This is my favourite magazine due to the vast amount of important articles they have produced many that involve human rights, equality and politics in relation to society whilst still being a fashion magazine.
Images of men and women primarily celebrities being photo shopped for things like adverts I believe it creates unobtainable images of people that the audience try to replicate even if this has negative affects on their health or well-being.
“Josie: ‘I am paying my dues on a daily basis, when people tell me that there are no funny women, and “Wooa, it must be weird for you, mustn’t it?” and I think “I used to be so happy.”’
Robin: ‘Do you STILL get that?’
Josie: ‘DO I STILL GET THAT, of course I fucking get that, every fucking day of my fucking life.’
Stewart: ‘That there’s no funny women?’
Josie: ‘Yes. “There’s no funny women, are there, isn’t that funny!” “Isn’t it funny being a girl”, “Girls always talk about strange things”, “I don’t like women but I like you” EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE.’”—Josie Long, Robin Ince and Stewart Lee discussing sexism in comedy on Josie and Robin’s Utter Shambles podcast.

For those who know me well know that I am a big fan of a great deal of British comedy weather it be a recent Sitcom such as ‘Peep show’ or from the eighties ‘The Young Ones’
'The Young ones arrive in the eighties and due to its at times violent behaviour and swearing was branded as alternative comedy. Although it can be shocking at times it would have little impact on today's society as it has become the mainstream. The same contributors to this sitcom and others created 'The comic strip presents…' A comedy film narrative in less than an hour.
There are many aspects of the media that I believe to be entirely beneficial to the media. Although there are also some of which can be highly detrimental.
In this blog I shall document the aspects I admire and that inspire me and also the ideologies and tools in the media that I find abhorrent. Enjoy!
