HOW DO YOU PRINT THE PAPER?

by |

me and mickey went to go pick up the new issue of Mothers News from the printer the other day, and she snapped this cool candid photo of where someone else’s truck backed into the railing, and i’m counting twendos like la di da.

people always ask me how do we print the paper? like i’m going to sit down and screenprint 2000 copies of an 8 page paper every month AND i’m going to print it in black? smarten up you dummy! we take our idea, we get some money together, we give the money to a place, and our concept becomes a thing. much respect to craftspeople if that’s how you want to spend your time, i just want to cover the earth, that’s where i’m coming from. i used to be DIY, now i’m DIFM: Do It For Me.

Top Ten Again / OUT THERE

by |


big up and god bless to GREG HARVESTER who put Mothers News in his top ten 2011, again in Tobi Vail’s blog:

9. The publications Nuts!, Mother’s News, Maximum Rock N Roll, Myopic Waiste, Shotgun Seamstress and Broke Ass. All of these help me to realize that I need to stop making excuses and put out a zine in 2012.

greg is in the excellent bands NEON PISS and BLACK RAINBOW, and runs the excellent “let’s digitize our old punk tapes and talk about them” blog REMOTE OUTPOSTS.

thanks greg!!!!!!!!

ALSO to MN reader Hannah Horovitz, who found the batman TWICE (maybe 3 times?), putting them at the head of the Finders Of The Batman Club, AND put the pape in their top ten ALSO in TV’s blog!

I am always so stoked to get the new issue of mother news in the mail and find batman and feel so relieved that this is out there.

haha IT’S OUT THERE!

UPDATE: I just realized that Kate Schapira found the batman at least 3 times already! I mean, it’s not a competition, but those are the facts.
