I have been hunting around for Audio zines do get for the zine library and I found Bunny Ears Distro on bandcamp. Billy at Bunny Ears posts recordings of folks reading from their zines. So no actual audio zines I can order for the library, but folks can stream or download zine readings for listening pleasure!

While inputting some new zines into the library catalog I decided to make a few new sections. In the media box you will find, DIY released DVDs, audio zines, and spoken word recordings, there isn't much in there right now but we are hoping to fill that box up with good stuff soon. The next two new boxes come from the Lit zine section. I decided that of the four boxes labeled lit zines I could be a little more specific. So I picked out all the poetry zines and all the fiction and short story (story time) zines and gave them their own boxes. Enjoy!

Here are a few things that we picked up at the kazoo print fest, there where a few zinesters that sat among the print makers and a few print makers that had made zines, but wayyyy out of my price range. Just beautiful work though. Static Zine from Toronto was there, Stubbs Press was there in full force and even Keenan a returned from MTL with his Pro Can Comix!

So I left work early to hop a bus to the OCAD Zine Fair. I was worried that it wouldn't be worth the time, I was proved wrong. The Event was small with just under 20 tables and many of those tables held crafts and prints. I set up in a dark hallway next to an other unfortunate couple of zinesters. The enthusiasm for the zine was defiantly in the air. Even as I set up the Two tables I signed up for ( look mum! and Arrow Archive) I had a interested party purchase a stack of photocopied zines from me and from then on folks ventured down our dimly lit hall way and got excited about what we had to distro. Not many folks knew we have a zine library here in Guelph and I helped get the wred out! We may soon have some visitors from Toronto.
Here is a little gem I picked up at the fair.... hand sceen printed.... ooohh la la
