Black Bubblegum are fucking dead. Somehow for now this blog will have to do (online zine?)

Everything is open again; there is no existing deadline. We already have more than enough ideas to work with, so let us get back to the art.

We now have plenty of time to work on and complete the articles discussed prior. The photo album edition will be completed and published simutainously, perhaps as a supplemental. The concepts of this zine are still wide open, and defining everything would destroy that creative freedom.

Continue posting pictures and such - we will make things up as we go along. This is not the end of the road, just a slight detour.

Thank you for all of your continued support. Let us get back to chipping away at the debut edition. This is for us, we will make this work.

Update From Adam

I began orientation training with the United States Government on April 26th. In my absence, I must roll zine duties over to first editor-in-chief Drin. As of April 29th, we only have two photos (posted below) submitted for the upcoming edition. I do not know what happened to the people who had offered to collaborate with the Black Bubblegum staff, but I no longer have the resources to enforce the given content deadline.

I will move deadline to Monday, May 1st; however, at this point I am unsure of how much this will help us get the content needed to print this zine. All the time and love in the world is irrelevant if everyone cops out.

Unless we receive the contributions offered to us prior to this post, the fate of Black Bubblegum edition one is in serious limbo.

Important! Read!

Due to time constraints, articles for the first edition of Black Bubblegum are to be placed on hold until next edition. The "Photo Album Edition" will be the first edition.

What we need from you is one photograph. It can be of anything, as long as:
1) You took it yourself.
2) It is unaltered in any way.

There are no parameters on the subject matter. As long as you like it, or it means something to you, or just simply looks cool, we will accept it for publication. Full credit will be given to the prints we use for this issue, and free issues will be handed out to contributers.

Current contributers include:

We need one more for publication; this issue will be eight pages long (current estimate), and seven photos are needed. The first page will include an introduction, credits and artists description of their photo.

Anyone can contribute. Ask your friends to check us out. Anything we do not use will be archived for future editions, so no worries. Post your contributions on this blog, and they will go into layout from here. This is a private blog, open only to contributers of the zine, so no worries about some dope jocking your shit. This operation is air-tight.

If you would like to contribute, or are interested and have questions, text Adam. <13107807550>
