Let's be The New Yorker magazine

I'm the 7 stories per issue that all lead with some variation of, "On a recent Tuesday ..."

I’m the word élite, spelled with an acute accent, in the magazine’s bespoke “Irvin” typeface.

by Anonymousreply 1March 23, 2024 3:43 AM

I'm the umlaut (two dots) over one of the Os in "cooperate."

Actually, they're not even umlauts, they're diaereses.

I'm the one interesting article every three issues. That's not enough to keep on subscribing.

I'm a dry, droll cartoon geared toward boomers still working an office job.

We're coöperate, de-luxe, and teen-ager.

I’m the word preëxisting. Do you appreciate my diaeresis? It’s quirky, yet erudite.

I'm Jeffrey Toobin's cum-stained copy.

I'm all the ancient editors who still pine for the Shawn era and think that this whole technology thing will pass as they angrily edit the humanity and spirit out of every piece that comes their way.

I had older friend years ago tell me that, “The New Yorker magazine is like a cat. You don’t know why you still keep it around but you feel like you should, even though it looks down on you.”

I’m Tina Brown telling the art director at the last minute “Well, I just don’t like It“ about the cover art she previously approved that everyone has been working on for weeks.

I'm the needlessly wordy and academic (yet entertaining) review of a basic, non-arty film such as Bridesmaids.

by Anonymousreply 26March 23, 2024 5:07 AM

I’m the computer generated artwork accompanying the fiction. I’m either a glaringly obvious reference or don’t relate to the story at all. Either way, I’m bad.

I'm the cheesy attempts at humor that are supposed to attract young people but only attract flies.

I'm the insertion, since George Floyd, in every article about how black (sorry, Black) people were affected: "Of course, Black orchid growers were worst-hit by the increase in mealybug infestations."

I’m the caustic but hilarious Anthony Lane movie review.

I'm an interesting article. I pop up in the magazine once every seven months.

I’m Jeffrey Toobin’s deeply unimpressive erection.

I'm the crossword that sucks compared to ones from the NYT and the WSJ, but I include a few references to trendy and artsy things, so I think I'm much better than I am. AMIRIGHTBITCHES

I’m another delightful article about our favorite person Paul Rudd written by Paul Rudnick.

I’ll be recycled when David Ian Black writes about Dustin Lance Black.

I am The New Yorker Font. I pay homage to Rea Irvin, the visionary who lent The New Yorker its unique voice and identity. Echoing Wiescher’s sentiments, Irvin’s craftsmanship is so timeless that reviving it for contemporary times was nothing short of imperative.

You may download me and I will be for you a symbol of sophistication, a unique aesthetic gracing your pages giving them a timeless and sophisticated feel.

Since when does the New Yorker have a crossword puzzle?

by Anonymousreply 44March 23, 2024 1:27 PM

I'm the shortened articles -- half the length of yesteryear; dumbed down for a poorly educated and attention-flitting cohort of readers unaccustomed to deep-focus thinking.

by Anonymousreply 45March 23, 2024 1:27 PM

I'm the fumes of past success on which the whole operation is flying.

r44, they've had crossword puzzles online for a bit now. They started putting them in the print edition in 2021, I think.
