| This is an editorial
of sorts. Each month the topic will change. Since we're new, I'm going to
take some time to explain our policy on submission requests. We accept all
forms of media. We will review or feature films/videos, bands all genres,
writers, artwork ( photos, drawings, cartoons etc.)
To make things easier to process we have asked that submissions be in the
following forms. If you are submitting a band for review and or to be placed
in the web radio station, please do so in this manner. If you want your band
to appear on the web radio station please send us a copy of your CD. It
doesn't have to be super fancy, but we have to change the birate in order to
upload it into the station. It's easier to do with a CD. If you just want an
album reviewed, and don't wish to be a part of the station you can send us a
link to your MP3. Please in either case send us a press kit and or bio about your band.
If you are submitting artwork, photos or
anything that might be in picture form. Please send your stuff in the form
of either a PC compatible Jpeg or gif , no more than 72 dpi. If this is too complicated
for you, just send the picture or whatever and we'll do the rest. Like with
all categories, you have the option of e-mailing or snail mailing the items
to us. Please send complete information regarding your work.
If you wish to send a film/video/DVD. Please
make sure these mediums are compatible with United States coding system
NTSC. Otherwise, we will not be able to review your items.
If you are submitting a written piece, and it's
over 10 pages. Please send us a copy via snail mail. If your poem, story,
sample story etc. is under 10 pages please feel free to e-mail us with your
If you want us to take pictures of your live
performance and you are in the Southern California area. Let us know
when you will play, and if possible give us a couple alternate dates. We
will confirm a date with you, and it would be helpful if you could put us on
your press list or guest list, whichever if applicable.
The same rules that apply to Web Radio Airplay
also affect Audio Artist Spotlight and Station Ids. Anything audio
that's uploaded into the web radio station must be in CD form. For specific
information about your situation please contact the editor.
If you would like to schedule an online chat
session in our chat room, please contact the editor for specific

The policy that we abide by at Fighterguppy
Fanzine (TM) is that we are not here to be critical of other people's work. It
takes a lot of courage to express one's self creatively. We come from an
artistic background and do really love the arts, as opposed to wanting to
kill them. We understand that not every picture or song will appeal to
That's okay. That is what's beautiful about art.
It has different meanings to different people. I might see something as
brilliant, and you might see it as stupid. We're both right. We've taken the
stance that every project, we receive that has some sort of artistic
integrity and should be heard or seen.
We will merely give you a description, so that
you can decide if that's something you like. Whenever possible, we all
should jump out of our comfort zone and try something new. The idea that
someone should be reviewed by a critic is completely outdated. We're smart
enough as people to know what we like and don't like. We don't need someone
to tell us what we should or should not like. The moral of the story is: If
you need your art spoon fed to you, keep stepping, because here we feed

We all want something for free, and don't you
hate it when people tell you something is free and there's a hidden charge?
We try and be as honest as possible with people. That's why we're calling
this the almost free stuff section.
We get from time to time shipments of CDs,
bumper stickers, key chains, sometimes T-shirts etc. These items are all
promotional items that bands/ businesses use to further awareness of their product or
What we are offering you, as long as supplies
last, is a grab bag of stuff. We will hand out this stuff as long as people
give it to us. We are not a multi-million dollar corporation, so what we ask
from you is to pay for the postage. If you live in the United States that
postage is $5. If you live outside of the USA that postage is $10.
We can not guarantee that every grab bag will be
identical. If your buddy gets something that you don't it just means we ran
out of that item. That also works for you, you can order as many grab bags
as you'd like and always end up with something new.
Here's how to get cool promotional items that
will impress your friends. Go to our contact page and send us a money order
in US funds to the address listed. Make sure you enclose a card with your
name, address, style of music liked, shirt size etc. This information will
help us make a grab bag for you that will fit your personal tastes. We will provide you with e-mail confirmation when
your package has been mailed, if you include that in your envelope. It's
Currently, we have stuff from Audiovent, The
Scorpion King, Sarah Fimm, Sandy Adina, Bob G's Cool Jazz, Skin Lab and many
others. Look for more information on Sarah Fimm, and Sandy Adina in our

you'd love to have random people end up with your product, send us however

editor. The link for this as well as all other contact information is on the
