reading list

another article on the fascinating world and wardrobes of the glossies' underpaid fashion assistants, this time in the sunday telegraph's stella magazine. i'm just jealous, cos i really want to be interviewed for a piece on
publishing publicity assistants, the glamourous world of.

mag assassin:
1. what is up with elle magazine??? admittedly, i am a subscriber, but i obviously (and happily!) don't fit their skewed idea of a demographic. last month it was christina aguilera on the cover. this month it's p*ris hilton, who the interviewer quite patently loathes, but manages to hold her tongue just enough to extract a few 'outrageous!!' exclamations from the vacant-eyed valley girl.
2. the article by the sloaney girl transplanted to primrose hill to stalk indie boys was completely mystifying. she moonlights at club nme and the barfly when she's not sipping bellinis or eating chic cuisine at her chums' pads on the 'hill. i mean, girls only ever go to gigs or indie clubs (how 90s) to check out the boys, anyway, cos we're all listing to waily girl rock on our ipods right now - that or The Bridget Jones of Podcasting - whoppee!!!! ok.

'hormone rock' in the sunday times style magazine. a complete waste of paper. come on girls, you can do better than that! if i'm not mistaken, dido has been bothering us for about 5 years and as for Fiona Apple and Beth Orton... what?

and something actually worth reading: kira cochrane on feminist bloggers from last friday's guardian.
