I didn't mean t take this long to post on here again, but...well...it looks like I did let it take this long huh? I was kinda busy there for a second, I got hitched on 10/31/08...since then things have settled down a bit and I'm been tossing a lot of ideas around in my head for this here zine thingy I'm trying to put together. I'm finally going to attempt to put some words on paper this coming weekend and see what I can come up with. I think that the first issue is going to be number ".5" as it's going to be smaller than the actual first issue. So this will be almost like a "preview" issue of what's to come. The reason I'm doing the smaller/preview issue first is just so I can have something out there...something to start the circulation and hopefully, get some feedback on. I'd really like it if people actually came to me with contributions for the upcoming first issue as well. Also, I'd like to have a "reviews" section and I'd probably have a better chance at receiving material to review if people have a paper zine to look at before hand, to know that I'm seriously going to be reviewing their product and not just trying to get free stuff to sell on eBay. Ok, that's it for now. I'll try to make another post over the weekend with an update on how things are progressing. Take care.

I'm getting married on Friday...10/31/08. I'm getting pretty excited I must say. There's so much stuff that still needs to be done between right now and 6pm Friday night...it's mind boggling. I know everything will work out good in the end and it's going to be the time of my (and my wife to be's) life. I'm seriously so 'effing excited, words cannot describe what I'm feeling right now. I'm not really worrying about things I have planned for the 'zine for the time being, everything's focused on the big day. HALLOWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN!!!! >: }

Ever since I was a senior in high school I've wanted to do a zine. It started with me first getting into hardcore music and the scene that goes along with it. I'd try to pick up a new zine every time I'd go to a show. I love the feeling they have, knowing the time, the effort, and the heart that goes into making them...that's what makes them special...knowing that someone, somewhere is devoting a lot of time and energy into making this small photocopied piece of literature and they're doing it for the fun of it...not to make a lot of money or to get famous. They're just doing it because it feels good, to be doing something creative and letting someone into their little world. I never did get around to making one of my own back then, but I still think about it a lot. So...I've decided to take the plunge and see what I can do. I honestly have no idea how long it's going to take me to even put out the very first issue, but rest assured it'll happen.

I've created this blog in an attempt to chronicle everything that's going on with me and with the zine. Even if no one reads it, I'll have it for myself to look back at and see what I was doing at different points throughout the zine's production. 

Since the zine is going to be a representation of myself, it's going to revolve around what's important to me and the things that I'm into; my family and friends, skateboarding, snowboarding, music, art...and whatever else is going on inside my head at any given time (which might possibly scare you, be warned). 

So that's it for now, I'm off to get ready to go to a haunted house with my family (and hopefully some friends too). 

Take care...
