Every January, magazines — all magazines, it’s in the contract — put out Gym Issues, to have some service-y new year’s resolution-y content during a slow news (culture, life) month. So this year’s Gym Ish (how we talk, in journalism) was going to come out on January 21st. So there was only one thing to do: The L Magazine’s First-Ever Presidential Gym Issue, featuring such brilliant tie-ins as Cigarettes and Tricep Presses, or, what our new, hot president can teach you about Changing your body; and The Dead Presidents Guide to Fitness, in which we provide new workout plans for every type. Are you a TR? An LBJ? A Taft? Let us help you.
All this, plus British pub food to make you fat in the restaurant review and sneakers too expensive to work out in in Fashionville; Animal Collective’s Merriweather Post Pavilion reviewed in Musicology and The Class reviewed in the film section; and more and more. Oh, right, sex tapes. Also. Pick an issue up, it’s good exercise.
