It's Official! Lunchmeat's got a website!

We bid welcome to one and all you Videovores out there to the Official Lunchmeat VHS Fanzine website! As you can see, we've got quite a bit cookin' with our little slice of the internet: you'll be able to get to know the fine people who help stitch Lunchmeat together by visiting the Kitchen Staff section, browse our cover gallery by clicking on the Meat Locker (which lists the content for all of the issues, and even gives you a chance to take a look at some OOP material!), and we've even gathered some Spare Parts and thrown together a little blog for you guys to nibble on while we're preparing the main course o'Meat! Now I'm gonna throw this out there just for clarity's sake: Lunchmeat is still first and foremost, without a doubt, no buts about it a PRINT ZINE. We just thought getting a website would be the best thing to do to keep in touch with our readership and keep you tapeheads informed about the progress of the newest issue (#6 is in the designing stages right now - get pumped!), reprints and all the other fun and weird stuff that happens over here in Lunchmeat Land. You can contact us through here anytime and tell us about your favorite flick, ask us a burning question, or just type out some heavy breathing in an email (this is not recommended, but will not be turned away). So now, just consider www.LunchmeatVHS.com to be the hub for all updates, news and communications. It's the place to be, dig? Oh, and be sure to check out the Meat Market which will now be the best place to grab all things Lunchmeat. There are a couple new and groovy things in there along the available issues if you haven't picked them up yet! And again, please be sure to check back every now and then to get the latest news on all things LM and give us a shout anytime!

Enjoy the new website, Videovores! And keep feeding that VCR!
