Mia Timpano

I met the head writer from Frankie yesterday - Mia Timpano.

I came across as such a dawk. Gushing over how much I liked her writing and how I had just been reading "10 ways to retain your dignity when you are drunk" as well as her moving and intense piece on refugees.

Mia, next time you need to write some advice on 10 ways to look cool in front of someone you want to impress.

She was snapping some photos of the store. Just your average everyday girl with a wicked quill and a following of thousands. I love my job... colour me influential. Ok, colour me standing next to people who are influential. God damn it, just colour them then.

Suri Cruise and the Obvious

Vanity Fair with Suri Cruise on the cover just came in. People are going crazy over it. We had requests for this title for weeks before it even arrived.

Ok, so Suri is pretty damn cute (did anyone know that Suri means frog in Switzerland?)

But what just knocks me over is the intellectual discourse that accompanies the wonderful photos.

The Caption reads as follows:

Mother Knows Best. Katie has grand plans for her daughter. "I want her to enjoy her life," she says, "and accomplish all her dreams."

Now seriously, this is not riveting journalism. What parent doesn't want that for their kid? While the article wasn't bad, most people won't read it but will simply gawk at the photos and perhaps read the photo captions.

Good on Katie for loving her child, but Vanity Fair, please give us more than the obvious. Maybe their brains went gaga after stairing too long into Suri's eyes...

My first foray into the world of blogging. Bit of a no brainer what I will be blogging about.


My life, my passion, my world!

Ok - so I also happen to run a magazine retail business called Mag Nation so I depend on magazines to help feed my kids (although Mag Nation doesn't really pay the bills as yet), but I wouldn't have left safe corporatedom for magazines if I didn't have a love affair with them.

Sooo lovely and shiny...

I am a self-proclaimed magaholic.

Don't ever ask me what my favourite magazine is. I get it all the time and it shits me. Like asking me which of my kids I love more.

So, what am I reading/flipping through at the moment:

Dazed & Confused
Ha! (new mag on Aussie Humour)

Have no clue if anyone will ever read this. Too many blogs and so little time. Perhaps other magaholics might come across me from time to time. Maybe we should form a support group...
