I write for NYU Inc, a radical zine that is written, edited and published by NYU students. Our website is pretty barren right now, since all of the content that we've recieved over the past few months is currently being organized into a print edition that's hopefully coming out a week from tomorrow. It's a pretty good time.

How are you going to produce/distribute it? That seems like quite the operation.

Yeah.... I haven't quite figured that part out yet. Its going to take time for me to finish the comics and junk so I have some time to figure the mixtape thing. I think my dad has a tape to tape recording stereo, and you can speed up the tape so it takes less time to do it. I'll just spend a day or two recording it. I don't suspect more than like... 50 people wanting my zine. I figure I'll charge... $3? that sounds about right to me. depending on how many pages i do.hmmmm

Most of the good indie distributors would pick up something good, should you feel inclined to taking in that direction. You should talk to some local press and stores in your town though.

Ah!

Perhaps I'll get one later. I'd buy a tape, but I haven't a working tape deck.

I'm a fan of 'Mix Tape Segue' and 'america?' They're both microcosm. And 'Ortolan' which a few former coworkers did art for.

I went to a zine expo-dealio in san francisco a couple weeks ago. It was pretty awesome, but I'm broke so I didn't get to buy any of the awesome stuff there. I got a free vegan cookie, though. Yum.

based on your last.fm i think you'd be into the stuff. im not sure how much you know about Power Electronics, but i saw you liked Whitehouse. check out White Heterosexuals:

Yeah, and my last.fm even is pretty inaccurate.

And yeah, I do like that.
