SOURGRAPES: Calling all D.I.Y. kids! 
09:00pm 04/02/2007
  Hi there,
My name is Sam. I help run a zine called SOURGRAPES ZINE. We're a local zine based in Lexington KY. We focus on teaching kids about D.I.Y. ethics, being posi, and why its important to support local art and music.
I wanted to write not only to introduce our zine to the livejournal zine world! But also to explain our predicament. You see, after a lot of pulling out hair and craziness we've decided to hire on a full-time zine team. We used to be submission based but it was pretty hard on our (then) small team.
So now we're looking for like minded zinesters and punks who support self publication, D.I.Y. ethics, posi beliefs, and who are interested in having some fun creating a great zine and keeping the underground press alive!

We're looking for:

- Columnists
- Interviewers
- Record reviewer **
- Zine reviewers **
- D.I.Y. guide writers **
- Survival guide writers **
- Bike Repair guide writers **
- Cover artists (for upcoming covers)
- Photographers
- Cartoonists (full-time strip)
- Proof readers **
- Printers
- + more!

If you think you could help us out or would like to become apart of our team, we'd love to have you! Write us at SOURGRAPESZINE@GMAIL.COM or through our myspace: http://myspace.com/sourgrapeszine
Once again we are looking for FULL TIME writers/artists (which means we will be interested in your submissions for each issue) were poor and cant pay you but we can offer free ad space, zine copies, zine reviews, and whatever Sam can knit you!

  The apartment I have been living in is quite bare, especially one of the walls in my livingroom.
I am looking for things to spice it up a little, mainly post cards.
Yes, that's right, I want postcards with a picture of your city on it! I don't care if you live one hour away by car, or 23 hours away by plane! I want postcards with pictures of your cities!
On the backs? Your favourite quote, or recipe, or reccomend some bands or movies to me. If none of those apply - a little note will do :) Also, if you want credit on my userinfo, send your username on it as well!

  Are there any kind souls here that live in the States?

As I live in Britain *shrugs* and I am absolutely obsessed with the states.

I hope to travel all of the streets when i grow up and hopefully live there.

I am currently trying to build up my own collection of states emblems,items,objects,pictures and postcards of things that resemble your State

Please would it be possible if you could tell me what State you are from and be kind enough to send me a little something in the post.

Thankyou so much
