Same Heartbeats is by far the longest running zine I ever did. For #10, I’d like to do something special. But what is a good way to celebrate a zine birthday?
- Extra-mega-super issue?
The plan is to make Same Heartbeats #10 a bigger issue: more pages + a mini-zine included: “All about Chainsaw Bunny” + maybe a (double-sided) poster
- Discounts and zine packs?
Certainly! I plan to reprint Same Heartbeats #1-3, but as they are all old school cut & paste, I have to see if that still works…
- More zine-themed buttons?
Why didn’t I design any “same heartbeats” buttons before? 🙂 Can’t wait to make them…
- Zine anthology book?
There are several zine books out there, compiling (parts of) several issues of zines such as Shotgun Seamstress, Doris and Mend My Dress. I’d love to publish a zine book too, but I think it’s a little bit early still and it’s probably not so easy to find a publisher…
- Zine event?
For example a release party, mini zine/craft fair, zine workshop or zine reading / spoken word event. Sounds like fun, but I could use some help to organise it! Fairs and workshops are always good ways to promote zines and DIY culture and I love the idea of dancing to songs by the Copy Scams all night.
- Lost Luna demo?
Finally! I’m selecting songs as we speak and might make/record some new songs. Songs go back to when I only had access to a 4-track tape recorder, before digital recording tools such as Audacity. Listen to some recordings on myspace.
