ZINE TALK


making zines, originally uploaded by Tukru Loves You.

i went to the printers yesterday and spent three hours & £69 there. afterwards i went to see this art thing by the library that some people i sort of sort of know had organized. i slow danced with a lady in a shipping container to 'warrick avenue' by duffy, which was cool and awkward at the same time, and sat around on the grass until half five. my bag of zines was really fucking heavy, seriously. i went to sainsburys with it and bought more food than i needed to, and struggled to get home in time for doctor who cos i kept having to stop and put the goddamn bag down.

today i've put together a pile of zines = 20 x #3 and 40 x #6. and i'm half way through 40 copies of #4. i needed a fucking break. i didn't actually print #10 yet cos i haven't quite finished a certain article i guess and i'm waiting for my special commissioned cover. (my fault for not asking til bloody last minute, like i always do..)

i have also been listening to a fuckload of beyonce this weekend. especially this one. why the hell was that not a single in the uk? that grrl's hella fierce.

can't wait for new zines!
also, YES beyonce! i hope the link was to "video phone" (it didn't work, said sony had pulled the vid from youtube cuz of copyrights, but i'm guessing that's the one since the image you posted is from it)- i am obsessed with both that song & its' video.
