In the past, there was a web site, Look at that Fucking Boiler (LATFB). We always dreamed of capturing the Boiler in its pure, heartland glory. We finally did this past summer thanks to Jake of Harry and Jake Speak Politely.
Here’s a new project we just thought of the other day: The Litter Project.
We go on a lot of walks and one consistent thing we come into contact with is litter. This is a documentation of that exposure. Everything in this post was picked up on the evening of August 20th, 2008.
When we are done scanning the litter, we recycle what we can and then throw away the rest. Isn’t consumption grand?
Here’s an update in their own words:
the second edition has been distributed; be sure pick up your copy at Village Coffeehouse, Vienna, or Von’s. sorry for the long delay!
also, it’s never a bad time to submit something. so if you have any work, send it our way.
Be sure to check out edition 2!
The Media Collective would like to welcome frankly, the first addition to our new Printed category of media. You can download a PDF of the first edition from the spring of 2007 here.
All submissions for the next issue are due by November 3rd, 2007. If you have anything you would like to contribute, you can e-mail them at frankly.zine[a]gmail.com. The next edition is due to be printed some time late November or early December.
A little copy about the publication:
(frankly) is a zine that was put together so that we, as a community, might be exposed to fellow artists, writers, thinkers, et cetera. whether you love or hate, agree or disagree, appreciate or disparage: tell us; we want to know. we can’t do anything without your ideas, suggestions, comments, & submissions.
keep sending us material: artwork, photography, stories, editorials, essays, poetry, & anything else.
