My fellow Hooligans. The day has officially arrived. The creativity has been flowing rapid among our minds long enough. It is time we harness, and funnel our imaginations into the same tributary. True we may all have our own personal pursuits and original ambitions, but what better avenue for encouragement, feedback, and motivation than in a combination our talents. Let our free-spirited mines mutate into a one all-inclusive breathing beast. I'm talking about a spotted spectacle. For years we have mumbled about such a concept but its birth is inevitable. Our creative minds are having contractions, are water has long sense broke and we're 24 months along.
The sex is undetermined,
The due date: Feb 8th,
The location of birth: World Wide Web
The species: …Space Ant

Soon, we will be wiping the placenta from its antennas and severing
its umbilical cord. The SPACE ANT will be among us.

In order to fulfill a school requirement I am creating an online magazine/creative community. It is to be an advanced level FLASH entertainment website. I figured why not make a site my friends could enjoy. So my concept is this; the site (which is entitled "Space Ant" or "Space Ant Online Magazine" ) will feature articles, interviews, profiles, galleries (Illustration, Photo, Sculpture, Sewing,…) and music; All of which is produced by acquaintances/friends and fellow hoopla enthusiast (you). It will contain a profile of you; small, personal, and brief.

Your profile would include a short bio, (what you would like viewers
to know about you. (Inspirations, process, websites, pricing, offered
services etc)

Around 12 examples of your works. (12 if possible…as many as you're willing to share) Your works could include, photos, crafts, videoart, music/songs, articles, poems, essays, illustrations, design work, sculptures of shrunken heads etc.

And a link to a short interview Space Ant will be giving you either
by phone, e-mail, or ichat.

The site needs to be a specific size and contain a certain amount of
content, and instead of just doing my site on a band or movie
director, I'm daring to make it a personal project. With faith that
my friends won't object to being featured on my silly online magazine, and in hopes you'll be willing to contribute your creativity and works to its creation.

The due date of the project is Feb 8th, so the sooner you could e-mail
me your works, and bio the better. This site will only be viewed by
you and my teacher, but you can show others if you'd like. I'm only
inviting a handful of friends to contribute because Space Ant should
maintain a level of quality. Due to the lack of invitations your
involvement is key.

This proclamation is becoming wordy and long (you won't be reading my writings in the publication I assure you), but please get back to me, and let me know if your willing to contribute, better yet, send some stuff, and I'll get sweating over its creation. I have a limited time to get this done. Let me know if you have suggestions, questions, and suspicions.

Thanks aton for reading all this, and please send me some stuff
tonight.- Matt Mangus
