Not your typical publication.
This isn’t the wholesome magazine that you would expect to find here in the bible belt. This isn’t unicorns and sugar plums, this is real life.
With the new projects and publications that are being created here in Evansville, this one is a breath of fresh air. Grinding Daisies has an alternative way of looking at life, and that is something so refreshing, and something that honestly Evansville needs.
Stories from Religion, Abortion, sobriety, and even plugs for businesses fill the pages of this edgy 'zine. Hearing from like minds that we are all messed up, and have issues is something that is nice to hear. Knowing that you aren’t the only one in town dealing with a drug problem, is way more reassuring than one would think.
This publication is right on the line of what is acceptable to be published in this town, and they even push that envelope. With the website, they are also able to print stories that some may have trouble stomaching in the actual issue.
People have stories. People have weird shit that happen to them, day after day. Reading about it really can make you realize you are not alone. You want to learn more about the certain topic or the people who write about it.
To say that this is a community outreach project would be accurate. They are pulling authors, artists, musicians, and just about whomever to create the best product that they can, and I must say they are doing an excellent job.
Launch party for issue 2 is tonight at the PG, and the issue will be available on site. Pick up a copy, read it, and become one with the awesome community that these Evansville dudes are trying to create.
