You know, when you take the time to go to the printer and chill there for like an hour, taking a good 10 minutes to look at every printout you've made - there's something so gratifying about that. But when you're in a situation like I'm in, where you finish your day-job shift at 6 p.m. and the printer closes at 7 p.m. and by the time you get there, all the employees don't give a flying fuck about you or your ghetto-ass publication, and you rush through your print job and then rush home and try to squeeze in the time to collate and staple the zine in between laundry and dish washing, you don't have the time to really savor the moment... And that makes me a saaaaaad panda. But this is what my perzine is for. And issue two features a story about my routine and my lack of a personal life and how I need to rush through whatever is left of my day and hopefully manage some quality time with myself. Here are the pics as promised.

Being busy with boring stuff all week, I was busying myself with fun stuff all weekend, and managed to complete the long overdue second issue of The PMS Perzine!
I had quite a blast, yet again. I have a couple extra things to photocopy and paste, but they're rather minor things which will take no more than 48 seconds to complete.
It has the 6-C's recipe as promised, a piece about hammers and why they so totally rock, an all over the place and all over the page thingy, and more jolly beans...
Below is a pic of the cover. More photos will come as the photocopying of the full issue will be done which should be sometime this week.

I'm currently working two jobs but still push myself to keep zinestering because it's virtually become necessary for my emotional survival. And after completing the DIY issue of Fallopian Falafel, I've decided to devote most of my free time (barely 3 hours a day) to the PMS zine because I've fallen hopelessly in love with the style.
And so! I finally began working on Issue 2. As promised, I will include the 6-C's recipe.
I will also try different designs and layouts, try to include more drawings and I am even considering making a couple of short comics of sorts.
Keep in mind that the PMS perzine is not an "ideology"-oriented zine. There may be some words of wisdom as I am usually inclined to such writing, intended or otherwise. But it's mostly supposed to be odd, surreal, obscure, twisted and childish (like Children of the Corn style), and purely for my own enjoyment. Again, very selfish, very self-involved, totally up my own ass... and a recipe for you to cut and keep :-)
PMS production continues...
