Subscription Conscription

I think we are going to start offering subscriptions to Sorry for Snake.

I met a guy when I was first starting out in the advertising and graphics biz who had started his own surfing magazine. One of the big ones. He told me that magazines should not start offering subscriptions or ads or anything tricky until they'd published and gotten rid of three issues.

I don't think we are going to have ads, but I think it's time to start letting people have subscriptions. It looks like we are going to be here for at least another year, so that's what we're gong to offer. Unfortunately, I won't be able to give one of those nifty discounts that other magazines/journals offer, but I will throw in chapbooks or something. I'll offer them in May, in time for our next issue, which is number four!
People are always surprised when I tell them I am vegetarian.
I use about a square foot of leather and two chickens a year, but for the most part, I am pretty hard core about it. Animal rights are very important to me.
I eat cheese, but I try to get the expensive kind from people who treat their animals well. I love cheese, so I'm probably not as careful as I should be about it.
But it's not about extremism, it's about moderation. Human beings are not supposed to eat that much meat, America! Even if you care about corporate welfare more than animal welfare, you shouldn't be eating animals more than once a week. A little goes a long way. You're crazy putting bacon on everything. The big factory farms creating methane and other ecological disasters are because you're poisoning your body every day with too much meat. It's gross. If Americans cut their animal consumption in half, which would still be a lot of meat, the world would change.

Seriously, people. Does Sophie Monk look unhealthy?
