tori mini-zine  
i was thinking about the mini zine i was going to make (mini as in 1/8th size, probably around 32 pages, so about half the size of my current zines), and this morning on the way to work i thought about turning it into a tori-themed/tribute mini zine (oh, i guess it would be a fanzine really, wouldn't it?) sort of like personal stories where her music has played a role, lyrics that mean a lot to me & why, etcetc. so,

- would anyone actually be interested in reading this if i wrote it? (i know not everyone likes fanzines, maybe it would just be boring for other people to read...)

&- i wouldn't charge for it as it's a small zine, but would it be rude to charge for postage only? because it costs nearly $ 2.00 to mail letters overseas and um, that adds up pretty quick. so i would probably distribute it though trades or cost of postage, but i'm not sure if that sounds rude. please do tell me if it does (i won't be offended lol).

if you have any thoughts, let me know? it was just a passing idea but something i could probably do something with, if people might want to read it :)

i think it could be really cute. i know taryn hip of girl swirl did a fanzine dedicated to gwen stefani. i've never seen it but apparently it's really good.
also, i don't think it's rude to charge for postage only. but you could also just distribute it as part of the next edition of winterspark. either way is fine, really.

i would like to read it. :) i'll happily send you two dollars, too. just tell me how to go about it.

yes! do it! if you need submissions of any kind, i will provide you with them. tori is seriously my hero.

*raises hand* Tori is always interesting!
And I think you should charge for it.

Asking for postage costs doesn't sound rude at all, hon.

And I would LOVE to read it. :D

yes, do it! i don't see anything wrong with charging or taking trades for it, either... so asking for postage is certainly in the realm of fair and just. :)

i'm going to pick up the new album tomorrow at mid-night!!!! *squeels* an oportunity has presented itself for me to go to new york on thurs for her Q & A with Ann Powers about the new book. i think it's too late for me to take the days off from work tho. my review is supposedly tomorrow morning, i should probably see how that goes first, lol!

I think it's a great idea because
a). Soooo many women I know are Tori Amos fans
b) They all seem like they'd be into reading about how her music touched another one of her fans. Tori fans are unique like that.
Normally I'd poo poo all the the idea of an actual fanzine but in this case I think it's a great idea.
I'm starting work on a per-zine. At the rate I'm going it should be out by spring 2012.
    scarlet's walkkisstheviolets on February 21st, 2005 04:44 am (UTC)
oooh yayy! i'd love to read your perzine when it's done. jess's influence is rubbing off *beams*

i've been writing some of the zine in between being bored at work; i'm not really sure if people would want to actually read it or care though lol.

{thankyou for your words}

I'd read it! I don't know too much of her music but what I do know, I love.
+ it is not rude to charge for postage. People should understand in the first place, especially zinesters!
    scarlet's walkkisstheviolets on February 21st, 2005 11:13 pm (UTC)
if you ever want to hear more of her music hon, let me know. i have a ton of bootlegs (concert recordings) & b-sides, etc... i'd be more than happy to burn you some cds.
Ivana Stabivanastab on February 22nd, 2005 05:42 am (UTC)
Oh yeah thanks!! :)
Anything you'd like me to burn for you? We should do a swap.
    scarlet's walkkisstheviolets on February 22nd, 2005 12:51 pm (UTC)
a swap would be fun :) what do you have?
Ivana Stabivanastab on February 23rd, 2005 04:37 am (UTC)
I can email you my cd list. What's your email?

I think passing ideas are sometimes the best.

jade, i would read that zine so much!
and if you want submissions or need help or anything, i'm up for it.

i can't afford her new album (out todayy!); i need to channel my tori love into something soonish!

i would read it! and i don't think it's rude to charge for postage, you gotta do what you gotta do & zinesters understand that.

have you noticed how many good zines are popping up lately? i've ordered 5 new zines in the last week.
    scarlet's walkkisstheviolets on February 21st, 2005 10:29 pm (UTC)
i so badly want to order some new zines, but i'm so broke lol. recommend me some of THE best ones? i have to be choosey, i wish i could read them all though! le sigh. zines are wonderful.
jessicasea__secret on February 23rd, 2005 03:43 pm (UTC)
i bet the new junk/food is going to be great! i also am excited about "hard knox" by sage because her "tattooed memoirs" was so good.

I think asking for postage is ok, especially if you are shipping overseas. I would love to read it since I am a huge Tori fan and would even be up for submitting something.
