New forum

Static Movement has been given forum space with Steel Moon and Ragged Edge Publishing - the Ezine, it can be found here.
I like the idea of the forums being together, as it's easier to network this way, not to mention keep up with friends. I hope you all will join us there.

Static is going to print, and anyone within any issue may contact me about being in the print issue, please email me at: printstaticmovement (at) hotmail.com

I am getting in touch with some of the ppl in the issues, but I have lost some emails, please email me if you want in.

Steel Moon

The dedication on Static Movement, the part about Pete and Deb...they're back with a new zine entitled: Steel Moon.

I am very excited about this, as they are not only good friends, but they put out quite a webzine, and I'm certain that Steel Moon is going to be a great success. For those of you who frequented their old zine, you know what I'm talking about, for those who haven't, don't just take my word for it, keep an eye on these two and it'll prove to be true.

They've always had hearts for the writer, and they haven't changed. Please show them your support by submitting material for them to consider for their publication. Click on the link to read all about it!

As always, Static Movement appreciates your support, without your submissions, we wouldn't be here and we are very grateful!

good things

Well, something good came out of the hacker email...a producer/writer who had a story in the first issue has written a story that is shooting a movie about it this month. He got one of the emails, which reminded him of Static Movement and he sent me the story to publish next month. I think this is very cool, and the story is a great one, the movie no doubt will be wonderful. Good comes sometimes out of bad, but I wasn't expecting it so soon.

Still have the job...they made an offer I couldn't refuse.

Sales are up at the store, which might mean that some of the Jasper Sucks people, unknown to me have come in for a biscuit...things will settle down soon, for awhile, as usual. lol.

We've already gotten a submission (that's two counting the producer) so that's looking up too, usually we start getting subs later in the month...

brouhaha -

What is all this commotion? It's coming from all sides, everywhere except in my house.

A hacker sends obscene emails to everyone who has been with Static Movement from the beginning.

A moron in this town I live in "reviews" Static Movement saying we are a porn site just on the seeing of the cover...duh...what an idiot time this one has been.

At work I am handing in my notice, I've been doing a great job...in my position and everyone else's and I've had enough, I'm just plain tired. I have confidence that I'll find another job quickly.

Bad things come when I fast. I haven't eaten in 9 days, and the stuff is hitting the fan. I don't know why this happens.

Static Movement is doing well, and has been doing well with almost 20,000 hits in 6 months, I haven't had any hacker problems in all my time online, and even this was done through a board that hasn't been in use for a long time.

Why in the world someone who claims to have wanted to be a reviewer, one who was whining on his site that no one has taken him up on it would click and then get the entire site wrong I don't know.

My cooking has trippled the sales in my store, but they want to play juvenile games and so now I have to leave...it's all stupid, crazy and uncalled for.

Life happens. Sometimes it's good stuff, sometimes it's bad stuff...but happen it does.

Important message about hackers

At the end of this message is an email that a writer friend showed me that someone send him in my name. I did not send any email like the one below, anyone who knows me knows this. We are NO LONGER using the staticmovementonline email address. Someone who knows more about this than I do can read the email and probably figure out who did this...the ip address is NOT MINE!!! Right this minute I got another message from Paul...he also got one. I'm sure if everyone thinks about this, you will know it's not from me. I'll be contacting the police about this to see what I can do. I believe that I know who it is. If I can't find help with this I'll put a picture and criminal record on Static Movement and the names this person has gone by so that EVERYONE will know what they've done and why this is happening. Since it's possible that this person has also used my gmail address, I will no longer use that one either...just so you know, you can send to me at the gmail one and I'll read it, but I will use another address to email you back..but the static one is deleted so don't use it at all.

Please send all submissions to smeerp. I'll update as needed, if you want to message me use the message board, lets do this in public...those of you who have an alternate email for me feel free to use it, I will never again use the staticmovementonline email address so if one is sent from me to you from there...IT IS NOT FROM ME...

Thanks to the two friends who emailed me so that I would know about this...anyone who got this email and didn't let me know or ask me why...shame on ya.

Issue Six

Half a year! LOL, well, I'm happy about it.

This issue is well rounded with articles, stories, poems, and an addition to Monika M. Segally's wonderful/addictive Novel "Quietly Crazy" and of course we will be adding to the comic Along the Chesapeake - by Adrienne Ray.

I see that there is a discussion brewing over the article
Top Ten Bikinis in Science Fiction and Fantasy Films - by Brianna Kelly over at Anotherealm

I'm getting emails from the authors about the illustrations, aren't they wonderful? The illustrators have done an amazing job, and Lee Kuruganti did a fantastic one for the Bikini article. When this article came along I asked Lee to illustrate it, I just knew she'd come up with something wild and crazy...and she did!

All in all a fine issue and I hope everyone reads it all.

Chris
