Start Select Reset Zine (SSRZ) is a physical newsletter posted via snail mail 4 times a year.
As the old certainties of Web2 creator capitalism crumble around us the ‘Support my email newsletter for just £5 a month and in return you’ll receive … more email‘ model seems like part of the problem not a solution.
Your subscription keeps unique content flowing from Permanently Moved and this blog, fostering real connection in a post Web2 world.
Includes an essay about *real* things.
“A return to the real is the re-integration of natural daily rhythms (where possible) into one’s life. Do you know what the moon is doing tonight? The day begins when the dawn breaks the night, not when a clock strikes midnight. The sun sets, the day ends and the night begins.”
People Over Events
The interior of the issue contains my most ambitious linocut print yet. Fan art of the character Zuno from J David Osbornes cyberpunk series: God’s Fare No Better!
The Sega Club – Mid 90s
I have been making and creating zines for myself and my friends since I was about 10 years old.
My first ever zine was made during the summer holidays around 94/95. My friend Ben and I had a typewriter, pens, and the abuse of his dads workplace risograph machine. (An important lesson about how zines get made learnt at an early age!).
It ran for 3 issues.
On The Rag – Early 00’s
I was a regular contributor to the RIOT GRRL / feminist punk zine – On The Rag.
Published sporadically in Margate for several years. Next time I’m at my parents I’ll dig out some more issues and take photos.
Geekzine – Early 00s
I need to dig out some old issues and photograph them.
Geekzine was the semi-regular fanzine from the Margate based Geekscene DIY collective.
Poptastic Fantastic – Mid 00s
Absolute hipster bait. I don’t have any issues of this at all despite running for 20 something issues 🙁
If you picked up any copies of this zine in Dalston/Shoreditch/Nottingham/Leeds between 05-07 and still have one tucked away, please send me documentation! 🙏
