oh one more thing

we have also acquired another new member for the cult, er, clubhouse.


welcome ben blum! an amazing scientist/fiction writer who will not only be featured in fakeorange 2.0 (!!!), but assist in the editing/filtering process to ensure that this zine is made up of the best possible work

i cant explain how happy i am about the people we've been meeting. i never would have thought our group would expand so quickly and organically. each new person brings a unique perspective and skill set to the table..if this keeps happening i just might die of excitement.

clubhouse: under construction

so many exciting things have been happening over at the fakeorange clubhouse! alfie finally moved in for real. we've constructed a cardboard room for her in the basement (where i keep the rest of the children i've collected). i hope she is happy there because she is obviously never allowed to leave.

we reorganized the studio and have pooled all of our art supplies. we now have a great space for staying up all night listening to pop punk and painting/making models.

we also have a good spot to start working on fakeorange v 2.0! which many of you have still not submitted WRITING for. the formats we're thinking of are awesome and will probably blow your minds. you should submit.



ALSO! we have posted ads on craigslist looking for an intern, but sadly no one has replied. (i just dont get it) here is the ad- if you are interested in being our intern, please let us know!! ! ! !!

conversations at the clubhouse: Degas




alfie: i fucking hate pastels. i wanna smash them with a hammer. but i always end up using them
alison: thats because you're secretly in love with degas.
alfie: he's stalking me
alison: he's haunting you? having sex with you in your sleep? (in degas' alleged voice) 'you like that little dancer?'
alfie: (in degas' alleged voice) 'pull up that fucking tutu you bitch!'

a tribute to zachary german

Auf Wiedersehen

the germans who have been staying with us at the fakeorange clubhouse are leaving after 6 glorious weeks. they arrived in the midst of the zine release craziness, and luckily were not scared off.

at last friday's art party jeremy behrhorst made these parting gifts for them:




we'll miss you julia and mira!
