This being in reference to this PIH post from way back in 2008.
This raises a few points that while expected from day one, miraculaously have not surfaced until now, so here's a few points to bear in mind, for contributors and visitors alike.
1. PUNKSISHIPPIES is an online archive of international DIY punk & hardcore fanzines, new and old.
2. It is obviously a non-commercial project and as such it is published collectively by several contributors and readers. To get involved email "administrator" - see email contact in sidebar.
3. The basics of PIH are broadly:
A. To help provide a resource to help people read old zines without having to buy zines on eBay for muchos $$$.
B. To stop the onslaught of the many idiotic punk analogies and histories by providing access to fanzines (the primary sources of punk history if you like).
C. To show a generation brought up in a world where fanzines are no longer that fanzines are INTEGRIAL to DIY underground music; and perhaps somehow help influence people to continue to write zines.
D. Above all, showing gratitude for all the great fanzines read and hopefully inspire further reading of zines.
4. Fanzines are provided as wholes, scanned by by contibutors or readers for publishing at PIH, or else found on the internet and reposted here in hope it will help bring attention to more people.
5. Perhaps naively, it is assumed that fanzines are in the PUBLIC DOMAIN, more so older ones than newer ones, and obviously more relating to zines that were printed in few copies and less so those zines that have future "famous" authors that have made it in the "alternative" world and who have published fanzine anthologies and coffe table books based on their earlier DIY stuff.
6. The current format is that of a blogspot, for good and bad. Positives: It is easy and quick to use both for contributors and visitors. Negatives: There are a million blogs about, and blogs are usually quite idiotic.
7. There are longer-term plans for PIH, namely to find a permanent online presence that retains ease of use for both contributors and readers, but which would not have to rely on fast-host upload sites and template design of a blogspot. The only thing stopping this from happening right now is volunteer time and technical knowhow.
If you don't want your zine at PIH then please do get in touch. If on the other hand you want your zine at PIH then please do get in touch. Drop a comment, use the message board, or if you have to (ha ha ha) write directly to administrator (email in sidebar).
Respectfully bluuuurgh, enjoy!
