let's get our asses in gear for this one. now that dd is almost out of the way, i am hoping we can produce a zine within a couple of weeks. we need some meaty articles for all of our lovely, carnivorous readers. i will write one about summer and celby will write one about afi.... any other takers?
okay. so here's the deal. elise and i have been having some problems with getting organized. hopefully it will be out at the end of next week. it depends on tests/deadwood dick. ugh. this is annoying. stupid life.
hey, everyone! check out my sample journal for a tentitive new layout for the community. cute no? not quite finished. jaycub, i know you are good at this stuff, if you have any cool overrides let me know. yay.
so besides that... what i'm thinking for this is...
jenny cuts her post about love won out jaycub writes about the protest celby writes about rock roots elise writes about cruiserweight the last starfighter taylor taylor poem quin poem i know elsa had something and i think that's all we have so far oh wait ale's rant thomas' rant
uhm. so. i want to make a layout for this community that is relentlessXcore. yeah thats right. we are a core now. or something. ignore me.
ANYWAY. about issue number 6. celby and i actually have a list of grievences about numbero 5. the main complaint was missing actual articles. it was all fluff. so this is what we want to get rid of that was in #5 that we did not like -interviews did not go over very well. i did not like them. i don't think readers enjoy it as much as like... a reveiw or something. -like i said, not very solid. celby, you have stuff to add to this list right?
this is what we want to bring back that was missing in number 5 -jenny's feminist article. i liked the black hole thing, but i felt like we were missing something. and that something was the forcefulness of jenny's writing. 5 wasn't forceful. -thomas' rant. wtf dude? they used to be awesome. we can't really count on thomas for rants though, so i think we need to find someone that is just as angry and that we can count on to get the job done. i miss the anger/agression. al wrote a rant about politics, which is good but more humorous (in a weird colombian way) than it is angry.
and finally.... ideas for number 6. +featured band - this is our idea to replace interveiws. think we will do the last star fighter. we want to keep it to local bands, and people know and love tlsf. +featured artist - someone that contributes all the time and is generally awesome. our idea is taylor. stick in some of his work and a picture of his beautiful face. +valentines day article. i will write it. +protest.... something. +being awesome.
celby. add to this.
and. yeah. considering raising the price to two dollars. not sure.
if anyone other than celby and i care, or have ideas, or want to help at all. just. comment away. you know.
its okay jenny! we have been majorly slacking on this issue.
so im thinking in this issue: -just doverdrive reveiw (could ask about interveiw) and save thelaststarfigher for the next one. -bush article and those can be the "big articles"
i was thinking we could have consistant monthly: -rants by angry thomas -long cd reveiew -fashion trend thing!! ricco sauve? (i've wanted this since the beginning but have been too lazy to get it together... involves taking pictures)
i feel professional making the first post of any importance in this community that no one has joined, but, i need suggestions. how to incorporate more music into our zine with any real interviews and without making a million music reveiws. difficult....
