a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I read my buddy's zine, Coffee and Board Games, the other night, and in there somewhere a kid tells a story about how Columbine affected his life. It made me think about how it affected mine. It made me think about how certain events affect all of us.
I think I'd like to start a new zine. Each issue would have 5-10 contributers, and each issue would focus on a different theme. Possible themes would be Columbine, 9/11, Obama being elected, Michael Jackson passing away, Hurricane Katrina, etc etc etc.... ?? Any well known event, good or bad, that affected a lot of us. There would be no designated viewpoint or political objective, but rather the point would simply be to hear a variety of stories and viewpoints.
Any interest in this? If so, let me know. It's good to document this type of stuff, I think. In 100 years some kid will do research on school shootings, or presidential elections, and our voices will be appreciated.
blake, you should DEFINITELY contribute.
