffee table gathering dust. I probably should go on Spendaholics - I buy these things, and flick thru them when I get home, but don't really go any further. It's the initial 'thrill'.
And I went off Q when it became clear they hate my lovely, talented, beautiful wife Tori Amos.
I think I'll go for this issue though - and maybe Q if they have Kings of Leon in it, who I have grown to love.
But of course the problem is now - I want the Enter the dragon cover - and now having seen it once, I probably won't see it again!!!
