Remember my Open SHTF Response to a Journalist’s Questions post that I wrote responding to a woman’s questions about survivalism amongst young men? You know, for a Details magazine article she was writing. It has been published. Yeah, if you read Survival Blog than chances are high that you have already read the article, but if you haven’t, this is the link you want to read the article in full.
These are my thoughts on the article. First off, I think it’s just totally wicked cool that SHTF blog has reached newsstand stardom. I was a bit miffed at first by the “Meet the Yuppie Survivalists” title – not quite what I expected, but I don’t typically read Details magazine. I don’t fancy myself a yuppie – an aspiring yuppie perhaps. But I was able to move beyond the “yuppie” title when I saw what other articles this piece was published with. I mean, just check their titles:
- OMG! It’s the Gossip Guys,
- Everything You Need to Know to Buy the Perfect Watch,
- Inside the Twisted World of Revenge Porn, and
- Do You Have Douchebag Hair?
LOL – “Do You Have Douchebag Hair?” – wtf is THAT!?
Anyway, as I started thumbing to the yuppie article I was immediately struck by the freakin’ nasty perfume stench pouring off each page – blech! This magazine is for metrosexuals – no doubt there. As hard as I try to picture it though, I can’t imagine a pile of metrosexuals running around in survival mode. I just can’t.
I think the article could have been better if it had included pictures of scantily clad survival babes, but whatever. I was also a little disappointed that more of my, what I thought were more important, comments were not included in the article. But hey, it was written for a certain population, and maybe my other thoughts were not worthy of this audience. Whatever, it’s all good.
I still can’t imagine why someone would vacuum seal an ipod, though. If SHTF that’s about the last thing I’d worry about. Hell, I don’t even own one, so it’s a non-issue. Don’t plug in – plug OUT!
