Plazm Magazine

The latest surprise package to land on my doorstep, Plazm Magazine. This thing is heaaaavy – I’m bicep curling it right now. It’s pretty new too, it’s only been around since 1991!!! Yeah, that kinda speaks for itself. The Portland-based magazine has had contributions from roughly a billion artists and musicians (proof)! Thanks Sarah, you’re awesome!

    Oooh.

    I used to love Plazm. For some reason, I thought they had gone out of business. The last issue I got was 13. Hmmmm… need to catch up 🙂

  • You can watch an intern’s hand turn every page of every issue leading up to this one here:

    So do they send them to you for publicity or do they just love you?

  • It’s because Booooooom! is awesome and so is Jeff!

    It’s nice to see high quality publications like Plazm still around.
