Hello, and welcome to March Monday’s Magazine rack chit chat thread.
With so much doom n’ gloom around, it’s occasionally refreshing and relaxing to just pick up a magazine and escape for a while.
When I’m traveling overseas, my favourite magazine to take on board used to be The Bulletin. It was a really good read, and it gave me an air of sophistication and intellect that was sadly lacking in those touting a copy of Who Weekly or New Idea.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that of course.
My hairdresser always has the most recent up-to-date issues of all the “womens’ mags,” and I must admit it’s great to flick through the covers to discover how our glorified superstars are falling to shreds due to the ravages of drugs, relentless partying and other excecces that remain beyond the grasp of us mere mortals.
Take Mickey Rourke for instance. He was once an 80’s pin-up boy actor with a great future ahead of him, only to succumb to the excesses of his generation only to reappear recently completely unrecognisable due to overdoing it just a bit with the botox.
And then there’s Michael Jackson, set to take to the stage once again to already sold out shows in London in order to salvage himself from financial ruin. To this day he maintains that he hasn’t had any plastic surgery. Fair enough. Who am I to argue? Looks completely natural to me.
Anyway, I suppose I’d better do something productive like clip my nails or somethin’..
