Guess You Had To Be There

The Usual

Zines have been a part of my life off and on since 1995. I read a ton of zine anthologies and how-to books then while I was working in a library. I immediately connected to zines as an art form and loved the freedom of expression aspect. Biographical, how-to, and travel writing are my favorite reading materials and many zines fit those slots. Lately, I have been buying zines more often and working on a zine of my own (at long last).

Well, I have actually made one, slim, quarter-sized how-to zine about creating and trading ATCs (artist trading cards) already. It's cute and tiny. As you can tell, when it comes to making zines, I am really just a newbie. My heart is in the right place, though. Spreading the word on zines and zine-making is a favorite pastime for me, and I hope I will be putting out my first perzine (to be entitled "Guess You Had To Be There" ) before the end of this year (or, ha ha, in the spring of next year).

Zine Uni Dream!!

Posted on February 14, 2010 at 7:00am 0 Comments

So, one morning a few months ago (I am just getting around to posting this), I had a dream. I wrote down a very short blurb about it that morning.



"We were all majoring in Zines at a university. It was like theatre classes, only for everything to do with zines. There were so many people I knew, because my mind used all the faces from profile photos on We Make Zines to fill in the faces of my fellow dream classmates."



Awesome,…

wally whitman's quote re states is cool
one of my FAV poems is his 'crossing brooklyn ferry'

ol' Abe...said it best re individuals...

you cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong; you cannot help the poor by destroying the rich; you cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves'
:):)

my FAV poems are also 'the most of it' bobby frost and his 'tree at my window' and 'sunday morning' by stevens and ..., oh, 'bout 1, 000 others...:)

It is snowing like the dickens here today - a fine day for making zines, indeed. Working at home does not allow for many snow days, though; I hope to work on some comics tonight...

"Wow. Good information. Thanks for letting me know. I will have to see if there is a stamp collector shops anywhere around here. :) So are you saying that even the old fashioned lick 'em stamps should not be steamed? Because of chlorine? or "
