Sorry for being MIA! It was not intentional I swear it. To be honest, getting on the computer recently has been a bit of a drag because… Netflix is literally sucking up all the data speed on the internet lately. Real talk, as if the constant loading pinwheel of death was not a constant reminder of how behind the whole country is in this tech-dependant age, you get this:
Wanna know what this is doing? Nothing! It’s literally NOT loading. Yes, Netflix has indeed killed the loading icon and is now in a permanent state of refresh button bashing CPR life support.
And it will drive you insane! (not Netflix, I love you. Australia’s slow internet, I hate you)
But I digress.
I am resisting the urge to spend more money than necessary at the moment on clothing to share the second passion in my life – zines.
I realised I haven’t shared my collection here but over the years, I have hoarded what I like to describe as a nice “musing” anthology of particular writings or photo essays on what I so happen to reflect on over a regular basis – or just because I like the publication.
I have a terrible habit of showing favouritism and judge books by their cover so there’s a build up of art book types, but I’ve seen some foodie ones like this ode to Pie zine which I definitely would get into. I’m also in the mood for a zine full of just bad puns or awkward responses to daily situations. Perhaps illustrated with a cute caricature of Brick Tamland from Anchorman – I’d buy that.
Here’s a few gem reads from the pile:
In recent news, this weekend sees the return of the MCA Zine Fair at Circular Quay so if you’re in the area definitely stop by for some inspo, creative mind mingling and maybe a freebie decal with your new read.
I also got a Kanye Loves Kanye card and “I Am A God” from Daniel Malik. A great zine of quotes and inspirational sayings from the mouth of god himself.
The MCA Zine Fair’s final day is tomorrow so be sure to check it out!
Until Next Time!
