zines cataloging

I spent a few hours on Saturday tabling at Pete's Mini Zine Fest, so I'm doing just half a day of zine cataloging. Sad, but true!

Today's International Zine Month activity is "Make some envelopes or postcards for postal week," hence this photo from the Zines Maps, and Letters workshop Marissa Falco gave for the Barnard Zine Club. 

A lot of my zine librarian and zine making homies are at the American Librarian Association Annual Conference in Las Vegas this weekend. I am not, partially because, Ugh: Las Vegas, but I am jealous that they all get to hang out together at the Zine Pavilion

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!

Since a lot of the zines cataloged today are from the Feminist Zine Fest again, here's a photo of the other organizers and me.

Since the zines added this week were acquired at the Feminist Zine Fest at Barnard, here's a photo of the Barnard Zine Club's FZF table:

Today in obscure holidays: Pick Strawberries Day!

A result of a an image search on < punk rock strawberry shortcake >, this photo is of One-Eyed Doll, a band "Described as Strawberry Shortcake meets Gwar and Valentine's Day meets Halloween with the visual impact of Japanese Anime."

According to the Holiday Insights calendar, April 21st is Kindergarten Day

From a post by homeschooling teacher Heather Woodie

April 7 is National No Housework Day. I observe that holiday pretty much every day that I'm not expecting a houseguest. Except laundry. I do that sometimes.
