[The original 2007 description]
Each article appearing on this web site has been hand-crafted by Oklahoma-bred writers with a knack for words and wit. Although this publication is brought to you directly from Stillwater, Oklahoma, not all of the written material on this site caters to that local scene.
Sophie Zine attempts to satisfy the needs of not only Stillwater’s hipsters, scenesters, hippy scenesters, hippy neuvos, and scenesters of the hardcore variety, but also the regional young persons of these discerning tastes who are perhaps equally interested in tapping into it. Stories are not confined to the tiny bounds of the college community within Payne county either. Rather, you will find that the stories on this web site crawl into many nooks throughout the state of Oklahoma, and even looks at topics on a national caliber (with music and film reviews) and on a global scale (with opinion stories).
The links above will guide you through all the Sophie Zine stories you can stand, in regards to everything from music to style to social commentary… and all the other alleyways and avenues that lie between.
Please feel free the visit our myspace, and leave us your love. Thanks for all your support.
I know! Sophie Zine archives have been MIA for the past years. Sorry you missed them! I have, too.
What happened? Well, It was never my intent to take the archives offline… but I lost the domain when I forgot to pay my bill several years back. Since the project had fizzled out by then as my new professional responsibilities took center stage, I wasn’t in a hurry to get it back online. Big mistake! Someone from another part of the world bought the domain out from under me. I tried contacting them to get it back to no avail.
A couple years ago, I discovered this new buyer FINALLY let go of the URL, and I bought it back. That was just the nudge I needed. I decided it was time to dig up this time capsule and put it back online. With the help of a designer friend (thanks, Robert!), I updated the site design to make it mobile friendly for our modern world, too.
And here you have it folks! Sophie Zine archives are back online.
Enjoy it, have a laugh, remember the simpler times!
