Back whenever their theme was "celebrating creation" i was really going bonkers on the direction that zines had gone, particularly of the Portland variety. Basically a pile of emo self-help panty waisted pencil necked bollocks with an iron-clad political correctness that chapped my hide. Whenever that was, i was encouraged to "get involved" & push the symposium in the direction i wanted it to be. I thought this was absurd at the time, but this morning, i thought it was fantastic advice & i took my first step in "becoming the change i wanted to see."
Portland Zine Symposium, eat your heart out!
