When did you launch your zine? What inspired you to do so?
While in my senior year of high school, a friend and I won a state art competition and got to go to Gainesville, Florida, and take classes at the university there and meet other kooks like ourselves. We got their addresses so we could send them our "newsletter." Later we actually put one out to tell the folks what we were up to...it started to catch on. When we went to art school it came along and grew. After a falling out with my by-then roommate, I realized I was doing all the work on "Half N Half" (an homage to the masses of coffee we drank on the trip and as a reflection on our equal shares in it), so I decided to start new and whole and kept the dairy theme with MOO juice. It started off as a way to avoid writing letters to all of our friends and developed slowly but surely with the help of the MOO staff into the zine it is today.
