    Title: SWAMPLAND
    Format: MAGAZINE
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    Swampland is a new Australian music magazine.

    Run by a small team, the project was sparked by a frustration at the current lack of print platforms for lengthy, intelligent music journalism. They’re not interested in click counts or amassing vast amounts of content. They won’t publish listicles or irrelevant best-of lists and they're not tied to the PR cycle.

    Instead, they're featuring some of the most interesting music writing and photography in the country.

    Their main aim is to create a space for good writers to make good work and to have a reason to pursue pieces that take quite a long time and quite a lot of thought. They're interested in work that can retain its worth over months, years, even decades; work that asks important questions about Australian music and wonders what that says about our larger cultural context.

    They cover all genres, Australian locations and periods in our music history. They're paying contributors as well as they can for their efforts.

    #17 : UNICORN

    In the Harry Potter series of fantasy novels, students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry are offered an elective course on Care of Magical Creatures. The students study flobberworms, fire crabs, as well as the unicorn, a magical white creature with a single horn and golden hooves, which inhabits the Forbidden Forest.

    For Harry’s eleventh birthday he’s gifted a snowy owl with majestic yellow eyes for transporting his wizard mail. Dragons, rats, werewolves, spiders, snakes, cats, and magical plants such as the violent Whomping Willow play leading roles in an enchanted world, the type of world we all wish we could inhabit all of the time, not just in books and on screens.

    Psychiatrist Carl Jung describes it as a “soul-sickness whose full extent and full import our age has not as yet begun to comprehend”. Indeed, we read fantasy books and watch Hollywood animations of talking rabbits and warlord cats in a quest to temporarily fill some sort of mythical void in our life. There’s something missing – that feeling of childhood enchantment, or magic; that ‘other’.

    Interestingly, a key feature of fantasy that differentiates it from other genres is the non-human element. Remove the mythical creatures and magical plants from the Harry Potter scripts and you’re left with a story about a boy who goes to school. Want to live a more enchanting life? Then befriend nature. It’s calling you.

    #18 Fruit Fly

    What do humans and fruit flies have in common? Apparently, quite a lot. Our genetic makeup, scientists say, is unusually similar. But is there a common link be- tween every human on the planet and every flower? Or every human on the planet and every mineral? Of course, we’re householders, you could say. We share a home, which is our planet, Earth.

    Cultural critic Neil Postman once wrote: “Have you not noticed that you are on the same ship?” Postman liked to think of Earth as a spaceship; one that has been bobbing about in space for billions of years. And housed on this spaceship are millions of species, from sunflowers to fruit flies to people. “The story of Spaceship Earth has the pow- er to bind people,” writes Postman in his book, The End of Education. “It is a story of interdependence and global cooperation, of what is at the core of humanness; a story that depicts waste and indifference as evil, that requires a vision of the future and a commitment to the present.”

    Indeed, to accept that we’re stuck on this one big orbit- ing planet together is powerful enough to transcend race, gender, religion, wealth, and any other category we deploy to divide and conquer. We’re crew members, caretakers of a vulnerable space capsule, and this comes with enormous responsibility. It forces us to forget our points of difference and get on with the job.
