Random Pixels Guest Columnist: South Florida Lawyers

Yesterday, my blogging colleague over at South Florida Lawyers opened up his Miami Herald and discovered something called "Indulge," a slick, new magazine dedicated to conspicuous consumption, conspicuous consumers and the people who love them.

(I'm told that when they were picking names for the mag, "Indulge" won out over more descriptive titles like "Gluttony" and "Decadent"...but not by much.)

I'd never heard of "Indulge" until SFL wrote about it, but after inspecting it closely, I'm guessing that it's distributed only to Herald subscribers who live in select ZIP codes...if you know what I mean. **wink wink**

This video shot at last year's launch party for "Indulge" might give you a better idea of the kind of reader the Herald is trying reach with the magazine.  (Sorry, Liberty City and Little Haiti Herald subscribers...your invitation to the party must have been lost in the mail.)

Anyway, here's what SFL wrote after receiving his issue:


Attention South Florida: You've Just Been Klugified!

I don't know the dwindling numbers of you that still get the dead-tree edition of the Herald delivered every morning, but us Neanderthals were in for quite a suprise today -- everybody got a special Herald magazine supplement called "Indulge."

Now normally I would not pay much attention to this (now that you mention it, what happened to Red Bull magazine?) but numerous tipsters immediately alerted me to this breaking news:

Miami attorney and serial
collector Alan Kluger
Yes, South Florida, this really happened.

The accompanying article is all about The Kluginator's [attorney Alan Kluger] extensive cowboy boot collection (23 pairs and counting!) and includes an anecdote about how a jury consultant once advised him that a working-class Boston jury wouldn't cotton to the boots, and so he bonded with the poor Red Sox-loving townies by buying a pair of Bruno Maglis!

There's even a reference to our crappy little blawg.

Thank you thank you thank you Miami Indulge -- you guys really know how to warm a blogger's cold dark (boot-free) heart.
