~*Contributor Feature: Chris Scott*~ #INTERNETISSUE

image


OUR #INTERNETISSUE WILL BE AVAILABLE JULY 30 IN OUR ETSY STORE!!! In a craze of excitement we asked our contributor Chris Scott some questions about his part in the new issue and the interwebz:

1. Tell us about the concept of your Runcible Spoon story this issue.
I’ve always been fascinated by people who were able to grab popular twitter handles of common words early on and never gave them up. Like @lamp or @mars or @flower (I haven’t actually looked at these handles yet, so who knows what’s there.) So the idea of trying to organize a dinner party with the people who hold the twitter handles for key ingredients of a dish really appealed to me.

2. Do you actually have a good recipe for lasagna you can share?
Unfortunately, I don’t. I love lasagna but it seems a bit daunting to cook.

3. Tell us one more time about your Becky tweet (just kidding - but maybe something here plugging in another project you’re working on that you want to share?)
Hmmmm I’m working on some children’s book manuscripts, which is a lot of fun and very challenging, and I also review movies I haven’t actually seen here: http://www.reviewsofmoviesihaventseen.com/

4. What is the worst/best part of the internet?
The best part is the internet’s capacity to allow people who might never have crossed paths otherwise to connect with and learn a lot from one another. So that’s a really great opportunity to deepen one’s understanding of people and develop a greater sense of empathy. However, the internet also has the capacity to make this more difficult because there will always be an inherent detachment to it. It’s probably a little too easy to forget those are real people on the other side of the screen who are trying and fumbling and struggling with a lot of the same things you are.

5. Is “Yas Queen” still cool to say, or is that not on fleek anymore?
I think anything’s cool to say if you like saying it, especially something like “Yas Queen” which has a very supportive and empowering connotation to it.

The Runcible Spoon’s 14th issue, the #INTERNETISSUE, will exclusively be for sale at the 2015 DC Zine Fest! 

The #INTERNETISSUE takes a food-focused look at both the early internet, in all it’s early-tech/now-cringeworthy splendor, as well as the current internet, where pointless clickbait and salacious headlines rule.

This issue includes Yelp reviews of 1-star restaurants, a guide on how to host your own South Korean mukbang, a Twitter dinner party, our favorite ASMR food videos on YouTube, 2-D food gifs, and a quiz on what to feed your internet.

Get it at the DC Zine Fest this Saturday, July 25, at the St. Stephen’s Church in Washington, D.C. The event takes place from 11AM to 5PM.

The new issue will be available for the masses on Etsy on July 30.
