Killing Time Online: The Rumpus.net

Hey, folks, check out The Rumpus.net when you get a chance--it is, according to its blurb, "an online magazine focused on culture, as opposed to 'pop culture.' Pop culture can be hard to define and the term means different things to different people. Basically, we're not opposed to things that are popular, but we have no interest in 'art' created by marketing executives. And we have no interest in derivative art, like images of famous people made from shoelaces or Star Wars characters in funny wigs."

The articles are interesting enough to make me want to return soon to see what else might be posted, but even more interesting is the fact that they are willing to publish essays and articles by unknown writers. Most online magazines won't even accept submissions, while The Rumpus.net actually has several calls for them. Here is more information on the magazine if you're interested.
