Oak | Vague paper - issue #2 the populist state

Where do I start? Vague Paper is a British magazine, of sorts. It is described as a "farce" magazine, but that is not all that it is. It uses tounge-in-cheek humour, a sequence of traditional "scam" messgaes we recieve in our junk mail folder everyday, and an overall quirky take on things that have happened, will happen, and should or could never happen. Strangly, it also has an excellent mix of cool (but over the top) fashion ads. This is more than a magazine, this is art. But not art art. Like out-dated speakers that play a recording of toilet flushing to the Italian anthem (an actual "art" piece, by the way) kind of art.

Michael Roberts, fashion editor of Vanity Fair magazine, probably has more than a few nice words to say about fashion. But he lets all of his un-nice thoughts loose within the confines of this farcical poem, fully illustrated with his collage cartoons. Naughty, hilarious and absolutely on target.

It was the last month of what seemed to be the longest Presidential election in American history. If it were not for the interesting characters running for office, it would have been the most boring election in U.S. history as well. As the days got closer to the actual vote, the excitement began to overflow—and then out of the blue a well known political figure threw his hat into the ring, Mad Magazine's mascot, Alfred E. Neuman joined the race—Ok, he is a illustration and therefore some would say unfit to run the country, and he's also an idiot, which would normally be another strike against his candidacy if it wasn't for the fact that American tax payers are accustomed to having an idiot as President already. I tried to contact Mr. E. Neuman for comment about these allegations, but all I got was this stupid magazine and a note which said, "What Me Worry?"
