Righto, so it's looking like out of all of the Midlanders zinesters (except Matt), I'm having to go by myself? Fan-bloody-tastic.
This London Midlands thing; does anyone know if their trains go anywhere near the Rag Factory, because their map just ends at Euston Station, which according to Google Maps is an hour and a half walk away. Handy.
I'm pretty useless with trains and directions and pretty much everything else, so it's looking more and more like I won't be there either :/

I'm not going cos I'm poor. Remember that capitalism holds within it the seeds of its own demise.
also, if I could afford to support the capitalist regime I probably could, but I can't, because of capitalism. go figure.,..

That londonmidland thing is cool. My brother's taking advantage of that deal next Sunday but he doesn't know where he's going yet. ;)

I hadn't posted here in at least a week so I just decided to now.

In other news, I finally have completed content for a zine! I just need to kind of...sort it...neatly...and all that.

I'm tabling and running an artist trading card workshop (you better come!).
London Midlands currently has a deal on: http://www.londonmidland.com/ £10 for a ticket anywhere on their lines.

I'd been planning to go, but I'm flate-broke :-(

Don't forget to check out Mega Train! I got a return for london for 4.50 recently and it takes less than hal;f the time of the coach (1hr26mins).

Man, Ishould work for Mega Train PR or sumthin.

Just thought I'd ask who is going / thinking of going to the London Zine Symposium next Saturday? I figure if a few people from the Midlands are going it might be an idea to go down together maybe? I was thinking of coaching it from Brum if anyone had a similar idea..? Thought I'd post this now as I need time to book my ticket.

Hehe. My main problem here is to come up with something worthwhile to put in there. So for I have an article about a dog (don't ask) and a list of what I'd do if the world was flat.
To put this simply, it's not looking hopeful for me right now.
But I'm gonna give it a go. Just don't hang around for me.

OH oh oh! Even if you don't want to contribute something to the zine, you can always help us name it! While "The Midlands Zinester Zine for Zinereaders" has some charm, I think I'd rather call this something else.

Meh, I thought your conversations were randomly interesting. I'm just naturally one of those people who lurks and listens, not really caring to get a word in edgeways...when face to face with people anyway. I can talk for England on here :)

The hard part now is getting me to shut up. £50 to whoever manages it.

colaborative zines FTW!

I'll try to knock somthing up inthe next couple o' weeks.

Sorry if anyone thought I was overpowering at the meet-up. I don't listen to what I say, so I certainly don't except you to, but awkward silences make me want to die.
