Updates! The populace of Göteborg is now dispersed with zines. I sold out of almost all of the zines I brought. The show was great and the Crew Scumrask folks are very nice indeed! It was the first time I had the distro at a concert too. I talked with lots of folks about zines, and many thanks to Martin, a zine-fanatic partner-in-crime and author of Wide Myofacial Release and the Amazing Maze Zine (soon to be in the distro!)
Next month Raumschiff will have a table at the Heavy Days in Doomtown fest in Copenhagen, Denmark 2-5 May. AND later in the month, I’ll be doing a zine workshop at the Action, Mond und Stern festival in the Black Forest of southern germany, 23-26 May.
I also have a new zine that I finished last week: Diary of a Female Orgasm. size A7, € -,80 transparent cover over pink paper (a neat little trick I picked up from Lilla Feigenblatt’s zine By the time you read this I’ll be gone.) A tiny zine made of journal entries on what it feels like.
RD will have a table at the Klubb Cut The Crap #3 women’s day show in Göteborg, Sweden. 9th of March 2013, it’s time to make feminism a threat again!
to make a long story short: the zinefest was awesome.
THE FRUITS OF YOUR LABOR ARE TOTALLY WORTH IT. our afterparty was bru-tal, thanks subversiv. thank you SFE for hosting us. thank you people of the universe for creating wonderful publications and bringing them to Berlin on this weekend. People came on AIRPLANES! Almost 50 table-holders, dude! Above is a picture of one of them, looking all fine and dandy and proud. Oh wait a minute- that’s me! With my armlos sockmonkey and sock-em puppet.
See that cardboard wall next to me? It’s actually a radio studio. Funkfabrik B made a live radio show on Sunday at the fest. Our zinefest song opens up, then with interviews of workshop holders, live music, and I read from my #12 zine around 40:00.
Hey! The zine fest is next week!!! http://www.zinefestberlin.com
It’s 3-4 November @ the SFE in the Meringhof. There are 46 tables/ projects signed up from all over the map. 10+ workshops and discussions. I’m doing a workshop on Distros (how to start one/ how to get your zine out there). New zines for the distro: Plans Plans Plans Plans by Biene, and Sound Record #1 by Nyx. It’s the euro-printed version of this new american zine by a friend of mine (one of the dream team members who started High Five in Boston, MA) Also I have a Parts & Crafts 2012 comp. zine, I made it with kids this summer at the invention-camp in Somerville MA.
TONIGHT, ZINEFEST WILL BE ON THE RADIO. Yeah, the radio! Live interview with us the organizers @ 7pm, via the FunkFabrik B: http://funkfabrik-b.de/ It will be archived so you can search for it later too.
Microcosm Publishing is a totally sweet distro on the west coast of the USA. They have a super super awesome collection of zines and books, on topics such as: radical history, personal tales, health, gender, bikes, relationships, zombies, and DIY guides on just about everything you’d ever want to do or make. and now there is a new addition: Infecticitis#11: Selfish has been accepted for distribution! This is my first zine to be at Microcosm. Kinda exciting, you know?
More exciting: the second-annual ZINE FEST BERLIN 2012 now has a venue and a date: 3-4 November, at the SFE in the Mehringhof. Get ready…
