community

Hey, we went to a protest.  We were opposing evictions and rent in general, really.  It was good to show up.  I flew my Community is Possible sign. But the cops were acting bad.  They were in one spot, and a tow truck was with them too.  Then one circled around behind us, so we… Read More »

Yesterday was Ming’s birthday party.  He’s a birthday person!  I’d had around three hours of sleep and was emotional and having a hard time doing anything.

free zines

zine irony I used to give away my zines only, for years, and people would be skeptical. Or people would think the zines had no worth, if there was no dollar amount–they must be low quality, so I should’t bother.
