After the longest gestation in all Inky history (flesh and blood model
excepting), I am pleased to announce that the new issue of The East
Village Inky, #43 is at the printer! The only reason it isn't being
stapled up here at HQ is Jim, the manager, and only staff member
capable of dealing with my erratic margins was stuck out on Long Island
or New Jersey or wherever the hell he lives, and the rest of the gang
took a page from the NYC Board of Ed's book and called it a snow day
after a couple of hours on the job, not that my granny cart could've
handled those drifts anyway. Now we must all wait til Monday. Possibly
But once the cloning process is out of the way, there's some major
impetus to get this sucker stapled up and out, in that it adds a bit
more justification for my fast approaching One-City World Tour! That's
right, I booked a flight to Portland, Oregon to witness the alchemical
miracle of the hot mess I've been lobbing at my friends at Microcosm
Publishing's way into The Zinester's Guide to NYC, a low budget,
participatory guidebook for creative types and those stuck traveling
with them, scheduled for a November 2010 release. (That's why this Inky
is so tardy, in case you haven't guessed) To celebrate, and shore up
the idea that this is indeed a business trip worthy of a Schedule C,
I'll be swinging by small but mighty Reading Frenzy, a major resource
for zinely love, and long-time supporter of The East Village Inky. I'll
read aloud (IÕm taking requests now), sign whatever you put in front of
me, distribute complimentary heinie tattoos, answer your questions
about NYC, and squeeze you for your favorite Portland recs. As always,
should you have the misfortune to be living elsewhere a week from
today, I'd be much obliged if you'd send your area kin and kindred in

Ayun's One-City World Tour!
921 SW Oak St.
(If you'll be coming to Portland, and are itching to buy a certain book
or back ish, give a holler by Tuesday, and I"ll make sure to throw some
reserves in the ol' steamer trunk.
Speaking of your coordinates, please join us in saluting East Village
Inky subscriber Rachel, who even though she could not recall which last
name subscription is under, remembered to notify the ghost of
Ex-Circulation Manager Jambo when she moved from scenic Italy to sunny
Tucson, Arizona, thus saving the operation 44cents and a bit of hassle!
Furthermore, if you have, through no fault of your own, let your
subscription lapse, now would be the perfect time to renew it online.
And just to juice up the numbers, from now until 12:01am on March 1 you
can use this link to bring your non-subscribing friends into the fold.
Just type the code "Savage Conversion" in that little box where you can
write a note to the vendor...don't forget to include any personal
messages you'd like me to lay on the lucky recipients. Such as Happy
Year of the Tiger.
Happy Year of the Tiger!
