Zine-tastic. Get your very own.

Big, big ups to Dr. King. I can't say anything that hasn't already been said, but I echo sentiments that recognize how far our society has come, yet acknowledge how far we have yet to go.

Chris and I spent the weekend chilling and having an all out relaxing time, something much needed. That extra day is crucial to relaxation, particularly since my trips to Minneapolis start up again this coming weekend, and I heard its like -72 there or something. And I have to read this whole book on Adam Smith between now and Friday, plus supplementary readings on Marx.

We also spent a large portion of our weekend working on a new project that we came up with because we were feeling like we wanted to make something and we were both struggling with some writer's block.

We set a goal to create and produce a zine in 24 hours. Everything had to be written and laid out in that span of time, and we copied and stapled today. Anyhow, we produced 25 copies, and we're offering them free to the first 25 people who either comment on this post or Chris's blog or e-mail me. I will mail one to you, free of charge, or give one to you next time I see you, your choice. We are not visual artists, but I like how it turned out. It's a mix of sociopolitical rants and fun stuff. Delurk and request a copy fo' free, y'all.

Hey-- that's a really neat one-day project idea. It's bringing back fond memories for me of sitting in my high school publications room, stapling and stapling and stapling copies of the literary newsletter . . .

I would like to read your zine but since I don't know you in person (yet anyway) and I don't want to make you send it to me in the mail I guess I'll have to imagine. Hehe.

V-nizzle in cali says show me the zine! Go you. I am jealous. i do love arts and crafts. i made about 5 homemade cards for holidays. then found them last week under the stack of paper in my apartment. WOOPS! I have a question for you. If I was to be a first timer tattoo recipient, any advice for forearm or upper arm?
