An Important Note
After nearly three years in an issue format, Being There has decided to move toward a more flexible schedule that will see fresh content being posted on a rolling basis, as it becomes available. We will continue to offer the same content our readers have come to expect, but hope to do so in a more timely manner, unconstrained by a monthly calendar. New content will be clearly identified and highlighted, and e-mails will be sent out monthly to notify readers of important updates to the website. We appreciate your patience in this transitional time, and look forward to a year of exciting changes ahead.

About Being There Magazine
Founded in 2004, Being There is an online music, film and culture magazine that rides the fringe between mainstream popular culture and alternative or unheralded work. Past issues have focused on both iconic artists such as U2 and Paul McCartney and relative unknowns such as Toronto singer-songwriter David Celia and Austin, Texas' Bigamy Sisters. Being There strives to promote music and culture with depth, integrity and intelligence. Recent interviews include singer-songwriters Sufjan Stevens, Joe Pernice, Michael Penn, Robbie Fulks and Jolie Holland, comedians Patton Oswalt, Lewis Black and Greg Proops, and legendary figures such as Pete Townshend, Tommy Smothers, Colin Blunstone of The Zombies and Kinky Friedman.

Being There Magazine’s October Update Now Online
TORONTO, October 11, 2006 - With pumpkins popping up on porches and the leaves beginning to fall, new music has been arriving thick and fast at Being There HQ, great acts have been gearing up for tours around the country and summer blockbuster season has given way to Oscar hopefuls. We love this time of year. In fact, with all that’s been happening, our staff has almost more than it can handle at the moment. That’s why, in anticipation of the November issue, which is well underway, we’ve brought you an October update (www.beingtheremag.com) chock full of new, oven-fresh reviews and features.

New October content includes:

• A fine batch of live concert reviews, including the Dirty Dozen Brass Band Massive Attack, M. Ward, Silver Jews and Sufjan Stevens
• Brand spanking new album reviews, including the latest from Pernice Brothers, Susanna & the Magical Orchestra and TV on the Radio
• A big shot of cinema, including film reviews of The Black Dahlia and Stranger Than Fiction, as well as a heaping helping of movies from this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, including Paris Je T’aime, For Your Consideration, Lake of Fire, The Italian and Summercamp!
• A look at the season two DVD edition of a series we are loving at the moment, The Office (U.S. version)

Naturally, Zayne and Mike also return in October with the latest installment of “I Wanna See the Nashville Lights”, their twisted little slice of Southern Gothic looniness. Our rapidly growing editorial staff also provide readers with their personal cultural picks in our regular “9x5” column.

October will also see Being There wrap up its special Bicycles contest, with three lucky winners chosen to receive a CD copy of the group's highly anticipated debut album, The Good, the Bad and the Cuddly. Winners will be randomly selected from the Being There mailing list, so all those who sign up will be automatically entered.

Happy New Year from Being There Magazine!
Happy New Year from all of us at Being There Magazine!

We're doing things a little differently in 2005 - the monthly date in which new issues are posted is moving from the 15th to the 1st, that way you'll always remember to check out a new issue on the 1st of the month!

As a result, there will be no issue on January 15th. Instead, we will bring you a very special January/February issue on February 1st.

But obviously you're going to want something new to look at while you wait for a new issue, so we *will* be adding some updates to our site on the 15th. For example, we will be announcing the winner of our Eddie Izzard DVD giveaway, introducing a brand new comic strip from staff member Zayne Reeves (with drawings by Veronica Ebert), and announcing the nominations for our own answer to the Grammys, the Spammys.

So stay tuned, cause 2005 will surely be The Year of Being There

Thanks!
