"My Friends Have Passed Out on The Landing"
Here you can find information on joining this SNZ list, as well as view the archives of the digest-form of The Landing.
To the left is a list of most of the recent digests. It begins with Issue #5, because that is when we became "Officially Official" and started to get more subscribers.
If you've missed an issue or want to see what we "used to be like" then check out the back issues, archived here until Sept. 25 1999 or the complete archives at smoe.org (linked on left), our gracious list server!
Below is the message recieved by each new member after they subscribe. You can find subscription information within.
Welcome to The Landing Mailing List! This is a Squirrel Nut Zippers mailing list, availible in digest form. That means that instead of getting a whole bunch of loose e-mail throughout the day from fellow SNZ fans, you can just get this list once a day (but if you still want to get emails more often, you can opt for the "loose mail" version. This list was inspired by the wonderful Listbot list that Matt Mitchell hosted through his website (http://www.squirrelnutzippers.com). It's not in competition with that list, but I hope that many of the friends I made through there will join me here. For the most part, I hope that all of our discussion on the list will somehow be Zipper related. Since the Zippers are influenced by so many different kinds of music, and since most of the fans have a wide musical taste, it shouldn't be hard to come up with some content in your messages about the Squirrel Nut Zippers. For now, off-topic posts will be accepted, but please keep them to a minimum. When the Zippers return from their hiatus (somewhere around June of 1999) I will begin to crack down on way off-topic posts. A person who continually posts about non-Zipper related things will be warned, and if such posting continues, will be removed from the list. An example of an on-topic post: Today after school my friends and I went swing dancing. it was so much fun! An example of an off-topic post: Today after school my friends and I went to the mall. it was so much fun!
