When you're read as many riot frrrl zines as Jenna and I have, you start to recognize band names even if you've never heard any of their music. One that came up recently was Bunnygrunt. After laughing a little bit and looking at gifs of bunnies, I decided to do some research into the band.

Here's another NYC Feminist Zine Fest photo by Ayelet Pearl, since I'm still cataloging the zines I bought there. This is co-founder and co-organizer Elvis's table. Like some of our favorite people, they might be a little potty-mouthed in their challenge of the patriarchy!

Remember the promise and betrayal of the #AmtrakResidency and its heinous terms of service? (Note: they've taken the original ToS page down, but there's a post about it on PBS.) Well, your pals at the Barnard Zine Library and Archives are offering an alternative residency--on the F-Train and the Staten Island Ferry. We won't pay for your Metrocard, but we also won't demand to own your stuff! We will provide a goody bag to the first ten participants and encourage others to get snacks, materials and pee breaks sponsored. Mailing copies of your zines to the MTA & the DoT after is optional, but encouraged. Photo from the Fly Away Zine Mobile blog
