Thanks to everyone who braved the downpour to come to the launch for Me#5 Rivington Arms, Oliver from Happy Endings, and Andre Razo and Leo Fitzpatrick:

Someone suggested we sign up Me Magazine at MySpace, so we finally got around to it. Now we're not sure what to do with it. www.myspace.com/memagazine

New press on Venus Zine's website. Thanks to Ling and Stephanie over there for making it happen!

The Autumn issue is here... unfortunately, in a sleep-deprived haze, someone forgot to change the season on the cover... we changed it on the website, but if you happen to pick up a copy and it says Me Magazine #5 Summer 2005, don't be confused... it should say Autumn... it'll never happen again... hopefully... Also, the United Bamboo ad was not shot by John Minh Nguyen, it was shot by Chris Moore. Deepest apologies to all concerned!
