hey, james: just found out about zines. new to all. but found this info. and am sharing it with you. end of summer conference in portland, oregon. july. here's the link to more info: http://www.pdxzines.com/
I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who feels that way, though I can't remember where I said that stuff about nonconformity. Have we met somewhere else on the interweb? I may be interested in trading.
I received your copies of Xeens & Things and In Between Zine last week and read them both cover to cover in a single marathon session. Good stuff. I loved the fact the a full half of each issue is dedicated to back and forth correspondence about such a wild array of topics. And there are a whole slew of odd books and movies I now feel obligated to track down.
Anyway, let me know when you get around to getting your new zine off the ground (whatever it may be) and I will certainly send you a few bucks for a copy. Reviews of the two you sent will be posted on Zineocracy.com within the week.
Ciao James, you caught me by surprise: Your zines have already found their way into my mail box. Hope you get mine quickly. I only warn you that for financial reasons, I sent mine via SAL mail. A little slower than AIR but definitely cheaper.
"But I should warn you that cracks like the one that amused you are few and far between. My personality and life-perspective are generally and unapologetically serious. I go through long quite humorless periods and only toss out a quip now and then. It seems like most people don't get them or even notice them!"
Well this should be an interesting meeting of the minds! After fifteen years of studying world history I don't take much of anything seriously; if I did I'd be unable to cope with the horror of it all!! I'll send you a copy or two of Cranky Buddha, which will probably do a better job of explain what I mean. I don't know if I'd call it a humor zine, I just happen to like to laugh and it seems to show.
In any case, I'm looking forward to reading your zine. I saw your address listed on your page, but mine is:
"I care not how affluent some may be, provided that none are miserable in consequence of it." -- Thomas Paine, Agrarian Justice (1797)
Hey, I saw a couple of your posts on the "Is Re-Selling Zines Morally Reprehensible Behavior or What?" (sic) thread, and the one about mammon really cracked me up. Would you be up for a trade? If not, I'd happily plunk down a couple of bucks to see a little bit more.
thanks for being so enthusiastic -
I really look forward to getting my hands on them.
You looked on the pig and pepper site?
Its there under submissions and ordering but i guess its in the midst of blocks of text, you can send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
i think our easiest option would be for me to try and format the titles in the way you want then check the results with you.
All the best
Hey James, I'd love to see a copy of Xeens & Things. Too bad it's the final issue. I have a number of final issues, actually. It seems I have a knack for watching a zine die. I promise I won't use it to wrap vegetables in.
I'll send you something in exchange. I have your Redwood Valley address. You can find mine on my page. Cheers - Gianni
