Oh, thanks, but, I have plans. I'm looking forward to seeing you though. Are you tabling?

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.

For a reading I'd recommend Monkeywrench Books! I no longer write zines but would love to attend the reading!

Hi Dave! I love On Subbing! Here are some Austin recommendations I've collected:

BookPeople is an awesome large bookstore with children's and adult books, plus there's a coffeeshop in the store. Waterloo Records and Whole Foods (vegan food within) are across the street too.

The Austin Public Library (my workplace!) has a zine collection at the Faulk Central Library. I work in the youth section. Come say hi and check out our zines!

Half Price Books has used books.

If you're looking for comics, Austin Books and Comics is my favorite, and also Tribe Comics (south Austin) and Dragon's Lair are great for comics.

Wheatsville (grocery store with a cafe inside) and Bouldin Creek are my favorite for vegan food. Banzai Sushi and Grill has really yummy tofu rolls. This websitehas awesome suggestions for food trailers and such. Full disclosure: I'm not vegan, but some of my good friends are. Sugar Circus and Sugar Mamas both have awesome vegan cupcakes. I've never been to Capital City Bakery, but their baked goods are all vegan. Sweet Ritual has dairy-free ice cream. Yummm. Rabbit Food Grocery is new and looks amazing.

Mother's Cafe & Garden is all vegetarian, Casa de LuzQuickie Pickie is a convenience store with a cafe. My friend recommends their vegan tacos. The Vegan Nom is a food trailer.

Mount Bonnell has a great sunset view and also has a strict curfew rule (I got a ticket there once, so beware!)

Hike and Bike Trail for a great sunset over the river

Hey - I'm mailing you out a zine tomorrow! Yippee!

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!

Hi David,
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!

Dave, are you in KC now? just saw the big pile up on the interstate down there! Damn! KC is cool though, i've been through many many times!

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!

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!
