At this exact point my focus has started to shift to my zines nearly a month after I promised they would be done. The friend’s zine, Sad Jokes No. 8 has been finished for some time, but my personal zine, the one I did for November, took a lot longer to proofread than I had originally hoped. All together that thing ended up being almost 30,000 words, which didn’t hit the 50,000 goal but was a good effort for typing for just one month. I think it’s the funniest of all my zines if not the most chaotic since there’s no theme or goal other than to write. I’ll post more about the zines later. I have to mail them to the participants before I offer them to a less than interested general public.

For a few years I made collages and then mailed them. Once in a while someone would post an image of the collage that I would then save an...
