This is all very exciting!
due to this thread I started ordering zines and I love them!
Thank you all very much for your work!
Here’s a mirrored copy of the photo for any of you who are curious about the contents* but can’t read backward script.

I started making small zines containing risograph prints of sketches from my visual programming practice. The first one was focused on explorations of sine and cosine as wave forming patterns offset on a grid generator.
ps. I’ve got a risograph for sale in Minneapolis if anyone is looking – pm for more info… (got access to another institutionally maintained riso through my job!)
I would LOVE to do a risograph cover for the Erratic Manifest. I must learn more.
There are a bunch of riso printers out there these days, some more accessible than others for individual / service based printing needs.
I’m sure there are some in your local area (DC if your profile is correct) that you could reach out too. Look at the local graphic design / art scene and ask around. They are more prevalent that you might think!
I told @bobbcorr I had a theory about the structure of his zines… and he told me:
“Life is all about unfolding mysteries that return you to simple truths.”
^ Actually that is the structure. Really! Wonderful.
Which to read first…
Small But Mighty comes first.
That’s a lovely trio if I do say so myself. Sort of bummed my print copy of waveform hasn’t come yet…but the price is right!
DID just take delivery of the latest little beauty by @bobbcorr can’t wait to enjoy its secrets!
I took @bobbcorr’s advice and read his manifest first, and it was thoroughly enjoyable! I’ll need to send Bob a gracious word to ensure I continue to receive this little pamphlet of wisdom and prose.
I received my copy of Waveform almost a month ago - you may want to send them a quick email to see if there was an issue mailing it, though, as the mailing label literally fell off my copy when I pulled it from the mailbox, and a few people on reddit had the same complaint, so I’d hate to find out yours was lost in the mail forever…
Twenty characters of “done”!
Waverform arrived yesterday. Thank you!
Got a personal response from Ellison and he is sending me one with a tracking number! What a guy!

Deft Electronica just got a nice shout-out from @darwingrosse on the latest episode of his podcast.
Oh yay! I discovered Darwin’s podcast when he placed his order. It is pretty darn excellent. Thanks for letting me know!
This is my new book of drum machine patterns. I designed it to be travel-friendly companion to my own portable music-making devices, so it’s only 4x6" in size. It’s just under 70 pages and includes a few hundred patterns that I have collected over the years. You can download a PDF of the book or order nice printed copy for $10 at shittyrecording.studio. More pictures there too.
