SOURGRAPES: A zine of substance
Hi there,
My name is Sam. I help run a zine called SOURGRAPES ZINE. We're a local zine based in Lexington KY. We focus on teaching kids about D.I.Y. ethics, being posi, and why its important to support local art and music.
I wanted to write not only to introduce our zine to the livejournal zine world! But also to explain our predicament. You see, after a lot of pulling out hair and craziness we've decided to hire on a full-time zine team. We used to be submission based but it was pretty hard on our (then) small team.
So now we're looking for like minded zinesters and punks who support self publication, D.I.Y. ethics, posi beliefs, and who are interested in having some fun creating a great zine and keeping the underground press alive!

We're looking for:

- Columnists
- Interviewers
- Record reviewer **
- Zine reviewers **
- D.I.Y. guide writers **
- Survival guide writers **
- Bike Repair guide writers **
- Cover artists (for upcoming covers)
- Photographers
- Cartoonists (full-time strip)
- Proof readers **
- Printers
- + more!

If you think you could help us out or would like to become apart of our team, we'd love to have you! Write us at SOURGRAPESZINE@GMAIL.COM or through our myspace: http://myspace.com/sourgrapeszine
Once again we are looking for FULL TIME writers/artists (which means we will be interested in your submissions for each issue) were poor and cant pay you but we can offer free ad space, zine copies, zine reviews, and whatever Sam can knit you!

Cannibal Holocaust
An anthropologist travels to the jungles of South American to find out what happened to a documentary film crew that disappeared nearly a year earlier while filming a documentary about reputed cannibal tribes. (Ruggero Deodato, 1980, 98m)

November 11,12 and 18,19

Cannibal Ferox
Anthropologists take a trip to the jungles of Colombia to study native cannibals. Instead, they find a band of drug dealers, using the natives to harvest the cocoa leaf. After awhile, the natives are tired of being tortured slaves, and turn on their masters, as well as the anthropologists, thus filling the screen with gruesome splatter!

just a little something i had to let out
i know who has this community on their friends list.

and you better read this and comment you will be shunned.

this is the long lost daughter of valparaiso, Indiana, amy ashley allen. even though, these days, i am rarely seen around those parts, i've noticed something that disturbs me:
northwest indiana has an ever expanding lack of ambition which seems to have grow more and more every time i return. it seems like there was a time when people valued or at least supported each others creative efforts. i guess there have been a few shows, and thats great. But wouldn't it be cool to be known or know someone's name by their artwork/poetry/short stories/opinions/rants/ideas or interests before you've even met them?
or, at the very least, doesn't anyone have something important to say?
does anyone think or create anymore?
or are people too zoned out or stuck up to care about other people's creative efforts?

1.take some interest in yourselves and do something.

2.then, if we all aren't too busy zoning out at a T.V. screen, or wasting hours with soon forgotten words over countless cups of coffee and cigarettes, go over to tony's house and give him the fruit of your labors.

who cares if you don't know him well or you haven't spoken in a while; do it anyway.
if you don't know where he lives than email him for an address and get yourself a fucking stamp. the man can't do this alone.


i don't want to believe that people from the region are just white-bred photocopies in various sub-groups defined by styles of clothes or popular music.

now, i got that out
i'm sorry for yelling
i've been a little stressed out and i'm hopped up on study drugs
how is everyone doing?
