Nobody tells me what to do

The first music video that made a big impression on me was Love Is A Battlefield by Pat Benatar. She ran away from home, went to some night club and started throwing drinks in guys’ faces. At least that’s how I remember it. I couldn’t quite make out if it was an official occupation, but it seemed like Pat had a pretty cool job. The same year Girls Just Wanna Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper was a big hit. Again a bunch of girls that stayed up all night doing whatever the hell they felt like. Even though I was still young, I decided to mould my life after these videos. I would never let anybody tell me what to do and to party as often as humanly possible. I thought one of the best ways to always do whatever you want to, is start up your own business. In hindsight a pretty naïve thought. Before you know it your days are filled with tax forms, invoices, meetings and other stuff you never see in music videos. Still, running your own company isn’t that bad. Just as long as you keep things in your own hands. This magazine is made without the meddling of some big publisher who’s telling us what to do. And it happens to be that I absolutely love making magazines. So even though it’s not the same as “party  every night”, to me it still comes pretty close to one of those music videos.
 

Nah, daft ending…
