WE THINK WE KNOW WHAT WE'RE DOING/BUT THAT DON'T MEAN A THING

Jen May and Devon's got a blog where they do the thing, like in their zine, facing pages, most every day, make art about how they are living. Click to enlarge
Squished "It's Showtime!" bucket is how I am living.
Eleven hours of sleep is how I am living.
Itemizing 2008 is how I am living.

I miss making a fanzine. Thought last night about "art thats not for sale", and do I do anything that is not for sale in some way. Internet free and art not for sale are really not the same in my mind. Thought about how I never used to get paid to write, and when I did it was like a treat and now that I make a living at it--though less and less the living it was--I don't do it for free except for fanzines, except the fanzine I was doing it free for is gone. No one does a fanzine anymore and maybe that is good enough reason to do one. Cyndi was right.
