LITERATURE

 » Full Dark, No Stars - Stephen King's new novella questions mankind's ability to trust others.
[02.21.2011 by Bridget Doyle]

MUSIC

 » The Top 30 Albums of 2010 - Fashionably, fabulously late, our favorite music (and believe me, there was a LOT) of 2010, the year that some have called the best year for music ever. And only some of those fools work here. Plenty of usual suspects, lots of ties and a few surprises that I won't spoil, including our unexpected #1.

MUSIC

 » Live: Surfer Blood/The Drums at Lincoln Hall, Chicago, IL - Remember when Weezer used to put together records that you could sing along to and rock out to? That's what Surfer Blood's show was like!

ADVERTISING CONTACT » Advertising Department.

Advertising is exposure, and exposure generates revenue. It is a tried and true formula. Get your name out there and establish an identity. Lost At Sea online is the perfect vehicle for promoting yourself and your products. All ads should be sent via email or on a CD-ROM to the address below. Since we are not a weekly or monthly publication, we can run ads at any time. Please don't hesitate to contact us for special long-term ad rates, site statistics, or with any questions or comments.

Lost At Sea is a music, media and culture magazine that has been operating since 1998 and is closing in on half a million user sessions per month. A while back an email was sent out from one particular "webzine" boasting of 60,000 users per month and their cheapest ad space was for $125 per month! Do you believe that? Crazy, but true.

After beginning as a monthly publication in 1998, Lost At Sea eventually evolved into a weekly publishing schedule in November of 2000 and in November of 2001 began publishing thrice-weekly. In general, Lost At Sea is updated every Monday, Wednesday and Friday with new content. While web-based publications are generally regarded with less importance than print magazines by the music industry (but, by all means, please visit their website and buy their albums online!), it is no secret that work published online is read tenfold as much as work published in print. The freedom afforded us by the internet allows for a constantly expanding readership without the logistical restraints of distribution and circulation numbers that traditional publications must deal with. Our content is always online (as it has been since 1998) and always accessible - to anyone anywhere at any time.

ADVERTISING RATES
Please contact our Advertising Department for current advertising rates and special/bulk ad packages. We can develop special advertising and marketing packages for your specific needs. Like digital gymnasts, we are flexible. .

MP3 DOWNLOADS
With our new, high-tech website overhaul we have installed a hot new MP3 player and download section where we are featuring MP3 tracks from our advertisers and select Internet buddies. Unlike print magazines and other online media sites where additional fees or specific advertising packages are required, this MP3 feature comes FREE WITH ANY AD PACKAGE, and we can let you know exactly how many times your MP3s were downloaded and/or loaded in the media player. Our Downloads section provides a quick hub that instantly connects labels both big and small with a diverse readership spread around the globe. Finding your website and downloading an MP3 may be as likely as finding the proverbial needle in the haystack for someone from Bulgaria, but thanks to LAS your sounds will be readily available to anyone at any time, right alongside other established labels. If you have any other questions or comments, please drop us an .

TECHNICAL DATA
We run ads as Flash, JPEG or Animaged GIF images.
» We utilize industry standard banner sizes (468x60) to maximize compatibility with the rest of your life. Depending on the situation, we can also arrange to accomodate other banner sizes and develop unique marketing strategies for your product.
» File size for ads is limited to an absolute maximum of 30K. Yours should be way smaller than that if you want people to see it running, not loading.
» LAS hosts your banner (email it to the advertising department) but you can host it yourself if you'd like. Self hosting waives the 30K size limit above.
» Buy in bulk. It makes sense.
» You can update/change your ad at any time. Simply send us an email with the appropriate information and it will be updated, generally within 24 hours.
» If you're a bonehead with graphics or computers, don't freak out. We can design your ad for you, free of charge.
» We reserve the right to refuse any ad for any reason. Frankly, we've never yet refused an ad, but there's a first time for everything, as the saying goes.
