2008 - 2011

So yeah, CRUCIAL 'ZINE has been pretty much dead for a while now.

Somewhere between moving back to Greece, getting stupid jobs, getting called up for military service and not being a student anymore, I lost my ability to coordinate this empire the way it should be run (with an blunt-clutching X'd up iron fist).

Anyway, you can catch Luke and Dom telling everyone how it is in the CB1 (or Australia or Sweden or wherever there's a good skate spot). Bobatron will carry on ranting about everything that fucks my shit up elsewhere.

You have been warned.

PS: Still have some shirts left. Give me a shout on facebook if you want to trade something in for a bit of cruciality.

Issue 7 in September

So, since the last update I had to go to the hospital again, with some even more painful shit to go through. It's ridiculous trying to get this ready right now, so I'll take a couple weeks off in August and get it ready then. It will be more or less a 'double-sized' issue with a ton more awesomeness to make it worth your while.

So yeah, see ya in September.

Excuses, excuses...

So here is a selection of reasons issue 7 won't be out until later in the summer

- I work now, so basically I'm not hanging around all day being angry at how shit everyone's musical preferences are these days. I tend to be more pissed off about people who get in my way in the morning.
- I had to have an operation just before Easter that put me out of commission for a month
- My pirated copy of Photoshop started acting all funny so I got rid of it and now I'm trying to get my head around Gimp. Why the fuck isn't there a 'theme' that makes it look more like Photoshop?
- I have under a week now to complete the rewrite of my thesis' introduction, so I don't want to piss away the last 5-6 years of my life.
- My new desktop computer allows me to waste hours on Call of Duty. All of them.
- It's summer here. Seriously, when the weather is consistently this good, you kinda don't want to sit in front of a computer screen all day painstakingly making layouts on Gimp.

See you soon.
