It was an article on the Sticky Institute facebook page. They run a zine bookshop in Melbourne here in Australia. Will post the link here in the next few days.

I second what Betty is saying. Like, word for word. Lis, where did you hear about this?
Comment by Betty on August 27, 2010 at 4:15pm
I have nothing against Drew Barrymore, but I was not thrilled with Whip It. I mean, I liked a couple of things, but it's not like it captured what derby is about. I'm even less excited about her doing a movie about zines. But, at the same time, it could get some more people into doing zines, so that's not necessarily a bad thing.

I heard recently that Drew Barrymore is going to direct a film about someone who does zines. Is this going to be a good thing? Or will zines go the wag that roller derby skaters have? Venus Punk confused.

hello everyone! i made a 24-hour zine last month; actually this was my first zine ever :)

quarter-sized (A6), 32 pages, hand-sewn; inside black&white, each cover is hand-colored with crayons. done in the old cut n' paste style, it's your typical perzine, with short stories of my childhood, typewriters, finding a gray hair, and insects, among other tidbits...


copies of Ladybug #1 available for 1 euro, plus postage (PayPal preferred; but i might accept cash in foreign currency: $1,50 USD/CAD/AUD, or £1 GBP plus postage), or a trade for other zines (*SELECTED TRADES ONLY* for now).
* check this post for details, more pics & info on how to order/trade *

Hey guys! Issues 1 and 2 of my perzine Gathered Years are out. They discuss many things but the main topics are cats, crushes, being a cashier (or not, as of issue 2), gardening, mental health, love, and home. Typewritten, cut and paste, and made with a lot of love. :) You can contact me through here or pick them up at my Etsy shop

Hi Everyone,
I have just made my first issue of a new zine 'this is water' which is a 7 day zine about trying to pay attention, inspired by the late great David Foster Wallace.
