Aspire Update 001

These will be the first update for the zine. Life gets hard when you don't have job. Hahaha. Anyways, the interviews are going good right now. I have finished two bands, the others are still on the process. First issue will feature a reprint of an interview with a local band. Still, I need some writings to fill-up the pages of the zine. Any help, just send message here or at aspire.zine@gmail.com And yeah, I also need ads. Ads are for free. Send them at the email address I provided.

I have a feeling that I will not reach the target date for the release of the first issue. But I am still hoping. If not, I guess I will just release it by early next year. Probably January, serves as my birthday gift for myself. Hahaha. Anyways, watch out for shows these last days of 2009 and early 2010. More touring bands, more shows, more bands playing, more good times! See you at the pit!
