We love to appear cultured here at Newsstand – we read with great fervour all the magazines dealing with high culture that pass through our doors, devouring content about fine dining, wine, the classical arts and more. Though this may seem to some to be facade, a fake front to mask out true love of pies, pints and football, we believe that if you immerse yourself in something for long enough, eventually you come to actually be that thing. In the same way that undercover investigators can have difficulty separating their fake and real personas, so we can fake our way into being experts on culture until we actually become knowledgeable and erudite.
The best way to fake being cultured is to be exposed to real culture, and that is where the rather wonderful Acumen comes in. It is undeniably ‘proper’ culture, being filled with moving and elegantly constructed poetry and insightful analysis. By reading every copy of Acumen we feel a little more cultures, to the point where we can slip the word ‘erudite’ into our writing as above, and not feel too pretentious about it. Acumen is perfect for the true poetry lovers out there, those of us who are faking it and those who simply love the written word. Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’re off to smoke a pipe and philosophise about the meaning of life over a pie and pint at the pub. NB
