Cataloging update 12/30/13

This is what I look like when I'm cataloging zines from home, as I was on December 30.

The Bakery by Christina, 1997

Housewife Turned Assassin #s 2 & 4 by Dani and Sisi, 1994 & 1996

"I write this simply to state my observations and feelings and to create understanding but not to devalue the riot grrrl movement. My experiences in r. g. Los Angeles beginning in 1993 through mid-1994 were wonderful and disappointing. At the meetings I met a great deal of sincere and intelligent girls and wimmin but I also met some ignorant, self-centered ones." --Sisi

Juryrig by Carrie and Bean, late 1994 or later?

"see, i don't know who you are. but i'm assuming you're white. that's fucked, especially since i'm not white, just like you--i hope. a white-boy (or girl) erased me from punk, and when i closed my eyes and saw a sea of white faces looking at my black & white pages i too excluded you, and me, a second time."

Mamasita #4 by Bianca Ortiz, 1996?

Marks in Time: the Very Early Go-Gos by Eden and Iraya, 1992.

"I remembered feeling relieved 'cause I'd finally met another person real into punk and underground music and the Go Go's as well."

"In a space where i am the only woman who is not white i feel alienated, the whole time thinking, 'Do they realize this? Why am i the only person of color in the room?' And in a space where i am surrounded by chicanas y chicanos i do feel comfortable but i am always observing how light my skin is and how obvious it is that i am half white in terms of skin, appearance, background and experience."

Mija by Bianca Ortiz, 1996?
