View Full Version : Media The mass hibsteria cup final special

Right guys, we can now OFFICIALLY confirm that there’s going to be a Mass Hibsteria Cup Final Special. A bumper edition at that too, with 64 pages of Jambo baiting, irreverent nonsense to make the bus journey to the game pass that wee bit quicker. That’s a stunning 60% more drivel than usual.

As well as the usual excellent fare from Grumpy, Hippie, Leon, Raving Reporter and the rest of the crew, there are a few guest writers to enjoy too. We might even tell you who they are for a large bribe. I hear the Nuns may be back too. There will also be a competition with a couple of signed copies of Carspotting by Sandy Macnair up for grabs.

Because it's a bumper edition, the cover price has increased to £2. However, it’s not all bad as every copy sold will result in a 25p donation to the Dnipro Fund. For an extra 75p (aye, postage has increased to scary levels too) we’ll have it delivered to your door in time for the journey through to the Weedge to witness our greatest victory.

Just send a payment via Paypal for £2.75 to [email protected] and I’ll sort out the rest. I’m almost certain your address is included in the Paypal transaction I’ll receive, but you can stick it in the notes section anyway. Our overseas comrades can get one sent for £4.00. Sorry it's a bit steep, but see above for postage costs. They're mental!

Bet you all want to know where we're selling? Well, some of the guys will be going round the pubs in Leith Walk and Easter Road on the night before the final. You’ll also be able to buy the fanzine on some of the supporters buses. There will be a supply at the clubs too for the buses that we can't get a supply to. We’ll also be outside Hampden selling, although that may prove a bit tricky if Strathclyde’s finest take exception. Last, and certainly not least, The Football Nation, Lothian Road, will have a supply should you be passing by. I hear they’re doing a mean line in jester hats during cup final week. If we can secure any other outlets, I'll add their names here.

Finally, I’d just like to thank everyone for their help in making this possible. Admins, I’m in awe of your support. Also, if it wasn’t for all the positive responses from Bouncers, .netters and the non-interweb community when I announced we might be going to press, I doubt we’d have bothered. But we have, and it’s going to be a unique memento of the day we shut the Yams up for ever.

Cheers and GGTTH

A quick update on progress, folks:

The printers are in safe receipt of MHHM after a late night on the editor's chair for yours truly after the Dunfermline game.

It's being delivered on Friday. The Football Nation in Lothian Road have very kindly arranged to take delivery on our behalf, which means that it'll be available for sale there from about lunchtime onwards - that obviously depends on when the couriers can deliver.

I'll get the PayPal orders received by Thursday sent out on Friday afternoon.

If you're going to, or are organising a shindig at a club, or are involved in a supporters' bus and would be willing to organise MHHM sales there, please get in touch with me. Mikey: PM me if you want to fix up something for the hibs.net buses.

Finally, we're doing a pub crawl/fanzine sale on the night before the final. I'll post more details after speaking to the rest of the Politburo as we're convening tonight or tomorrow.

Finally, finally, thanks to everyone for their support. I hope you put that picture of me in the EEN to good use, such as putting it on the mantelpiece to keep yer bairns away from the fire!

Finally, finally, finally, I'm waiting on a copy of the front cover that I'll upload as soon as the techies sort it for me.

Quick update to let folk know that The Iona Bar is stocking Mass Hibsteria. Grab a beer when you're getting one. In fact, kill two birds with one stone and get a beer and read it whilst you're drinking it:greengrin

Many thanks to Jimmy at The Iona for agreeing to this.

And just as wee162 opens a few more Hibsterical doors, I'm going to have to close the postage one. Well, certainly reach for the keys. To ensure* delivery for Saturday, last date for PayPal orders via post is tomorrow night. After that I won't be able to get them mailed on Thursday - they'll all go first class from now on.

Just a reminder; email address for PayPal orders is [email protected] Cost PER FANZINE is £2.75 - we're actually making a alight loss on cover price on that, so any rounding up will be made most welcome.

The response has been fantastic so far - we're so grateful for everyone's support. So much so, I'm thinking about making it a regular publication again. Nae guarantees, but watch this space.

* subject to Royal Mail actually doing their job properly.
