    Alrighty, I've been thinking of starting something similar to the mock-news group "The Onion" ( http://www.theonion.com if you've never heard of it). The articles and pictures and whatnot would be written in a very similar style, except they would be more appealing to anarchists then the onion (don't get me wrong I love the onion). If any one would like to tell me that this is stupid please do so now so I don't waste any more time on this, but if any one thinks it sounds intriguing and would like to help me get it started please give me a shout out to! Remember its supposed to be comedic (anarchists should definitely be able to laugh at themselves) for example, my first idea for an article came to me last night when I was sewing some patches on to my pants, it will be entitled "Local Anarchist Spends More Time Worrying About How Sewing Will Turn Out, Less Time Worrying About Revolution" :D

    I would love to contribute to that, i have so many satirical articles you could write about. Good idea man.

    It'd be funny if you had a section on "as seen on tv!" or with anarchists "as seen in an anarchists sleeping bag!" and have like spray-on dirt and bedazzler articles haha!

    I love The Onion, seems like a nice idea if not a bit demoralizing. But go ahead, it should give some nice laughs. :)

    Well I'm glad that thee have been so many enthusiastic responses :D anyvone with an idea should tell me soon because I'm definitely going to try to put this together soon (hopefully there will be a June issue) and I don't want it to be a one man project at all.

    Not to double bump my own topic but there were a few more things I thought I'd mention. I'm not quite sure what to call it. Some ideas pertaining to that would be dandy. I'm also trying to make some fictional collumns. My first idea for one would be "Stabby's Corner" Stabby would be an American train hopper, not one of the nice ones, one of the ones who gives good train hoppers a bad name (self entitled, elitist, junkie) just your typical squattheplanet.com doucher. To oppose his lifestylism we would have "Stans Plans" Stan is a bald 34 year old man with glasses who opposes all forms of lifestyle anarchism and spends 24 hours a day referrencing one period of Spanish history and ranting about the importance of syndicalism. The way I'm trying to make this project is so that it will make fun of modern day anarchists rather then anarchism. I want anarchists of all types to read it and go "Oh shit. Their talking about me!".

    totally do it, but don't call it the anarcho-onion. think of an original name so it doesn't sound like your piggybacking on them.

    I think for now you should set up a blog and if it catches on move to bigger and better things.

    Hey i like your idea, i've had similar thoughts in the past about doing some sort of anarchist perspective satire.

    for more research on satire you should check out Chris Morris's 'Brass Eye' and 'The Day Today'

    you can watch Brass Eye at this link http://www.channel4.com/programmes/bras ... e/series-1
