Thanks for the Stories
We had some great stories come in over the past few weeks about Gene Eugene. Keep them coming if you’ve got them. We can add them to the website pretty quickly. Sometimes, I consider maybe making this whole thing a website. I wonder why we bother with a magazine version sometimes. Not that I hate it or anything, it just seems that everything is moving that direction, so why not just go all online?
Well, that won’t happen anytime soon, but we will still continue to archive each issue online about 3 months or so after they are released. So be sure to go and comment on the articles that you liked – or add stories that others might be interested in.
Don’t just complain about the world – do something to change it
ONE is “a grassroots campaign and advocacy organization backed by more than 2 million people who are committed to the fight against extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa. Co-founded by Bono and other campaigners, ONE is nonpartisan and works closely with African policy makers and activists. At ONE, we achieve change through advocacy. We hold world leaders to account for the commitments they’ve made to fight extreme poverty, and we campaign for better development policies, more effective aid and trade reform. We also support greater democracy, accountability and transparency to ensure policies to beat poverty are implemented effectively.” See www.one.org (The ONE Campaign did not buy this ad nor do they endorse this magazine – just givin’ ya food for thought)

Down the Line covers bands that explored the intersection between faith and art in the 1980s through the early 1990s – even though they were probably never accepted in to what is called “Contemporary Christian Music” because they were too edgy or alternative or liberal or for whatever reason. Some of these bands may still be making music today, and others may have moved on. We cover these bands (active or dormant) as well as any new projects by former members of these bands and any new bands that may have the same spirit as these bands.
