I am not a healthy person. I am pretty much stressed 100% of the time, so I get ALL the colds, flu viruses, etc, etc. So you can imagine my surprise (and my wondering if I’ve been booted to an alternate universe) over the past two weeks with both Wanderer and Boggin being sick and me having nary a sniffle. Not only that, I was at Wing Nut’s house along with Kickass, and they both have the flu, too! Yikes.
*knock on wood*
The poor guys are in a rough way today, so I’m stepping up to play carer for our strange little trio, which involves a lot of tissues and running errands. Please bear with me, as I’m a bit all over the place. (And anxious. So much driving!)
*Don’t Call Me Cupcake 5 is done. It’s another stranger one, but perzines are like that sometimes. They can be good for working things out.
*I also have a brand new zine called DAFUQ You Say? (Wanderer really wanted to name it that. Hehe.) It’s a mini-zine that’s all quotes I’ve overheard and written down with no context.
*I am done with the interview questions from Zine Nation. I’ll let you know when the interview goes up.
*Dear Anonymous 5, DCMC 5, and DAFUQ aren’t listed on Etsy yet, but they will be soon.
*As it’s a new month, I’ll be updating the Zine Review Index as well as a few other pages.
*I’m working on a post series all about the basics of becoming a zinemaker. If you have any questions, let me know!
*I’m also working on a happy mail post for later today. This wouldn’t usually make it on the list, but things are crazy enough around here that I might need the reminder…
*I have my little can for coins and notes in the effort to save up for my badge machine. I’m getting nervous that it’s not a good investment… but sometimes one must leap, yes?
*I’m also dreaming of the possibilities of videos, podcasts, so on and so forth. If you have a preference for a specific kind of media (YouTube, Vimeo, podcasting on the wide variety of sites, Snapchatting, something) feel free to start up a chat about it. Tell me who/where your favourites are.
*I’ve started dreaming about typewriters, but I’m not sure if the reality will be as awesome as the dream due to upkeep…
