Just had a very sweet convo with our facilities manager who said, “When I took this job, I figured it would feel like getting punched in the face seven times a day. It’s really more like ten, but I still like it,” which is a p accurate assessment of working here as far as I can tell.

best zine distro of all time // RIP // always in my heart
Like so many, I credit Pander not just with my interest in reading/making zines, but also for my friendships with so many amazing and wonderful people. If it wasn’t for the Pander message board, I would have missed out on some tremendous friendships. I still miss some of the regular old daily life threads on that board - what are you wearing today, what are you reading, what are you eating. So many little details of life to be shared and explored!
"To love a swamp, however, is to love what is muted and marginal, what exists in the shadows, what shoulders its way out of mud and scurries along the damp edges of what is most commonly praised. And sometimes its invisibility is a blessing. Swamps and bogs are places of transition and wild growth, breeding grounds, experimental labs where organisms and ideas have the luxury of being out of the spotlight, where the imagination can mutate and mate, send tendrils into and out of the water."
