We have the dates for the 11th annual Portland Zine Symposium. It will be held at Refuge on August 6-7, 2011. More details soon! Please spread the word!

What would you like to see at this year's event?

I'm sure some of you have seen this before. Pepsi gives a bunch of projects that people vote on money every month. Tonawanda Skate Park is trying to get one of the $50,000 funding to help get the project off the ground. If you have 30 seconds, please go here http://www.refresheverything.com/tonawandaskatepark and vote for it. It's super easy, you can use facebook connect to login. You can vote once a day, every day in June so please vote as often as you can. I'd really appreciate it.

more info on the skate park can be found here: http://tonawandaskatepark.com/

Aug. 4th, 2009 - 12:26 am - All Things Ordinary #1 out now!

All Things Ordinary #1 is out now! This is a personal zine about the last month i spent in Buffalo, NY (where i have lived all 27 years of my life) before i moved to Portland, OR (where i've been living for the past 4 months). It mostly consists of reflections on my time in Buffalo, thoughts about what lies ahead of me in Portland (i had never visited Portland before i moved here), and things that happened to me during my last month living in Buffalo. It is 24 pages and quarter sized.

  here are a couple sample pagesCollapse )

I love trading zines and would prefer that, but if you don't want to/can't trade it is $3.00ppd. My paypal address is derekneuland@gmail.com.

send zine trades or $3.00 well hidden cash/money order to:

  • 20:15 just got to Powell's, barely standing room left. i found a spot behind the last row of chairs. 45 minutes until he starts #
  • 20:30 twitpic.com/730n2 - part of the crowd waiting patiently #
  • 20:35 i hope David Sedaris repels from the ceiling, or there's a trap door behind the podium and he rises from the basement #
  • 20:45 i didn't realize the age demographics Mr. Sedaris brings out. The median age here is about 35 #
  • 20:52 if you read the book of the author you're waiting to see, are you considered "that guy"? #

  • 14:54 as if i didn't already really want an iphone, the iphone 3GS sounds amazing #
  • 15:36 @hellolevi what's your point? iphone > itouch #
  • 16:07 @hellolevi but iphone eliminates carrying around 3 devices (camera,phone,mp3 player) and has wifi #
  • 18:12 @hellolevi why are you, an iphone user, trying to tell me to never get an iphone? ridiculous! #
