Let me start off by saying the response was enormous!!! The photos are incredible!!! This issue of the CRUSH MODEL Emagazine - 2ND ANNUAL SUMMER SWIM SUIT EDITION is one of the hottest editions yet...BAR NONE!!! From the cover page to the center fold to the end page, this edition is pure Fire!!! There are sooo many people I wish to thank, and this truly isnâ€™t log enough to accommodate the number of people I need to thank. This is truly the One Year Anniversary of CRUSH MODEL eMAGAZINE. Yes, just one short year and we are still growing by leaps and bounds. The word is out, the photos are coming in and the level of quality has continued to increase.
One nice landmark is that CRUSH MODEL eMAGAZINE has gone international!!! Several Italian based photographers are interested in posting their great photos in CRUSH MODEL eMagazine as well. Our market is increasing and that also increases the exposure of our models. This has been our concept from the beginning; to provide a platform for up and coming models, photographers and MUA to get the much needed exposure that you need. Once again, this is a tremendous honor for me to do this work and to present this edition. I must also state that if you have submitted your photos but have not seen your photo published in our I implore you not to give up, not to give in, work harder, perfect your craft and keep submitting them. We have some themed editions, but some other editions have no specific themes, but just presenting the great work of our contributors. One thing to keep in mind; we are always looking to increase the scope of our reach and to increase the quality of our product. Our goal is to be one of the best online Fashion magazines on the web. With that in mind, we will continue to evolve and expand our boundaries. I appreciate those who decided to take this journey with us...there may be bumps in this road and maybe even some detours but we are well on the way to building a great brand . Thank you and enjoy the ride. Damien Prout, Editor

Over the years men have become increasingly competitive. It’s not limited to our nation. It’s on a global sonally, I’ve had enough! Yes enough! Every day we sit in front of the “lazy tube” (television) and see news throughout the world, how the male population has harmed and/or killed one another, women, and even our childr be the catalyst to these horrific crimes. So as a black man, I want to speak to you; the black men of our nation.
One Saturday morning, a few of my male friends and I were talking over a well-cooked breakfast after a fun town! Yes, I did the cooking. The jubilation of the previous evening put us in the mindset of a great new day...wel usual, we conversed on various topics; finances, fishing, grilling, women, and our children. Unfortunately, this mo terrupted by disturbing news on the “lazy tube”. A young black male was driving through Atlanta, GA, at top spee with Georgia’s finest in pursuit. He eventually crashed and dashed to live and steal another day. They eventually days later. When my friends and I heard this it only briefly drew our attention away from our conversation. I though this incident but chose not to, and to my surprise, my morning cohorts didn’t as well. It seemed we mutually share us now moment”. I wondered did they feel the personal embarrassment and humiliation I felt looking at my “b seems like in every city I have ever lived in, I awake to the news of the same, or very similar, issues of the day and man shot, two men killed, a drive by bullet goes through window and kills a child, men stealing hair from a beauty s on really? Hair?!!) And who is responsible for this early night news? Black men!
I think that at this time in our lives, my friends and I had h better things to do and talk about than discuss this young the fool (as my Granddaddy would say). However, in the thought “but how can I make a change?”
Do you remember the old school rap song “Self Destructi Self Destruction!”? Well, as they say, every twenty years return. Just like those fades and high top hair styles (yes H returned and it has gotten out of hand again. There was a t ished life and violent crime drastically decreased. If you was I do not know exactly because I was not born yet! B than ever before. As we increasingly lose our black men, ourselves what we can do to change this situation. Collec help educate and sustain the black male population. I too h takes but things improved once I was led by GOD. Not all but with your help we can reach them. If you come up with or dream that you feel would positively impact our black others that have the mutual determination of helping our y there is more to life then just to be killing, robbing, rap THE DAMN FOOL!
