REMEMBER US?

So, I was reading one of the V/Search “ZINES!” issues the other day and someone said something along the lines of the erratic publication schedules of zines is what makes them so endearing and personable. Or some crap. Totally wrong, that’s the most incredibly annoying part of zines. Dependability, that’s what we want, and something Termbo has failed to give back to the readers, labels, bands and contributors this year. An unavoidable set of circumstances made extracurricular activities of the time-consuming variety a near impossibility for much of the year. And I was honestly planning on taking a break over the summer as well, but it all just turned into a giant clusterfuck. Anyway, this isn’t a fucking Livejournal here, enough about my bullshit. I hope to close out the Termbo year with more rapid updates to get us up to speed, including but not limited to: Demo Zone//Tape Delay (on deck), another reviews section, Rob Vertigo’s SOV ‘TV As Eyes’ fearture, an interview with Fashionable Idiots Records, The Life and Times of Gary Wrong, and as much more as we can fit in. It was tough getting these reviews up; I was out of practice and after being off the bike for so long it was tough to get the wheels turning again. A lot of these reviews are painfully and embarrassingly late, some are rather recent, but I just had to cut the cord and post what we had finished. There’s another bunch just waiting to go, but I figured I just needed to post something to shake the rust off and get back in the routine. I offer sincere apologies to the staff who wrote some of this stuff nearly a year ago, to all the labels and bands who waited patiently and to whatever readership we have left for being absent for so long. And label/band guys, if your record wasn’t in this section, there’s more to come soon, but if you want to e-mail the editor and ask what his problem is or when/where your record will be up to bat, please do. Also, please keep in mind anything sent to Termbo is also fodder for our pal Chuck Barrels’ column in MRR, so keep an eye out there as well. Oh yeah, reviews are in two sections: A through M and N through Z. That’s it for now, we’ll see you soon, and we’re still looking for help if you’re absolutely 100% serious about it (no more flakes please). We’d also like to wish Kamala a speedy recovery from his surgery. Until we meet again…

HEY YO

So, as you can tell, I broke the message board. It will be back in a minute, all is not lost. “The Editor” just shouldn’t be allowed to have a website that he has no idea how to fix. Our best IT guy is on the job right now. If that doesn’t work, I will be employing the Ultimate Nullifier and/or Cosmic Cube to take us back in time before this all even happened. For real. In other news, there should be an actual reviews update as soon as we get this other stuff fixed as well. Seriously. Our hiatus is over. We’ll talk more soon. Termbo = not dead. Yet.

HEY YO
