Over in sktothemax, me, threebeats and maddethehermit are working on this project. We'll call it "the Flat Kinney" project. If you're in one of the Sleater-Kinney communities, you don't have to read this.
We initially came up with a Flat Carrie. Flat Carrie works pretty much like a Flat Stanley, or even like that gnome in Amelie [I have not seen this movie, but someone compared our project to that.] You get Flat Carrie/Corin/Janet for two weeks. You show her around your place of residence, your city, what you do, etc. She comes with a scrapbook, which you can write a note in, and enclose pictures of your adventures. You can even create friends/musical instruments/whatever for her and send them along to the next person.
We're trying to get these ladies all over the world. Flat Carrie is already on her way to the United Kingdom. So, distance is not really an issue, although the more people are in a specific area, the cheaper postage is for them. But don't worry, we've tried to keep them light. :)
If you're interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org! yes!
Like it says in the original post, the point of this zine about the final shows is to capture the S-K concert experience from ticket purchase to morning after hangover, and especially the capture the experience of the S-K fan community. This is why I would love it if you guys would photograph yourselves getting ready for the big shows, on your way to the shows, at the shows, on the way back home, etc. And don't forget to include a few paragraphs about the experience. Then either post about it at the sktothemax community, or send it to me somehow (soundoftheatlantic at gmail dot com; myspace dot com slash la_hija_justiciera).
Thank you so much in advance for your interest and participation! Can't wait to see and read about everyone's experiences!
hey, I'm new, but not new to loving S-K cause I'm part of most of the other related communities out there. Janet is rad. the end.
Now, you may have noticed that I did not mention Quasi in the above statement. This is for a very simple reason:I have never heard Quasi. I want to. A lot. But I am clueless as to what album to listen to first.
Could someone please give this poor soul some direction? "smiles"
Hi all, I'm new. Forgive the shameless self-promotion (and cross-posting), but for those who haven't seen it yet, I have a Sleater-Kinney news blog - 'tiny suns infused with sour' which is here: http://toiras.blogspot.com/
