Evening Explorers!

Well, as promised, here's the definitive list of ideas we've had pitched for Issue 1 of The Global Explorer.

delorentoes, insane_pyro_grl, scarlett_h and kassie_opia -- Photoshoppers

gothic_veils -- History of tweed article

45eugenia -- Howard's top jazz influences, complete with fake jazz musicians.

vous_et_moi -- A Brief history of Jazz and 'Zookeepers Find the Egg of Mantumbi'

ziozio -- mustache care and tips on how to win over Lady Love

nicely_boosh -- Booshical-agony-aunt-column-thing. Perhaps letters to Bollo.

justwolf -- Naboo's recipes and dating advice for gorillas.

duckfight -- A sort of 'Time Out' review of completely made up bars and clubs

insane_pyro_grl -- Interviews with Old Gregg and The Moon

sonormalithurts -- Watercolours of Baileys etc.

pure1maginati0n -- Deputy Sheriff of Stationery Village

letsmakeacrepe -- How to make the perfect Trumpet Sock

tightcords -- An expose on the plight of mink making fur coats in sweat shops

dirnt_y -- 'Back in the day', complete with tash wearing londoners and a review of how to preserve socks

donny_scum -- Pen of the month

storytelling -- Tony Harrison's travels

If you're on the list and you don't want to be, please comment saying just that ASAP! Or, if you don't think you can make the deadline, let us know that too!

The deadline is midnight next Saturday 10th May.

I'll make another post straight after this one where the comments will be screened. This is where you should comment with your material for the magazine. If it's a writey piece then if you could just post it as text in the comment that would be ace. If it's just pictoral goodies you're bringing, then post them in comments too. If it's a writey piece but you've got images to accompany it, post it all in a comment and we'll get our photoshoppers onto it.

Any questions, comment here!

So remember, if you don't want to be on this list, let us know ASAP so we can get our heads sorted!

Love and Explorations from your mods

So... re: photoshopping, are people going to send us articles and we can make nice headers and illustrations and such? Cause I could do that, if it'd be helpful.

That's pretty much it! And we need graphics for the home page that will provide links to the different areas of the site. And for the smaller articles there will probably need to be some photoshopping of graphics to accompany them. We'll let you know as soon as we get some stuff in for you to do XD

Hey, I have a question.
Is it all right if I layout my article myself? I'd rather have the control of my piece, if that's all right with everyone.
If it's okay, in photoshop, what size layout, 10x8, 17x11?

I'm an expert in photoshop if you need some more helpers in that also.

I'm far from an expert in photoshop and I have no idea what size the layout should be but I'd hazard a guess at the smaller one. And of course that's fine for you to format your own stuff, so long as it's in a .jpeg type format :] Thanks for offering up help on the photoshop side, I'll add you to the list XD

Is it too late to do something? I was thinking I could do a recurring article on Tony Harrison's travels. Definitely included will be a rating on how sick each excursion made him haha I can wait until the next issue though :)

Well if it's to be a recurring feature then I very much think you'll be welcome to start in issue one :] So long as you can make the deadline then we're very much looking forward to reading your contributions XD

I very much doubt that the trumpet sock will have been started by this issue's deadline.

Probably the next issue or the one after :)

That sounds fine, who's perspective are you writing it from? We're having a 'Naboo's Recipe's' section so it would probably fit in best there. When you're done just post the text and pictures separately in a comment on the next post in the comm :] Looking forward to it xx

yeah, it would fit there but i was thinking of the "literally page" (name will be worked on)
where ill take boosh quotes or phrases and turn them into real forms.
e.g. the angry muffin.
and ill have a new one each week or whenever needed

Sounds like a plan, it could go in our 'things that aren't satirical' box?

Recurring articles can go in the box and everything's Boosh related so it'll fit in fine :]
