I want to try something a little different, just to see how people like it. I’ve made four printable mini-zines of a few of my recent non-time sensitive essays; all you have to do is print them out, cut and fold them as illustrated in the diagram below, and leave them on bus seats, train station benches, laundromat tables, and wherever else around the neighborhood people might pick one up and read it. I’m experimenting with different ways of throwing ideas which challenge establishment narratives over the echo chamber walls, and I figure getting literature off of the internet and into the real world might be a cool one to try.
All four zines are black and white and print on a single side of one sheet of paper. First pick one you like from these PDFs (if you want to look at the online essays in their original format before choosing one, “Babies” is here, “Humans” is here, “Hollywood” is here, and “Reality” is here):
Then you print out one and fold and cut it like this:
Try it out if you feel so inclined and let me know what you think. If I get positive feedback on this, I’ll make more.
Internet censorship is getting pretty bad, so best way to keep seeing the stuff I publish is to get on the mailing list for my website, so you’ll get an email notification for everything I publish. My articles and podcasts are entirely reader and listener-funded, so if you enjoyed this piece please consider sharing it around, liking me on Facebook, following my antics on Twitter, checking out my podcast, throwing some money into my hat on Patreon or Paypal, or buying my book Woke: A Field Guide for Utopia Preppers.
