Titles affect how you interpret a story

The Cyberpunk Apocalypse is one year old. We have kept a lot of our promises. We have created a space for writers and we have maintained a residency program--we have written our hearts out of our asses and so on. But I know that some of you are disappointed.

Because we promised to be crazier than your average writers' house. We promised to keep the idea that we live in a cyberpunk apocalypse close to the heart of our project. We promised to be cheesy and bold and write angry essays about the end while wearing tinfoil hats.

I feel personally responsible for this disappointment.

And this is my promise: I will be crazier this year. Cross my damned heart.

Now to play catch up with what's been going on:
We got a stamp from my friend Alfredo for the perminent collection here.
A big wind blew a hunk of our roof away and I patched it in time to stop the rain from getting gunner and my bedroom wet.
I've been busy with preparations for Elvin Slaughter Tour with Elwin.
I've been working on a speech for PARSEC.
Artnoose's Kickstarter is kicking ass.
I should really fix up our website but I am not up for it currently.
Our visiting writer Marisa is great. She's working on a zine about borders.
Gunner finished a draft of her first novel (novella?--it's in the border regions).
Elwin's book is coming out on the 15th.
Brenda... where is Brenda? Brenda's busy.

Here is a list of things you should check out.
