“ARE YOU OUT THERE?!” (Phil Lynott) 

  1. Q: “Can I get CIRCUS Magazine at the newsstand?” 

            A: While working in bookstores, I learned all of the ways that magazine companies were being stolen from and I’m determined to not let that happen to CIRCUS. When our quarterly issues begin, they’ll be available through online ordering only for the first year. Then we’ll try sending a few copies to outlets. 


    2. Q: "Why watermarks?"

            A: Using a watermark shows that these pages came from us, the official CIRCUS Magazine. Without them, a number of Circus “tribute” sites would quickly copy and use those images for their own benefit without crediting the source.

LLC Annual Report For WIX.jpg

In 2010 I started the first social media group for CIRCUS Magazine. By 2012 I’d noticed that our reach was being restricted (shadow banned). 

I mentioned this to my audience and the majority responded with “Every place has rules to attend. Follow them and you’ll have no problems.” But recently, some of those that heard my message have witnessed it to their own accounts.

I decided that there should be many channels in case the main one has “difficulties”. In April 2016 we’d spread to over 20 outlets and told our fans the reasons behind this. 

Some answered with “I only use ______ and I’m not going anywhere else. If you can’t post here then I’ll see you later.” 

[Reference: In the past, there were only a couple of tv channels to watch and if you didn’t change the dial to a different station, you missed your entertainment.] 

By now it should be common knowledge about the censoring that’s done to some on social media. We never had free reign to

say / post what we truly wanted. It was always a compromise.
