Hello, hello, hello, all you rock ‘n’ rollers all over the world! It’s the last Friday of January 2016. I’ve enjoyed my two weeks or so of down time (my fun money only last from the first to around the fifteenth of every month if I’m lucky). I got a lot done. I think I learned a little bit more about running an online girlie magazine. Now I’m ready for some fun. I’ll be back on my beat in Little Italy next week: at Armand’s for beer and deep thinking on the first of February and at Nico’s for karaoke on the sixth (Saturday night) of February if all goes according to plan. You never know what might happen; I might walk across someone’s lawn and step on a rake and knock myself out and lose my memory.
That’s a joke, people…I know. I should stick to flash fiction.
But hey, there is still work to be done these last three days of January. This post is just to let you know that I’m on the job, checking my online sources, interacting with the world through social media, absorbing the news from different media outlets and conversing with my muse in order to bring you, dear reader, the very best reading experience possible.
Check out the front page if you haven’t done so in awhile. Explore the site. There are now around 1,950 posts on this site (spank my bare bottom and call me a nudist!). And if you haven’t done so already, bookmark my little girlie magazine or take out a free email subscription today.
This is Guy Hogan reporting for the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette.
Hail to Pitt!
Today in Pittsburgh there will be more clouds than sunshine with the possibility of scattered snow showers and a high around 30.
PS The Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette is not the only publication that uses photos of nude women as part of its editorial content as I’m sure you are well aware of. All kinds of publications do, even publications that are not known for nude women. Take the Rolling Stone for example. This is what Wikipedia has to say about the Rolling Stone:
Rolling Stone is a biweekly magazine that focuses on popular culture. It was founded in San Francisco in 1967 by Jann Wenner, who is still the magazine’s publisher, and music critic Ralph J. Gleason. It was first known for its musical coverage and for political reporting by Hunter S. Thompson. In the 1990s, the magazine shifted focus to a younger readership interested in youth-oriented television shows, film actors, and popular music. In recent years, it has resumed its traditional mix of content.
