Hello my loverly LJ community, it’s been quite a while! I’ve been insanely busy these days working my ass off on my new project, which essentially takes ALL of my time, because except for the transcribing of the interviews, I’m the guy behind the curtain who is doing everything – and gods, I love it.
The new issue is coming out VERY soon, and I’ve already started contacting people for the issue after this – fighting like hell to make this dream happen, and it is – it really is! After only three months in existence it won the "Best of The Bay award from the nations oldest weekly, the SF Guardian, and continues to get better and better – and now it needs to start making some money!
There are special advertising deals for this issue, and if you don’t have anything to advertise, Big Top could still really use any help you can offer in donations. The whole thing was created while essentially homeless, and I’m a couple days away from being even more homeless, doing the couch surfing thing until I have the scratch to purchase a decent, running RV – as I need to get the non-running psuedo-RV that I’ve been living in out of my friends driveway and get rid of it…
So, that being said, please help if you can – and on with the fanfare!
Big Top Magazine is coming to YOU!
This issue is going to be phenomenal, including interviews with:
Amanda Palmer (Dresden Dolls), an intimate conversation that differs from those ‘other’ magazines,

Dreamtime Circus, who just returned from India with beautiful stories to tell about their experiences there,
Mythmaker (“Mythic Fire Ritual Sacred Stilt Circus”) from Canada, bringing the storytelling of the ancients into their performances,
Boenobo of Gooferman, the Kings of Klown-Fi – a high-larious conversation,
