Yuck 'n Yum 2012 Dundee Zine Fair /// call for zines and zinesters

So, what are you up to on Saturday 24th March? If that’s nothing, then good. If you’ve already got plans, then change ‘em. Because something very big is coming to Dundee. No wait, something VERY BIG is coming to Dundee… there, that’s better. What’s coming is the Yuck ‘n Yum 2012 Dundee Zine Fair, an all day festival to celebrate the thriving scene of self publishing across Scotland and the world beyond. At Dundee’s City Chambers from 11am to 4pm we’ll have an array of tables for all you crazy zinesters to pitch up and offer the world your wares. A 3-foot wide table space can be hired for £5, and whatever type of zine you got, we wanna see it. For further info, email and your queries will be answered. Space is limited, so don’t dilly dally!

PS oh yeah the spring 2012 issue of Yuck ‘n Yum will be launched at the event too. Send us art, you know you want to.

Friday February 17 from 8pm

Baba Gogo #4: Valentine's Special with boutready2jack and ben 'jack your body' robinson

It is a night for couples, to commune under the candlelight with your loved one, find your future half or show despondency for your past liaisons to the orgasmic interplanetary melt of music box jams, acid, disco and house provided by our two guests, boutready2jack and ben 'jack your body' robinson. Not even our djs want to be alone tonight.

As for ourselves, we will travel musically the phases of enchantment, power struggle, honeymoon, resentment and self-destruction.

Romance and pandemonium for free at Drouthy's basement.

Yayoi Kusama, 1961

Extract from Yayoi Kusama - Infinity Net: The Autobiography of Yayoi Kusama:

Dinner in those days might be a handful of small, shriveled chestnuts given to me by a friend. Sometimes I would gather discarded fish heads from the fishmonger's rubbish and carry them home in my rag bag, along with the rotting outer leaves of cabbages tossed out by a greengrocer. I would boil these into soup in a ten-cent pot from the junk shop and thus fend off starvation for another day.
Sometimes, when I felt miserable, I would make my way to the top of the Empire State Building. From there the vast, dazzling panorama of New York, the citadel of capitalism, with its glittering jewels and grand, swirling drama of praise and blame, still retained something of America's golden age, the pre-Vietnam era of prosperity and abundance. Looking down from the world's greatest skyscraper, I felt that I was standing at the threshold of all worldly ambition, where truly anything was possible. My hands are empty now, but I shall fill them with everything my heart desires, right here in New York. Such longing was like a roaring fire inside me. My commitment to a revolution in art caused the blood to run hot in my veins and even made me forget my hunger.
