8 - LATER THAN EVER! (filth)
There has been a new drug found within the ansi
scene. garmaurnatetratolyephagrine. (or gutter for short)
it's been known to cause constant outbreaks of the words
"d0pe" and "diz is phizzat!@". it is 100% safe (we tested
it on a few #ansi kids, them seem to be ok.) anyways you
can pick some up from your dealer at: www.angelfire.com/pa/gutterbong

HAPPENING AT HIREZ.ORG? (dangermouse)
I suppose a lot of you are wondering what the hell
is going on with hirez.org not displaying the front page,
and also why the discussions are screwed. What has happened
is that the site has run out of space on the server, and
when the discussions software went to update the topics
list, it couldn't, and subsequently wrote a 0 byte file.
problem has now been rectified, and the site is back online.
If you don't believe me, have
a look :)

LUCKY #13 NEXT MONTH (inazone)
Fistful of Steel's 13th issue will be released in
February, and will mark four years of FOS obscenity. In
case you're confused by our "birthday" schedule,
FOS was founded in February of 1995 and released the first
pack in March, but the first issue of the FOS mag actually
came out in April or May of `97. Confused? ;)
there was plenty of enthusiasm about the reunion artpack
early on, the volume of submissions from FOS alumni and
guests has NOT been enough to warrant a dedicated release.
Instead, art will be included in the next issue. If you
are still working on artwork, please keep working on it
and submit it to me before the end of January. Thanks...
