Who and What We Are

Xerography Debt is a review zine for zine readers by zine writers (and readers). It is a hybrid of review zine and personal zine (the ancestor to many blogs). The paper version has been around since 1999. This blog thing is are attempt to bridge the gap between Web 2.0 and Paper 1.0. Print is not dead, but it is becoming more pixelated.

In My Mailbox 8-15-09

Well, technically this is IMM 8-10 or something, as I wandered to the POB days ago and am just getting around to writing about my treasures. This is due to incompetence and laziness. Which surprises no one.

Anyways:

- Breakfast #5 ($3, Breakfast, c/o Vincent Voelz, 575 12th Ave #3, San Francisco, CA 94118; vvoelz@gmail.com, www.breakfastzine.com) I'd given up hope on Breakfast; I mean, #4 came out like in 1978 or something. Yet here is issue #5! With article titles like "A Field Guide to South American Donuts" and "The First Annual Portland Pie-Off", how can resist this zine? You cannot.

- The Ken Chronicles #12 ($2, Ken Bausert, 2140 Erma Drive, East Meadow, NY 11554-1120; passscribe@aol.com; http://thekenbausertchronicles.blogspot.com) Another episode in the continuing adventures of former Passions editor Ken. I'm a sucker for home repair/renovation stories, but there's plenty more slice-o-life stuff in this neat little zine.

And that was it, aside from sweaty dollar bills and other stuff. I need to get to the POB more often, methinks.
