Anyone else read their zine? It's my favorite "underground" zine on living home-less(not homeless). I'm here asking if anyone else has ever ordered the zine & know how fast they send mail out to you..just wondering. I usually get the zine from microcosm publishing, along with the collected books. The people and the editors are awesome!

I love Dwelling Portably! Found my first copy in Portland and have collected all the others since. It's one of my favourite things to give folks who are always dreamin' of breakin' off from the obligation-boxed-in-life.

Microcosm is rad.

For this winter in Alaska, I just ordered a bunch of zines from them. I went for the $20 deal:

Fun Pack!: Personal zines
Would you like an envelope bursting full of assorted zines, patches, stickers, buttons, even posters or postcards? Well, $20 gets you a mixed bag of the theme that you select! Whether you want to settle in for a weekend with zines or want a sampler without knowing where to start, we promise this will be seriously worthwhile. PLUS, if you order Priority Shipping, we'll probably fill up the envelope with extra free stuff!!

But, really, they give you a whole lot more than an envelope's worth. They sent me a huge box PACKED full of delicious zines, books, and postcards likely worth some $40-60 - enough to keep me going for hours and hours. And they didn't just send me crap or only $20 worth. Good, solid reading. I highly recommend it if you've got the bucks to spare and want some words fer yer brain.

My favourite D.P is probably the second one -- the 80s issue...

The latest one just came in the mail.
Amused and grateful.

Thanks for mentioning it in the forum.

This is what came in the zine-pack. A few of these I bought on my own in addition to the pack.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $37.77 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $37.77 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $37.77 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
