Hey, it's summer! It's quiet, lazy, hot, humid...

Big RED & Shiny is made from the contributions of a community that cares about art, and we are proud of every article we publish. But we also know about the lure of summer, the temptations of the beach and escapes to cooler, lazy locales. I type this letter sunburned from a day on Georges Island, eating fried clams and thinking about nothing in particular.

This letter has two purposes. The first is to acknowledge that issue #134 of Big RED & Shiny is one of the smaller issues we've published. I like to think that this is because all of our contributors are enjoying the summer sun. The second purpose is to once again open our pages to anyone who wishes to write about art. This is a community effort, and as the new art season approaches at the end of the summer, we look forward to the great articles that flood our inbox.

As we do every summer, we are planning a Summer Movie Extravaganza issue chock full of movie reviews. Look for it next month in issue #135!

Until then, don't forget the sunscreen.
