Pi Pancakes Are Delicious

After reading a review on Stumptown Vegans of a restaurant in Portland where you could make your own pancakes, I had to go there!  I love restaurants that are original and have a theme/specialty.  So Cortney and I went to Slappy Cakes yesterday for a very late breakfast.  It was super fun to make your own pancakes at the table.  They give you a squeeze bottle of the batter and you can make them into any shape you’d like.  Lightning bolts, hearts, squares, and initials all made  appearances on our grill. My proudest creation was definitely my Pi Pancake.  Even the waitress who sees 100’s of pancakes everyday was impressed.  This is definitely a place i’m going to bring friends and family in the future.

As fans of the clip art magazine Crap Hound by Sean Tejaratchi know, back issues are always high in demand and go for a lot on Ebay.  Thanks to Chloe Eudaly of Show & Tell Press/Reading Frenzy, issues #6 and #7 are currently in print for $12 each.  According to a post on the Reading Frenzy facebook, a reprint of Crap Hound #4 is coming out in January 2010, followed by a reprint of issue #5 in the summer and the brand new issue # 8 due in the fall/winter of 2010.

The Independent Publishing Resource Center (IPRC) is an amazing place in Portland, OR.  I’ve been a little timid to go there so unfortunately i printed ATO #1 at Kinkos.  I did gather the courage to go up there and submit it to the zine library though!  I have vowed to get a membership very soon in time to make copies of All Things Ordinary #2 there (once it’s finished).

After watching this short documentary by Nickey Robare about the IPRC i’m even more excited to become a member, start taking classes, and being productive there!

All Things Ordinary #1 is out now! This is a personal zine about the last month i spent in Buffalo, NY (where i have lived all 27 years of my life) before i moved to Portland, OR (where i’ve been living since April 2009). It mostly consists of reflections on my time in Buffalo, thoughts about what lies ahead of me in Portland (i had never visited Portland before i moved here), and things that happened to me during my last month living in Buffalo. It is 24 pages and quarter sized.

I love trading zines and would prefer that, but if you don’t want to/can’t trade it is $3.00ppd. My paypal address is derekneuland@gmail.com.

send zine trades or $3.00 well hidden cash/money order to:
