Opposite Day: Brainscan #17 by Alex Wrekk/Rock Star with Words #2 by Korinna Irwin, 2001
Making her second one-night zine in a row, Alex does not rely on notebooks of old writing for content, like she does for her more substantial zines. Instead she shares random thoughts like "Avocado and mustard sandwiches are really good. You should try one." There are some more serious discussion points, as well. 

Korinna's side starts out, "It's a cold night in North Portland and I'm working on my third PBR. It's freezing in Alex's house: we are sitting crosslegged beside one another with typewriters in our laps, typing away. New Order's 'Blue Monday' is playing and I am feeling kind of tipsy." She really catches a moment, don't you think? She also explores how she fits into punk, DIY and feminist communities and whether or not she wants to.

The Triumph of Our Tired Eyes #2, by Amber Dearest/Cheap Toys #10 by Giz Medium, 2012


Amber does a zine residency at the Roberts Street Social Centre in Nova Scotia and tables at Sappyfest in New Brunswick, hitchhiking and getting rides from friends of friend to each location and back home to Montreal. 

"So here it is: I'm envious of dude zinesters who can just tell a story, write about tour, review a show, whatever. I look back at my journal and I see that I've written down every tme I've gotten catcalled or harassed, every time someone lifted my shirt without consent 'coz htye wanted to see my tattoos, every time I was relegated to the back of the room at a show--somehow it always comes back to bein a girl."

Zines and Copyright Issues by Jude Vachon, 2010? 
"Many zine authors really engage with copyright issues by making 

"choices

", not just passively accepting standard copyright by not making any sort of copyright statement on the zine (no copyright statement means that standard copyright law will apply, it doesn't mean that the zine is not copyrighted)."

A Zinester's Guide to Copyright, written by Not A Lawyer, Srsly, 2012
"Just remember, copyright will happen to you, unless you do something about it."
