POPEYE magazine is the “Magazine for City Boys”. The founders printed this on the cover of the magazine when it debuted in 1976. What’s a “city boy”? The term doesn’t appear in the dictionary and no expert panel could define it. So we felt we should explore every aspect of what this “city boy” might be. After decades of debate, it still makes for a topic of lively discussion. It can be a style or a way of thinking. To get an idea of what makes a city boy, read POPEYE magazine.

Movies that spark conversations
Recently, one of my friends, who is not particularly a movie fan, asked me, “Did you watch TENET?” That’s the best thing about movies, they make us want to talk about them and share our experiences with others. ‘Superbad’, for example, is too silly to forget, and ‘PATERSON’, is remarkably interesting despite the fact that nothing dramatic happens in the story, etc. Sharing our feelings with somebody, regardless of how much they like or they know about films, is simply a great fun.
It may be easier to make a list of our best 10 titles instead t may be difficult to name our single best movie. So, for this time, we interviewed various people about their exclusive lists. If you struggle with finding a topic, choosing Spielberg always works. Finally, in case you start thinking about making your own film, please read the P.78, it will certainly help you.

What’s inside:
  • Can’t stop talking about movies: exclusive talk with Sofia Coppola, Rashida Leah Jones and Marlon Wayans.
  • Let’s start with Spielberg.
  • How to make a film.
  • 365 days movie calendar.

Weekend Life Catalog
Some people have days off at the weekends while others works. Some may require regular holidays, while others don’t need them at all, as they live ‘holiday-like‘ days everyday. For both kinds of people, it’s certain that the lines between holidays and non-holidays, or even between times of studying and relaxing, have been getting blurred. We feel that serious consideration should be given to define that those “on” and “off” times are kept separate and creating “another” time to enable us to do something different. No matter how long and frequent you make them and also how big you make your plans, we believe the action certainly enriches your life and this ‘Weekend Life Catalogue’, which is full of fun ideas for holidays, will help you to do so.

What’s inside:
  • Weekend life catalog
  • The perfect egg breakfast
  • 『The Weekender』&『Holiday』
  • My life with my bike.

City Boy’s Essentials
Yes, I’ve noticed my messy closet, and I know it’s time to put some serious work in to organizing it. Searching for that sock that’s lost it’s other half, separating striped shirts and solid colored ones, and deciding what I really need to buy now and sticking to it, so that I can live comfortably throughout each season.
Having said that, I happened to find a nice vintage cap and bought it without any thought today, however I turn to Nigel Peake, who I thought was the type of the person who has a precise plan for his wardrobe and puts a strict limit on the amount of new clothing he buys, well he is also apparently buying new suits soon, so he is my justification.
New clothes make us happy. The most important thing is to decide what to buy. Shirts, sweat tops, coats, and sneakers etc. With this fashion issue, let’s make a plan for your fashion life for the next season.

What’s inside:
  • City boy’s essentials: Let’s wear basic clothing.
  • Shirt / oiled jacket / uniform / leather shoes, and so on.
  • Welcome to my closet: Chris Gibbs and Mordechai Rubinstein

What are you curious about on the internet?
You know, we love walking in the streets, prefer reading physical books to e-books, and shop at stores, rather than online. If this is the case, then, you may be wondering why we have made this issue.
The answer is, not because we’re spending more time at home nowadays, but simply that we enjoy browsing online shops, staying up late and watching Netflix, and feeling amused at some funny images sent by friends.
Anyway, we thought it would be interesting to learn more about the internet and find out how can it be used, seriously.

What’s inside:
  • LET’S SHOP ONLINE
  • 25 YEARS OF INTERNET HISTORY
  • INTERNET FIELDWORK
  • L.O.V.E.V.O.D.

SUMMER READING 2020
“Summer reading” is a custom which literally means to read books in the summer. It’s common in the states, and people there including some renown figures, such as Bill Gates and the former president Obama, share their own list of books before going on vacation.
In Japan, on the other hand, when we were in school we were assigned a particular book by the school to read and write reports on for a writing competition every summer, which was just so depressing.
Based on this unpleasant experience, I’ve come up with this question: should we be forced to be read books? Life is short, and there are so many choices to make on your own. We don’t want to read books that are designated by someone else. We, instead, should choose what we read, books that are so fascinating, some have a profound effect on us and we cannot stop thinking about them, ending up with reading them again and again.
In this edition we explore the world of reading with you. First, why don’t you check out the reading lists by the editorial staff?

What’s inside:

  • 30 Books from POPEYE.
  • What We Want to Read in Summer.
  • Let’s “Think Week”.
  • Summer Reading Times.

GO MUSEUM
Did you watch ‘Uncut Gems‘ on Netflix? It’s a drama based on a piece of black opal and is set in NYC; the film made me realize that minerals have this magical power which can drive humans to madness, and the jeweler, played by Adam Sandler, is such a great example of that.
On the other hand, my stories about the objects of nature are rather more basic and a lot humbler: I was amazed by the geometric pattern on sea shells, I used to be so curious about the seeds on the ground and pebbles along the rivers and I even thought about the left-over bones from a KFC.
The world is full of mysteries. If we dig into the ground, we may find some dinosaur bones or ancient ruins. If we look up at the sky, there will be the Mars probes running somewhere far away in the universe.
What I’ve realized is the wealth of museums. There is everything in there. Although I have to admit that some museums (exhibitions of dinosaurs) were pretty boring when I was a kid, I now realize they are actually filled with treasures, and there are so many things that we could learn from them.
This edition is a special exhibition from us, filled with objects and topics that we truly love. No ticket needed, just turn the pages!

What’s inside:

  • Great Collections from the Smithsonian Institution.
  • Why Don’t You Learn about Minerals?
  • My Favorite Museum.
  • Finding Dinosaur.

Tokyo Story
When walking in the streets, I think of the amount of memories that must have been piled up there. Since the last Olympics in 1964, many decades have passed. Harajuku has been the center of the fashion scene amongst the younger generations since the 1970s, whereas various youth cultures were created in Shibuya after the 1980s. Shinjuku is, as it were, a chaos that’s cultivated the arts, Asakusa is a town for the long-established shops, and Ginza is a place for the adults with playful minds, just as it was 80 years ago. Every single street has its own history, just like our lovers. The past has certainly linked to the present day, and that’s why the city of Tokyo fascinates us so much.

What’s inside:
  • Tokyo Stories: Ginza, Shibuya, Harajuku, Shinjuku and Asakusa.
  • Slow Walk.
  • U23: Where Young City Boys Hang Out.
  • Book in Book: Eat Up Guide.

Looking Good
If we like a friend’s outfit, we might casually ask where they got it from. For hairstyles, however, we may tend to hesitate to ask about details such as where they have had it hair done and how they maintain it, even if really, we want to have it styled like them. So, we’ve made this issue about both fashion and hair, under the theme of “Looking Good”. We’re exploring clean and tidy styles for the coming spring.

What’s inside:
  • Looking Good Hairstyles in the Street.
  • Barber Guide for City Boys.
  • Keep Looking Good!: Items and Knowledge.
  • Good Looking Wear Journal.
