Independence Day zine cataloging report, 2013
I have the day off from work, so I'm getting started on tomorrow's cataloging a little early. What better way to celebrate freedom from tyranny than spending the day with radical, independent self-publications by girls and women?
Moar zines from Keight Bergmann

Daffodil #18 by Emily Lyon, 1999.
I am a Camera #4 by Vanessa Berry, 2001.
Jehovah's Witnesses to Vanessa, when she answers the door wearing a too-small slip: Did we wake you?
Vanessa: No, I'm just with a customer.
She didn't really say that, it's what she said she should have replied. Indeed!

Looks Yellow Tastes Red #14 split with Mary Is Reckless #6, 1997.
"After a while I realized one of the most profound affects of publishing a zine and writing to other people all over the world was that it showed me I wasn't alone, that we have similar experiences. And I thought that maybe, by being honest, about myself, mostly, so not to hurt anyone, by being honest gently sometimes, and by being reassuring, I could give back some of what I've gotten out of this, some of that reassurance, some of that empowerment. Some of that knowing that I am not the only one who feels pain and I am not the only one who feels alone and some people do car, for real." -Colette

Ella Funt #1 by Ciara Xyerra, 2013.
"i would transform from a sloppy weirdo who doesn't stop wearing her jeans even after they get holes in the crotch, who ties her hair up with newspaper rubber bands she finds in the gutter, who doesn't have a problem smoking discarded cigarettes off the sidewalk, who won't eat artichokes because 'they're just not worth the effort' into this content, balanced earth mama."
