New-to-me vintage purse. Cuz my bud Erin validated my need for a new one!

Also: making gypsy soup, drinking red wine, chilling out, planning my super 8 film and mini-collage zine…

Not on the like list: avoiding grant writing and cleaning my studio.

Feeling ascetic…

I mean, I’m not ascetic, I just feel that way…making films, writing grants, playing guitar, cooking dinner, working during the day. Focusing.

Of course, this makes me consider dressing the part…

So long, and thanks for all the fish

My bud Kathleen and I gave a wee goodbye letter to the webosphere today, in time for Lickety Split’s new monthly dance party fundraiser. A bit sad, even though this is something we decided on long ago and have been working with the new team on for a while. Here is is in full:

It’s been a long time since we rock n’ rolled, hasn’t it? Well, it’s time again for bulging pants and sticky panties! As you must have heard, Lickety Split smut zine is launching a new monthly dance party to offset printing costs for the next issue. Cum on out and party in support of the magazine you lust after! Check out the party details right here: http://licketysplitzine.blogspot.com/2009/10/lickety-split-presents-smut-on-dance.html

Also, just so’s you know: Lickety Split smut zine has been taking time this year to freshen up and make some much-needed changes. Along with firming up our fundraising strategies, the Lickety team is transitioning by incorporating new collaborators (Sarah, Lara, Mitra and more!). You can contact Sarah directly at sarah@licketysplitzine.com. A couple of names you might recognize and some you will get to know better in the coming months! Some of us other Licketys (Amber and Kathleen) are moving on to heavy pet with some new projects, but we will still be out and about working in smaller ways to make Lickety Split the best indie porn mag it can be! We thought it would be nice to let you know that we’ve appreciated all the sweaty, turned pages over the years and that the new team is hotly pursuing the next issue of “guilt free and fun smut for everyone!” (2008 Expozine awards). Thanks for all the incredible support over the years, from the bottoms of our apple bottoms.
Stick around for more filthy fun and support Lickety Split!

Love,

Amber & Kathleen”
