An update on what's happening

x Universal Sea I admit, I rarely visit here at all any more

the reason - Facebook, for one. The others include being very busy.

one of the busy projects is GASHE - god and she - our upcoming street press magazine. I see it as a modern replica of UM and then some. We're going to combine forces. Gashe is going to be massive, and this time it'll be done properly.

gashe hits the streets in december, our launch party in january, and we'll see what happens

If you dont have a facebook id yet, I recommend you get one... as Gashe, and the new UM, will use Facebook as a login

thank you and good luck

x jeffwith1f honestly I'm not surprised.
and if this moves to Facebook, I will surely join, however, please do give me some warning so that I can get the babby blog and toddler blog content off. (i intend to wrap up the Toddler blog on our return from Africa in early Jan, his B-day will be spent in Africa on safari. the last post should actually contain some good pics if the site stays up long enough for me to compose and post it!)

we're hoping to compile it offline, and archive, still working out what to do with links and vids.

at any rate
this makes me sad, but all good things come to an end. As web comunities go, this is even more sparcely populated than the flying v group, which only has like 3 or 4 of us making quasi regular posts.

One thing that always amazed me about this site though is just how search engine friendly it is. I could always count on my content, assuming it is relevant to be showing up on Google within a couple of days. it's like magic. none of the other newsgroups that I post to do that at all. your metadata magic is one of a kind.

(how does that get populated BTW?)

let's raise a toast
long live UM!
UM is dead!

x Universal Sea think of it as UM stays alive... but we'd use Facebook to post updates on it

this content will stay up through the UM trilogy of movies so you probably have another 20 years

we shall see. lots on. gashe is an ever evolving beast. who knows what the future might bring.

x Marc Yeah... I think this place has a seed crystal to build things out.

I lost my coke&pepsi site and would like to have a myspacebookUM kind of subdomain that I could use to post music and shite

I'm back on my feet, somewhat, creatively and doing some shit... maybe this would be the place...
