12:21 pm - Quote from a contributor of GEEK!
Yeah, most of what most people write, sucks. Including me, of course. The most important writing tool is the garbage can.

12:20 pm - It's coming along...
Hello to all,

I hope on starting layout soon for GEEK. I think I finally figured out the style and format.

Thanks to all who submitted. I did not get as much material as I planned last month, so I am currently still accepting submissions. If you have something, anything, send it to me and I will see if I can use it. There is a 90% chance I can.

These are the current submissions so far:
*"Flying While Arab: racial Profiling in the New Era of Terrorism."
*A look at Extreme Pro Wrestling. "Watch out kiddies or you might get smashed."
*"Experience It" A philosophical piece about our control of objects.
*A piece about Ed McCormick one of the most extraordinary men to ever live.
*A philosophical piece about the trends in academia
*Poetry
*A few movie reviews.
*Some music reviews.
*blah blah blah

The one thing I need bad is photographs. Black and white preferably. I could also use original artwork.

Thanks,
Mike Thacker.

9:03 pm - E-mail number 3.
Hello all,

I am sending this e-mail out to remind you all that the deadline for submissions to GEEK is Oct 10th 2001. If you are going to have trouble making a submission by that time please e-mail me so we can work something out.

I also want to inform all of you who tried to contact me during the last five days that my AOL account was disconnected due to a screw up in accounting. As a result I got a free month so some good came out of it.

Oh yes before I forget. Please check out the online journal that I created for GEEK.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me by e-mail. You can also reply at the online journal.

Thanks,
Mike
