With this postie lock out my excitement about acquiring new zines has become non existent. I don't even feel like working on projects, because i can't send them out when i'm done. What makes me feel even worse is that the posties are about to be legislated back to work. and that fucking sucks. Learn more about it, before you start hating on the unions just because your father does. visit

Some good news! GRCGED is getting new computers which means that soon the archive will be cataloged which means titles can be taken out! wooot woot! Sometime in Sept you will be able to take zines out of the library! geeze its almost been a year.

We are moved! with the help of a few loverly humans (thanks Barry and Tibbles) we moved in to GRCGED last week and we haven't had the chance to get cataloged in the lending system at GRCGED. Feel free to browse the zine collection while visiting us but unfortunately we cannot lend them externally yet.
