i would really LOVE to get anyone and everyone to send in whatever they want. anything from poetry, writing, media, art, self portraits, prose, drawings, doodles, rants...everything! i really hope to get it to be a little more diverse than the regular zine, so that we see the sides that we dont even necessarily agree with, that dont apply to us, that we never thought about, that we need to understand...anything that can be photocopied is encouraged, even the tiniest haiku. please email or comment (savethepirate AT hotmail DOT com), or send to elle destroy! 5723 indigo houston, tx usa, and anyone who sends in a contribution, whether it gets used or not (although im pretty sure ill be using all of them) will get a free copy.
