Welcome to the jungle

For each issue we make a concession to the 20th century and ask one of our favourite future-boys to redesign the website in response to the contents of the issue. After reading all the words and looking at all the pictures, webexpert Gavin Wray (pictured) came up with *this*, you know like you can see all around you.

Letters to the editors, other people called Bristow edition.

The wonderfully named Heather Bristow writes:

I am interested to know where you go your name from??? And if you ever have a team that plays in the quiz at the Hare & Hounds in Kings Heath?? :)

Danny replies:

Hello Heather

The name is a filthy sex act, we used this for several reasons:

1. Me and co-editor Jon are fans of 80’s working class icons
2. Me and co-editor Jon are fans of filthy sex acts
3. To stop ourselves taking ourselves too seriously

as far as I know the magazine has never used the name at the H&H quiz, but Dirty Bristow is quite widely known term so could have been anyone.


P.S can we use your email (with the address taken out) as a blog post?

And apart from getting the bit about the quiz wrong (we did enter, and we came second), that was that.


Are you called ‘Bristow’, do you have a question for us?

Issue Two Deadline

“I love deadlines, I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly past”

Douglas Adams

The writing deadline has been and gone and we’re a little light on all the entries that we want for next issue, but that’s ok. To be perfectly honest we havn’t been doing our jobs very well for the last few weeks. Danny’s in the process of throwing his whole life into a mindless chaos for what seems like shits and giggles and Jon is wrestling with other projects.

So lets start again shall we the new absolutely final deadline is Nov 1st.

Thank you so much to all the pople that worked really hard to meet deadline and have already sent stuff. We have been lax latley but have some really exciting ideas for next issue and another chance to show your suport while getting pie eyed drunk real soon. If you’re thinking of getting going now, here’s the full sp.

Tell everyone we need your words by Nov 1st.
