...Thus begins the descent into a vicious battle to the death, a mammoth
electronic war pinning good against evil, the literate versus the half-baked
forces of Ash, and characterized by savage personal attacks and more than a
little depraved hoodoo...
As a matter of interest, just because some of our contributors are fixated
with Collective Soul, neo-hippy bleeding heart liberalism and run-on
sentences, it doesn't mean that we're all a bunch of loser freaks grappling
with a social conscience and trying to define ourselves vicariously through
the hero-worship of mediocre so-called bands. In fact, I happen to disagree
with the majority of the swill we publish, but my alternative is to become a
twisted basement-dwelling crackpot who writes the entire paper alone, and I
know that you wouldn't want AIRDUCT to resemble PULP with such blatant
By the way, thanks for the free publicity around Glebe. Those posters have
done more to spark controversy about our own paper than that highly surreal
publicity stunt the Rabid Lemur pulled in a fit of delirium... It seems that

anti-corporate pinko hippie crap all day too, but I like to think I'm

By the by, the opinions of your contributors DO reflect directly upon you.
What's the point of running a publication if you can't impose Gestapo-esque
levels of censorship over content? Freedom of speech needs to be earned, and
don't get it by mentioning the words 'Collective Soul' and 'band' in the
same sentence. And that devotion to quality, my fine feathered friend, is
exactly why PULP has so few other contributors. Or at least that's what I

know that while I may be twisted and a crackpot, I certainly do not live in
basement. Granted my appartment is small, dank and underground, but it said
clearly in the lease that it was a SUB-basement, thank you very much, so
you and the communist horse you rode in on, hippie. Go listen to some some
pseudo-religious pop-rock and leave me alone.
