I like zines. I miss zines. I got a zine.
Also happy to see this outcome:
Well done, @…

Looking straight down on an 8 inch by 5½ inch printed black-and-white magazine. The title is “Multipage” and the stylized distressed headline is “We fucked up headings”. A sticker sheet is partly visible. One sticker is an old 3½ floppy disk with “Multipage final” written on it, with cross-outs of other words.

New Post: Letters to dead people (and one person who faked their own death) zine

loved everything about the debut issue of record time, packed with deep & unexpected excavations (plastic bertrand knockoffs, the droll yankees label, anti-commie fink harvey matusow, fave bargain bin LPs, etc.) *except* the way its front cover evokes mid-century zines for wax cylinder enthusiasts & makes me realize some of this music is even older than wax cylinders were in the '60s. still, way fun!

It was my first time building a zine, first time giving this workshop, and firs…

Picture of my hand holding the first print of the "Pocket Portal Power Play" zine. I'm standing outside, on a random sidewalk in Montréal, walking back from the print store where I feverishly sliced and stapled 20 zines for participants.

weekend read-in: the debut issue of dummy, dedicated to the art & oral history of pee wee's playhouse. absolutely inspiring to hear how paul reubens ran the show, making space for gary panter & other weirdo artists to essentially rewrite/redraw the folk iconography of children's television for a new generation. consider myself blessed for being the exact right age when it debuted. excited for dummy #2, too, about air pirates funnies.
