Canzine



Our participation in Canzine was surprisingly successful, despite our preparation the night before* having allowed us less than two hours of sleep. We sold five anthologies of Deep Madder Monthly and 80 individual issues were taken for free. We expected to sell no more than two anthologies. As you can see, we composed a makeshift table arrangement to present our wares, including a new poster logo thing, subscription form, and pricing sheet, including “celebrity” testimony to our credibility (funny quotations of people we admire commenting on our zine). At one point we were visited by someone from Torontoist, who subsequently mentioned us in this article on said web log. We definitely intend to attend Canzine henceforth. Thank you for joining us, everyone (give or take). It was fun.
*During which we made a new Deep Madder Radio episode.
