frankie you're my *hero*

one of my favourite mags around is frankie...
although they say they are aimed at 20-somethings
& i am well (and truly) deep in my 30's, i still love this mag !

it actually reminds me of my favourite magazine
from my teenage years
an australian one called HERO....
anyone... anyone... bueller... bueller... ???

i couldn't find any images of it on the web,
& fear that without a big rummage under my parents home
i may not be able to unearth any copies i may have saved,
but how i loved it -
i poured over every page: the design, the articles,
the poetry... everything about it spoke to me
(and yes, unless i'm mistaken,
its 80's design would still stand up today)

AND when forming one of
my dearest friendships in my early 20's
with the wonderful sarah b
we discovered not only
our mutual love of music (anything neil finn)
7 inch single collecting (now i-tune downloads)
and so many other movie, craft, and art related matters...

most of all, & even though it was only around
for a few short years in the eighties, we both read HERO...

this is what truly sealed our friendship !

we both read frankie now
and today, after all this rambling, and trips down memory lane
i must thank the fabulous frankie mag
for the plug of my work in their newest edition.
frankie, you are my new hero...
