While waiting in line at the grocery store, I spotted the magazine rack, which is pretty much what one would expect in Sweden:
One of my Facebook friends posted an article about Matthew McConaughey the other day that discussed his love for the New Orleans Garden District. All of the comments were on how great a person Mr. McConaughey is or how great New Orleans is, but there was not one comment about the name of the magazine in which this article appeared – Garden & Gun.
Though it makes me laugh, this is one of the reasons I’m glad I no longer live in the southern states. Can you imagine a magazine like this in Sweden? What would it be called? Trädgård & Yxa ?
I have to read a lot of online magazines for my job. So many of them are the same. Then I start thinking about writing my own online magazine. Much like a blog I guess.
What would I call it to get people’s attention? The Awesome Gossip Report.
Top stories: Just awesome stuff, like how I heard the building I work in has giant nutra-rats living in the basement. Or how to turn a character on RollerCoaster Tycoon into a Monster Truck and roll over customers.
I’d give the latest in “Keeping up with the kids.” The top trends in 1st – 4th grade. This week it’s “Five Nights at Freddy’s,” a new game to play outside called “Blood Potato,” and Digimon is making a comeback.
In food news, cucumbers are really cheap this week. And “How to NOT make dry lasagne.”
What am I missing? Not much more than these other online magazines I see. I guess I need annoying advertising on the side. Maybe I can at least get AWESOME sponsors like “bacon bowl” or “Hamburger bed.”
You’d subscribe, right?
