Hi kiddies. You might notice things a bit different this
month - I have a lot of mailings to do this month so I'm trying to save a bit
of cash by reducing font sizes a bit. That doesn't mean that the articles
themselves are going to change, oh no. It means that issue sizes may decrease
just a little - while still giving you the same in-depth look at today's indie
music, books, rants and the like - always and as usual. I'm just trying not to
pump out 50 page issues anymore because the wad of cash I drop when I do hurts.
Physically. Badly. No, really - it does. Makes me cry.
This month we feature Coven 13 who hail from Salem, Mass.
Pianist Amanda and singer/songwriter Teissan join me in a chat to discuss their
debut release, Book Of Shadows, as well as future ideas, their pasts and
more. Also lots more reviewed this month by myself and my staffers. Keep your
music coming in folks.

and/or AIM, I haven't been available lately simply because I haven't had a
healthy day in over a month. Flu, colds, food poisoning (not kidding) - this is
probably the worst Winter I've had all my life. So in order to make sure this
issue gets out to all you waiting folks on time I'm all-nighting tonight from
sundown to sunrise. I still have some coffee left. The plan is to pump out as
much of this issue as I can before I collapse. I'll increase my online hours
again once my health gets better and depression fades.
So enjoy this month's issue. There's lots here. And keep the
music, fiction, essays and more coming!
Peace, love and all the trimmings
