If I Could Be a Magazine Editor

Plinky asked, “If you could be an edi­tor for any mag­a­zine, which would you choose?” Oh, that’s a dif­fi­cult ques­tion. There are mag­a­zines like Wired, that have enor­mous dis­tri­b­u­tion with­in a cer­tain demo­graph­ic and cov­er fas­ci­nat­ing sub­jects. Then there are lifestyle mag­a­zines that have the poten­tial to be very influ­en­tial among women, such as Real […]

I can’t imag­ine why their “share with blog” func­tion does­n’t include the prompt! I would­n’t wor­ry too much, as I can be fair­ly sure that I’ll nev­er be PICKED […]

Plinky: Three Songs I’d Sing at a Karaoke Bar

Their text actu­al­ly says, “If you pay me enough, I’d sing these songs.” I would­n’t have to be paid, though. I’ve nev­er actu­al­ly been in a karaoke bar, but I love to sing, so there are plen­ty of songs that I would be will­ing to sing! “Some­thing to Talk About” by Bon­nie Raitt “Hold­ing Me Tonight” by Car­ly Simon […]
