EDITOR'S NOTE Adrió Súria i Talarn This is the fourth edition of The Avantgarde, and the first this year. A new year with new challenges, challenges as difficult as they are beautiful and fun. In just one year of life, we have already had to face the problems that a magazine brings. Sleeping writers, editors who, due to personal circumstances, cannot continue with their work at the magazine and delayed magazine launch dates. But fortunately and with a lot of effort, we have managed to overcome each of these problems. This fourth edition of the magazine is different. We have listened to the reviews carefully, and we are trying to evolve to satisfy all of our readers. With more colors, more games, puzzles, different content, and new writers. I cannot finish this note without mentioning Istanbul Magazine, which has unfortunately closed indefinitely. The Avantgarde was born thanks to the inspiration of Istanbul Magazine, and the help of several of its members (such as Aurora Dell'Acqua). Our doors are open to all Istanbul Magazine members who want to join in on this beautiful project. Thanks for reading The Avantgarde!
Speaking of Kobe, did you master the Kobe Sutra? Girl! I hope you did, I know you’re flexible enough to do all the moves, and only Kobe and those men you’ve been with know what can we do. What about those boobs though? did they grow a bit? Did your butt bubble? Don't tell me I’m doing squats for nothing? if you don’t have those, I am disappointed in you. What are you doing reading this letter? Get up and go do your exercises, lazybones! Oh did you get any weird tattoos in weird places? I dream of getting a nipple piercing, did you FINALLY have the balls to do it? Dear future me AN IRONIC VIEW OF THE EVOLUTION OF HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY. Maya Parsons Are you still a mess? Right now, your life is a complete mess, you’re still a teenager, rumbling around, trying to figure things out, you ask a lot of questions which may seem like a pain in the ass for some people but I hope, at least, you have a few more things figured out by now, else WTF? (slap yourself for me… Good girl!) Do you still answer the couch’s calls even when you have tons of things to do? Did you at least change the couch? The poor thing is sick of you and your smelly fart. Go out, make plans, go camp, go for a sail (please not the seven seas again!), have some wine, smoke a joint, or throw yourself in front of a car and pray to Kobe nothing will happen. Trust me, you do wanna do that you’re just playing it safe.
I hope you became a famous musician, you bubblehead. If you haven’t, MOVE GO GO GO GO NOOOOW! Did you do as we planned and married all your girlfriends (If anybody ever wants to be with this bomb of insanity!) and had an army of children with your boyfriend? You did, didn’t you? You nasty! Do you have flying cars yet? Funky silver jumpsuits? Are aliens friends and business partners? Did you learn how to dance or do you still dance like a newborn fawn? I know I ask too many questions, by like I mentioned « »b e f o r e , I a m a q u e s t i o n s f r e a k ! B I T E M E ! Future self, I intend to bolster you with all the support and love you will need for the next chapter of your life. You’re going to make the same mistakes a lot!! (because we’re stupid!). Be aware of your patterns! I hope you feel like you've weathered the storm in ways you didn't think possible and are surprising those around you with the limitless nature of your compassion. Don't cry, ew. I was just saying. This is why I don't tell you nice things hmph. With love, Maya Parsons.

MY GUILTY PLEASURE artpop Moira Huff AN ART ARTICLE FROM AN ART LOVER. I HOPE YOU LIKE IT! I’ve been told that the first piece of art I created was when I, at I want to do other stuff than just paintings of myself. I’m the hopeful age of three, used my fresh out-of-the-box crayons so incredibly beautiful that all the art should be about to draw on the white wall of our home. I’m pretty sure it’s true me, right? Yep, didn’t think so. I love how we’re pushed because it’s embarrassing and my brother wouldn’t let me forget at school to think outside that damn box. Instead of an embarrassing story like that. I don’t remember what the art painting a bowl of fresh fruits, we paint rotten ones. was about, I was probably in my native stage as an artist. Though Instead of being taught about all the classic schools of now I’ve learned that it’s naïve art and even that doesn’t mean painting, we’re given a studio space and liberty to do our what I thought it did! worst. I can go to a park and paint a squirrel or try to capture the struggle of a really bad guitar player I’ve learned that because I managed to doodle together an essay struggling with barre chords. I dream of being able to that portrayed me as a potential art student and a painting that provide for myself with my art, but even if I can’t, I’ll still portrayed, well, me. Okay, I claimed it didn’t, saying the hair do it. wasn’t like on me, but I just didn’t want to say out loud that I got into an art school with a nude picture of myself. It’s showing just my bareback, though, so keep your pants on! Why did I want to get in though? Because I had to. Inside you, inside your head/heart/mind and you just have to get it out or you’ll burst! It can be about anything you create! You see a lump of clay and you know you have to make something out of it. You see a pristine wall of concrete and that spray can in your backpack is calling you. You see an empty canvas and have a yearning to put some paint on it. Create. I have to create.
Page 33 Grande classe Magazine pour ados So, is this one of those you-can-be-anything-you-set-your-mind-at motivational texts? Maybe with a picture of a cute kitten saying ’hang in there? No! Because the chances are that you can’t do that. Most likely you’re not talented enough and there’ll be people that have no problem in telling you that. Stop wasting your time with stupid dreams. It isn’t going to happen. You’re not so special, you’re not unique, you dumb snowflake. What you call art isn’t that. It’s just stains on the paper, spot on a canvas. It’s vandalism of public property, it’s an uninspired pattern of notes of music that gives nothing to anyone. You will be told these things and the people telling them will make sure you listen and believe. And they are right. Because art is stupid. It’s silly. It’s unnecessary. Art is useless, pointless. Art is less. But if you have that yearning, you don’t care. Maybe no one will even praise what you do. Maybe they overlook you and what you create, but you don’t care. You’ll burst if you don’t do this most important of the unimportant things in the world – art. You’ll be what and who you are because staying true to yourself and your art is the only way to exist. But then again, what do I know. I’m just a 17-year old girl who thinks she’s an artist and that she can paint. She’ll probably stop doing this soon, wise up and start studying for some real, proper profession. She really should. Luckily she’s not that smart.
Well, it is not only what women want, or what men What women want but what everyone wants; to be seen as a want person and not a faceless, disposable lech-gadget of self-gratification.

Turkish, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French, German... we will be able to enjoy exclusive content in all those languages in each edition of the magazine. In this way, we will not only be able to read (and learn) other languages, but we will also be able to get to know the culture of many parts of the world through natives.

The Avantgarde Edição portuguesa Anne-Laure Bouleau
E ANTG R Esperança H V D T E Anne-Laure Bouleau A A Fui atingido por uma onda gigante que virou meu barco de cabeça para baixo Learn portuguese Não meu caro leitor, eu não estou nos sete Ê M mares a desbravar todas aquelas ilhas S E misteriosas. Esta foi apenas uma recordação que veio a mim diante do que vem me U P acontecendo nos últimos dias. Pareceu mesmo O que minha vida virou de cabeça pra baixo e G que estive me afogando. R Após o o meu \"felizes para sempre\" terminar de forma repentina, quando minha doce Cristal foi levada pela musa celestial, me vi perdida. É como se todas as vozes tivessem se calado e o dia virado noite no mesmo instante. Por muitos dias eu apenas sentei na varanda de meu quarto, local onde costumávamos conversar sobre tudo, para fumar um baseado e beber meu uísque. Ali eu perdia a noção do tempo e ficava até adormecer, desta vez não haveria ninguém pra me levar pra cama e cobrir os meus pés. Dizem que se entorpecer nos deixa mais relaxados e até faz com que a dor diminua. Quanta bobagem! Parecia que quanto mais eu me embriagava, mais clareza sobre os fatos eu tinha. Então eu passei a escrever, mas não eram as cartas de amor de outrora ou os versos românticos, que ultimamente preenchia meu diário. Desta vez os versos vinham carregados de meu pesar e se apresentavam numa escala de cores que rumava para tons cada vez mais escuros. Houve quem disse que meus versos estavam tão negros quanto a noite. Num destes momentos de desabafo, eu peguei meu caderninho. Eram 3 da manhã, acordei num sobressalto após mais uma vez ter adormecido no chão frio da varanda, tomei um gole do que sobrara de meu uísque e fiquei a olhar pra escuridão. Fiquei ali com o olhar fixo e absorta por alguns minutos até que vieram- me estas palavras. U T
Sei que parece difícil No mesmo instante meu coração se acalmou Aguentar este vazio e um sorriso veio em meu rosto. Não sei se foi Acredite, é possível a onda do álcool e do baseado, mas foi como Recuperar o seu brilho se a própria musa tivesse tirado um tempo para vir me consolar. Não se deixe mais abater Nem tudo tem explicação No dia seguinte eu vesti o meu uniforme de Você ainda haverá de ter bombeira e parti para uma missão de resgate Conforto em seu coração na torre infernal. Resgatar aquelas pobres pessoas inocentes me trouxe paz e me fez Neste olhos hoje tristonhos sentir mais viva do que nunca. Um brilho novo há de surgir E terá ainda mais sonhos Sei que você aí quando perde alguém pode pensar que sua vida acabou ou que o vazio Nesta dor que não termina nunca mais será preenchido. Entretanto há Alguém mais forte está por vir muita força em você e tudo que precisa fazer E bem maior do que imagina é se dar um tempo e após este período acreditar que ainda há algo pelo que lutar. Eu ainda estou viva! Você ainda está vivo! Enquanto há vida há esperança!

crime series Here we go with our Crime Series! In this new space of the magazine, criminals from all over the world (and outside of anonymity) will tell us about their adventures and their best robberies! In this first appearance of our Crime Series, French thug Laurent Cannone tells us about his experience with his own criminal gang, called Ephemera. Le Voyou Laurent Cannone Well, hello to everyone! I don't really know what I'm getting into but I've been asked to write a little article about my life as an outlaw (I've mellowed down, the cops reading this should leave me alone, it's not me, I'm innocent!) First of all, I apologize if this article awakens vocations in some of your children (it's not me, I'm innocent!) I was asked what differentiates a rock star from a criminal. So I answer: a lot of things! There are advantages and disadvantages. First of all, we have a hard life! We know about jails and escapes, chases and beatings. And we know Bubba! Do you know Bubba? No, I don't think so... A lot of people think that prison is shit and misery, but it's not! It sculpts a man (or a woman) in jail! You learn a lot of things against a packet of ciggy from time to time and sometimes you find interesting things left by the former tenant of the room. Once I was alone in the prison (I say in the prison, not in the cell) it was a complete desert! There was only one guard staring at me with his evil look. Although deep down I knew he was really pissed off to be there, watching me so I wouldn't escape. And honestly, I'm really lazy about escaping that day.
He probably would have preferred to finish at 4pm to go Of course, it's not always an back to his little family, but no, he had to stay there. And advantage to be a thug... The only I was being a pain in the arse! After walking around in time it really pissed me off to go to circles all morning, I saw something sticking out from prison was when I missed my first under the bed. It was a box and inside I found two wedding. Yeah mine, not a mate's. I jackets, one in jeans and the other a yellow Teddy jacket. wasn't a best man or anything, I was the husband! Damn it, it made my day again! So yes, it's not much, but you have to know that striped suits from the clink make I was so fucking pissed that day! me look bad. So yes, I was happy to be able to put on a Two days before, we had recovered great denim jacket! Well the other jacket I didn't wear some jewellery from a hotel room because it reeked of its former owner's sweat, very little safe. I'd smashed the bellman's face for me! So it's cool in prison, you can find cool stuff in, I was pretty proud of myself. sometimes. Unfortunately we had left a trail and the pigs were looking for us. There's also something in prison that can be as fun as it is dangerous. It depends on who's taking a shower at the We hid out for two days at a friend's time actually. house, but our official wedding was Yeah, because when it's Bubba who drops the soap, it's fast approaching and I didn't even really not classy at all... But when it's your wife, it's not have anything to wear. the same! Well, I'm not going to give details because there might be innocent people reading this, but you get The day before the wedding I thought the idea. it should be fine, they must have forgotten about us with that bank Because yes, I've been in the slammer with my first wife. robbery thing from another gang. So We played it a bit like Bonnie and Clyde. But when we I went to get my suit... and they got found ourselves in the showers after a day in solitary me! They took me away while I was confinement, I can't tell you how it went! trying on my suit, I barely had time to put my pants on! Oh luckily they didn't get my fiancée at the time, she left quickly for London. So I missed my wedding because I was in jail. We organised it the following month and I was good. But in the end it was all for nothing as I've now changed my wife! All this to say that just because you've spent days, weeks, years in prison and you be built like a badass that we don't have a great anecdote to tell! We've seen more of them than even rock stars!

The Mistery Case They were four band members. A Guitarist, a Bass player, a Drummer, and the youngest one is the Lead Singer. They were going to jam but Lead Singer never showed up. Others saw him last night, in his house, they all gone drunk. Hung out. And they split into their own homes. Lead Singer is a bit cocky, riding his high horse. But he is cheerful and friendly too. They all like him but also jealous of him. Still, his disappearance made them sad. Now, he's missing for two days and cops are searching for him. No one knows if he's alive or dead, he may be kidnapped but no phone calls came for any ransom or something. Other group members were questioned. They almost said the same things. They hung out and gone to their own homes. Seems like a dead end! But, some night walker-dealer guy told the police that he saw Lead Singer at dawn, walking on the beach with some other guy. It was still dark so he couldn’t identify the other guy but he said 'I'm not sure but I heard they were arguing about the future of some kind of a band? But I'm not sure because I was so high that night' Police should try everything to solve the case so, they need to search on New York public beach and places near it. Do you think you’re up to the challenge ? can you help the police to find out what happened? Clues will be spread on the magazine pages, look carefully! \"The Police should start searching for the first clue in the 'Open Homes' of New York City. When they find it, they should inform Chief Officer Miss Roalfe. After the first clue come to the light, the second will come to sight. When they find out the second clue, they need to discuss the case in the forum.\" Guidelines: 1- Search for the first clue in one of the open homes of NY 2- Comment on the AG forum thread and tell us what was the clue 3- The second clue will be dropped in another place, this time, you need to search for that place’s name somewhere on the magazine pages Prize: 5M will be given to the lucky winner Good luck!
Prank on demand! HEY IT'S MY DEBUT FOR THE AVANTGARDE. I REALLY LIKE TO RELEASE THE NEW SECTION 'THE AVANTGARDE'S FUNNIEST SIDE' WITH THIS PRANK. I HOPE YOU ENJOY IT! Michela Righi Joking is a serious thing! Yes, I know, it may seem like a contradiction but trust me. Ok, I can already hear your objections: how can you trust a stranger? Pleased to meet you, my name is Michela Righi, I am from Rome and I love metal. Here, I'm no longer a stranger now! Can you trust me already?! But, seriously, surely most of you will know Maya Parsons, one of the splendid editors of this magazine, so if despite my presentation you were still assailed by atavistic and monstrous doubts, you could trust her judgment. But why did I bring it up?!?
Good question, easy answer: Maya and I have set up a professional joke company, M&M's. We are professional, dedicated, zealous, and treacherous enough to deliver any kind of joke you plan to play on any of your friends or foes. We have no qualms. We're too cool. And ruthless. And elusive. We are at your service, in case you don't feel like messing with your karma. And we don't care about our karma, because we know it. We know we are destined for hell... and we're delighted about it! But now enough talk, let's move on to the facts. That day, Maya and I (M&M's) were talking about how much we love to be wicked, about the perks of evil. One thing led to another and our nature led us to talk about teasing our friends with something perverse. And speaking of a joke, our first victim had to be our Franck. I mean, prank - Franck. They sound pretty much the same! So our mind got filled with obscene thoughts (yes, let's pretend it was just for that moment!). What could we have done to confuse him immensely?!? We sent him all the cocktails with the kinkiest names, weird digits on his bank account, but the highlight was the personalized bears. A TIDE of personalized teddy bears. (I'll let you imagine the nature of the customization, though *wink wink*). From that moment the dances began. Franck contacted us both, so confused. Also because the sentences were broken and arrived in random order. (*evil laugh*) We invaded his London apartment with teddy bears. We made him wait for days before giving him a clue, we did not let ourselves be moved by his desperation, by subterfuges (like a solitary interrogation suffered by myself), no sir!
