If one has been watching t.v or listening to the radio or reading newspapers in Ireland since Saturday, you will note the huge coverage of the future president of China's visit to our island. It's massive, it's international news, the soon to be most powerful man in the world has chosen this little country to establish trade relationships with Europe and the west. EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT IT...... Except the real life, living in China, Chinese person I was talking to to-day. NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT IT.
The sooner the Irish times people start reading this blog and get me on the staff, the better.
Although my end game with this blog is to write for the Sunday independent magazine. It thinks it's the sunday times magazine but it's not. It follows this simple formula.
Three main sections.
1. Take the piss out of an attractive Irish female. It might me an Irish model, t.v presenter, actress, anyone in the public eye really.
2. Take the Irish model they slagged off the previous week and do a photo shoot, usually in black and white, featuring that lady draped over some tables in a mansion in Kildare or something.
3. Witty look at the Irish middle class intertwined with some aspect of the recession.
I'd write for the Sunday world magazine either. It normally goes like this.
LOL. ADELE. LOL. TAYLOR SWIFT. HAIR. LOL. DIET. SOMEONE FROM FAIR CITY LOL JEANS LOL DAVID BECKHAM. TV LISTINGS LOL.
They are the only two I can do because they are the only papers we get on a Sunday. We get the sunday times sometimes but it makes my dad uncomfortable because, although it's an irish edition, it's an English paper. That's a bit rich coming from the man who bought the news of the world for 15 years though.
This post has too much of my opinion in it. I'm sorry. It's almost like something that would appear in the independent magazine. It's neo-post modern or something.
