j bearhat ‘cast it from thee’ & patreon announcement
hi i’m doing things again & i’m announcing two (2) of them
firstly, i’m currently working on a longer zine titled ‘cast it from thee’, which is mostly memoiric but might be a little editorial as well. it’s going to be about the memories of my middle school & high school years, the ones i can remember anyway. it mostly focuses on religion, fathers, masculinity, and loss. specifically & flippantly, it’s about how the process of losing all those things have fucked me up because i couldn’t let go. vaguely, it’s about learning to lose the things that have become harmful for you, about knowing what can be reclaimed and what can be cut off. it’s about learning to live without what you’re terrified to lose.
at least how it stands, for now. these things tend to change as i write them over and over.
in order to help keep me focused on writing (this is the second thing) I’m also goingto be producing smaller, shorter, most likely more dark humor driven zines, which i’ll be posting up about on here as well (currently producing one called ‘gay apathy’).
& to help supplement income, & to keep me on task, i’ve also set up a patreon page where people can donate as lil as $1 a pop for “mini-zines” (probably gonna aim for 2-3 a month). not only will you get a few cool pdfs (and sometimes prints too) every month, but I also am going to be using this as a place to post a lot of one-off bits that i don’t particularly feel like turning into full pieces but are fun exercises (these will be ‘free’ to patrons). there’s more info at the page below,
