Well, I'm sure some of you remember me in here trying to find writers for a new magazine.... three months and alot of work later, I give you CRHU.com

April issue came out last night whilst I was asleep and The Netherlands Bureau was awake, and like the small infant I am, I got up extra early and ran downstairs like a wee bairn on christmas morning.

Anyway, thoughts, opinions, queries? This is the thread.

Anyone with work they want to contribute should contact submissions@CRHU.com

Besides those three hard-to-read lines in the Jennifer Government review, this publication gets 4 and a half ninjas: ph34r.gif ph34r.gif ph34r.gif ph34r.gif

Seriously, the article on Pedophilia alone makes the magazine a success.

A suggestion: Add a donations page or at least include an address so readers who aren't that good at writing can still contribute to the site.

Oh, I love it! I normally don't get updated very often on world problems, and I'm not excited to go to CNN.com and look for the boring, selective articles there. Apparently seeing Muse live is something no one should *ever* miss out on. All of the articles were well-informed and fantastically written. I need some writing tips from you guys!

Muse I don't know about, I tried not to be too facist with the editing when it came to my own tastes in music.... but well, they certainly arn't to my tastes. biggrin.gif

Although they do have a rather large and dedicated following... Jesus... and I told her to be 'objective' *shakes head* laugh.gif

That was the most opinionated thing in there tongue.gif Then again, all of you seemed to get very impassioned. And you don't censor! Now we get to hurt the little children's eyes as THEY say. (heck, I knew swear words at seven, but that's probably just me.) tongue.gif

Yeah... I'm still trying to find someone willing to write a bad review. I mean, not everything is orgasmic dry.gif


Well, there isn't that much swearing... Although I can get a little carried away when I'm writing myself unsure.gif

I have the same problem with SFT. I'd love to write a negative review, really I would, but I just don't have the money to buy something I'm not sure I'd like.

Hey, you want negative reviews? Come to Uncle InKy. I get exposed to all kinds of cack at work - usually old cack, but sometimes someone drops a fresh new clanger into our stereo.

I'll keep ye posted.

Subtlety from an Aussie? Bloody hell.

And I was well aware that was an offer, I was adding my endorsement to it because everybody should care about my opinion. On everything.

Hmm. I wasn't anticipating such an offer - or, indeed, any offer at all - but I'd be more than willing to help out if I can. Lord knows I have few enough outlets for my creative ability (such as it is) at the moment.

Just give me an idea as to what my duties would entail, and I'll see what I can do, 'k? wink.gif

Very well Inky, the job would probably be you writing a music editorial of about 1000 words every month, you would also have control over the music content, but all the same you can't let you personal tastes get in the way of the work. Basically you'd be editing reviews, filtering out the really bad ones, writing that editorial and anything else you see fit to contribute to each issue, be it nothing or something, as long as the editorial job is forefilled (editing and the editorial) the rest is optional.

We have barely enough money to pay for the site, so no pay.... as yet I guess... but if there ever will be we're talking pretty long term. But what we can offer you is the words Music Editor and a nice E-mail address @CRHU.com.

Which is marginally more than nothing. Deadlines are the 23rd of every month, unless we change it for February/allow for the extra day in months with 31 days... Basically it's just enough time for me to whip up the layout and do my best at a few proof-reads....

It's alot of work some months, very little others... we need a music editor because 1, I know alot of the music writers and sometimes its hard for me to be as harsh in editing as I should be, 2, I'm trying to deligate a good portion of the actual editing because I didn't realize how time consuming making a layout would be. I'm using some pretty basic software to do it and it's very hard to make a clean/flashy magazine. But I'm working on that part of it, hopefully we'll see something more professional looking by the end of the month.

Anyway. The job is yours if you want it, of course, if you don't want to do the editing job you are still most welcome to write for us. But you definitely fit the bill if you want it.

Hey, Juice. Aside from the layout on the main page (which I already talked about on UF) the magazine is looking fabtabulous. The paedophile interview was absolutely fantastic, and it could have held the magazine up on its own. As it was, the other articles were pretty damned decent too. Great work.

I must say, the interview with the paedophile was... interesting. Didn't change my opinion, but I guess that's fair (and not really the point of this post anyway). *shrugs.* The whole zine looks pretty darn spiffy, although I couldn't read a good portion of Sean's article because the black of the image was behind the text, making it illegible. Could just be my screen though.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks guys. Apologies to Sean and everyone who's read the mag, I did notice that that area of text was pretty heard to read, but aside from making the text in that area white there was really nothing I could do. As Elgado suggested over at the UF forums, you can just highlight that portion to read it... It's not the greatest solution but we were running pretty close to deadline and I wasn't going to pass up having that pic in the background biggrin.gif

Next months issue promises to be a bit more professional looking... but we're a little hard pressed for content because we were all so relieved at getting the first issue up and going, I sort of failed to think about it for the last week unsure.gif

Don't worry, no delays or anything like that... we're just going to have to get out heads down and get to writing...

But having said that, anyone who considers themselves good at writing and has a few stray ideas, or an interesting article to submit, don't delay. Anything will be considered, although we do have a fairly nazi quality control biggrin.gif . Word documents in Times New Roman font, size 10. Just send them as attachments to submissions@CRHU.com.

Don't worry, we're not mean... also we're looking to pick up some regular columnists... , same address with a sample of your work. Columns are monthly at 1000 words, larger by prior arrangement. The deadline for all columns, articles, features and everything... be it that you're already writing for the magazine or you want to try your luck with us, is the 25th of April. If you miss deadline send it in anyway, although there are no promises that you'll get into that issue as once the layout is planned I'm sticking to it...

We're fairly elastic with the deadlines, if you think you have something that can't miss an issue, let me know ahead along with a projected word count and subject.

I've sent you a PM about it wink.gif

As for drawing, depending on your style, we might be able to incorporate some of your work into an issue. At the moment I've only really given thought to political cartoons and things like that, I guess it could be anything... but I mean, it would have to be illustrations for articles and stuff... thus far I've only really used photos in the layout. Although I do have this drawing that I was going to use for a front page at some time in the future, I'm just waiting for the story to actually be written...

So yeah, if you want to send samples by e-mail... I don't know... I had a hold of a really good ink artist, but she's all tied up at uni doing journalism and said she might not be able to even write for us for a few months... so yeah, I guess we need artists too... although it'd have to be pretty good art to go with the articles.

On the topic of the editorial post, whilst it is something I would love to do (and have done before), I'm not sure if I'd be able to. Writing the editorial wouldn't be too hard, but seeing as my online time is limited - as is my free time in general - I don't know if I could fill the entire post. I could help lighten the load, though - send me a small clutch of reviews each month, and I'll sharpen my editorial knife for some careful surgery. You'll barely even notice the incision...

I also have concerns as to whether or not I can send my files in Word format, this being a Mac and all (AppleWorks 6, baby). Pretty certain I can though, if I remember correctly. I'll turn something out for this month's deadline - just a review for now, methinks - and we'll see what you think, 'k?

And to hell with the money side of things - I worked for free for the university paper, and I'm more than ready to do it again. It's good experience, after all. Plus I enjoy it. I love music, and I'm an over-opinionated gobshite - perfect, no?

What kind of length are we talking for reviews? I'm used to about 250, but can work easily between 100 and 1000.
