Hey, hey, it’s Pride month! So, I’ve got some updated propaganda about that which I’ve got posting to social media.
(As an aside, I tried a while ago to add the rainbow LOVE IS THE LAW design as a tee to my Amazon Merch account, but they rejected it for their own mystifying reasons, which was the second design they rejected, and about when I started to give up on using that service for merch!)
On the other hand, posting rainbow stuff, in Solidarity, like so many other issues, is a great time to grease up the old ban hammer and get a workout swinging for bleachers as certain people crawl out of the woodwork to comment out of the blue. So that’s fun, for some value of fun that’s mostly just smdh.
This week, I announced the call for submissions to Magick, Music and Ritual 16, the Anthology Album for 2021! I’ve already got a few submissions, and will hope for plenty more. I get a bit over excited about these albums, but they are a highlight of my year. I never know what I’ll get, and it’s a fun surprise; then I get to pull together the playlist and share it with everyone. What’s not to like?
In other submission news, I’ve been drafting the next zine. There’s not nearly enough to release an issue yet. I’m about ½ way there though! I need more submissions before Aphelion in July, with enough time to do layout and all the little details.
Consider participating on album or zine! Or, letting someone you know, who would be interested, in on the opportunities!
On a more personal note, I’ve been talking with contractors for a much needed new roof, as my current one is barely there and what is there is leaking, and finishing my new bathroom (replacing a really gross bathroom/shower that’s in an addition that’s falling down!) which has been on hold for, what? 2 years now? Yeah, anyhow, it’d be nice to have that done!
Also, this week, I came down with something or ate something that took me out for a few days. Still feeling a little yucky. But, I’ve been fully vaccinated for long enough that I doubt it was the plague. Still, sucks to be sick.
Don’t forget that as of the 1st of the month, after a year of being exclusive to ongoing Patrons on Patreon and supporting Members of this newsletter, all of Omnium Gatherum posts on the blog for May 2020 are now public. So, go check out what you missed!
Other things this in this week’s newsletter include a silly caption contest, Bulkagov’s The Master and Margarita, another Patron giveaway soon, quotes, book reviews, other anthology updates, refreshing the mini art print merch, and mail call.
And, as always, I worked on various other things on website, blog, and more … Enjoy!
