Alex Wrekk’s Eastern North America Mini tour thing…
Hello! Greeting from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. I have been here for a week for the Anchor Archive’s Zine Residency Program (http://www.robertsstreet.org

was going to try to hit up the Milwaukee Zine Fest on the way home but I have tickets to see The Pixies the same day back in Oregon and they are playing Doolittle in its entirety, which was my first Pixie’s Album. After that I go into holiday mode plus gearing up for the 2010 Portland Zine Symposium! Stay tuned for dates! Other stuff:
Paul us at home picking up my slack and making custom buttons and packing zines and copies of Stolen Sharpie Revolution for my Etsy shop: http://brainscan.etsy.com
I’ll have my new zine/s up as soon as I get home as well as fresh roasted coffee.
We are looking for a new zine friendly housemate in Portland. Let me know if you know anyone looking for a place.
