IZM: my zines, my zine collection and split zine plans

IMG_3481webIn my alternative International Zine Month calendar, I planned to organise my zine collection, take a photo of my own zines and make plans for a split zine this weekend. It was a hot and busy weekend, so I postponed everything till today (Sunday).

As I had to do some cleaning and tidying anyway, organising and tidying my zine collection fitted well. A few days ago, I bought some extra zine folders so I could make more categories… (added “fiction”, “various” and “meta” and made subsections in the feminism and queer categories). I assume this makes only the worst zine geeks happy. 🙂

And my own zines? Here you can see a photo of (almost) all of them:

I thought and wrote about it before, but I’d like to make it a bit more concrete this month. I think I would like to make a split issue of Same Heartbeats #9 or 10, not invent a new zine. So I’m looking for someone who’d be interested in making the other half of the zine (with their own zine title). It’d be cool if it could be a somewhat feministy zine or zine-maker. Is there anyone out there interested in making a split zine with me? Mail to flapper_grrrl@yahoo.co.uk.

IMG_3493webApart from zine stuff and cleaning, my Sunday is/was filled with cutting and folding some freshly printed CD booklets of Vagina Dentata‘s first CD “no more nice girls”. Also visible in the image on the right is the flyer of On The Rag, a feminist and anti-psychiatric concert organised by singer Crustina Dentata during which Vagina Dentata will share the stage with 9 other bands of various genres. This is in September but we plan to have our CD released this month!
