FROM THE EDITOR…

Dear Readers – as you know, Termbo has become…stagnant, let’s say, over the past year or so. No one is more painfully aware of that fact than myself. When TB began, I envisioned it a true online zine, with issue length updates and a decidely print-informed layout and aesthetic. As time has gone by, that idea has slowly faded and become harder and harder to pull off via time constraints, staff downsizing/disinterest and other mitigating factors. I never imagined TB as a blog, but it’s becoming ever more clear that in order to make this thing work at all anymore, and provide the readers/contributors/bands/labels with any sort of timely feedback, we’re going to have to start utilizing this thing more. Fear not, we’ll still have larger scale review updates, interviews and (hopefully) the return of some long-running colums, but in-between those features myself and the staff will be updating the blog with smaller-size reviews and posts, just to keep this ball rolling forward. It’s only fair and actually makes a lot of sense at this point. At least to me. I feel incredibly guilty about how shoddily the website side of Termbo has been run the past couple of years, so this will hopefully fulfill the need Termbo is here to serve and help me get out of a rut. We have a huge backlog of reviews we hope to get caught up with in short order and hopefully this blog can become a weekly habit. Enough whining, thanks everyone for their help and understanding, be sure to bookmark this page and on with the show…
