One Bad Apple Can Spoil The Bunch

We may be losing El Cheapo. El Cheapo go bye bye.
Unless, someone would like to come forward and explain the sudden explosion of traffic between yesterday and today. You could just email me sheepishly explaining what you were doing clicking around all over the place running up the counter, so that I don't assume it was a relative and delete this whole thing. You pick. Things have been deleted elsewhere accordingly. If not, I will be forced to face my worst fear that a relative has indeed, found his or her way here.

How do I know this? I just do. So until further notice, I may not be making any new entries. Unless, they are the PG13 friendly kind and are basically about nothing much, which most of them are. Like for instance the fact that me and my g/f might be putting out a little zine. The zine we currently contribute to is taking a break, which is completely understandable. At what I presume was one of the zine's biggest distribution drop-offs, a change has occured. The shelves, that at one time held loads of gay/lesbian literature, are now jam packed with gay porn. Lovely. Just what every girl needs. The other gay book/video/coffee shop in town closed and it is my guess they are making a statement to their patrons. A statement that absolutely screams:
"Alright you bunch of fags, this is your new porn recource center. If you've never been in the back, this is what's back there and there's plenty more too. So get to renting instead of sitting around socializing and drinking coffee and watching Cher on the big screen, because we know how horny all of you are."
Losing that distribution site was likely a tough blow.

Our work on the zine was great fun while it lasted, but the editors are considering keeping an online version only. I totally respect that, but as a writer I've gotta see my stuff in print. So we may keep contributing there, but also have our own thing going.

I've been put in charge of the name. "A really cool one." When I think of zines, I don't think of cool. I think of absurb or goofy. I want it to be named after food. Like there's Rotten Tomatoes, a movie review website, and Green Bean Press. I wish I would have thought of that one. Maybe something like Rock Soup...something that just makes no sense at all.
