hear yey!

got this fr my alamat egrps…  i dont know but i want to submit but i dont have a soundtrack at the moment…hmmmmm

after much discussion, the fifth issue of the UP Writers Club’s
official indie publication LitAppLite, will now be called THIS IS THE
SOUNDTRACK OF YOUR LIFE, its content being, as you might have guessed,
influenced by / or about music, and its editor being yours truly, Adam

LitAppLite #5: THIS IS THE SOUNDTRACK OF YOUR LIFE is now open for
submissions, from today (August 28, 2004) until the third week of
September of this year (September 24, 2004), which means you have
roughly one month to come up with something.

it being about music, the works should preferably be about music.
going through the topic, what i had in mind was a collection of
500-word essays on music, more specifically certain songs and how they
have changed society, or maybe touched you somewhere deep, or maybe
where you were when that song was number one, that sort of thing.

after talking about it with some people, it has been revealed to me
that THIS IS THE SOUNDTRACK OF YOUR LIFE can be something more than
just a collection of 500-word essays. music being as varied as
internet porn, i tried to come up with a wider range of selections a
budding writer like you might be interested in, um, selecting, for
your doubtlessly scintillating piece, once you get around to writing
it, of course.

so, any of these, please, for the fifth issue of LitAppLite:

1. 500-word rosy prose/essays
2. poetry/songs, not too excessive, just right
3. xerox art, postcard art, mail art, black & white art
4. black & white photos, to be halftoned
5. comic strips, of course, me being a biased editor
6. lists of things of the musical sort
7. short interviews of pleasing personalities of the musical sort

as long as they are well within the parameters of the publication (ie,
being about music)

any of those things, on these topics:

1. songs that move you, amuse you, irritate you, love you back like a
warm kitten rubbing itself against your thigh
2. gadgets, like walkmen, or discmen, or iPods, if you have enough
money for them
3. media, like CDs, cassettes, vinyl records, those wide 8-track loopers
4. instruments, like stratocasters, les pauls, zlidjan cymbals,
reichenbacher bass, fretless guitars, parker flies, those fucking
expensive parker flies
5. bands that move you, amuse you, touched you in a very different
way, like a DOM from DFPP
6. certain personalities, like old juan de la cruz band groupies, or
vernon went, or some punks by your village’s gate, waiting for the
moon to rise
7. concert reviews
8. appreciations of certain music genres, from pop to punk

in a nutshell: April Boy to Boy George, Billy Joel to Billy Idol,
Blind Melon to Ray Charles, etcetera etcetera etcetera.

save the pieces as RTF, write them down in Filipino or in English, or
both. as long as they’re legible, and make some sort of sense, i’ll
read them.

supposedly, this will only be open for people inside the UP Writers
Club, but i feel that that’d be too limiting of a source, so i’ve
decided to open it up for everyone, which doesn’t necessarily mean
that everyone’s pieces will be published in the publication, oh no. if
it’s crap, it’ll probably end up in the online version. but if it’s
good, well, you’ll have it on photocopied paper.

send all queries and submissions to me, Adam David, at deadline is, again, at September 24, 2004.
the publication’s title will be THIS IS THE SOUNDTRACK OF YOUR LIFE.

for the introduction, i shall attempt to write something with chords
and tabs incorporated into it. wish me luck.

thank you, and please pass this message to people you think would be
interested. post it in your blog, print it out and pin it on to your
bulletin board, in the faculty, in the lounge, in the girls’ bathroom.
