Jess and I are working on a short lecture about KC zines that will be presented this upcoming Friday, October 10 at 7 PM inside the InterUrban ArtHouse in Overland Park, KS. We will tentatively address the following points:
- A micro snapshot of present and past zines created within our KC community.
- How KC zines serve as sacrifices of labor, a means of authenticity, and operate outside of the normalized capitalized exchange system.
- What’s going on in KC zine culture with pop up libraries, advocacy and outreach, community building, and cultural zine events.
- Where we are at in our zine advocacy and archival efforts.
This is part of Alt Lecture Series #9 and features artist Claire Krueger who will talk about the phenomenology of dreams: including physicality, consciousness, and goal-oriented dreaming.
Q:do you have to live in Kansas/America to submit something for the zine?
Not at all! I think a story from elsewhere would contribute nicely to the zine.
Q:is there a way to report something on tumblr?? because i've just seen a horrific video of child abuse and I think it should be taken down immediately!!
The best way to report something to tumblr staff is to email them. If you believe the content is a violation of the tumblr content policy, the instructions in the “Help” section of the site are as follows:
Where can I report spam, illegal content or other content policy violations?
"…If taking those steps doesn’t help, please send us the URL [email address: firstname.lastname@example.org] of the blog that is concerning you along with the details of your concern.”
I hope this helps. The Admins here at the Emergency blog have no power to take this content down ourselves, sorry.
Just a reminder on how to report those nude web site followers that post photos and videos of what looks to be underage kids.
Looking for artwork, essays, or true stories about supernatural encounters for a new zine about strange but true experiences with the unknown. Tell us your ghost stories, paranormal encounters, or unexplained experiences. We are more interested in non-chemically induced stories that occurred within a sober-minded state of being. Please send your artwork, poetry, short stories, and essays to Stephanie and Adam by emailing email@example.com.
The Deadline for this zine is December 31, 2014. All contributors will get a free copy of the zine and may be invited to participate in related projects or performances that expand upon the zine publication.
Today and Saturday, you can visit Pioneer’s Press in Kansas City at the Unplaza art fair. A good chance to talk zines and get some new material.
Hey Kansas City! We’re tabling Pioneers Press today and Sunday at the Unplaza Art Fair!
Above you can find some of the things we’ll have with us.
If you can’t make it you can also find them here http://pioneerspress.com/
The meritless lawsuit brought against us by Microcosm Publishing is going to trial next month and we need your help!
The trial is happening in Portland and we are desperately trying to get funds together to get our family and our lawyer out to Oregon so we can defend ourselves in court. (To give you an indication of how dire our situation is, we received a “final notice” from the IRS today warning us that they are going to levy our assets because we haven’t been able to pay our quarterly taxes.)
As we’ve said before, we aren’t looking for donations, but if we’ve got a book or zine you’ve been eyeing, we could really use your support right now. To sweeten the deal for you, we’re doing CONTEST MANIA for the rest of the month.
Everyone who orders from Pioneers Press this month will get entered into a drawing to win one of four $40 Pioneers Press shopping sprees! We’ll announce one winner every Sunday afternoon.
AND if you reblog this here plea, we’ll enter you into a contest to win our new titles including Big Diamond, Simple Steps to a Life Less Shitty, and the Good Luck Not Dying book!
We’re kind of freaking out right now about getting through the next two months (both financially and emotionally). We didn’t start this fight, but we’re damn sure gonna see it through to the end. Any help, hugs, signal boosts, etc would be much appreciated. We definitely can’t do this alone.
Huge thanks for your ongoing support!
xoxo, Jessie Duke and Pioneers Press
