Images of brainscan 25: Pre-existing conditions. I am not taking preorders. I will be at the Halifax Zine Fair tomorrow and at Canzine next weekend with copies. This is the first print run of 50. I’ll be making a few tweaks before I print more. I will also be leaving some at Blue Stockings in NYC when I’m there and I will also have then at the Richmond Zine Fest on November 6th and 7th. I will be home on November 9th and then I will start selling them. I have to come up a clever description first. I’m a bit drained after finishing this.
Basically, it’s the story of my Saturn Return. It is also a love story that spans over a decade with flashbacks from 96-98 spliced between the story of getting out of a very unhealthy relationship and back together with an old love. I have been stalling at putting this zine out for about 5 years but here it is: 80 pages half legal (7″x8.5″) with transparency and cardstock covers and a 16 page 1/8th legal epilogue zine tucked into an envelope in the back:
And that’s it.
I’ m currently bummed that my favorite Portland talk show has been booted off the air yet again. I have been listening to Rick Emerson since he was Rick Taylor and I was a 17 year old girl in Utah. I hope they land on their feet soon because its a staple of my day.
Also, tomorrow is the Halifax Zine Fair and I’m teaching a workshop on zine distribution. Wish me luck!
