My last attempt to garner support was scuppered because the old-new site went down on the same day before I had the chance to get hold of everyone's emails. So if people like Bill Oddie and CK are still up for it, let me know and we'll get it all moving again.

Cheers all

New magazine? Sounds sexy... What sort of thing are you looking to include?

i think we need it to be weekly, and aimed at lads, with footy and tits and celebrity stories!

Well there's that lovely picture of Mr J. J. J. J. Heej somewhere, isn't there? That would make a perfect cover picture.

I can write, but I'm not cool, imaginative or even good at lying. However, I would love to have a part in this (teaboy?). PM me when you have the time...

I'm very intrieged by the sounds of this. More than happy to do some writing. I have a Primary School level 6 in my SATS. Along with all sorts of other less important English-related accolades such as KS3's, GCSE's and A-Levels.

Unless you hate me, or I'm too young, in which case I'll fuck off.

Turns out I'm busy tonight too, but I have the next couple of days off so promise I will email/PM those who have replied.

For those who don't know - Numb, or whatever it ends up being called, is a magazine that shuns the cult of celebrity in favour of those with genuine talent, whether that be in music, film, books, TV, video-games, photoshopping, whatever.

It was a set of icons and heroes who represent the ideology of the magazine and anyone in it has to sit comfortably in that list. It also produces its own material - from short stories to comedic stuff and takes the best of the internet and puts it into print - with permission obviously - so it can be enjoyed in the comfort  of the armchair.

It'll also have a serious features section which I haven't got time to go into but as you can see it covers a fairly broad canvas so if it is something you think you could get involved with, let me know.

As I said before the board crashed, this has been kicking about for a year, but after much business on my part working, trying to move, breaking limbs and starting up other projects, we're finally pushing ahead with this and are working quickly top get it 'out there'. That's it, back to work. Cheers all.

What are SATS and KS3's?  Seriously, never heard of them.

SATS are pointless tests you do in years 3, 6 and 9. If we're thinking the same way, KS3s are Key Skills qualifications, which cover communication, numeracy and IT. It is very dull.

That sounds great. Not shitting you about or arse-kissing, but that sounds like something I would actually buy.

Oh, and the SATS thing..they're tests I've had to do throughout my life that one after another rendered the previous absolutely redundant.

How regular is this magazine intended to come out? Is it meant to be a print magazine, or summat online?

Can I be in charge of marketing?  With images like this up my sleeve, I can't see how you could refuse.....
