Thanks so much for the compliments. I totally agree about the anti-rave hysteria & the grammar nazi rant. Of course, the anti-rave hype by this person (I'm at the library & away from your zine right now) is just one the tip of the propaganda ice-berg about 1 million "epidemics" and "crises" clamored about on the 6 O'Clock news and everywhere else.
On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd say I was in the 7 to 9 range as a standard English purist, but I totally agree it'd ridiculous & rude to put down people whose English may not be as good as mine, even to "gently correct them" is obnoxious. I'm very interested in English/language & I'm putting together some zine back issues for you with my thoughts about it (Don't worry, they're short). I joined the American Dialect Society listserv, but it's much too hard for me to navigate/get through, so I seldom try anymore. I'd love an APA on language/grammar/usage/semanitcs, but failing that, even a forum with a structure doesn't totally confuse me would be welcome. I've slowly developed some competence with Yahoo.
Anyway, I'll send you those zines. You can read and/or comment if you like to, no obligation.
Glad you got my zine...and even more stoked about all of the kind words you left. :) Thank you for the glowing review that you included. Very appreciative! I hope that we can do more trades in the future!
I got your zine in, and I absolutely love it! It is so fun and random, with a great sense of humor (that reminds me very much of my own. BONUS POINTS!!) that really drives the zine home. Wonderfully done, Kari!
Hey I would love to trade for an issue of Shards of Glass in Your Eye! I have a zine called Printaissance and there are three issues available that you can choose from. Let me know what issue you would like and you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested! :)
