The site received a minor tweak today. I made new logo/banner for consistency on our Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages and then figured consistency meant using the same artwork here on the site. Which then clashed with the old dark grey colour scheme. So I had to do a little searching and replacing of the old colour code. This isn't the revamp. That's still coming. This is more of a quick coat of paint to brighten things up in the meantime.

The tortoise and the hare... Winterwind is slowly getting the attention it missed for five years. The content is being reorganised, there'll be another tweak to the look of the site coming later this spring, there'll be a Youtube channel launching so, again, stay tuned.

Winterwind is pleased to announce further details of an upcoming project - A Guy & His Gretsch is the story of a lonely drifter (kind of like the Littlest Hobo only walking on two legs instead of four) drifting from town to town righting wrongs with a magic guitar... that shoots lasers and stuff!
With music by Hot Karl & the Alabama Donkey Punchers featuring their soon to be smash hit "Your Laundry (The Ballad of Thursday Afternoon)".

The 2018 winter solstice would have been Winterwind's 15 year anniversary. The first 10 years had a few highs, a few more lows, a revolving cast of characters and ultimately proved to be unfulfilling.
Paying the annual hosting for five years for a stagnant site was unfulfilling too so...

Today is Winterwind's Ten Year Anniversary. Yay for Winterwind! We've had some highs and lows and some long pauses here and there but it's ten years today that we've been online.
To mark this event we have six pieces today for your enjoyment. Emily Thorburn examines the confused feminist message in Lily Allen's "Hard Over Here" track. Amy Van De Casteele takes a look at the dark nature of the work of Ed and Lorraine Warren. Jon Arnold gives us his reasons why he finds Best Of and Year End lists to be really rather useless. Both William LJ Galaini and Nathan Frederick Garden return with the latest entries in their respective columns, Gamer on a Budget and The Fitba and our Assistant Editor, Michael S. Collins treats us to a short story that has us visiting Séance Booth Four.
Since our re-launch in the summer we've been on something of a lovely roll, publishing more in the past six months than we have in the past two years and we look forward to bringing you more in the future.
So please, read, enjoy, like, share, tweet... and tell your friends!
Also, as always, we are looking for submissions and contributions. Articles, reviews, artwork, photography, anything that fits under our umbrella of arts, pop culture and social issues.
We had hoped to have the ezine re-coded and ready to go for this special event. Unfortunately... well, the chap that was supposed to do that didn't and disappeared on us... such is the way of things sometimes but we soldier on. Still... ten years... wow.
