C'est Cheese Idiot Road

This month's profile spotlights The Arrogant Worms. They began writing for campus radio in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, in 1990. From these humble beginnings, The Worms (as they are affectionately known) have become one of Canada's best known comedy acts, touring the folk circuit throughout North America, and as far away as Australia.

The Arrogant Worms consist of Trevor Strong, Chris Patterson, and Mike McCormick, and their songs cover a wide range of subjects, from typical small town Ontario (Canada), to spoofs of "boy" groups. There's even a Celine Dion tribute (extremely tongue-in-cheek!). Their influences range from country ("The Lonely Lab of Broken Hearts") and Celtic ("Gaelic Song" and "Johnny Came Home Headless") to heavy metal ("Log in to You"). In short, there's almost nothing to which the Worms are unwilling to give their own special twist.

While listening to any one of their seven CDs is a treat, the Arrogant Worms are best experienced live. Why not check out their tour page to find out when they'll be appearing at a venue near you?

For a sampling of their music, visit this Web site; also visit their MP3.com site for downloadable music and information on ordering their CDs.

Know that the end / is something that you cannot escape here.
I wanted to ask francophone African speculative authors how they feel, how non-Black francophone African authors relate to the controversy, but also how they position themselves either as Afrofuturists or Africanfuturists, or as neither.
The new idea is to have the sixth sensors oversee the end of humanity.

In conclusion, I argue that SF fanzines in China mostly played a transitional role. That is, when no professional platforms were available to publish articles and stories, fanzines stepped in. Though most of those fanzines did not last very long, they played the important role of compiling and delivering information. The key reason why I identify those magazines as fanzines is because all the contributors joined out of their interest in SF and worked for free.
