On 23rd of July 2020, the official Robert Anton Wilson website tweeted this link to a digital zine called New Trajectories. It was created by the Only Maybe Arts Lab and released on Maybe Day Anything made by members of the Arts Lab family is going to be worth your time. And this definitely is. Its made for The Others by The Others.
A thought…maybe Liverpool Arts Lab could make a zine for 2021? And perhaps contributors to the zine could include our friends from the Cerne To CERN pilgrimage? And, like a pilgrimage, perhaps everyone starts together and travels together to some destination? Perhaps from the beginning of 2021 through to its end? Individual windows on our worlds as we live, collectively and apart (in true discordian style) through an ongoing pandemic. Inspired by the Only Maybe Arts Lab, maybe we could create something for The Other Others?
So a call went out to our creative network and 32 people responded, each prepared to commit to creating 12 new works over 12 months. The original concept was for a download-only zine. This was to save unnecessary trips to the post office during lockdown. Also, its of the times and make the zine available to anyone anywhere. However, some of The Others like good, old-fashioned print zines. And one of the pilgrims, known as The Walker, kindly offered to deal with physical orders. So its him you have to thank for the limited edition of zines that you can purchase using the link below.
Here then is the first edition of Bodge Zine, lovingly typeset by Slim Smith. Subsequent editions will appear on the 23rd of each month for 12 months.
