Get ready for the grand opening of PEOPS, a gallery show featuring "a collection of portraits & stories of people by Fly. Each page contains a new face surrounded by words - for the most part the words are a story that the person tells about themselves or about something they experienced or about something they heard..." at the Lower East Side Girl's Club on Thursday November 10th, 6-8pm. Check out the PEOPS website for more information about the show!
There will be some fabulous readers and amazing art happening that night, so go to their Facebook event and press that Attending button right away!
You know that feeling you get on your birthday when you're seven years old and there's a giant wrapped gift box waiting for you when you wake up? That sweet mixture of excitement, nervousness, and curiosity about what amazing things you're going to find inside? That's how I felt when I opened this donation from A.j. Michel (whose website you can access by clicking her name!). There are 77 new zines waiting to enter our lovely collection… one might say we have "zines for days" here at the Barnard Library. Here are the highlights:
Come round, all ye children, to hear the tales of yesteryear... this short documentary, Last Century Zinesters, shows us what it was like to create zines in the mid-80s and 90s in Brazil through interviews and letter correspondences with many zinesters of that time. Grab some popcorn and sit yourself down by your newfangled computer machine to watch the story unfold after the jump!
Ready for a break from reading that stats textbook? The Punks is Hippies blog scans DIY punk fanzines in and puts them up for your perusal. They specialize in "out of print, hard to find, and in some cases unique, rare or exceedingly expensive" zines that we would otherwise not have access too - so delve in and get lost in the amazingness that is Punks is Hippies!
Márcio Sno, Brazilian documentary film maker recently launched a new documentary, "Last Century Zinesters," in January this year. Check it out on Vimeo at http://vimeo.com/22319370!
This documentary is aimed at showcasing Brazilian zine-making before the advent of computers and the internet. "Last Century Zinesters" includes interviews with 21 zine creators that worked in the days of typewriters and cut and paste. You can expect to enjoy the '80s and '90s flashbacks that this film provides, and get an in-depth look at the people behind the pages.
First: the background. I am a blogger for Refuse the Silence, an organization headed by the great Morgane Richardson and the people that hosted this event. And, because I am a huge nerd, I got giddy at the idea of seeing some of my favorite bloggers speak at this event about something I really care about: race in the feminist movement.
(The picture is of me and Latoya Peterson (editor of Racialicious) after the event! Don't we look chilled out?)
