September 26, 2008 - MOLINE, IL - Zoiks! Online, a magazine of humor, entertainment and pop culture, published by Jason Tanamor, author of "Hello Lesbian!" and "Anonymous," will relaunch on October 1, 2008. The magazine will include various columnists, authors and commentators from all over the country. The web address for the magazine is http://zoiksmag.blogspot.com.
Influenced by People, Interview and a bit of Mad Magazine, Zoiks! does not disappoint readers of pop culture and well-crafted comedy. "There's a strong mix of humor and entertainment," commented Tanamor, creator of Zoiks! Online. "Included are regular columns, movie and music reviews, profile stories and interviews with people in entertainment. 'Best Of' print editions of the magazine will also be available in the future." Issues have featured Frank Caliendo from Frank TV; Harry Shearer, voice from the Simpsons; Larry the Cable Guy from the Blue Collar Comedy Tour; and Mitch Fatel, regular correspondent to the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Future issues will include features on Tommy Chong, Godsmack, Blind Melon, Pauly Shore, Dave Coulier, and Norm MacDonald.
Jason Tanamor has contributed to numerous publications and has been praised and supported by industry professionals. "Tanamor's humor has the appeal of Saturday Night Live's "Deep Thoughts." It's not just offbeat - it's an entirely different time signature. Giving rise to plenty of double-takes and raised eyebrows, the writing is simple and uproariously funny. The result will leave readers in stitches," said Jenna Glatzer, author and Editor-in-Chief of Absolute Write.
Zoiks! Online originally launched on Sept. 1, 2004, and issues run on the first of each month. For information on advertising or submitting to Zoiks!, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
