WE FORMED OUR OWN SUPERTEAM AND CALLED IT CAVS ZINE




An amalgamation of writing and artistic talent straight out of the CLE.  Writers, artists and the enduring heartland Cleveland Cavaliers rock song from legend Michael Stanley on WINE AND GOLD flexi vinyl.  And when you spin it on a turntable and you close your eyes, you are guaranteed to picture that sweet Larry Nance mid-range jumper.  Not saying that if you spin it backwards you can hear me making a passionate plea for the retirement of Lenny Wilkens jersey, but, you know, it's something to consider, just in case.

It's the damn greatest thing ever, and you can get it in your hands.  It will lift your heart.  It will extinguish your anxiety.  And it's totally free if you're a Cavs fan.  Free as in, you just got to find it, and it's yours, your tangible reward for dilligent loyalty to our basketball team.  And if you aren't a Cavs fan, its just another reason to become one.  As in, the only price is your loyalty and passion.

What is Cavs Zine 2?  It's like Cavs Zine 1 on steroids, HgH or something even more powerful.  You remember this Brendan Bowers interview about Cavs Zine 1 from last season? http://www.stepienrules.com/2010-articles/october/cavszineqaa.html - I know you do.  Use that as a baseline for your imagination to begin wondering how far we could take this thing.  Free flexi vinyl with the legendary Michael Stanley Cavs song?  Check.  Vegan recipe section?  Check.   More original Cleveland Cavaliers comics?  Check.  Cover art based on the best alliance in hip-hop?  Check.  Indeed, we came to rock it to the tip-top.

It's a moral imperative to have Cavs Zine 2 in your hands.   There's no digital versions of this content.  
It's a peice of art and you need to have it with you though the Kyrie Irving Era.

I know your jaw just dropped.  You can go back and read that list again.  Then check out these details:

There's only going to be 300 copies, and I'm keeping one, so really there's only 299.  Also, I promised the Michael Stanley Band copies, so keep that in mind too since they have priority.  



The official release date (tentatively scheduled for the All Star Break) will come as soon as I know exactly when the flexi discs will come back from the record pressing plant.  (What's a flexi? It's how we do... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flexi_disc). There will be locations where you can pick up copies when it comes out, at least one of which will be before a Cavs game at the Q from Patrick Kocon, who has down with Cavs Zine since way back.  Follow him on Twitter @CTown_WUJU so you can make sure you know where he'll be.  Still working out the other spots but you can rest assured, those details will all be coming very soon.


DO NOT MISS THIS.   ONLY 300 COPIES WILL BE MADE.  IF YOU GET A BOOTLEG COPY IT WILL PROBABLY NOT INCLUDE THE FLEXI, UNLESS SOMEONE GETS REALLY AMBITIOUS.  STAY ALERT FOR MORE DETAILS.  AND, GO CAVS.
