Turn In Your Assignments, Class!
Today is January 16th, The Day After Your Homework Assignments Were Due. We've gotten some projects back in, and they are really something! However, it seems like maybe some of you needed some extra time? Better late than never, we say. Better to be tardy than a complete failure. (We say that, too.) That is why we wanted to remind you to get in your stories and cameras and drawings.
Oh, and don't forget to put your name somewhere! We got a rather... remarkable colored pencil assignment the other day from someone who didn't include their name or put a return address on the envelope. We know they mailed it from the 02904 post office, but beyond that we don't know who they are. Don't be so shy!
We also want to tell you about our prints. For the first issue, the printing gurus at iolabs made a special run of 25 11X14 prints of our centerfold, seen below. We've only got about ten left, but they can be yours. They're $45 each plus shipping. E-mail us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you'd like one. (We've also got a handful of Headmaster t-shirts left, too. Drop us a line to purchase one while you can, unless you're a medium, in which case sorry!)
Oh, and we also wanted to let you know that this is your LAST backer update! From here on in we're moving in to the thrilling world of e-mail blasts. We're taking the liberty of signing you up for our monthly-or-probably-not-even-monthly notices, which will keep you up to date on Headmaster parties, upcoming issues, and more. If you don't want to be on the list, that's okay! We promise not to take it personally. Just click the 'unsubscribe' button when you get the first e-mail.
Surely you've gotten your copy of Headmaster by now--unless you're one of our six elusive backers who didn't give us your address and didn't show up to the party. (Naughty!) But we wanted to let you know that the magazine's now for sale in a few stores. In Providence you can find it at Mister Sister, Heir, and at the AS220 Project Space. In Toronto you can get it at Glad Day Bookshop, and in Baltimore you can find it at Atomic Books. Folks in New York and LA can but it at Bookmarc, and those of you in Boston and Provincetown can pick up a copy at Marc By Marc Jacobs.
Oh, and finally, those of you that couldn't make it to the party might want to know the recipe for the Headmaster, the cocktail we served at our Providence launch. It consists of 2 oz. Canadian whisky, 4 oz. ginger ale, 1 tsp. superfine sugar, and the juice of half a lemon. Pour the whisky, add the lemon juice and the sugar, stir with an antique straight razor, and top off with ginger ale. It is the perfect cocktail.
Here's wishing you a great spring term. And for God's sake don't
forget to hand in your homework!
