Excellent :). I wanted to check, because I guess mix CDs are giving away music for free and I know from reading your zine that you want to sell more CDs (understandably!) but if it's just one or two tracks I give them it might lead them to buy the EP. I'm so excited to read somewhere (can't remember where) that you're recording an album too! :D
Ah that's good about the marriage thing. I think keeping your own name is great, especially when you're using it for music too. I'll look forward to your letter - I'm actually planning to ask for submissions for a comp zine about penpalling soon, so if you're into that, maybe you'd like to contribute something? I'll post more info about it on the forum soon :) xxx
P.S. & thanks for your CD - I love it! I'm going to put some songs from it on mix CDs for friends, hope you don't mind? Might lead more people to discover your music :).
And good luck with your exams! x
Hello, I'm glad to hear it got there safely. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on it - I know from reading your zines you're engaged, and I'm interested to hear the views of people for whom feminism and marriage are compatible (I hope you won't think my stance on marriage is offensive, I think/hope I wrote it in a way that reflects my opinion that for some people they are, but for me personally, they're not. & also I recognise that there are other factors for other people, like religious reasons).
My address labels are from vistaprint, if you sign up there they periodically send you offers for freebies, and all you have to pay is the VAT and postage, so it's about £2 for 140 labels (hence me having lots of different sets, hehe). xxx
Hi again Catherine, how are you? I've been lsitening to some of your music online and I love it! I was wondering if you'd be interested in doing a part-trade for your EP - I believe it's £3 so could I PayPal you £2 and post you a copy of issue 2 of my zine? x
I think I made a mistake and you two 2.00 GPB payments, but if you can send me the other two issues, that`s ok. I also accept your suggestions of other good feminist zines! \o/ I `d love reading them too!
i just listen your tracks on myspace,let me tell you that your music is awesome!.If you wanna some kind of support with the music please let me know i can do a review of your ep on my review blog and play your music on my radio show as well
Hey, I saw your post on the forums about how you can't sell things through your wordpress blog, I just wanted to let you know that you can sell things through your blog, all you have to do is download the plugin.
hey there Catherins,
i would love to trade for your latest issue. i have 2 issues of my "Damaged Mentality" and 2 issues of a comp zine, where i'm featured, "Flood". let me know what ya wanna trade/ have available. i'm up for a 4 for 4 exchange (or whatever).
I read the existing issues of your zine through a distro and really enjoyed them. I could relate to a lot of the content and admired your honest writing (it helped inspire me to be 100% open and honest when writing my zine). Can't wait for issue #4!
awesome, great! I'm so thrilled when my mail actually gets places now, it's been so haphazard lately. If you send the letter in February, I'll have a new address, so just let me know. Either way, it'll get to me, it'll just be slower if it goes to my old place. :) I would give it to you now, but I don't know the postal code yet.
Anyway, I'm really glad you got them!
