This week in the App Store it may as well've been 1991: We've got Lollapalooza! Monkey Island! Novel self-help strategies! Glittery-clothed strippers! And last but not nearly least, everyone's favorite defunct supermarket tabloid! The Golden Age of culture, people.
Weekly World News: Now is neither the time nor place to get into my deep appreciation of the WWN, and I feel their blurb says enough:
For over 30 years, the Weekly World News has been the World's ONLY Reliable News Source. The Weekly World News bares the TRUTH about UFOs, aliens, monsters, Elvis' whereabouts, cryptids, popular celebrities, and the mutant freaks that live among us.
Considering you can get the entire archives of the paper for free on Google Books, it seems dumb that this $1 app only gives you access to covers, though the add-your-own-face feature is pretty neat. Granted, this could have been a content ratings thing, because half of the dead magazine's columnists were basically insane, or sexist, or some other terrible kind of "ist." It's part of the charm!
