I thought the Zine Fair at the MCA would be a Beatnik, Dada, cool affair. I went with an open heart... and a shit load of zines: hand stitched and printed at home. It all started really well with Ziners swapping and chatting. Six thousand people were supposed to come through. So for a three day event that meant 2 thousand per day. I imagined, as always, a wonderful and miraculous day where each person had thirty dollars worth of gold coins in their pockets which they would spend in a veritable frenzy of financial bliss on the zines. An economy based on 2000 x 30 seemed hopeful.

Sure I am a digital immigrant. And sure I like it here but some times I am tired and the night is dark.

My real live cat was called Smith. I guess he was Black Smith coz he was black.
He had a short and magical life, it must have been his ninth life because he did not come back as a flesh and blood cat, he came back as a hand puppet who is still with me.
I have always loved the spirits which inhabit toys and dolls. I am not sure what part of my brain would light up in neuro imaging when I am communing with these spirits but I don't think Richard Dawkins would be too keen on my manifestations.
