Perdiz Magazine – Issue 5
PERDIZ is a magazine about people and the things that make them happy. A compilation of amazing stories from common people. A survival manual without magic formulae. A collection of beautiful things. A publication of social activism with a positive tinge. A collectable object. It’s a game, a story with a happy-ending. And it’s also a virus that, like yawning in the Tube and laughter between friends, is catching. Happiness is contagious.
These days, being labelled as boring is a near synonym for social exclusion. People flee from it into their iPhone screens and the entertainment industry. We suffer from thaasophobia – the fear of being idle – and in order to avoid it, we are capable of even the most extraordinary things; from collecting tiki artifacts to becoming a merman, breaking Guinnes World Records, such as The World’s Fastest Toilet, founding micro-nations, building a bouncy castle made of breasts or cooking a steak with electricity. In fact, boredom is nothing but the precursor to wild flights of fancy!
