Happy Birthday to us! Thirteen glorious years of sin and sex right here in these pages. The number 13 is often associated with bad luck. Superstitious architects have deleted the thirteen from blueprints of skyscrapers that skip straight from 12 to 14. It even has its own phobia, for crissakes—Triskaidekaphobia is the fear of 13. But what exactly is the problem with 13, anyway? Well, it appears that the Scandinavians believed that the number 13 was unlucky due to the mythological 12 demigods being joined by a 13th, an evil one named Loki (AKA the god of mischief) who brought misfortune upon humans. It was also said that Christ was crucified on Friday and the number of guests at the party of the Last Supper was 13, with the 13th guest being Judas, the traitor. Think this has anything to do with us? Are we that god of mischief’s descendant that is finally coming into its own? To hell with it; we never assumed this magazine would be saving any souls, anyway. We’re probably going to hell, but we can rest assured of two things—that we will have a high-ranking position in upper management waiting for us, and that we’re gonna take as many of you with us as we possibly can. That being said, let’s see how much Portland has in store for us this month so we can all enjoy our cursed souls as much as
possible on the way to damnation.

WE JUST COULDN’T RESIST…
By now, we’re all aware that the ghost of the son of the revenge of SFX has returned, and its latest incarnation is now known as SX Magazine. So we were curious one day what kind of web presence they had, so we did a little search on our new/old archrivals on Google to see what they were up to. Our only results gave us a mag catering to nothing but the best of all Aussie gay beef! Look on the bright side, Chris—if things go to hell for you again out here, the road is already plowed for you down under!
I’m out, Portland, enjoy your summer, and here’s to the next 13 years!
