Happy Birthday, Mr Whitman!

Walt Whitman, May 31, 1819 - March 26, 1892

Backward I see in my own days where I sweated through fog with
     linguists and contenders,
I have no mockings or arguments, I witness and wait.

-excerpt from Song of Myself, written 1855

Time Out Interview

We are hopefully less than a week away from chapter 1 of the Rashomon Effect hitting the streets. What with our full time jobs and being gay for a day this weekend there’s been a slight delay. But we’ve had some blinding submissions, even our very own Colin Delaney has become a regular hairy Byron.

We’ve also had the great pleasure of working with artist Meekins on the cover art for issue 1, and she’s also been kind enough to create and donate some other pieces for the magazine.

In the meantime check out the interview Adam and Grant gave to Time Out Amsterdam last month which was published in the August issue.

It’s nearly there.

Stories of pirates both on sea and the internet, lonely old men, cutting chicken, running with the bulls, crossing South American borders, the six word challenge, it’s all taking shape. Thank you for your patience. In the meantime check out Polar Bear. We could be jilted lovers… we asked to interview him, he never responded. Still ‘Jessica’ has it all: girls, football and words. His flow is ill too. As Adam would say he’s ‘well poety’.
