WHAT IS OFF PISTE?

[It's produced using Amigas.  That's what the press release is doing
here...  -Jason]

Off Piste is an alternative urban youth culture mag (on paper, in English),
focusing on topics such as music, entertainment, computing/communication,
youth travel, subcultures, and philosophy.  It is written and designed by
skilled young talents who report directly from the core of what's happening
around the globe.

THE FIRST ISSUE FEATURES THIS:

-THE TRUE SPIRIT OF SATANISM
Off Piste Editor Frode Erikson takes an in-depth look at the ideology
behind this rapidly expanding and church-burning subcult.  He talks with a
member of the Church of Satan in the U.S, and interviews a Christian
theologist to get his viewpoints.

-GRAFFITI ARTISTS - JUST VANDALS WITH HANDLES?
Can sprayed walls be looked upon as artistic images, or is it just
vandalism, like the general public like to believe?  Our UK correspondent
Simon Carless investigates the issue on a trip to Washington D.C.

-URBAN LIFE IN DURBAN AND CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA
Hasty impressions by Norwegian freelancer Tor Ketil Solberg from a
continent which is mostly known for starving young children and civil wars.

-STAND-UP POETRY
Stand-up Comedy become immensely popular in the 80's, bringing us stars
like Eddie Murphy and Billy Crystal.  Stand-up Poetry is the new hip thing
of the 90's.  In N.Y., there are already 10 cafe's devoted to this new way
of expressing lyrical art.  Off Piste's correspondent in Copenhagen, Martin
Serup, reports on how this new scheme has been brought into action in
Europe.

-The paragraphs BREAKTHRU: Music/Computing/Zines and .NETSTORM and IF
YOU'RE HEADED TO..  Things to do for urban youth on vacation.

As well as: Underground cartoon by the promising artist Borge B. 
Bredenbekk, essay(s) by Frode Erikson, Op-Ed columns and more articles!
