"I do exactly the same, as well as junk mail, tram tickets and all the bills I don't want to look at. Put it through a paper shredder and they love it - and it can be composted once they've made a mess of it."

Uses for cut and paste zine scraps

I was pondering this, and figured other zinesters might have some thoughts - Whenever I make zines I inevitably end up with heaps of paper scraps I have no use for (ephemera and misprints). Obviously I could make recycled paper, or just throw it out in the recycling bin, but I'm not crazy on either of these ideas. They're not useful enough that I can think of anyone who would want them, not useless enough that I feel ok throwing them out. Has anyone come up with something better to do with…See More

Nadia Brady replied to Saling Pusa Distro/closed's discussion how can we be more eco-friendly?
"You can pass along your zines after you finish them if you're not going to read them again. :) I think it's ok to use paper, as long as you're actually using it."

And I just read Necrolatrism #1 tonight.

I don't know the actual story but I read it feeling like it was a warmup for Chronicles. I liked it, though. Very random and funny and weird.

Hey, I just read Green And Clean while I was waiting for my computer to turn on. I don't know if I'll be attempting any of them myself but it was really neat. It's exactly the kind of thing I look for in zines - obscure, weird topics and ideas that I wouldn't necessarily know about or read about any other way.

I'm definitely looking forward to Chronicles. I love getting glimpses into other people's lives, especially when they're people who live on the other side of the planet from me. One of my biggest wishlist items is a perzine from a 24 year-old Japanese guy like me.

We’ve got the odd used book store and thrift store here (Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc.) but the yard sales I was referring to are the ones where people just set up tables on their driveway outside their house and put out old clothes and games and VHS tapes that they don’t want. They post up signs around the neighborhood and people come by (it’s almost always on Saturday mornings) and look at things and buy. I don’t know if those kinds of yard sales are global or if it’s just a North American thing?
