available this weekend at indietracks, I'm sure I'll have a fair few left after so I'll figure out some sort of mail order arrangement then
Brillo! I'm looking forward to it!

wooo! can't wait to get my copy of this! the cover looks ace!

the lady at the printers took my copy of the first issue and manhandled it like a bitch until it fell apart. and then went "oh look, it's fallen apart". luckily i had 2 copies so i didn't end up killing her in a rage.

also, since you're responsible for about 90% of my laughs since i got up, i'm extra looking forward to it.

I'm definitely buying one. Where at indietracks will they be on sale? Somewhere really obvious like that big tent full of stuff or something?

waaah???

I lucked on a really helpful printer up here, I just had to save it as a PDF in page order, emailed it to them and they did the job in a morning

I guess this is dependent on whether you put the fanzine together on a computer or by hand... but I guess you could do it by hand and then scan it... hmm... anyway I'm talking to myself here rather than saying 'YOU MUST DO IT LIKE THIS!!!' but if you're listening/looking in... that's how I did it

can't wait to see the new 'hospitalized...'

We put half the fanzine together in our local Wetherspoons, last night, to the sound of an old man being sick in the bogs.

You can sell them at Come Out 2Nite if you want. My plan is to approach people while they're dancing and force them to buy it.

yeah, i ditched that aggressive bitch and found a new printer with a hot tattooed guy who is probably THE NICEST PERSON IN THE WORLD. and they're cheaper!

he's really cute because he calls them booklets instead of zines.

that joke went over my head.

he wears thick rimmed glasses sometimes and even though he always dresses smartly i know he's a hardcore punk underneath it all.

oh, and in case you were wondering why i brought it in in the first place, it was to show them that i wanted the zine to be in the same awesome format as yours.

excited to read the pocketbooks and horowitz stuff, amongst others!
