Just now in the thick of processing a box of donations from the presumably wonderful Sarah Rose, of Tazewell’s Favorite Eccentric and other zines. Let me be the first to tell you: this box is full of gems. We now finally have stacks copies (hell yes that means they’ll circulate) of a bunch of stuff, and archival copies of way, way more, including an issue of Girl Germs I have never even seen before (and I am getting on in years). I’ll post updates to the archives as they’re processed, but for now, check out what’s new to the stacks:

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. Márcio is also recording material for the second chapter of this documentary, possibly to be released at the end of this year. If you would like to be involved, contact Márcio Sno at marciosno@hotmail.com and check out the blog http://marciosno.blogspot.com   -- Jordan A.

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?) -- Jordan A.
