"Hey, Dave! We did trade zines, like 100 years ago! I'm surprised you remember, and can tell you affirmatively my writing has gotten much better since I was a teenager. Would you be interested in trading again, in this decade? "

African zines?

Does anybody know of any zines from South Africa, or anywhere in Africa?  I know there are punk bands in South Africa, there must be zines there, too, right?

Hey, Dave! We did trade zines, like 100 years ago! I'm surprised you remember, and can tell you affirmatively my writing has gotten much better since I was a teenager. Would you be interested in trading again, in this decade?

Hi Dave! I 'friended you because I'm reading On Subbing, and I'm lovin' it. My Mom read it first, she works in special education, and she loved it too. I think she even sent you a fan email! :D Anyway, thanks, I'd love to trade zines. I still have copies left of Issue 1 of Minutes to Milleniums. It was the first I ever made, so it's not the best out there, but I do talk a little about my kidneys. I actually finished the zine literally minutes before I was diagnosed with PKD. But yes, I love reading about other illnesses, I can connect and sympathize in ways I really couldn't back when I was "normal". And that's both a humbling and up-lifting experience!

Hi David,
thanks for your interest in life here I am still trying to work out how best to describe Zambia it''s such a multi-faceted place full of ambiguities and I am actually working on a zine about my life here. But will definitely will get back to you soon!

Omaha's a pretty shitty town in the winter, to be quite honest. There's a collective house in Lincoln (www.lunkradio.org, if you want to check out their website and forums, etc.) that's currently trying to get a zine library started (it's mostly radical leftist literature, but from what I've seen it's getting along), and they have collective meetings every Wednesday night that are open to anyone to attend.

My favorite Vegan restaurant is McFoster's Natural Kind Cafe, which sits on the corner of 36th and Farnam, I believe. You have to try their celestial bananas, if nothing else. ;] Are you into punk music? The Hole on 16th and Leavenworth is an all-ages venue that hosts a lot of punk shows during the week. Dates/Line-ups/Other information can be found at myspace.com/theholeomaha.

Must-see sights are Gene Leahy Mall and the Old Market in downtown, and a walk through Memorial Park at 60th and Dodge Streets, and, if you're into water, checking out the pedestrian bridge across the Missouri. Not much else goes on down here. You kind of have to ask around when you get here to get the skinny on anything else. I'd be happy to show you around to a few places (if I can get the time, lol), or if you have any other questions please ask them.

Hope that helped, and I hope you have fun if you come here!
xx

Hi Dave! It's is Natalia, but not from Dublin no more. I'm out in the boonies now. I was just watching a home video of you a few weeks ago from when you read in the ole' Red Ink Bookshop! You gave out cookies to everyone! Legend!
