Some issues of Elephant 2 seem to have gone out with the wrong pages attributed to the wrong people. or the right pages to the wrong people? anyways, some of the pages were wrong. If you are looking at a page that has a boob on it and empty captions on graph paper, that is Jess Rose. If you are looking at a page with a lot of crazy signs collaged together and the words "there's a lot to do in life", that is Peter Skvara (with art by Evan Crown ((teepee)) & Riley Crane((little furry alien dude))). Sorry, folks, we are but mere meat puppets, but we will try and be more like our glorious robot overlords in the future! If you spot any other errors, please let us know!
Update: to address any problems people might have just reading the shit, we have created a full credits page here: http://elephantzine.weebly.com/v2credits.html
"The Chicago Poetry Cult goes around acting like I'm a bad guy because I publish criticism at my blog. They act like they are innocent. The truth is, Michael once wrote something at his Wordslingers suggesting that I spend my time passed out on the floor in shit stained underwear with a bottle of whiskey. Scott wrote such crap on his blog suggesting that I got kicked out of Charlie's thing not because I wrote an editorial but because I was on drugs or that I'm merely crazy..."

The Notebook issue is a collection of pages from artists, poets, and drunks- fresh first drafts of stories, scribbles, letters, doodles, sketches and poetry. The goal of the artist is not to make a masterpiece but to be making art. The Notebook is a tribute to the work in progress as a masterpiece.
