twenty 600 reasons to hate magazines

By jess.thomson 6 December 2008 26

For the most part, I couldn’t care less about magazines, much less ones in Canberra, and the rubbish attempts at them here are usually a joke, but for some reason the last year has seen rise to few magazines.

I read Frankie and Yen, and at least have an understanding of what looks good, but I’m not exactly sure what the aim of twenty 600 and the team of social retards behind it is?

Who gives a toss; about stories of yourselves and what you’ve done? Fictitious stories including your wildest fantasies and perceptions of yourselves leaves me wondering what the hell this is actually about? For me to want to read about you, you’d have to have done something significant, or be attempting to.

Writing a magazine aimed at feeding your ego, by giving yourself a title because you’re too talentless to achieve one, is the farthest thing from exciting or interesting.

This self indulgent drivel, is barely worthy of a blog, let along the paper you print it on, and joking about jerking off your mate, when the editor would actually consider it… leaves a salty taste in the mouth. Oh, and my god, it is the worst design, layout and attempt at anything creative this city has ever seen, you’re worse than Capital Magazine or Shitty News, at least I open those to check out the social pages—you’re a joke.

[ED – Perhaps readers would like to take this opportunity to share their thoughts on the Canberra street press / magazine scene?]

How can street press be anything other than hot and cold in a town like Canberra? It reflects what’s going on.

I’ve seen Twenty 600 around….I’ve not seen “The Berra” though, what’s that one about?

BMA is a little hot & cold for a street press…it’s been around for a long, long time though. Just Bands was the best music street press going (for about 6 months, 7 years ago). 😉

Viral marketing at it’s worse.

Who cares? I’ve never seen the magazine.

twenty 600 seems to be nothing more than a vehicle to sell advertising space for a certain local cosmetic surgery company.

The articles are nothing more than blog space for a small bunch of hack prep kids who don’t have an original thought in their nickel plated heads.

No amount of glossy paper can disguise the vomit within. And unfortunately it gets stuffed into my mailbox every time they’ve sucked down the ipecac.

Anyways, feel free to enjoy this rag with your botox injections and tummy tucks.
