(issues 2 through next-to-last)
New! New! New! Zzaj PODCAST!
INTERVIEW - I'm really happy to announce that we have a splendid interview with AMP (The American Music Project) in this issue... revolutionary sound, now amplified by revolutionary words from the kulprits themselves!
Due to the announcement below, you will see no rants (i.e., LIVE SHOW reviews for a few issues)... be SURE to check the RANT this time, as it has important information about our impending MOVE!
Evermore exciting MUSIC reviews (over 20 splendid new reviews)
In Issue # 100 (& later):
More fine interviews & music reviews with today's energy "shakers & movers"
NOTE: We have a MOVE coming up very shortly... unless things change, my wife and I will be moving back to the Land Of Morning Calm. For that reason, I've asked all our promoters to hold off on submissions until I "land" over there (sometime towards the end of March or early April) Please use firstname.lastname@example.org for all inquiries! Be SURE to check the ZzajRANT for more information about this!
We don't take poetry submissions by snail; please e-mail poetry submissions to email@example.com - but DO email us anything you have you would like published - we are sorely in need of more poetry, as some of our previous submissions got "lost" when my HD crashed last month.

Long-time reader and musician Dave Fuglewicz: I.N. was one of the first 'zines to respond to my work. It was a great 'zine way back then and has maintained the highest of standards every step of the way. 'Zines have come and gone, some with great fanfare, some with quiet aplomb, but few can match the Zzaj for the dedication and fortitude it takes to keep cranking it out. Diversity and ... originality are recognized and applauded, that, in my opinion has always been one of I.N.'s greatest "traits". Number 93 brings us all ever closer to the magical 100th issue. I highly recommend a visit and a read. Y'all get there now. :-)
Music promoter Ann Braithwaite's followon to Dave's comment: Couldn't agree with you more, Dave. And have you heard Dick's music? Great!!
