Recommendations on UX Journals and Magazines

I am trying to pull together a list of ux academic journals and magazines that not only introduce ux methodologies (both research and design) but also best practices. Off the top of my head, I can think of Interactions and UX Magazine. Anything else that is worth reading? I am interested in both theories and case studies.

I'll be more than happy to share the results with everyone!

NYTimes.com Multimedia Editor Andrew DeVigal gives us a rare look at how the interactive department of New York Times works, and shares the basic questions he must ask -and answer- before anything goes online.

"Make it pretty" - My Boss

Howdy, I work at an organization that believes having a "Pretty" skin is all you need to have a good User Experience. Has anyone ever run into this, and how does one overcome this. I am literally at my wits end trying to prototype different layouts, and explaining the need for user research/feedback. All comments are welcome, constructive or not.

New soft drink user experience

I just came back from lunch at a fast food restaurant where they were heavily promoting how you can over 100 flavors of soft drinks now.  They had 2 brand new Freestyle dispenser machines.  The part I found fascinating: despite a large, interactive touch screen display and a *fairly* siimple task, the restaurant had not one, but two, assistants helping each and every person get a drink.

Fastco Design article: more hating on UCD

http://www.fastcodesign.com/1663220/user-led-innovation-cant-create-breakthroughs-just-ask-apple-and-ikea?partner=co_newsletter

Yet another article on why "we don't need no stinking user centered design" ~ Anyone seen this one? Thoughts?

It seems to me to be just a rehashing of some of the others, citing Apple as one of the examples.
