In the Distro Consideration section
...get an idea of what my tastes are before just sending your stuff off willy nilly. i have no interest in poetry or music zines & things i find offenseive include, but are not limited to: sexism, racism, homophobia, fatphobia/sizism, transphobia, classism, ableism, etc. you get the idea. also, if you charge for ad space or call your zine a "magazine" i probably won't be interested. if you send a cover letter & press clippings with consideration copies, i probably won't be interested...

Rag Hag Catalog #1 by Tanya Goldberg, 2001
Note to other zine librarians and researchers, because this confused me--Rag Hag is the separate distro catalog, which Tanya/Skuld started after issue seven of Hag Rag (started in 1996) got too big.

if you wanna skip to the good parts, there's an index in the back.
Did she know a librarian would read this one day and that indexes are sometimes my favorite part of any publication?
As she drives from Oklahoma to California:
i've got a car full of christmas presents, and a rifle in the trunk, wrapped in my great-grandma's quilt.
Rory refers to OK as the Midwest. Is OK the Midwest? Wikipedia says it is according to some people, but not according to the US Census. She calls soda "pop," so maybe it really is the Midwest. Do people say "pop" in the south?
Thoughts on Jack Kerouac if he were traveling Route 66 (now I40) today:
i wonder if his writing would be on a laptop, worrying about where he can get some free wi-fi. i bet kerouac would be a total emo kid, listening to some death cab on his ipod while he took the Greyhound.
can you imagine it, kerouac posting to his LJ? what would his icon be?
