Are you playing along at home with the 31 activities? Here’s what I’ve been up to:
Day 1 – I posted on the We Make Zines post about IZM.
Day 2 – I sent twitter message to a couple distro.
Day 3 – I organized zines in the Portland Button Works shop. My own zines are a disaster!
Day 4 – I’m not sure what zine skill I’m going to teach myself! Maybe I should see it as ‘teach yourself a new skill from a zine” So it could be a bit of a DIY challege? If that’s the case then I’m going to curl up with my copy of Advanced Brains and teach myself the rules to this role playing game that puts punks vs. Zombies! We are going to have a test play of the game in the shop in a few weeks and I’m stoked! I think I’m going to play a skate punk.
This afternoon I’m leaving for the Riverhouse to see my mom and enjoy the sun that seems to be crawling out from behind the Oregon clouds. I’ll be bringing some new zines for the challenge tomorrow: Day 5 – Check out a different type of zine than you normally read. I’ll also be bringing some of my favorite zines to re-read for the Day 6 activity. I’ll be away from the PBW shop for 2 days. TWO DAYS! I haven’t had two days off since we have opened the shop. I’m stoked!
I’m hoping to get away from the 4th of July fireworks and being able to sit in the woods, stare at the river, maybe doing some swimming and craft beer drinking.
