No more zine shirts, oh well. It was fun while it lasted.
Last year we had our first Zinester Feud. It was inspired by a dream of the lovely Erin H who runs Things You Say distro. It was a Family Feud style game show but with zine survey questions! I thought it was a pretty rad dream to turn into a reality and set up an online survey. I had this weird feeling that it was either going to be the most awesome thing every, or it was going to be a disaster. It turned out to be the most awesome thing ever! People formed teams and we had a great time. Well, we are doing it again this year. Would you like to take part in the survey that helps make up the game?
International Zine month is coming to a close. Did you finish your 24 hour zine? I did! The first print run was 20 and I plan on making another 30 more to trade at the symposium this year. After that I will decide if I am going to make more or not.
My Nobody Cares About Your Stupid Zine Podcast host, Derek Neuland, was on Fox News for his part in the Thirsty Dudes project. I’m gonna go out on a limb and suggest that is one of the reasons he STILL hasn’t edited the last podcast. It’s been in the can for months but has been in a partial state of editing. I can’t complain too much, I hate audio editing and I’m very grateful for Derek to do the dirty work! We are hoping to have that out by the end of the month and we plan to make International Zine Month round up post via Skype on Sunday. Hopefully we’ll get that out sooner rather than later.
Friday the Portland Zine Symposium is hosting a bike in movie. The movie is Triplets of Bellville. You should come.
Saturday I will be filling my wagon with my fold up table and heading to the Overlook Village Celebration to sell my wares and make buttons for the people. I have been meaning to get more involved in my neighborhood and this seemed like a great opportunity. Except, I worry that I’ll get bored. Come and visit me!
I guess that’s about it. I’m headed to the IPRC for a zine symposium meeting. We have lots to talk about! It is less than a week and a half away. yikes!
