Ok. we’re having some issues with the big cartel. I apologize that some of you made payments up to two weeks ago and that these haven’t been shipped. Life has been extremely busy and I planned on being able to send these out tomorrow, however bigcartel is being wonky right now so if you ordered one off the bigcartel site, just leave your address in my inbox. Hopefully this junk fixes itself. Also if you haven’t, order a zine! Still have a bunch left over. Laura and I just started working on the second issue so be on the look out for that one! I wanna get these off my damn hands.

Also I’ll have whatever leftovers at the show Saturday if you want one. Just bring 2$. Gotta pay for the subway yakno.
