a place for zinesters - writers and readers
My housemates and I had friends over on July 4th for basically the entire day so I fell a day behind. It's OK though, I'm sure I'll catch up - I can tell you're worried.
*Re-read your favorite zines
I gave away my zine collection 4 years ago, and then again 2 years ago - although that second time I did keep a handful. So I selected from them and from others more recently acquired:
Barefoot and in the Kitchen #2 - When i first got this, I made the fudge recipe - it didn't quite turn out although it was awesomely delicious. Even more awesome, I wrote the author and she wrote back.
Citizeen: How to Make Community - I first encountered this on a trip to Portland. I was checking out the public library because I'm a library nerd and was thrilled to find they had a zine section. I read through a bunch and this one was so awesome I bought it as soon as I could find a copy.
Practical War Tax Resistance #5 - I'm not sure this is a zine or not. I think so. Pretty sure I got this in Asheville, NC at Firestorm Cafe. Super inspirational. Reminded me just how much I've drifted from what I consider some of my core beliefs. Need to get on that.
The Manor #1 - one of the first, if not the first, RPG zines I purchased. In any case, it's the one that made me want to write my own RPG zine.
*Teach yourself a new zine skill
On Saturday, I got my order from Sweet Candy Distro. Thanks to my copy of Stolen Sharpie Revolution (which was part of my order), I now understand what the hell photo-copier art is.
*Check out ZineWiki.org and add your zine
Well, in fact, it's zinewiki.com.
I added 6 Iron Spikes & a Small Hammer to the zine wiki. Felt a little weird doing it - I've only put out one issue after all and there's less than 30 copies in circulation at this point. But really, why should that matter?
