The muffins were mouldy and had to be put down.

I baked those fresh! Say what you like, but when you insult my baking abilities...

i'd just like to say that i really enjoy these and i'd like to congratulate you and the rest of the contributors on your efforts.

the only thing i dont like is that i never see them, because i dont ever visit the pit. it would be cool if this was downloadable from the front page, or better yet, as an announcement across all forums.
doing so would probably generate more interest in it,
and more interest means more readers,
and more readers means more contributors,
and more contributors means more topics,
and more topics means more interest...

anyway, good job to all of you

Is it sad that I squealed like a girl when I saw my name mentioned in the Services section? >.>
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

Sorry I didn't round to adding S&L's competitions to this months' issue. When the next WotM comes up, I'll be sure to PM you straight away with the thread and details so you can implement it in the next issue. I might add a poem as well, if that's cool?

maybe it has something to do with there being nothing to put in it. not many people even signed up to do anything this time around. there were 5 things submitted, plus 3 more from me, plus the Mod Q&A that blue_strat was supposed to do. that makes 9 things. there were twice as many last time.

if i could put in my two cents, i'd say hold it off a bit longer, get a bit more stuff, and put it out on Christmas, and make it a holiday themed issue. i'm sure we could get a few people to write something holiday related.

I could do that. What kind of Christmas-themed articles are we talking about? I could do something about the constant christmas music being played in shops?

It can be rock, pop or eletronic music, if it have the climate that I described. But I'd love an instrumental rocks with a slow guitar.
