Here is my favourite line from the song, Being a Dickhead’s Cool:
“I’m currently running my own magazine and it’s all about my balls”.
We started The Alarmist in the delusion of making new writing more accessible to the public by drawing people in with brilliant design and more immediate, amusing and candid pieces. We’d then offer those same people the pieces with more depth of content, and they would be pleasantly surprised that this was something of infinitely more value to them than they otherwise would have thought.
In hindsight, we should’ve made a magazine all about our balls.
