GET TO KNOW YOUR ZINESTER: MC Sunflower Jones
Describe your work in two sentences or less
Deirdree: I was recently called the “Lisa Frank on Crystal Meth” in regards to zines…I’ll go with that. <3
Steven: We like handcrafted, perfectly imperfect zines made with scissors & glue sticks & our exquisitely humble photocopier – Ms. MC Sunflower Jones…aka “Smokey Smoker Dance A Roo the Queen of Ice Skating & Patron Saint of Mentholated Cigarellos To-Go” – we’d kill for her. & we have.
What are you working on for the Fest this year?
We just printed our spectacularly & incredibly, horrifically & spontaneously grandiose comp zine that we’re totes the most proud of & the cherubs sing when you call it by name, Gag Me With A… #10, & it will be premiering to the zine-ee-rific public at large come February 16th. Got a new totally ‘80s Pocket Reader on Adam Ant (spoiler alert: his tears water-damage the last page!), & some new witchy micro zines that’ll leave you casting spells & showing off your dark sensibilities, as well…but the mammoth prize fighting magnum opus, c’est What’s Your Damage? – Mental Illness & Shit!, that one has had us pulling our hair out for so many months now –we’re about as bald as Britney Spears – gritting our teeth to the tune of “Yankee Doodle Dandy”…& it may or may not get finished.
Hopefully, we can get one of the two volumes & a few of the six companion micro zines completed in time…but if we don’t, we’ll still have the brand new Gag Moi to show off & a table littered with pleasing new shit, old shit, uppers, downers, all arounders…all kinds of sugary sweet, cut & pasted gel-capped bonbons!
