Notes from mr. ed

      - the permanent grumpy zone or tremors she's coming at ya -

Intent is a fair dinkum attempt at engaging the reader/spectator to think
about issues of media ownership, control and autonomy.

DIY culture, is refreshing, fun and pretty kewl. But little consideration
is given to how 'the wretched renegades from the mainstream crud' survive.??

80% of zine publishes go out of business after 3 issues, why? complacency!
- not supporting independent product allows some big dick publisher to come
along steal our ideas/pathways, and sell it back to 'the totality' as media

Am I grumpy? slightly.

*hugs* geekgirl.
