hhahahaha who is this?
is this a prank?
or a creep?
i actually need a coffee so bad but
thats in like 2 minutes!!!!!!!
and im not as wild n spontaneous as id like to think.
so i have something interesting to read before i go to bed or when i’m on the bus eheheh.
but in all seriousness i love zines, i’ve been reading punk/diy/feminist/queer zines since i was like 13 and i’ve learnt so much about the world thru them and from people ive never met in real life or would hav never had those specific conversations with. i mean theres now wayyyy more mediums for people to share their writtings/stories/art/stuff etc etc etc i.e. tumblr and le internet without having to hav certain money or publishers censorship but i really like how articles n pictures etc in zines are presented, especially when hand made and photocopied and how you can have 100% full control of the layout, and i think zines are still so important cause they are tangible and exist in an irl way that the internet doesnt. and like always zines should continue being made cause it is people creating their own culture and having the freedom to voice their feelings, share info they know, express themselves, create the written media they want to exist and for others to be able to read or view that content and have fun or learn from it or find something that they agree with.
not all of them, some are with guns, mostly homemade guns though. hmmm i think the one that hurt the most was either my toes or the ring on my pinky.
i’m like a well seasoned cast iron, no soap.
got here a few days ago and will be here for the next 3 months
cause its really high quality and will support such a large file and is easy to use and seems like a pretty posi website and not hella commercial. a few people hav asked me to put it on youtube as vimeo doesnt work for them but i just want it to exist from one original source and be good quality so unfortunately you’ll just have to watch it on a different computer or go to a screening.
i was semi hesitant to reply to this. i mean, dumpstering rules and i love to talk about it and share my experiences!!!! but my reasons for being hesitant were that i dont wanna expose secrets about my or my friends lifestyles, and i know its given a status in some scenes as being “cool” and “bad ass” and “really punk” and i dont wanna be another person whos like “dumpstering is so easy and really anarchist, man” and sorta insinuating that those who do it are cooler then those who dont. but at the end of the day those who wanna dumpster will and those who dont wont, it aint pretty. it literally is just getting in a dumpster/bin and looking around and taking things. things to maybe be aware of and try to find out/think about when going to/trying to find good dumpsters are: is it any good and worth going back to? is it filled with bugs? has toxic products been poured over everything? how often is the bin emptied? has other people you know said things about it? what time does the store close or what time they throw stuff out? how do the staff/security respond to dumpster divers? can you only go at night or have to be super quiet? is the dumpster locked? if you go there and get caught/make a mess/take every single thing is it gonna ruin it for others that go there?
id say the last question is the most important to think about. when other people hav trashed the dumpster, or been caught or tried to fight security or gratified the entire bin or done things to expose it, it pisses me off!! dont ruin it for other people!!!
when in a dumpster and looking for food i also try and think about the following: whats the expiry date? whats the current temperature of the food? does it look off or totally gross or bruised? how much do i realistically need (you do not need 20 breadrolls!) ? will i eat it? is the packaging in tact?
sometimes i do get things that hav been opened or are loose or past their use by but i try n be smart about it, like i wont eat off cream or meat in a packet where the plastic has puffed up and i dont get drinks that hav been opened.
id say that im a really sucessful dumpster but thats just cause im hella dedicated and at times will go to dumpsters daily and i talk to other people about their experiences with specific bins alot and will organise dumpster trips with friends (like driving around n going to 5+ bins a night) and also cause i hella dig around and get covered in gross stuff and not give up. i think its one of those things where you get out how much you put into it. good luck!!!
not always but lately i’m more happy then i may hav ever been before
i got them especially made a few years ago from a street stall in san francisco. i’m not sure where thou??? near a train station???
