"I am in a similar boat. I live in Arkansas and to the best of my knowledge there isn't a single zine library anywhere in the state. Gonna see what I can do about that! :] Best wishes to you!"

"I put the project down completely. Zines aren't a huge part of my life, though, so stepping in and out is easy for me. If it's your main hobby, walking away can be depressing. :( But yeah, putting it down seems to help. Sometimes you can…"

"I have a box of old material, so I can probably turn out one more zine When you put it that way, it sounds like you really aren't that happy with/inspired by the material, so why publish it? If you are not inspired to make something, you…"

"Writing somewhere I don't normally write helps me. Buses are the best, and today I discovered writing backstage is fantastic. Getting out of your element is strangely helpful."

"'Life is oxygen, art is carbon dioxide.' I like that. Actually, I have been away from the zine world almost completely at the same time I've not been producing zines."

Thank you!

I'll put Mr. Stitch on my "To Watch" list and have Xeens & Things off to you this very morning!

(I saw your zines on your website and they looked cool!)

I'll be happy with any zine you think I might enjoy. And I will definitely not sell it on E-Bay or anywhere else.

No, I haven't seen Mr. Stitch. I did read some reviews, good and bad, on IMDB. I'm very jaded and choosy about movies these days, but I might take a look at if it's not more than a dollar to rent. It's rare to find a movie I like very much.

Xeens & Things 21, Jan/Feb 2009, 36 standard pages, side-stapled. Text heavy but front cover art. Zine, book & music reviews. Large letters section discussing many or all of the subjects listed on my profile page.

The discussion was "Zinester Don'ts" and your comments towards the end. "Fashionable non-comformity" are my words, interpretations of your own, about "anti-establishment" opinions. No, we haven't met on the Web. I've just read some of your comments. I enjoy exploring ideas as a path to better understanding, and that involves examining belief-structures (including my own), and questioning them when necessary. SOOO---I thought a zine exchange between us might be interesting.

Your comments on fashionable non-conformity are interesting. Would you like to trade a zine?

I somehow found BrightCircle's Etsy shop and took a look a the beautiful, beautiful beaded rings she makes. I had to have one! The one I wanted wasn't in my size, so she custom made one for me. It is gorgeous! You should really check out all the lovely jewelry she makes.

Yay unorthodox opinions and zine heretics! It's funny how even in "alternative" communities a lot of opinions that don't exactly follow THEIR norms often get shouted on.

Feel free to rant unorthodox-ly at me if you wish :)

Oh, that's quite all right. The vagaries of life have interfered with my mail-sending many a time. I'm glad to hear you liked ReWrite!
