Instead of using the recycling bins, they’ve been leaving discreet piles of old magazines in the laneway. I assume they’re hoping someone might find them interesting and take them away.
Personally, I thought it looked like a rather boring pile. Nothing inspiring there. Nothing like my collection of The Face, for example.
I used to be a great magazine reader, but now, thanks to the interweb, a lot of what I used to enjoy about magazines has been replaced with more instant gratification online. If I want showbiz gossip, music news or whatever, it’s there at the drop of a hat. I don’t need to wait a month any more. So yeah, these magazines looked drab, IMHO.
I only noticed them because I went for a bit of a mid-evening walk.
It’s bloody warm tonght. 26 degrees at the moment and it’s almost 11 o’clock.
Still, it was a beautiful day. I had a meeting this morning at the Opera House, where the weather was almost balmy. I had a work-related lunch which also involved getting out of the office. And then tonight, I decided it was time for an evening stroll.
Meanwhile, I’m lovin’ this video clip a mate just Twittered about…
