zine completion (Issue 1)
Not to self-promote/spam, but Issue. 1 of Ctrl-ZINE is out for anyone looking to read Smol Web-y stuff.
Our humble Webmaster m15o is in this Issue, fun stuff therein! :)
it's at ctrl-c.club/~loghead/ctrl-zine.html
hey that was pretty cool, i enjoyed the short story at the end
looking forward to helping out with the next issue!
Yep, photos will be good for Issue.2 :)
April 10 is the "deadline" for that issue, but I am going to try to complete it before then. 4-5 entries, 24(ish) pages.
I printed it. I folded it. I stitched it together. It was very small. And I read it. Well done. J.
The PDF-only/fold-forward format is definitely the way to go for a zine. Some encourage me to make a storefront, offering pre-folded zines through snail mail (USPS), but I haven't (yet) as there would be shipping costs. BUT, it makes sense because some (likely most) don't have access to a printer. It may be a thing one day.
Thanks for reading it, and printing/folding :) Great fun to put it together!
Wow, some zine memories at a Barnes & Noble in the days of my youth just came flooding back. Don't remember any titles (or whether I was told what it means to be a man..), but I can definitely picture the section.
my intro to zines was at Borders in South County mall in 2004, when I saw Blacklisted 411 on an "inide publications" shelf.
The zine is non=-existent now, but it was an on/off venture by so and so Blackstone (no first name comes to mind) and it ran for a few volumes. Then gone. Then a few more volumes. And it totaled 4 or 5 volumes.
A LOT of kick ass stuff in that zine. From phone phreaking, to war dialing, to modifying the LAN line utility box outside one's home, to the pattern used on a vending machine to "code" the soda selection buttons to alter the price of the soda.
I e-mailed Blackstone to see what the "blue box" was on the desk in one of the cover's photos, and he said "it's a blue box". Haha. Something used for war dialing.
Finding an old issue on archive.com is fun.
Ctrl-ZINE is the friendly, goofy "reincarnation" of Blacklisted 411, I like to think. (kinda)
So happy for this to be out! I'm now already looking forward to the next issue :D
