Geez is camped outside

If you’re a Geez reader and still like shiny things, including Oprah’s O magazine, you’re not alone. Trudy J. Morgan-Cole, a blogger from Newfoundland is your friend. She writes,

These two magazines sit uneasily on my coffee table together, as if they’re the two hemispheres of my brain — different, yet each necessary. Not that they’re the right and left hemispheres — politically, the editorial slants of both O and Geez could easily be labelled “left” though Geez is certainly more radical. O resides in a comfortable, well-decorated corner of the political left, sort of like the American Democratic party, while Geez is camped outside in the parking lot in a cardboard box. [See full entry here.]

Here at Geez headquarters, we occasionally flip through O too. Like the time we did a Geez take on her home renovations suggestions. - posted by Aiden Enns

  1. Aww (blush) … I hoped you’d notice!! Thanks for posting this … I wasn’t reading Geez in Summer 06 so didn’t see the Oprah home reno piece. But my husband was reading my latest Geez the other day and asked “Can you get back issues of these?” so I might read it yet…

  2. Yes Trudy, you can still get back issues, but only online. FYI, you can see an outline of each issue through this link, http://www.geezmagazine.org/issue10/ , and you can order them here.

  3. I love this picture. It speaks to the manic personality of the magazine market, and also to all of us who revel in that very thing. In a sense, my relationship to magazines reflects my own varied identity. Having publications that “talk back,” like Geez and others do, makes the world of words so much more dynamic.

  4. I share a similar secret, I enjoy forward thinking like Geez magazine offers but often find myself camped in front of the tabloid section at Chapters. So sad. It’s a habit I’m trying to break. :)
