Update September '07

Hey everybody,

wow--I guess it's been a really long time since my last post here. 3 months! It's been a bit of a hectic summer for me, so I guess I needed to take some time out and adjust myself with my new job and and just live life in general. That doesn't mean Take Your shot is dead! If anything it's quite the opposite, right now I feel like I have all the energy in the world to put into a new issue. I will actually start working on it this next fall.

So this next issue, number #4, will be quite different from what I've done so far. I've convinced my self that this time I'll distance myself from my 80s youth crew obsession and try to do something different. So far it's has all been about fast hardcore and clean living with Take Your shot, and these things are cool of course, but I now feel like it is also a good time to try and do something else--without forgetting one's roots, of course!

This time, other people's help will definitely be incorporated in the making of the zine. Luckily I am surrounded by bright individuals who have skills I can only dream of, and their help and influence will definitely be there. In other words, this issue #4 will be less of a personal zine and more of a friends zine. We'll see... Also there will be more writing in the new zine, you know about all kinds of stuff that's related with the hardcore scene in one way or another...


Actually this post was much much bigger, but once again I was framed by the Internet and it all got lost somewhere, somehow. Oh wel... I guess it wans't meant to be. Also, it just serves to show that print zines are so much better than their online versions.... that's for sure!
