Aww man I am sorry! What dates will you be in town? I can see if someone has a program at the library during that time. Someone is doing a writing workshop that talks about writing zines. We will see if the stars will align! Ice cream would be great too.
i think i have plans for July 17th (so i could join you either before or after)
San Francisco places; Modern Times books is a collective, so is Bound Together Books. (There is a used bookstore near Modern Times that is friendly to zines/events but i forgot their name.) They are pretty political spaces as is Station 40. Needles and Pens is more of a commercial space and kinda uptight but service the zine community. Punk spaces include Thrillhouse Records and 1-2-3-4 Go Records (who also have a store in Oakland). Both of those spaces seem zine event friendly.
East Bay Pegasus Books on Shattuck is very zine friendly but may already be booked for events. Issues and Book Zoo in Piedmont are both into zines/events, pretty relaxed about last minute events yet small. I staff the Long Haul in berkeley on thursdays yet something could be arranged on other days. Rock Paper Scissors, Econ Jam and Wolfman Books are all in/near downtown Oakland and are supportive of zines. You better grab one of the places soon. Near there is a cafe called Black Spring with the owner a person in the punk scene and a writer--so he may be supportive of a zine event. Also there's a place called Grease Diner that seems very DIY and into zines. At one time people could do shit at Nabolom Bakery and the Gilman and it would be cool--though the people most excited about zines don't seem to be working there now.

Hey, Dave! We did trade zines, like 100 years ago! I'm surprised you remember, and can tell you affirmatively my writing has gotten much better since I was a teenager. Would you be interested in trading again, in this decade?
Hi Dave! I 'friended you because I'm reading On Subbing, and I'm lovin' it. My Mom read it first, she works in special education, and she loved it too. I think she even sent you a fan email! :D Anyway, thanks, I'd love to trade zines. I still have copies left of Issue 1 of Minutes to Milleniums. It was the first I ever made, so it's not the best out there, but I do talk a little about my kidneys. I actually finished the zine literally minutes before I was diagnosed with PKD. But yes, I love reading about other illnesses, I can connect and sympathize in ways I really couldn't back when I was "normal". And that's both a humbling and up-lifting experience!
thanks for your interest in life here I am still trying to work out how best to describe Zambia it''s such a multi-faceted place full of ambiguities and I am actually working on a zine about my life here. But will definitely will get back to you soon!
Omaha's a pretty shitty town in the winter, to be quite honest. There's a collective house in Lincoln (www.lunkradio.org, if you want to check out their website and forums, etc.) that's currently trying to get a zine library started (it's mostly radical leftist literature, but from what I've seen it's getting along), and they have collective meetings every Wednesday night that are open to anyone to attend.
My favorite Vegan restaurant is McFoster's Natural Kind Cafe, which sits on the corner of 36th and Farnam, I believe. You have to try their celestial bananas, if nothing else. ;] Are you into punk music? The Hole on 16th and Leavenworth is an all-ages venue that hosts a lot of punk shows during the week. Dates/Line-ups/Other information can be found at myspace.com/theholeomaha.
Must-see sights are Gene Leahy Mall and the Old Market in downtown, and a walk through Memorial Park at 60th and Dodge Streets, and, if you're into water, checking out the pedestrian bridge across the Missouri. Not much else goes on down here. You kind of have to ask around when you get here to get the skinny on anything else. I'd be happy to show you around to a few places (if I can get the time, lol), or if you have any other questions please ask them.
Hope that helped, and I hope you have fun if you come here!
Hi Dave! It's is Natalia, but not from Dublin no more. I'm out in the boonies now. I was just watching a home video of you a few weeks ago from when you read in the ole' Red Ink Bookshop! You gave out cookies to everyone! Legend!
Hey I know this is kinda late, but I just got internet. My zine bear pussy is fucked up. I didn't make enough copies and lost the orignal prints sorry :(. hahah my sad face looks like it has an awesome mole. anyways haha I'm making a new one about dreams, if you are intrested I can possibly send it to you.
I spent like 10 months in SE asia, so by the end of it I was kind of used to the heat. I didn't even have shorts by that point (they broke), I was wearing long (though very thing) pants/trousers!
The monkeys can be scary sometimes. I was cycling down a hill/mountain thing in Malaysia and stopped to take photoso of monkeys. They were totally chill until I started cycling off again, then they freaked out. I hadn't fed them like all the other tourists! They even chased me a bit.
I made a couple of zines about my trip if you want to trade. Though I can only trade the Thailand/Cambodia one as I can't photocopy the VIetnam one due to UK/North Amrican paper size differences.
Haha, I picked up on where this discussion was from, I probably should have just commented on your page in the first place.
Those names dont' sound familiar, but I am really bad at names. Some of my friends from KL on facebook are facebook friends with someone called Arwith Utarid?
I haven't been to KL in years, so I think it's probably changed a lot. I did go up the Petronas towers, but don't remember being that amazing? It looked cooler outside.
I didn't see any Rafflesia either, but I did so much cool stuff in Malaysia I didn't really care. Orangutans!
