The Editor's Bit

We’re a bit late with this 18th Anniversary edition of the Amsterdam Stun. We could have brought it out around the 30th September with photos from our trip to England in Tales from the Gutter (p. 4), Noam’s birthday party (p. 8) and the Charity Chicken Fund-Raiser (p. 20), but that clashed with Josie’s birthday (p. 24) and we didn’t want to miss that.

I considered doing it the following week, and then changed my mind. I thought: We’ll bring it out the same weekend as the very first Amsterdam Stun saw the light of day, 18 years ago, on Saturday the 16th October 1993! Almost made it, but I gave up at 11 o’clock on Friday morning; not enough time to finish it and get it printed the same day.

So, three days later, it’s Monday morning and the October Stun is almost finished; just the rest of this column to go. Bad time to get writer’s block!

The latest stand in our Premier Predictions League is on page 15. I was thinking about leaving it out and referring our contestants to the Stun web site, where it’s updated weekly, but I found a place for it after I removed last weekend’s events from the Gig-List (p. 13).

Music, Jokes, Being Frank on Football, Crossword, loads of photos; all the usual stuff is here. I’m sure there’s something else I was going to write about, but I can’t think what it is at the moment. Oh well, enjoy your Stun.
