News, news, and more news!

January 3rd, 2010 (07:06 pm)

Happy 2010, everyone! Hopefully the brand new year is treating you all well thus far.

By now, most of you have probably noticed that issue 13 is a little..well..tardy. So far it's been one of those "If it's not one thing, it's another" type of deals. We won't bore you with the gory details, but we just wanted to reassure everyone that it's coming. We pulled it back from the printer and we're re-working it. We're also reworking the departments that will be in the magazine each time around.

From now on, all of our live reports will appear on our shiny new blog (though photo specials will remain in print), where we will also post news, press releases, contests, CD reviews, and fan art!

For those of you that have been with us from the beginning, you might remember that we originally had a fan art section in the magazine. The chief problem with it, and the reason for its removal from the magazine, was that most people don't sit down and create fan art with an eye towards having it printed, so it typically doesn't turn out the correct resolution for print. By placing the fan art section on our new blog, the resolution problem will disappear, and we'll once again be able to feature people's work! We're pretty excited about it.

We're revamping a few other things as well, so please be patient with us while we secure further funding, schedule events, work out the kinks in our new sections, and go in to our third year in print with an even better magazine than ever before!

We haven't forgotten about the birthday contest we promised, either. Though it's a little late in coming, we'll be having the mother of all give-aways veeeery soon.

For our subscribers - never fear. The gap in issues will not effect your subscription in any way. You'll still receive the same number of issues, and we'll probably throw in a little bonus of some kind as well.

So that's it for our news. Keep an eye on that blog we mentioned, there will be a lot of pretty kick ass stuff popping up there very soon!

Announcements!

November 4th, 2009 (03:35 pm)

It's that time again! Our birthday! Five For Magazine is officially 2 years old.
We're working on issue #13 now, and we want to make it extra supercalifragilistic, so we're going to take a couple of weeks extra to get it just right. Watch for it the end of this month, with special contests both online and in the magazine.

Second, for those headed out to the Dir En Grey shows in NYC, check out this info from our friends at The Diva Review:


(please note that the event starts at *7*, not 1-4 pm as Kinokuniya's site states)

Also, just a few more days to enter the Kra giveaway, get your entry in!

Where are all the Kra fans?

October 20th, 2009 (04:07 pm)

We come to you today with heavy hearts. We recently released our 12th issue, in which we were holding a contest to give away Kra's hand drawn, SIGNED "dream tour goods". The contest ended today. Why are we sad?? NO ONE entered it! Everyone opted to enter the Miyavi contest, instead ;_;

So, if you have purchased issue #12, we are extending the contest! We will now do the drawing on November 10th. We have 4 boards to give away, so 4 winners! All you have to do is read the interview in issue 12 and answer the question. It's easy!



If you haven't grabbed your copy of the magazine yet, get it here: www.five-for.com. And yes, we ship world wide!

Enter soon! Don't make the Kra guys unhappy bunnies ;_;

Please feel free to pass this announcement on to other Kra fans, we really want to give these away!
