    I was thinking you meant in a broader sense.

    I have a 5-year subscription. Will they reimburse.

    Tough to say. They aren't releasing any details.

    I don't know what it became in later years, but when it started about 20 years ago, it had eclectic content that you didn't see in other magazines, such as a guy getting piercings all over and describing them. He said the nipple piercing hurt the worst, way worse than the Prince Albert or the tongue. And it was a review in Details, along with one in Esquire, that prompted me to buy a first edition Infinite Jest when it came out, one of my favorite book purchases ever.

    I pierced my nipples during the New Mexico days and yeah, brutal pain.

    For me, it never set itself apart from GQ, so it makes sense Conde would shut it down. Surprised it took this long.

    That's unfortunate. The world needs to know what kind of down coat Zack Efron will be wearing this winter.

    When I was younger, I saw myself publishing magazines as my life's work. I loved them, especially when they did a great job of figuring out an audience and staying true. I am basically the guy who fell in love with making horseshoes, just as Henry Ford was starting his assembly line.

    About 50 staffers from Details are without jobs at the end of the year. Even though Details is being folded into GQ, GQ is also losing 7 people due to budgeting. On the women's side, the ad sales team from Self is being canned, and Self is being folded into Glamour. What a tough business, even if it is even remarkable that these titles held onto the circulation they have as long as they have.

    This is the second time Details was folded. The first time was about 15 years ago, but they brought it back a half year later. I don't think that is happening again.
