David Bowie’s rare cover of ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ by  Joy Division.

A chance meeting in 1983 had David Bowie, Bernard Sumner and Peter Hook chatting away over beers in the Kings Arms in Salford. “…So we were all there just having a laugh and we joked that he should come n have a jam with us, then next minute - well, it was the next day actually, but i didn’t expect he’d definitely come by - and we were in the practice rooms and we were playing Love Will Tear Us Apart and I was like, f%$k we’re playing Love Will Tear Us Apart with David Bowie singing, this is crazy. We never released it - Bowie took a recording of it, and just layered some more vocals on for fun, sent it back to me…”

"

At the start of a new semester, I walk into a math class. My teacher is blond and blue-eyed. I don’t remember his name. When he comes to mine on the roll call, he takes the requisite pause. I hold my breath.

“How do I pronounce your name?” he asks.

I say, “Just call me Tess.”

“Is that how it’s pronounced?”

I say, “No one’s ever been able to pronounce it.”

“That’s probably because they didn’t want to try,” he said. “What is your name?”

When I say my name, it feels like redemption. I have never said it this way before. Tasbeeh. He repeats it back to me several times until he’s got it. It is difficult for his American tongue. His has none of the strength, none of the force of my mother’s. But he gets it, eventually, and it sounds beautiful. I have never heard it sound so beautiful. I have never felt so deserving of a name. My name feels like a crown.

Orlan: “Listen…be it narcissistic or exhibitionist, this doesn’t really matter. To be a singer, or an actor, you have to be very exhibitionist; but no one will say that Michael Jackson is too exhibitionist. On the contrary, people will say he is extraordinary. But in the world of plastic arts, you will be judged harshly. The question is, once you have a starting point, what does it produce? Is it interesting, intelligent? Does it say something about our society or not? So, there you have it, narcissism is important, as long as one doesn’t get lost in one’s reflection.”

Marya is a rad lady who is starting
The Pamphleteer Project 
and you should help her out:

HI! MY NAME IS MARYA— I’m the founder of ABQ Zine Fest, (now in its 4th year) The Albuquerque Zine Library, and a co-founder/curator of The Tannex, a DIY performance clubhouse, in this outpost, in the high desert of New Mexico. I love my creative community, and I do a lot to support and nurture it. I’m asking for your support as I embark on a new project that expands my love for zines, self-publishing, and storytelling …
THE PAMPHLETEER PROJECT MISSION: to help diversify existing zine collections, or help establish new ones by presenting women/feminist focused, people of color influenced, gender-inclusive zines and comics to groups and collectives around the world.
YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO THE PAMPHLETEER PROJECTwill help me get to Sweden to present a pop-up zine library and free workshops at the TITWRENCH Stockholm Festival— a women’s music festival. The fest was founded in Denver by Sarah Slater in 2008. TITWRENCH Stockholm is the first satellite of the original fest. After the event, I will donate 100-200 zines to a collective in the city. 
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
YOUR GENEROUS FINANCIAL SUPPORT will:
Cover airfare to Stockholm.
Pay for simple materials to set up the zine library. 
If we surpass the goal of $2,500, this will allow me to take this pilot program and expand its reach to other collectives within the punk/zine community and beyond. Someday, I imagine this project being able to support other zinesters interested in delivering zines to groups and communities.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
WHY STOCKHOLM?
To spite our perceptions of Sweden being a utopia, The country is more diverse than the media reflects. Along with the changes to this nation comes unrest. Last year, Stockholm experienced 5 days of rioting.  On March 8th of this year, an act of fascism in the form of a knife attack occurred on the night of International Women’s Day, injuring several women taking part in a Reclaim the Night demonstration. These are acts of violence, but they are also acts of ignorance. The Pamphleteer Project supports the independent voice by presenting diversity as a means of and solidarity with local communities striving for peace through mutual acceptance. 
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
WHY ZINES?
I know zines to be a form that can open pathways to self-expression when other avenues are blocked, guide people through difficult conversations, and fuel strong political actions in communities through the power of the independent voice. Most importantly, zines can connect us to the human intimacy of storytelling.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
OTHER WAYS YOU CAN HELP:
+ Due to time constraints, and optimum ticket-buying, please donate to the project via paypal. I know, I know… your donation via credit card is also appreciated!  
+ If you can’t contribute $$ please donate ZINES that fit the criteria mentioned in the project description. Please email me at thepamphleteerproject at gmail dot com to find out where to submit your zine! 
THANK YOU!
