    The mag should be out early next week. As for the shirt, just be persistant. Butch can be hard to get a hold of. You could always order one from Skim City if you run out of patience.

    When I first ordered a subscription from them a few years ago I missed 1 or 2 issues after my check had been cashed. I never got any response from emails but I finally got ahold of them on AIM. Once I did, they deeply appologized for the confusion and got my missing issues right out to me along with a few stickers. Sometimes mistakes just happen...

    weird you should mention this,
    i just e-mailed butch a few minutes ago about some stuff

    any idea if the new issue has shots from that ridiculous day at aliso profiled in FSM (sept 23)? one of the photogs on the beach said he was shooting for skim mag...paulo and geo got some really epic wraps at the main peak and i'm hoping someone nailed the shots

    also just some shots of the sets marching in would make a great two page spread

    maybe aaron scored some video?

    The Aliso (Vic) contest is in the mag. And yes, the best of the best shots from the staff photographers are in it as well.

    Dear Butch-

    You don't return my calls either or emails either. Magazine making isn't as difficult as you are making it on yourself. There are things called media kits, and production schedules. When you make these things, and abide by them, you CAN run a profitable magazine that people enjoy.

    Love Gay Dave

    he should just hire more staff to help him out so that he can get things done quicker. this would also make his customers happier so that he won't lose them to other companies such as skimshop or skimcity, therefore generating more income

    I don't think skimshop or skimcity are even on skim mags' radar as far as competition. The only thing that would be remotely close to skim mag is FSM. And the main thing diferntiating between those two is one is a print publication and the other is not... And since my last post wasn't clear enough, hiring a staff requries paying a staff. This industry is starved for cash as it is, how do you expect him to hire a staff?

    i meant they should hire 1-3 more people to take care of things besides the magazine, like the apparel and such

    regardless of how many people he hires or what their job descriptions are, how do you expect him to hire a staff when he probably barely breaks even on making the magazine in the first place?

    if he did hire a staff i seriously doubt his reader base or retail customers would increase, or be affected at all, so if he's barely breaking even and he starts hiring staff without making any more money then he does now, skim mag will go under

    well when in business sometimes its bitter than sweet. it might ber hard at first with more staff, but he will be pumping more magazine flow could get everything out faster, maybe more mags to ship around the world if people are interested. I just think that in the long run, skim mag would profit from it. "Dont be afriad to go out on a limb. That's where the fruit is." - H. Jackson Browne

    I ordered a magazine and a shirt on September 15th, and still have not yet recieved it.
    I tried to file a claim with paypal and open a case, but it said that I could not because Skim Mag won't allow me to file it.
    This is some real shit.

    Undaunted, I knew the game was mine to win. Just like in life, all of my successes depend on me. I'm the man who has the ball, I'm the man who can throw it faster than frack. So that is why I am better than everyone in the world. Kiss my ass and suck my dick, everyone.

    Dear Mister-I'm-Too-Good-To-Call-Or-Write-My-Fans,
    this'll be the last email I ever send your ass
    It's been six months and still no word - I don't deserve it?
    I know you got my last two emails;
    I wrote the addresses on 'em perfect
    So this is my message I'm sending you, I hope you hear it
    I'm in the car right now, I'm doing 90 on the freeway
    Hey butch, I drank a fifth of vodka, you dare me to drive?
    You know the song by Phil Collins, "In the Air of the Night"
    about that guy who coulda saved that other guy from drowning
    but didn't, then Phil saw it all, then at a show he found him?
    That's kinda how this is, you coulda rescued me from drowning
    Now it's too late - I'm on a 1000 downers now, I'm drowsy
    and all I wanted was a lousy letter or a call
    I hope you know I ripped ALL of your skim pictures off the wall
    I love you butch, we coulda been together, think about it
    You ruined it now, I hope you can't sleep and you dream about it
    And when you dream I hope you can't sleep and you SCREAM about it
    I hope your conscience EATS AT YOU and you can't BREATHE without me
    see what your doing to me?

    me..
